Exclusive Networks has announced a worldwide distribution agreement with Device-Identity-as-a-Service provider Infinipoint to help organizations expand their zero trust network architecture to devices.
According to a joint announcement, Infinipoint’s Device-Idenity-as-a-Service (DIaaS) solution is designed to enable the critical device pillar of the zero trust approach and extend a zero trust security posture to devices via a single sign-on authorization integrated with risk-based policies and one-click remediation for non-compliant and vulnerable devices.
The distribution arrangement will first focus on mid-market partners in Europe and extend across global territories starting in early 2022.
Exclusive Networks hopes to support Infinipoint’s growth targets through net new opportunities and by capitalizing on technology integrations – including SASE, MFA and Zero Trust – and alliances from within its vendor portfolio.
The company says DIaaS has been gaining significant traction, and the cybersecurity distributor hopes to build on the demand to accelerate and scale globally through its ecosystem of over 18,000 channel partners.
In a statement, Andy Travers, executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Exclusive Networks, says partners have struggled most with extending zero trust to devices because those solutions haven’t existed.
“That’s all changed with Infinipoint and DIaaS,” Travers said. “Enterprises know that implementing the zero-trust for devices piece right is essential – and with Infinipoint we’re breaking down that barrier. It’s a great solution and fits perfectly into our cyber ecosystem. DIaaS also naturally supports a multitude of consumption models which makes it readymade for scaling out globally via our X-OD on-demand platform.”
Ariel Kriger, vice president of global sales and business development at Infinipoint, said in a statement that the company is the first and only to provide SSO authorization integrated with risk-based policies and self service one-click remediation for vulnerable devices.
Kriger called Exclusive networks the “natural choice” to support the company’s market acceleration.
“Extending a zero-trust security posture to devices remains an essential and urgent requirement for every work-from-anywhere workforce,” Kriger said. “And to do it properly you have to do it by design, with adaptive access controls acting on device context, continuously checking device posture not just at the point of access – all the while not burdening the IT department or negatively impacting end user productivity. None of this is easy to do, but we’ve done it and now partners and their customers can reap the benefit.”
