Cylance establishes partnerships in France, Germany and the Middle East to meet rising demands in EMEA for preventive cybersecurity solutions and services
London, June 23, 2016 - Cylance®, the company that is revolutionizing cybersecurity through the use of artificial intelligence to proactively prevent advanced persistent threats and malware, today announced the expansion of its EMEA operations with three leading channel partners.
Since the company's official launch into EMEA in March this year, Cylance has had great success in establishing a presence in UK and the Nordics, with a London office and partnership with Ignition Technology, a leading UK Channel Security Solutions Provider and Coresec, a market leader delivering cyber security and networking solutions in Sweden and Denmark.
As Cylance expands beyond its initial UK and Nordic engagement, the company today announces it has signed a further three new partners across the EMEA region. In France Cylance have signed a reseller partnership with ACENSI Cybersecurity; across Northern Europe, Germany and the UK a partnership with NTT Com Security; and in the Middle East, and Africa a distributor partnership with Starlink. These partnerships are the next step to expedite the growth and adoption of Cylance’s proactive and preventive artificial intelligence technology across the EMEA region.
Benjamin Boulnois, Founder of ACENSI CYBERSECURITY said: "Cybercrime has doubled and ransomware has increased 260 percent in France over the last year. Every day we have new projects and inquiries at the highest levels about Cylance; this is one of those game-changer technologies you see once every ten years."
David Polton, Chief Technology Architect, NTT Com Security said: "As NTT Com Security continues to support our customers delivering a resilient cyber defense architecture, it is essential that we look at new and emerging capabilities and solutions in the market. This helps our customers understand where best to invest their security budgets in order to make the maximum reduction to the business risk they are exposed to.
