Cato Networks has picked Nuvias as its first pan-European distribution partner.
The secure access service edge (SASE) vendor says the new distribution agreement will help it to extend its reach and achieve faster growth throughout EMEA.
The signing comes just weeks after Cato Networks landed its largest-ever funding round at $77m. The Series D funding brought its total investment raised to $202m.
It was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners, several other capital firms and Cato's own CEO and co-founder Shlomo Kramer.
Founded in 2015, Cato Networks claims it enjoyed a 220 per cent increase in bookings in 2019.
Meanwhile, signing Cato adds to Nuvias' existing Advanced Networking portfolio, which includes names like Juniper Networks, Gigamon and PulseSecure among others.
"We're excited to be working with Nuvias and empowering EMEA channel partners to profit from cloud migration and the rest of the digital transformation initiatives driving WAN transformation," said Luca Simonelli, VP of EMEA sales at Cato Networks.
"At a time when enterprises are increasingly looking to adopt network and security services, talented, educated channel partners are needed to answer the challenging requirements facing business customers."
Nuvias' executive chairman, Paul Eccleston, added: "Nuvias' channel partners stand to benefit from an innovative addition to our advanced networking portfolio. Cato's cloud-native platform can be tailored to address a host of business challenges, enabling cost-efficiency and convergence through a simple, transparent architecture. We are excited to support our channel partners by delivering tailored services enabling easily deployed solutions for business."
