Attivo Networks Expands Australian Market Presence, Appoints Exclusive Networks as National Distributor

Attivo Networks®, the experts in preventing identity privilege escalation and detecting lateral movement attacks, today announced that it has signed Sydney based Exclusive Networks as its distributor in Australia.

The partnership enables Attivo Networks to accelerate its overall business growth and meet regional demand among large and mid-market public and private sector enterprises. Exclusive Networks will enhance its portfolio of products with the Attivo ThreatDefend® Platform, which provides unparalleled attack prevention, detection, and adversary intelligence collection based on identity security, data concealment, and cyber deception threat detection technologies.

Distribution rights include the Attivo Identity Threat Visibility bundle, the only solution of its kind to provide end-to-end analysis of identity and entitlement exposures and risks on endpoints, Active Directory (AD), and the cloud, and the Identity Detection and Response (IDR) bundle, which detects identity-based attacks that leverage credentials and Active Directory.

The appointment of Exclusive Networks in Australia follows a successful and close working relationship between the two companies in New Zealand over the past 12 months. Attivo will now gain broader market access for its solutions among Australian systems integrators and leverage Exclusive Networks’ deep customer relationships and sales capability to enhance its local go-to-market.

“Having partnered with Exclusive Networks in New Zealand for the last year and seeing the value that they have brought, I’m very excited to extend the relationship to Australia. Attivo’s unique solutions will help the Australian systems integrator and managed service provider community to protect their customers better by filling the Identity detection and response gap that exists in many organisations,” said Jim Cook, ANZ Regional Director, Attivo Networks.

“We are very pleased that after a successful partnership in New Zealand, Attivo decided to deepen our relationship in the ANZ region by appointing Exclusive Networks Pacific in Australia. We are looking forward to introducing them to the market,” said Jonathan Odria, Managing Director Pacific, Exclusive Networks. “Attivo Networks easy to use threat detection solutions are an exciting addition to Australia’s cybersecurity industry, offering a new way forward in combatting cyber-attacks before they even emerge,” added Odria.

Exclusive Networks is a global trusted cybersecurity specialist distributor for digital infrastructure .  The company works closely with key reseller partners who understand both the fast-growing developments in security and have the skills and experience to deploy new solutions for customer benefit.

Attivo Networks will complement the existing large-scale vendor product portfolio that Exclusive Networks has in place with organisations such as LogRhythm and SentinelOne, enabling them to provide companies with the infrastructure they need for business continuity.

In recent months, Exclusive Networks has been assisting customers with supporting their security infrastructure for the new post-pandemic world of work with solutions for remote and centralised workforces, often in multi-cloud environments. The company is now rolling out its go-to-market approach, incorporating Attivo Networks to support the security environments for the part office/part remote agile and secure workforce.

As part of the agreement, Attivo Networks will support Exclusive Networks with joint sales efforts, technical training, certification programs and marketing resources, as well as access to a web-based learning environment. In turn, Exclusive Networks will also incorporate Attivo Networks into its Partner Support Hub to ensure channel partners have all the tools needed to drive mutual business success.

About Attivo Networks
Attivo Networks®, the leader in identity detection and response, delivers a superior defense for preventing privilege escalation and lateral movement threat activity. Customers worldwide rely on the ThreatDefend® Platform for unprecedented visibility to risks, attack surface reduction, and attack detection. The portfolio provides patented innovative defenses at critical points of attack, including at endpoints, in Active Directory, and cloud environments. Data concealment technology hides critical AD objects, data, and credentials, eliminating attacker theft and misuse, particularly useful in a Zero Trust architecture. Bait and misdirection efficiently steer attackers away from production assets, and deception decoys obfuscate the attack surface to derail attacks. Forensic data, automated attack analysis, and automation with third-party integrations serve to speed threat detection and streamline incident response. ThreatDefend capabilities tightly align to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework, and deception and denial are now integral parts of NIST Special Publications and MITRE Shield active defense strategies. Attivo has 150+ awards for technology innovation and leadership.
