Exclusive Networks UK Strengthens Cloud Infrastructure Portfolio with New Vendors


Extra opportunities for partners as addition of Arista Networks, Opengear, RSTOR and ZeroFOX coincides with more team skills and resources to design, create and deploy end-to-end solutions


LONDON, UK – 16th December 2020 – Exclusive Networks UK today announced it has signed Arista Networks, Opengear, RSTOR and ZeroFOX to its cloud infrastructure portfolio. The moves help deliver the breadth of technology solutions that partners need to meet customer demand. They arrive as Exclusive Networks increases sales enablement resources and puts additional dedicated cloud and data centre specialists on hand to design, build and stage use cases and solutions. Arista Networks specifically bridges opportunities across security and data centre and integrates seamlessly with other portfolio vendors to deliver partners greater choice, solution scope and competitive edge.

“We’re helping partners confront new challenges and opportunities with innovation in technology and flexibility in approach,” said Graham Jones, Managing Director at Exclusive Networks UK. “We are very excited to have Arista Networks on our portfolio as it enables many valuable integrations across the data centre and cloud stack, allowing partners to create comprehensive and scalable solutions alongside many of our other vendors. Arista’s standards-based, programmable, open API approach simplifies so much in terms of integration. And that applies both within the cloud infrastructure specialism and as a logical conduit across to our cyber practice.”

The addition of Arista Networks is enabling many new projects thanks to specific integrations with Nutanix, Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, Forescout and others. These architectural designs are developed and supported by a growing team of highly qualified Exclusive Networks cloud and data centre specialists who are constantly acquiring new skills and have rapidly evolved their working practices to adapt to Covid-related lockdown restrictions across the UK. This puts them ready to support partners who lack the internal resource; enabling them to lean on Exclusive Networks knowledge in this dynamic, fast-growth space.

“These unique skills are also used to conduct exhaustive vendor due diligence on new market entrants and emerging technologies, from which we select the best, such as RSTOR, ZeroFOX and Opengear,” added Jones. “Opengear, like Arista, bridges between cloud infrastructure and security with an ability to securely manage critical network components from anywhere that’s vital in a world where business continuity is essential. Similarly, with ZeroFOX, which bridges social, mobile, surface, deep and dark web environments to deliver a powerful solution for digital risk protection. Finally, RSTOR’s innovative edge-distributed object storage play and simplified price model answers a pressing need among enterprise customers grappling with data storage complexity and sprawling cost. All represent another win for Exclusive Networks partners accustomed to gaining fast access to compelling cloud solutions from emerging vendors, and we’re already getting great interest and opportunities.”

David Brown GM & VP of International Markets at ZeroFOX said, “ZeroFOX is very pleased to be selected by Exclusive Networks. Exclusive Networks provides the necessary scale and value-add services to build the best partner ecosystem to support ZeroFOX and our clients.”
