The move will see ZeroDayLab, whose client portfolio includes European firms across sectors such as banking, financial services, insurance, retail, and e-commerce, combine Glasswall’s unique approach to cybersecurity with their own holistic methods.
Kevin Roberts, managing director at ZeroDayLab said:
“In recent times we have seen threats to cybersecurity increase at an alarming rate, and many businesses have found themselves unprepared and vulnerable to attacks. Having initially been commissioned to conduct an independent penetration test of the Glasswall software and email platform, which it passed with flying colors, we immediately saw the potential benefits Glasswall would provide our customers. Our partnership with Glasswall will cover every angle to provide a uniquely holistic approach to managing risks, which makes this an exciting and beneficial relationship.
“Glasswall Solutions has developed a highly innovative answer to solve the single biggest cyber-threat facing organizations around the world, presented by the corruption of email-bound documents. This threat is currently responsible for 94% of successful attacks, but with Glasswall’s technology and ZeroDayLab’s 360° IT security plan, these attacks are stopped at source. This unique partnership will bring something really special to our clients to provide complete protection,” added Roberts.
With new EU regulations soon coming into effect companies will be required to prove their compliance and protection, or risk facing fines of up to 5% of global revenue. With this in mind, Glasswall and ZeroDayLab have clearly taken steps to strengthen their security services.
Infosecurity spoke to Bob Tarzey, Analyst and Director, Quocirca, about this new partnership and the benefits it will bring to both companies.
“Glasswall is a small UK-based vendor with a niche product, it relies on partners to go to market, so a new partner is good for it. ZeroDayLab is a managed security service provider and needs to provide its customers with SLAs around the level of protection it provides and clearly sees the Glasswall technology as helping it to ensure these.
Glasswall does something very specific, it rebuilds files from scratch to ensure there is no embedded malware – guaranteed good, this will add value to a range of other technologies of use besides them.”
