News | 21.07.2020
21 July, 2020 — Safe-T® Group Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: SFET), a provider of secure access solutions for on-premise and hybrid cloud environments and Softprom, a leading Value Added IT Distributor in the CIS 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.
Safe-T named as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s June 2020 Market Guide for Zero Trust Network Access. Under the data of Gartner, by 2022, 80% of new digital business applications opened up to ecosystem partners will be accessed through zero trust network access.
By 2023, 60% of enterprises will phase out most of their remote access virtual private networks (VPNs) in favor of ZTNA. Gartner stated 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,”
"Softprom is a highly-valued partner as we look to expand into Central & Eastern Europe”
“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 VPN.
