One of Germany’s fastest growing tech firms has chosen Yorkshire-based cybersecurity distributor Brigantia to help expand its presence in the UK.
Hornetsecurity, which is Europe’s leading email cloud security provider with a presence in 11 countries, has set up a strategic partnership with Brigantia. The deal will give it access to Brigantia’s network of resellers throughout the UK and Ireland and support its plans to become a market leader in the UK in the next 12 months.
It follows Hornetsecurity’s acquisition of the Poole-based email security provider Everycloud in January.
Hornetsecurity’s product is unique in covering all the key areas of email security, including spam and virus filters, legally compliant archiving and encryption and including best in class technologies. It offers advanced threat protection for users of Microsoft 365 as well as other email systems.
Daniel Blank, COO of Hornetsecurity, said the company had chosen Brigantia due to its expertise and quality standards: “We see great potential for our innovative cloud security services in the UK and are really excited about our new partnership with Brigantia, whose large reseller network will allow us to extend our footprint and partner base.
“I am sure that this collaboration will lead to high levels of customer satisfaction and we are committed to continuously expanding our already large UK team to ensure we provide the best possible service. Our goal is to become the leading cloud security vendor for managed service providers in the UK market within one year.“
Martin Wright, Managing Director of Brigantia, which is based in Ripon with an office in London, added: “Brigantia are very pleased to have agreed a long-term distribution agreement with Hornetsecurity. With more companies moving to the Microsoft 365 cloud, and more staff working from home, the number of email attacks has risen sharply.
“Hornetsecurity’s next-generation solution is the most sophisticated of its type we have seen, offering advanced protection against threats like CEO fraud and ransomware, and a whole range of features to help them comply with GDPR and other standards.“
