French security VAD Exclusive Networks, a specialist in digital infrastructure cybersecurity, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement in France with BitSight, a global reference in cybersecurity rating. This new partnership with a reference player completes Exclusive Networks' catalogue, by offering a cybersecurity rating solution for its partners.
For Exclusive Networks, this agreement confirms its role as a leading player in the market, with a solid experience in the integration of new technologies, and a recognized know-how in partner recruitment via its pan-European network. Exclusive Networks is adding a cybersecurity rating solution that was not yet part of its catalogue, allowing it to reassure its partners and their customers with a tool that is already a criterion for cyber insurance premiums.
BitSight is a cybersecurity rating company providing reliable data and information for risk-based decision making for insurers, investors, businesses and governments worldwide. As a leading player, BitSight is behind the world's first cybersecurity rating platform. To help organisations manage cyber risks, the company translates technical issues into quantifiable data, produced by analysing 23 security vectors. The BitSight rating is thus a confidence index that allows an organisation to measure its own security performance, quantify and mitigate risks, and purchase cyber insurance policies.
In support of BitSight's new business model, Exclusive Networks will create a network of resellers for this reference partner. The two players have met again at the 15th edition of the International Cybersecurity Forum on 5, 6 and 7 April 2023 at the Grand Palais in Lille.
"BitSight is delighted to be working with Exclusive Networks as a channel partner in France", said John Nelson, Senior VP, Global Channels & Partnerships at BitSight. "As part of our global expansion of the BitSight partner program into international markets, Exclusive Networks will play a key role in our growth strategy in 2023."
"Exclusive Networks is a key part of our business approach, distribution strategy and expansion in the EMEA region", said Xavier Artiguebieille, vice president of EMEA sales at BitSight. "This partnership will enhance our relationships with businesses and organisations in France, and expand our partner community to reach new customers in local regions."
"We are delighted with this partnership which allows us to enrich our portfolio and add a missing brick to our cybersecurity rating system", adds Stéphane Iaïch, Vendor Alliances & Marketing Director.
