Safe-T, a provider of secure enterprise file sharing and collaboration solutions, announced today that it has signed a reseller agreement with Network Utilities (Systems) (Netutils), a provider of networking and security solutions in the UK for close to 20 years.

Netutils will introduce secure file sharing and syncing to its substantial customer base, which already relies on the leading IT solutions provider for high performance networking, end-to-end security, and IT service management solutions. Netutils will deliver Safe-T’s solutions to help enterprises share data securely with partners, suppliers and customers, while reducing operational costs and streamlining security business processes.

Demand for solutions that prevent the leakage of sensitive information has increased after recent penalties handed out by The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). In June the ICO fined the Glasgow City Council £150,000 following the loss of two unencrypted laptops, one of which contained the personal information of 20,143 people. Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals was given the largest ever data breach penalty last year, of £325,000 after patient data was sold on eBay. “Alarmingly incidents like these are on the rise”, said Michele Lewington Managing Director at Netutils. “Now is the time for UK organisations to act and reflect on their procedures for keeping sensitive consumer and patient data safe and secure, and Safe-T has the solutions they need to secure data in transit both within and outside the enterprise.”

“We see huge opportunity to strengthen our security offerings and expand our customer base by teaming up with Netutils,” said Roy Matalon, Regional Sales Manager at Safe-T. “Together, we will deliver a proven end-to-end security solution for customers who want to reduce the chance of data leakage by sharing files and collaborating securely.”
