Gradian significantly strengthens presence on Government's new G-Cloud 11 platform

Year on year, Gradian have strengthened their listing on the Government’s G-Cloud platform (digital marketplace) and this year is no exception.

Notably the G-Cloud 11 expansion includes additional technology listings from both Valimail and Echoworx, and also several listings based on Gradian’s own Value-Added Products. This new emphasis on expanded tech and “home-grown” service offerings mirrors Gradian’s strategic approach to market. Focus is now on enhancing top-tier technologies with the application of a personalised Gradian service wrapper.

The fully expanded listing now comprises:

Gradian Value Added Products
Gradian’s Technical Account Service Plan (TASP™)
Gradian Support for Symantec Products
Gradian’s Managed Configuration Service
Gradian’s Professional Services for Symantec Technology Solution Delivery

Additional Technologies
Valimail Enforce
Valimail Monitor
Echoworx OneWorld Encryption

Symantec Endpoint Defence with Cyber Defence Manager
Symantec Policy Based Encryption Advanced
Symantec’s Web Isolation

Symantec’s SEP Mobile
Symantec’s Email Security Service
Symantec’s Email Fraud Prevention (EFP)
Symantec’s Managed Endpoint Detection & Response
Symantec’s Email Threat Isolation
Symantec’s Web Security Service

With 14 of their listings under the Cloud Software category, Gradian’s 4 “home-grown” service wrappers are also listed under Cloud Support within the below sub-categories:

Planning
Setup and migration
Quality assurance and performance testing
Security services
Training
Ongoing support

A Gradian spokesperson commented on the benefits of their additional exposure on the new framework:

Expanding our presence on G-Cloud 11 with these additional awards enables the public sector bodies to easily take advantage of the additional value Gradian brings to our cherry-picked technology stack. It dovetails perfectly with our initiative to make Gradian easy to work with.

The idea of G-Cloud is to cut out a large proportion of “due diligence” on the part of public sector as this will already have been undertaken prior to listing; it effectively expedites the buying process.

In a nutshell it’s all about increasing peace of mind, the message is that Gradian is a credible and safe pair of hands.

Valimail and Gradian Join Forces to Bring Anti-Phishing Technology to U.K. and European Enterprises

Gradian will sell, implement, and support Valimail's industry-leading anti-phishing suite.

Valimail, the world's leading provider of anti-phishing technologies to stop fake email and restore trust to communications, announced that it has entered into a Premier Partnership agreement with Gradian to make Valimail's solutions available to the U.K. and European markets.

As a Premier Partner, Gradian will be an authorized reseller of Valimail's entire product suite. Additionally, as an Authorized Onboarding Partner for Valimail, Gradian will provide implementation and support services for Valimail products for customers in the U.K. and Europe.

"The European market has been desperately searching for a solution to overcome the inherent problems caused by business email compromise and email phishing attacks," said Damian Acklam, the CEO and founder of Gradian Systems. "Valimail has exactly that. We are excited to take Valimail to the market, start the work of adding trust into the secure email gateway (SEG) environment and make our customers and business partners 'spoof proof.'"

Valimail's suite of services includes:

Valimail Enforce, a fully automated email authentication system that stops unauthorized services and phishers from using a company's domain to send email.

Valimail Defend, an authoritative solution that stops inbound impersonation attacks to ensure that the only emails reaching corporate inboxes are those sent from known, trusted domains.

Valimail Brand Trust, the only product that leverages both BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification) and Microsoft Business Profiles to offer companies a customizable digital watermark for confirming that their emails are authentic.

"Valimail has the fastest, most effective, and most complete solution for stopping fake email on the market, and we look forward to working with Gradian to help protect U.K. and European companies from this persistent threat," said Alexander García-Tobar, the CEO and co-founder of Valimail. "Together, we can put phishing emails where they belong: in the trash bin."

For context, a recent study by the U.K. government found that phishing and fake emails cause more disruption for businesses and nonprofits than any other attack vector. Phishing and business email compromise (BEC) has exploded in the past year, with a 500-percent increase in attacks during 2018, while 60 percent of all companies have experienced spoofed email attacks in the past year.

Additionally, the FBI attributes $12.5 billion in losses to BEC over the past five years. Much of that damage is due to the ease with which attackers can impersonate trusted senders with spoofed "From" headers in emails — a weakness that Valimail corrects faster and more effectively than any other solution.
