Exclusive Networks Ireland Picked to Drive Channel Success for Netskope


Complete, mature Netskope Security Cloud Platform resonates with partners and enterprise customers seeking an end to market confusion and composite solutions

DUBLIN, Ireland –  18 September 2020 – Exclusive Networks Ireland today announced commitment from leading  security cloud vendor Netskope on a new value-added sole distribution contract. The deal will support sharply rising enterprise demand for Netskope’s market-leading Security Cloud, with Exclusive Networks growing the Netskope partner base and delivering dedicated in-country expertise along with a wealth of value-creation services. 

 44% of security threats now come from cloud applications and services, and more than 50% of DLP violations are cloud related. Netskope was built within the cloud to address the needs of a world in which cloud is pervasive and security needs to follow data wherever it goes. The Netskope Security Cloud provides unrivaled visibility and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device.

 “This is great news for channel partners in Ireland because Netskope is gaining significant traction in the enterprise market through its ability to deliver on a very wide range of important security use cases from a single platform,” said Gerry Sheldrick, Country Manager at Exclusive Networks Ireland. “The alternative is piecing together disparate elements of a cloud-based security architecture that struggles to keep pace with the needs of secure digital transformation. Netskope consistently shows true market leadership, going way beyond CASB and the limitations of legacy secure web gateways. Its technology is clearly differentiated and the timing is ideal to capitalise on the many opportunities around cloud security.”

 The compelling nature of Netskope’s technology vision is demonstrated by the growth in its customer base over the last 6-12 months, while its high growth ambitions and strong delivery capabilities are underlined by a recent $340m investment injection led by Sequoia Capital, bringing the total raised by the firm to approximately $740m.

 “Netskope’s growing set of cloud solutions, that cover a TAM of $20bn, allows the channel to invest in one solution that can help secure their customers through a 3-5 year digital transformation journey. The true opportunity is not just reselling Netskope but the continuous supporting implementation and consultancy services that customers need as they transform their security to deal with the ever rising tide of data that is moving to the cloud. Exclusive Networks “gets it” and has made significant investments in the skills and resources to address this space,” said Andre Stewart, VP & GM, EMEA at Netskope. “I like the way Exclusive Networks understands digital transformation, security, and the unceasing shift to the cloud. We are looking to Exclusive with their wide partner base and proactive marketing as a catalyst for new opportunities!”
