Nottingham, UK; 19th September 2018 – Value-added IT security distributor Alpha Generation Distribution (part of the 4SEC Group) announced today a new partnership with endpoint protection and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) specialists CoSoSys.
In a climate of rising compliance and hard-to-manage endpoints, Alpha Generation partners with CoSoSys to bring robust endpoint protection to the UK market.
An established leader in the space, CoSoSys provides Endpoint Protector – an award-winning way to secure every endpoint a user interacts with, including Windows, Linux, and macOS workstations as well as mobile devices. Combining policy-based enforcement with context and content scanning, it’s a valuable proposition for a market that faces increased regulation around cybersecurity and data privacy.
“We’re looking forward to a fruitful collaboration with Alpha Generation,” says Roman Foeckl, CEO and Founder at CoSoSys. “Data Loss Prevention is a vital component of any data security strategy and, with the rise of data protection regulations like GDPR, organisations can’t afford to turn a blind eye to the vulnerability of sensitive information in their networks.”
While Endpoint Protector offers enterprise-grade DLP, it is uniquely accessible to small and medium businesses who may be lacking an existing solution. Endpoint Protector is made up of five individual modules: Device Control to monitor and manage devices, Content Aware Protection to scan data before it leaves the endpoint, Enforced Encryption to encrypt, manage and secure USB storage devices, eDiscovery to find and encrypt or delete sensitive data at rest, and Mobile Device Management to cover iOS and Android devices. The solution is also available in a choice of deployment models, including both virtual and hardware appliances.
As a result, smaller businesses and end users can get the protection they need in a way that makes good business sense.
“We strongly believe that small and medium-sized businesses and end users should take full advantage of the performance benefits of mobility, portability and communications solutions, without compromising security,” adds Foeckl.
Chris Walsh, Sales Director at Alpha Generation, says: “DLP is an established technology, but its implementation can be difficult and time-consuming, and a poor DLP implementation can restrict productivity in favour of security. CoSoSys addresses this with a more intuitive, uncomplicated approach – even allowing end-user organisations that have previously seen DLP as ‘too hard’ to quickly deploy an effective solution.”
For the 4SEC Group, bringing CoSoSys to the UK channel is continuing a drive to deliver comprehensive and complete coverage across the major risks today’s businesses are facing.
“We’re delighted to be working with CoSoSys on developing their channel business,” says Grahame Smee, Group Managing Director at 4SEC Group. “It’s another example of a vendor relationship that fits with our strategy of complete coverage including resellers, system integrators and service providers. I’m sure we’ll see some great success together.”
