Softprom will distribute Safe-T’s Perimeter Access Orchestration ZTNA solution in Central and Eastern Europe
HERZLIYA, Israel, and Vienna, Austria, July 21, 2020 – Safe-T® Group Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: SFET), a provider of secure access solutions for on-premise and hybrid cloud environments and Softprom Distribution GmbH, a leading Value Added IT distributor in the Commonwealth of Independent States (“CIS countries”) and European countries, today announced the signing of a distribution agreement, according to which Softprom will promote Safe-T’s Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solutions in Central and Eastern Europe, CIS countries, Georgia and Ukraine.
“Softprom is a highly-valued partner as we look to expand into Central & Eastern Europe” said Avi Rubinstein, Safe-T’s Chief Business Officer. “As one of the fast-growing markets in recent years, we consider Central and Eastern European markets an important target within our indirect go-to-market strategy. Safe-T was recently named a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s June 2020 Market Guide for Zero-Trust Network Access and we believe that with its diversified distribution network in the region, Softprom is a great fit for us to introduce our innovative solutions to this market. We look forward to building our relationship with Softprom and bringing our leading security solutions to new markets across the region.
Safe-T’s ZTNA solutions grant access to applications on a need-to-know basis, while giving users fast and seamless access to the resources they need. Safe-T’s newest development, ZoneZero™, enables the organization to adopt a Zero-Trust Network Access architecture without getting rid of its virtual private networks (VPN).
Gartner’s June 2020 Market Guide for Zero-Trust Network Access1 provides that by 2022, 80% of data-center and cloud-based applications will be accessed using zero-trust network solutions whereas by 2023, 60% of all enterprises will phase out most of their remote access VPNs in favor of ZTNA. The report further states that: “ZTNA provides controlled identity- and context-aware access to resources, reducing the surface area for attack. The isolation afforded by ZTNA improves connectivity, removing the need to directly expose applications to the internet”.
“Today, when people widely use remote work, ZTNA is extremely important and we are confident that our partners and their customers will value Safe-T’s solutions,” said Paul Zhdanovych, Managing Director at Softprom.
