Following a successful partnership in Germany, France and Italy, value-added distributor Exclusive Networks and IoT security company ForeScout Technologies have signed an agreement to distribute the latter’s IoT security solution in the UK.
Exclusive Networks says that by providing agentless visibility and control of devices the instant they connect to a network, the ForeScout visibility platform represents a big sales opportunity for resellers. ABI Research forecasts the number of connected devices to reach 29 billion by 2020.
According to an IDC study, organisations that deploy the ForeScout platform identify 24% more devices on their networks, experience 42% fewer network-related security breaches and achieve a 392% ROI over five years.
Jonathan Corini, the recently appointed ForeScout vice president of worldwide channels, said: “We are thrilled to work with Exclusive Networks for their expertise, global scale and portfolio of best-of-breed vendors and partners. We are impressed by their agility and ﬂexibility, and we are already delivering results together.”
