Theta Lake added, deepening partnership with Cisco reflects a closed gap in the security market
As the world embraces the permanent shift to distributed working, the creation of sustainable and effective practices for remote collaboration put issues of security and compliance under the spotlight. The new risks inherent in working together apart require new solutions and Cisco solves for this by adding Theta Lake.
Cisco has taken the next step in making it even easier for its users to deploy Theta Lake’s security and compliance tools across its full communications ecosystem, by including it in its Global Price List (CGPL) — expanding availability and streamlining the procurement process directly through Cisco’s distributors, resellers and integrators. Cisco’s commitment to solving this issue for its customers is also reflected in its recent participation in Theta Lake’s recent $12.7 Series A funding round.
Securing collaboration in a chaotic year and beyond
For organizations where security and compliance are primary considerations when deploying UC tools, Cisco customers can purchase Theta Lake through Cisco’s network for sellers and partners. Adding Theta Lake’s software to the corporate security arsenal ensures an additional layer of security, data exposure detection, supervision, and compliance controls to meet every customer’s increasing needs
Without the need to create new contractual arrangements and a new procurement process, every Cisco customer can now take advantage of Theta Lake’s award-winning AI-driven compliance suite, and the security this brings to every byte of communication they create — on any platform. Theta Lake’s VP of Business Development and Operations, Anthony Cresci, explains, “Most enterprises aren’t simply using one UC vendor, they usually have 2 or 3 solutions deployed. Firm’s need a security and compliance vendor to not only have expertise and functionality to cover all UC types, including video, audio, and collaboration chat, as well as have integrations for all of their UC vendors.”
“What’s really exciting is Theta Lake’s Security and Compliance Suite is available on the CGPL for not only Cisco Webex as well as Zoom, RingCentral, Microsoft Teams, Slack, and any of our other integrations”
This means complete protection by ticking one box, which will be greatly reassuring to CISOs and CCOs after a rollercoaster of a year. As there’s no such thing as being mostly or ‘a bit’ in compliance, this solution will let enterprises protect themselves holistically, ensuring a data leakproof system, wherever their people are working.
Trust Theta Lake
It’s been quite a year for Theta Lake too, with its successful funding raise, winning both the Best Security and Best Compliance Product awards with UC Today at the UC Awards 2020, and the recent appointments of Johanna Flower, former Chief Marketing Officer at CrowdStrike, to its Board of Directors, bringing industry-recognised leadership and experience in go-to-market strategy and execution in the cybersecurity market. Rounding out its advisory panel are two new investors and advisors in the form of security and compliance industry leader John Thompson, Chair of Microsoft’s Board of Directors, and Mark Anderson, CEO of Alteryx, and former president of security industry leader of Palo Alto Networks.
Accelerating Theta Lake’s mission to provide world-class collaboration security and compliance to global users, this combination of leading expertise injection with the practical procurement streamlining through the CGPL will help even more security and compliance teams scale their risk detection and resolution for communication security, data loss protection and supervision across the full UC functionality, in 2021. The future looks bright, for secure and sustainable collaboration, for even the most regulated and sensitive industries, as we move into the new normality.
