Code42 has announced the expansion of its channel partner programme across EMEA, as the data loss protection specialist looks to plug the gap left by traditional solutions in channel and reseller security portfolios.

With a greater focus on the UK and German markets, the expansion includes the award-winning Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection product, which offers advanced data exfiltration detection capabilities for security teams to tackle unauthorised or accidental threats in near real-time.

A policy-free alternative to traditional data loss prevention (DLP), Code42 said its technology monitors for data exfiltration across user laptops, external devices, removable media, as well as cloud collaboration tools such as Box, DropBox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Slack.

There’s also a brand-new partner portal, delivering a central destination for partners to access the technical, sales and marketing resources they may require. The self-service hub will help drive efficiency, the firm added, giving channel partners more autonomy to successfully manage their partner business.

“Code42 is committed to helping organisations protect their high-value information from insider threats, and accidental and malicious exfiltration in ways that traditional DLP can’t,” commented Richard Agnew, vice president of EMEA at Code42.

“We’re excited to expand the reach of our data loss protection solution across Europe through our security and IT resellers and partners. The expansion of our channel program will help us address the gap left by traditional DLP solutions.”

Code42’s solution has already received a number of industry accolades in 2019, receiving a Bronze Stevie Award in the Endpoint Security Management Solution category, and was recognised as a Gold Winner in both the 2019 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Awards and the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

It also received two Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards in the categories of Next-Gen Data Loss Prevention and Next-Gen Insider Threat Protection.
