Nuvias UK has expanded its cyber security portfolio through a new partnership with automated security validation specialist Pentera.

The Infinigate Group company will distribute Pentera’s security validation platform to the UK enterprise market and help support its expansion with pre- and post-sales expertise, technical support, and training programmes.

Nuvias will also provide a full demonstration and proof of concept facilities, as well as in-house marketing support.

Pentera’s platform emulates adversary techniques across the entire IT attack surface, continuously challenging existing cyber security controls to provide an actionable roadmap to reduced security exposure.

The company said its agentless, rapid-deployment approach enables security teams to tackle the ever-expanding threat landscape with confidence.

“Working with an innovator like Pentera to identify and mitigate critical cyber security gaps is an exciting prospect,” said Justin Griffiths, MD at Infinigate UKI. “We value their real-world approach to security validation and look forward to adding this automated technology to our cyber security portfolio.

“Building on the existing partnership with Cloud Distribution, part of the Infinigate Group, we are bringing this highly-demanded cyber security offering to a wide mix of partners, including SIs and SPs.”

Headquartered in Woking, Surrey, Nuvias distributes a range of services and solutions, providing security, agility and manageability for clients, networks, and cloud technology offerings via its 1,600-strong partner network.

Over the last year, the company has been on a significant growth journey. Back in April 2022, Nuvias expanded its presence in eastern Europe through the acquisition of Bucharest-based Netsafe.

The distributor itself was then acquired by Infinigate Group in July, creating a pan-European cyber security distribution giant that went on to add UK cloud distributor and Microsoft Indirect Provider Vuzion to its ranks.

On the partner front, Nuvias also recently struck a deal to become sole UK distributor for AI threat detection and response provider Vectra.

Steve Smith, Pentera’s AVP of sales for the UK and Ireland, said Nuvias was the “logical choice” to expand its own channel reach and extend its audience across the enterprise segment.

“Our channel-centric approach is a winning strategy in the UK.” He said. “The partnership with Nuvias offers the value-added services and market intelligence tools to help identify the best opportunities for growth. We look forward to further developing our partnership.”
