VAD Cloud Distribution, a Nuvias Group Company, specialising in ‘Cloud First’ Innovative & Disruptive Cyber Security, Networking & SaaS Solutions, has named Deep Instinct as the first new vendor added to its portfolio since joining the Nuvias Group. Deep Instinct uses a proprietary deep learning framework to predict and prevent previously unseen cyberattacks before they can infect a victim’s environment. This bold prevention-first promise is backed by a €2,3m warranty against both ransomware attacks and false positive alerts.
Cloud Distribution is launching the new partnership to their channel in a ‘Mystery Vendor’ introductory webinar, following a campaign where interesting snippets about the new vendor were revealed to target VARs and MSSPs over the course of a few weeks. New channel partners will benefit from the Cloud’s Partner Growth Services including lead generation and co-branded marketing campaigns, sales and SE training and pre- and post-sales support, to build pipeline without the need for costly upfront investments. Deep Instinct recently closed its Series D with €150m, after receiving an additional investment of €56m by Chrysalis Investments Ltd, part of Jupiter Asset Management.
The company’s deep learning Deep Neural Network (D-brain) technology is the world’s first and only purpose-built cybersecurity framework using deep learning, the most sophisticated form of AI, to prevent cyber-attacks even in previously unseen malware. Deep Instinct’s deep neural AI software operates like a human brain, to identify zero-day attacks in less than 20 milliseconds before they can infect the endpoint.
According to Adam Davison, Chief Strategy Officer at Cloud Distribution, “the recent global explosion of ransomware attacks breaking through traditional defences illustrates the need for a new, highly innovative approach that stops cyber-attacks in their tracks. We see a huge opportunity for channel partners currently selling Microsoft Defender or XDR and EDR solutions to offer Deep Instinct’s prevention platform as an additional layer of defence to stop ransomware and phishing attacks including mutations that haven’t even been invented.”
Graham Howton, Channel and MSSP Manager at Deep Instinct, adds: “loyalty is the key to success in building a successful channel. We’re 100% committed to the channel model and investing heavily in developing the ecosystem for our chosen channel partners to be hugely successful. Cloud Distribution are the ideal partner for us as they are uniquely positioned to support us in growing our channel to help our partners gain net-new logo customers and drive services revenues at a time of meteoric growth in our business.”
