Network, security and storage VAD Nuvias has been appointed as the sole pan-EMEA distributor for Advanced User Behaviour Intelligence leader Dtex Systems' range of insider threat solutions. High-value distribution business Nuvias, whose Cyber Security Practice was created from the former security VAD Wick Hill, will work with Dtex to establish a channel network in EMEA and promote growth for the vendor. The initial focus will be on Belgium, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, with a later second stage aimed at Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Nuvias is distributing the full range of Dtex's monitoring solutions, which provide visibility and intelligence around user behaviour, gathering information from the endpoint. Dtex solutions use proprietary metadata for analysis, matching user workflows to known risks, as well as utilising behavioural learning. This highlights and provides forensic-level, end-to-end workflows to identify users with malicious intent and those who accidentally expose data. Initially, Nuvias and Dtex will create a group of 20 partners, in Benelux and the UK, comprising security-focussed VARs and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). Nuvias will provide strong support with dedicated sales and pre-sales staff, partner training and other services to enable Dtex to scale more quickly and gain momentum in the market place.
Ian Kilpatrick, EVP Cyber Security for Nuvias Group, said: "we are seeing companies become ever more interested in security, thanks to continuing publicity on data breaches and compliance issues such as GDPR. Insider threats from malicious behaviour and bad cyber hygiene have traditionally been underrated but have always been a key element in the level of risk that companies face. Visibility at the endpoint is critical to solving insider threats and this is Dtex’s focus, unlike many other insider threat solutions which concentrate on the network. Dtex can provide a high level of visibility and intelligence around what users are doing as well as proactively highlighting any potential risks before they take place. The market is ripe for this type of solution with recent data breaches drawing increased attention to the need for good cyber hygiene and internal monitoring within organisations."
Christy Wyatt, Dtex Systems CEO, said: "with Insider Threat representing more than half of all known breaches, enterprise customers today need strong analytics solutions and experienced security partners. Nuvias' experience in the security space makes them an ideal partner for Dtex and enterprise customers."
