Cybonet expands in Germany with the addition of Softshell as a distributor
Israel’s Cybonet, an international provider of cyber and information security solutions, is expanding its activity in Germany. Cybonet has signed a distribution agreement with Softshell AG, a German distributor of innovative information security products, which will market and sell Cybonet’s solutions in the German speaking countries.
Last year Cybonet’s activity in Germany included the company showcasing its solutions at the CeBIT 2017 exhibition in Munich and at it-sa 2017 in Nuremberg. Cybonet will again demonstrate its solutions at exhibitions in Germany this year, starting with the conhIT healthcare exhibition, taking place from 17-19 April 2018 in Messe Berlin.
Softshell AG is a value-add distributor which helps innovative cybersecurity vendors expand their business in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Softshell provides both sales and marketing services, as well as innovative IT security, data protection and business productivity products and solutions that enable resellers and their customers to work more effectively with their markets.
As a result of the new partnership, Softshell adds Cybonet’s Cybowall solution for breach detection, network visibility and vulnerability management to its portfolio, as well as the PineApp Mail Secure comprehensive email security solution.
Combining both affordability and functionality, Cybowall is a single security platform engineered for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that delivers those capabilities necessary to identify and mitigate not only active threats, but also potential vulnerabilities within the network, and helps organisations to comply with the GDPR.
96% of all German SMEs have suffered harmful IT security incidents, according to Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Cybonet’s CEO, David Feldman, remarks: “Our current distribution agreement with Softshell deepens the penetration of Cybonet’s robust cybersecurity technology into Germany.
Germany is not only Europe’s leading economy, but home to more than 3.5 million small and medium enterprises which employ around 30 million people and form the backbone of the German economy. These enterprises need comprehensive cyber security solutions, and therefore our Cybowall solution will be at the forefront of our offering to the German speaking market.”
