Greenbone Networks, a leading provider of vulnerability management, today announced it is partnering with UK-based managed services company, Nouveau Solutions Ltd, to boost the availability of its vulnerability management solutions in the UK market. The deal means Nouveau, which delivers a range of IT, network and managed services to more than 500 UK organisations, will now offer the Greenbone Security Manager appliances as part of its cybersecurity portfolio.
To help its customers improve their security posture, Nouveau has developed a Security Lifecycle Process; a proven methodology that enables organisations to protect their infrastructures against rapidly emerging cybersecurity threats. Greenbone’s solutions will play a strategic role in this process, by enabling Nouveau’s team of managed services experts to automatically identify vulnerabilities in its customers’ infrastructures, while at the same time, close these gaps.
Nouveau, which has a range of commercial and public sector customers, anticipates particular demand for these vulnerability management services from UK health providers.
“UK organisations – especially in the health sector – are still smarting from the WannaCry attacks, when hackers exploited a well-known vulnerability in order to spread their malware and hold entire organisations to ransom. No one wants to run the risk of a similar attack, so organisations are increasingly turning to vulnerability management solutions to pinpoint and close weak spots in their infrastructures,” said Andy Stevens, Business Unit Director of Nouveau. “This is a very timely partnership with Greenbone. Its industry-leading vulnerability management system is a great complement to the solutions we offer at Nouveau and its hands-on approach to working with the channel makes it the ideal partner.”
Dirk Schrader, chief marketing officer at Greenbone, added: “Nouveau’s approach to cybersecurity – that high-level security cannot be achieved with products alone but as part of a thorough, proactive, resilient solution – is a goal we share at Greenbone. This is an exciting partnership for us and we are looking forward to working with and learning from Nouveau and the wealth of expertise it has to offer.”
