Exclusive Networks Announces Global Distribution Partnership with Thales

Broadens existing presence across EMEA, APAC, and expands into North America

PARIS – 9th August, 2023 – Exclusive Networks, a globally trusted cybersecurity specialist for digital infrastructure, today announced it has expanded its successful relationship with Thales, creating a global distribution partnership across EMEA, APAC and North America. Building on its partnership to date, Exclusive will double down on the growth of Thales’s Data Security and Identity and Access Management channel business, helping existing partners to scale, recruit and enable a diverse mix of new partners, and leverage its existing vendor portfolio to generate synergistic sales opportunities.

Thales is a worldwide leader in data security and identity and access management. More than 30,000 organisations already rely on Thales to move to the cloud securely with confidence, achieve compliance, and create more value from their software in devices and services used by millions of consumers every day. Their solutions verify identities, grant access to digital services, and secure vast quantities of sensitive data at rest, in motion and in use. As the world becomes more connected, Thales makes it more secure.

Exclusive’s long standing and successful partnership with Thales has been built on common foundations. With a strong track record of growth and headquartered in France, both are specialists in cybersecurity, are extending their ambitions to the cloud, and have a shared vision of trust through cyber protection.

We are excited about the new global partnership with Thales, taking our relationship to the next level, building on our success across EMEA and APAC, and expanding our established Thales practice into North America,” explained Denis Ferrand-Ajchenbaum, SVP Global Business Development and Ecosystems at Exclusive Networks. “Data Security and Access Management are key pillars in any cybersecurity strategy, and we see significant growth opportunities for our channel partners around these technology areas. We also see strong synergies within our existing vendor ecosystem to generate cross-selling and upselling opportunities for partners to drive incremental business. We are very much looking forward to the next chapter in our partnership as we continue to scale existing territories, penetrate new regions, and drive future growth.

Commenting on the global partnership, John Polly, Vice President, Global Channel and Alliances at Thales said;

Exclusive has become a trusted and valued partner to Thales over the years. Its specialist focus on cybersecurity, global reach, value-added services, and a diverse ecosystem of channel partners ranging from regional specialists, Managed Services Providers and Global Systems Integrators makes it somewhat unique in the market. I look forward to the next stage of our partnership.
