Exclusive Networks Signs Vormetric to Bolster Enterprise Data Security Push in Spain

Relationship Capitalizes on Stringent Spanish Regulations Mandating Protection for Personal Data

MADRID, Spain – April 1, 2013 – Exclusive Networks today announced the signing of an agreement with Vormetric, the leader in enterprise data security, to become its distribution partner in Spain. As Vormetric looks to continue its explosive EMEA growth and sign up more partners for its market-leading data protection platform, Vormetric Data Security, the company has turned to Exclusive Networks to engage, educate, enable and energise resellers in Spain.

"Vormetric offers a fantastic opportunity for resellers to address the growing enterprise data protection market as enterprises look to counter Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and meet regulatory requirements," explained Laurent Daudré-Vignier, General Manager at Exclusive Networks Spain. "As organisations adapt to regulations like Spain’s Ley Orgánica 15/1999 de Protección de Datos de Carácter Personal (“LOPD”) and look to develop their strategies to protect sensitive data on premise and in the cloud, Vormetric provides a comprehensive solution to meet their needs.”

"Vormetric strengthens the Exclusive Networks Spain portfolio and makes the solution set for the Smarter Social Enterprise even more comprehensive. Resellers will benefit from Vormetric’s data security solutions and we are very excited to be working with Vormetic to grow the partner base as the company pushes forward with growth and expansion in Spain."

"Enterprises in Spain are being required to protect personal data, be it for regulatory compliance requirements such as LOPD in Spain or to prevent intellectual property breaches. Until now, using encryption to secure large server datasets has been hindered by performance overhead and scalability constraints," said Paul Ayers, Vice President of EMEA Sales at Vormetric. Mr. Ayers continued, "We are looking forward to working closely with Exclusive Networks’ experienced staff of IT security professionals to expand our presence in Spain. They have significant data security and encryption expertise, on-the-ground resources across the region, an extensive reseller channel network and robust enterprise customer relationships."
