Basingstoke, 1st July 2021: Leading technology distributor Exertis has partnered with UK-based cyber security company CyberSmart to offer organisations, no matter their size or expertise, a strong security posture by combatting the threat of cyber-attacks.
CyberSmart’s intuitive platform will support Exertis’ customers by automatically and continuously assessing devices against security and compliance standards, alerting users when these have not been met.
As a result of this partnership, not only will Exertis benefit from a bolstered cybersecurity offering to its customers. In addition, this will enable CyberSmart to reach thousands more companies across the country and be one step closer towards making cybersecurity accessible to all businesses.
“We pride ourselves on making the complex simple and going above and beyond to delight our customers,” says Matthew Swindail, Vendor Development Manager (Security & Cloud) – UK & Europe at Exertis Enterprise. “Our decision to partner with CyberSmart was a no-brainer as they perfectly embody these values.”
“Their platform simplifies cybersecurity by transforming complex regulations into a clear checklist,” Swindail continues. “In a matter of minutes, customers gain full status and visibility of their employees’ corporate and personal devices. We are excited to add CyberSmart to our portfolio and are looking forward to providing these solutions to our channel partners.”
“It is an honour to be working alongside Exertis, a well-respected specialist service provider with tens of thousands of customers. Indeed, to be working with a tier 1 distributor is testament to the fact that there is an ever-growing demand for solutions, such as ours, that champion and empower SMEs to take control of their cybersecurity,” says Tracy Shepherd, Distribution Account Manager at CyberSmart.“We are delighted to see Exertis get involved in this mission.”
This partnership follows a landmark 12 months for CyberSmart, which has seen it secure $10 million in ‘Series A’ funding – achieving a record revenue increase of 300% – turning CyberSmart into a real homegrown success story for the UK tech industry, despite a hugely challenging year for businesses globally.
CyberSmart also makes it easy to demonstrate commitment to security through supporting customers in getting certified in Cyber Essentials, the UK government’s cyber security scheme. Cyber Essentials is a crucial benchmark for robust cyber hygiene practices and serves as proof of a company’s digital resilience.
