Exclusive Networks Africa to enhance security portfolio with HCLSoftware agreement

Exclusive Networks Africa announced a strategic agreement with HCLSoftware, the software business division of HCLTech, which will see the cybersecurity specialist for digital infrastructure add the HCLBigFix endpoint management platform to its existing cybersecurity offering.

Anton Jacobsz, Managing Director of Exclusive Networks Africa explained that the agreement came about due to HCLSoftware’s requirement for a distribution partner with extensive reach into the African continent.

Jacobsz said: “Exclusive Networks Africa’s local footprint, which spans South Africa, the Southern African Development Community(SADC) and Indian Ocean Islands, as well as both West and East Africa, was especially attractive to HCLSoftware due to the company’s focus on local market penetration.”

Pravesh Gosain, Associate Product Management Director – HCLSoftware Intelligent Automation Cloud added:  “In today’s complex, hyper-connected and dynamic technology landscape, it’s important for companies to harness the power of digital transformation, data, security and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver excellence at scale and speed.

“With its rapid adoption of digital transformation projects, HCLSoftware has identified Africa as one of the focal areas for growth across many of its solution verticals, including Digital Workplace and  Enterprise Security, prioritising digital experience, cybersecurity and ensuring personal data protection.”

The companies plan to take a centralised approach to manage and secure diverse endpoints and use unified architecture leveraging AI technology to effectively manage and ensure compliance of all servers, desktops and mobile devices, whether in the office, at home or in the cloud.

Jacobsz said: “From an Exclusive Networks Africa standpoint, the addition of HCLBigFix helps to round out our current portfolio.

“In line with our strategic focus on bringing the industry’s top cybersecurity products to African businesses, HCLBigFix is able to offer the world’s fastest vulnerability remediation, which helps IT operations teams to discover, prioritise and patch critical vulnerabilities, reducing cybersecurity risk in real time. This is of particular importance to today’s CISO in terms of providing cost efficiencies and removing the risk of human error.

“In addition, the solution ensures continuous configuration compliance aligned with industry-standard security benchmarks, and is able to manage every workstation, server and mobile device during its entire lifecycle – from provisioning through retirement,” Jacobsz adds. “These benefits also support the Exclusive Networks global mission of building a totally trusted digital world for all individuals and organisations.”
