Exclusive Networks and Mimecast expands VAD relationship to deliver world class security solutions to Asia

SINGAPORE – February 21, 2023 – Exclusive Networks, a globally trusted cybersecurity specialist for digital infrastructure, today announces the expansion of its partnership with Mimecast, a world class advanced email and collaboration security company. Mimecast has appointed Exclusive Networks as Value Added Distributor (VAD) in key APAC markets of Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. This is in addition to their existing partnership for distribution of Mimecast solutions in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

The partnership will see Exclusive Networks offer Mimecast’s industry-leading email security and collaboration solutions to its network in three key Asian markets – Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia. This will include the cutting-edge Mimecast X1™ Platform which helps organisations safeguard their business communications, people and data through advanced email and collaboration security solutions.

“We are delighted to be able to offer Mimecast’s solutions to our network in Asia” says Brad Gray, Senior Vice President, APAC at Exclusive Networks, “Mimecast is the leading security provider for all aspects of email communication and collaboration tools to protect communications, people, and data. We know from our existing partnerships in EMEA the value that Mimecast brings to Exclusive Networks and organisations who are seeking to protect themselves against cybercrime and we are excited to bring their world-leading technology to our own ecosystem”.

Email and collaboration tools are the entry point for over 90% of cyberattacks. As phishing attempts and data breach incidents rise in the APAC region, Exclusive Networks and Mimecast will work together to mitigate risks and manage complexities for organisations across Healthcare, Legal, Financial Services, Public Sectors and more. Mimecast’s suite of products includes email security and resilience which secures e-mail communications and can integrate into third-party platforms including Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace; Security Awareness and user behaviour which includes training, web security and brand protection; and data retention and compliance.

Exclusive Networks, alongside Mimecast, will aid clients in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong to implement and integrate its innovative business-critical solution into their security network. By leveraging Mimecast’s local network across the three countries, Exclusive Networks will work with resellers and systems integrators to ensure companies, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals, will have robust email security, in addition to the holistic cybersecurity solutions that Exclusive Networks offer organisations.

Commenting on the partnership, Stanley Hsu, Regional VP, Mimecast, Asia, said “With Asia Pacific undergoing a rapid and unprecedented digital transformation, the current network infrastructures are getting increasingly exposed to cyberattacks. Spending on security solutions and services in the region is forecasted to exceed $31 billion this year, an increase of 15.5% from 2021. Given this backdrop, it is imperative that we work closely with the partner community and the wider portfolio of cyber security vendors. We are confident that through our partnership with Exclusive Networks, it will be easier for the channel community to do business with Mimecast by simplifying engagement and further enhance the partnership journey. The collaboration also underscores Mimecast’s strategy of building a strong channel partner ecosystem across the region.”

Mimecast’s Channel Sales Director for ANZ, Craig McGregor comments, “The threat landscape will always be challenging globally, so we are always looking for ways to strengthen our offerings for our partners. Connecting with a global cybersecurity specialist distributor allows us to combine efforts with vendors who complement our offerings – and we are certain Exclusive Networks is the right distributor to do so. We’re looking forward to seeing this partnership develop.”

By leveraging its local network of over 20 offices across 10 countries in the APAC region, Exclusive Networks will work with resellers and systems integrators to ensure companies in Southeast Asia, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals, will have robust email and collaboration security, in addition to the holistic cybersecurity solutions that Exclusive Networks offer organisations.
