Nuvias extends Forcepoint deal to Benelux

Nuvias is extending its distribution agreement with cybersecurity vendor Forcepoint to the Benelux region. Nuvias already serves the company in the DACH and UK markets.

Nuvias Cyber Security will distribute the full range of Forcepoint offerings, such as the recently launched Dynamic Data Protection (DDP) solution which brings together human-centric behaviour analytics and next generation DLP innovations.

DDP is the first Risk-Adaptive Protection solution in Forcepoint’s portfolio, and provides an automated enforcement capability that dynamically adapts. The range also includes Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Web/Email Security, Data Guard and Network Security, all of which integrate into a system with unified policy management, or plug into existing on-premises or cloud environments.

Ian Kilpatrick, EVP Cyber Security for Nuvias, said: “Forcepoint’s reputation as an innovator in the security industry gives them a clear advantage and makes them a key addition to any reseller’s portfolio. Their range of security solutions will increase sales for our channel partners, particularly in areas such as CASB, web security and data management."‎

Neal Lillywhite, vice president of EMEA channels at Forcepoint, said: “We have had a very positive partnership to date with Nuvias in the UK and DACH and are very pleased to be taking that partnership into the Benelux region.

"We can see real dividends from our joint work and alignment across our organisations. We believe now is the time to invest in the kind of valuable services that will help Nuvias channel partners and business customers to implement efficient technology solutions.”

In July 2017, Nuvias acquired Benelux security value added distributor DCB, and Nuvias says it has been investing strongly in the region’s security market since then.  The addition of Forcepoint to the region will help drive growth plans there, including bigger staff numbers and more resellers, the company said.
