ESET, a provider of digital protection solutions has launched the ESET Technology Alliance, an integration partnership initiative that aims to better protect businesses with a range of complimentary IT security solutions that seamlessly integrate with its own solutions.
According to ESET, all members of the technology alliance are strategically selected security companies that specialise in a specific IT security area which complements ESET's product portfolio. The programme's partners are carefully vetted against a set of established criteria to extend "best-in-class" business protection across IT environments.
The company said the first entrant into the ESET Technology Alliance is DESlock, an encryption software company.
"While Middle East organisations are reluctant to report occurrences, data leakage is rampant in the region and is in fact one of the top security threats that IT managers are faced with. In our experience, a vast majority of these leaks can be mitigated by an encryption solution that is implemented in an efficient manner," said Neo Neophytou, managing director, ESET Middle East. "DESlock is a perfect fit for our business. The seamless integration of our solutions will guarantee maximum protection and ease of use for our customers. This partnership is also beneficial to our channel community in the region as they can now offer a robust end-to-end security solution."
Through the alliance, ESET aims to provide a well-established encryption product, simple-to-use application with unique architecture, powerful data encryption to existing or new customers no matter whether they are large or SMBs.
"We have been talking to ESET for a while now and quickly realised that the DESlock and ESET product offerings are highly complementary," said David Tomlinson, managing director for DESlock Ltd. "ESET is renowned for its award-winning IT security solutions and now via the Technology Alliance, ESET can offer full data leakage prevention."
