Exclusive Networks becomes sole distributor for Thales

Antwerp, July 9, 2020 – Exclusive Networks, the Belux leading value-added distributor for innovative Cybersecurity & Cloud technologies, announces today that it is currently Thales’ and Gemalto’s sole distributor of its digital identity and data protection solutions in the Belux region.

Exclusive Networks has worked with Thales group for more than 5 years in Belux, and will look to build on this relationship as part of the new arrangement – educating organisations on the risks they face and how they can overcome them.

As part of the agreement, Exclusive Networks will invest significantly by offering not only advanced technical training to ensure both its staff and resellers are up to speed on industry issues and how Thales’ solutions can help solve them, but also by providing sales and marketing support.

Dirk Geeraerts, VP Sales EMEA Identity & Access Management at Thales, said:

“With the high demand from the Belux markets, we needed to enhance the support and investment from our distributor to accelerate our current growth whilst continuing our work to educate businesses on how best to protect what matters most, their data. Exclusive Networks’ proactivity, great technical team and strong relationships with its resellers makes them the preferred partner. Working together, we’re confident that we will maximise opportunities to help organisations achieve their data protection and access management objectives in line with the changing requirements.”

Ben Aelbrecht, Belux Country Manager at Exclusive Networks, commented:

“We are very excited to become Thales’ sole distributor in the Belux region. Experience has taught us that a true partnership based on sole distribution benefits all parties as it allows us to invest more heavily and show real value back to both our partners and vendors. To be able to fully support and advance Thales’ growth plans, demands significant investment and we will look to do this through our technical, sales and marketing teams.”
