Cloud Distribution Launches Spikes Security, Bringing Innovative Web Malware Isolation to UK Channel Partners

VAD enables partners to take advantage of market transforming solution that gives complete protection from primary attack vector

Reading, UK, xx January 2016 – Cloud Distribution, the security, networking and storage next-generation value added distributor (VAD), has today announced a distribution agreement with Spikes Security, the isolation security company, bringing channel partners a game-changing solution to a deepening cyber security crisis.
“Spikes Security represents an exciting and massive revenue opportunity for partners and we'll be collaborating closely with them to build a compelling proposition and provide the tools to identify sales opportunities and convert into revenue growth,” said Adam Davison, Product and Marketing Director, Cloud Distribution.
The web browser is a critically important application for businesses, but is undermined by its lack of security. It has become the primary attack vector for cyber attacks on organisations, providing a clear path for malware to penetrate corporate networks and infect end point devices. Spike Security's Isla Web Malware Isolation Appliance addresses this major cyber security concern by preventing all web malware from entering the corporate network, thus providing organisations complete protection against malware attacks.
“The traditional method of stopping browser-borne malware is to deploy detection based technologies, but attacks are increasingly more complex and often undetectable,” explained Franklyn Jones, CMO at Spikes Security. “Our Isla solution has been proven through independent tests to prevent 100% of these attacks from infecting secure devices inside the corporate network.  Cloud Distribution is the ideal partner for us to work with because they are passionate about disruptive technologies and understand how to bring innovative solutions to market. With its support and impressive range of services for partners, our growth in the UK security market looks assured.”
Cloud Distribution is Spike Security's first distributor in the UK and will be responsible for developing the channel and signing partners to the security vendor's Transform Partner Program. The VAD will be recruiting a limited number of partners, to ensure margins remain high, who are focused and experienced in delivering powerful, disruptive security technology to customers.
The Spikes Security Transform Partner Program includes Silver and Gold levels and provides partners with benefits including preferred partner discounts, personal engagement from Spikes sales, marketing and support teams, opportunity protection and assistance in developing sales tools, web content and digital marketing programs.

Cloud will also provide marketing support to partners with its unique Altitude Marketing Services to help partners quickly and easily go to market and create a sales pipeline and new
