BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ManagedMethods, Inc., a leading provider of cloud security solutions, today announced its expansion into France with the signing of Exer as the company's first France-based Value Added Distributor. Exer will be distributing Cloud Access Monitor, ManagedMethods' Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) product, in France, providing visibility and control of how cloud application data is stored, accessed and shared in Google G Suite, Office 365, OneDrive, Box, Slack, and many other cloud applications, as well as scanning email for malware and objectionable content.
The rapid adoption of cloud applications is fueling the need for cloud security; Forrester Research predicts the worldwide cloud security market will grow to 3.5 billion dollars in 2021. "Data protection issues in France such as email and document access, Shadow IT, and especially the impending GDPR regulations are creating a huge opportunity for ManagedMethods' CASB solutions," said Charlie Sander, CEO of ManagedMethods. "We're pleased to partner with an experienced IT security company like Exer to meet France's growing demand for enterprise cloud security."
Today, employees work from anywhere and access business data using personal devices such as tablets, phones, and laptops. While the technology to support this new way to work has evolved, security protocols haven't kept up, and traditional perimeter security solutions such as firewalls don't monitor activity in the cloud. Cloud Access Monitor fills this critical gap in security, removing the risks of using Google G Suite, Office 365 and other cloud applications.
"The ease of deployment and use makes ManagedMethods' CASB solution a perfect fit for Exer's Security portfolio," said Michel Grunspan, CEO of Exer. "We look forward to working with our major VARs to successfully evangelize the Cloud Access Monitor solution."
Founded in 1986, Exer is a French Value Added Distributor, specializing in network security, secured mobility, and managed services. Working with more than 600 French VARs and integrators, Exer stands as an expert, thanks to highly skilled presales, sales, and support teams, certified on the main leading technologies in the market.
