[2nd Sept, 2021] - Altinet are pleased to announce their latest cyber security partnership with Human Layer Security experts Tessian. Through their combination of machine intelligence, deep content inspection, and stateful mapping of email relationships, Tessian will empower Altinet's customer base to turn their email data into a strong defence against email security threats.
With a unique approach of focusing on the human layer of an organisation, rather than the machine layer, Tessian has been recognised by industry analysts like Gartner, Forrester, and 451 Research for their new take on data loss prevention, and its effectiveness compared to legacy SEG and DLP solutions.
In addition to this partnership benefiting Altinet in how we can serve and protect our new and existing customers, it will also help Tessian to expand its reach across the UK and provide the company with the added assistance of our in-house technical experts, who will help with the product delivery and on-going support for these new customers. On top of this, the marketing teams from both Tessian and Altinet will regularly collaborate to launch fresh and exciting campaigns that encapsulate the goals and values of both companies.
“We are delighted to partner with Altinet - a partner that is so well in-tune with its customers and their needs,” says Matt Smith, Chief Strategy Officer at Tessian. “Human error is the leading cause of data breaches in organisations today because people make mistakes, break the rules, and can be hacked. By working with trusted partners like Altinet, we can help more CISOs and CIOs solve this major security challenge, and accelerate our mission of securing the human layer in the enterprise.”
"Altinet are incredibly excited to announce this new partnership," said Daniel Bailey, Director at Altinet Ltd. "There's no doubt that human error is one of the biggest vulnerabilities for most businesses today - whether they realise it or not - so Tessian's dedication and expertise in this area will definitely help to fill that security gap for many of our customers."

To ensure they can offer each of their customers the right solution to meet their individual needs, Altinet work with a wide range of global vendors, making sure to have a growing portfolio of innovative technology to match the fast-paced developments of the modern threat landscape.
Altinet pride themselves on the quality of service provided by both their Account Managers and Technical Support Engineers, who are consistently given high praise in customer reviews thanks to the detailed training provided during onboarding processes, and the attentive and personal approach taken with customers.
