Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS and Vade, a global leader in AI-based email threat detection and response that protects over one billion mailboxes worldwide, have announced a collaboration to further enhance Arrow’s security portfolio in Europe.
Under the distribution agreement, Arrow adds Vade for M365 to its cloud platform, ArrowSphere, and makes the solution available to its channel partners. Vade’s dedicated offering for Microsoft 365 enhances Arrow’s suite of hosted solutions for resale, allowing managed service providers to deliver additional value, gain higher margins, and realise greater monetisation of their service offerings.
Vade for M365 is a cybersecurity solution that provides comprehensive, automated protection before, during, and after attacks. The solution uses artificial intelligence, including machine-learning mechanisms patented in the United States, to detect unknown, highly targeted threats, such as phishing, spear phishing, malware, and ransomware.
Vade integrates seamlessly with Microsoft 365 via API, making it invisible to hackers and easy to deploy, use and manage. Augmenting Microsoft's native protection against email-borne cyberattacks, Vade for M365 offers a native user experience and a 64% catch-rate improvement over Exchange Online Protection.
“Security remains one of the major barriers to enter the cloud. We offer the right technologies and skills to help our customers overcome the security objections coming from the end user community”, says Alexis Brabant, vice president sales for Arrow ECS in EMEA. “Vade offers an innovative and integrated protection to complement email security and Microsoft 365.”
ArrowSphere, the cloud delivery and management platform, enables the IT channel by providing a single platform to purchase and manage cloud products and services, monitor activity and consumption with embedded business intelligence tools, sell own services with a customisable storefront, and simplify the billing process. Vade for M365 is completely aligned with this strategy. With the integration of Vade into ArrowSphere, Arrow allows its channel partners to increase their business around Microsoft 365 with a minimum of investment.
“Joining forces with Arrow is key to expand our international business and accelerate our capacity to access new markets and managed service providers”, said Maya Gershon, chief revenue officer at Vade. “Through the ArrowSphere cloud platform, we’re offering an easy-to-deploy solution that allows managed service providers to create a managed security offer and to benefit from higher margins.”
