Australian managed security services provider Tesserent has signed a deal with data security vendor Nucleus Cyber that will see the MSSP distribute and sell the vendor's solution across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Specifically, Tesserent will distribute NC Protect – formerly called Security Sheriff – finds, classifies and secures unstructured data on-premises, cloud or hybrid environments.

The solution offers a centralised solution that ensures compliance with regulatory and corporate policies at the same time it protects against breaches.

"Tesserent’s focus on delivering comprehensive security to its customer and high level of technical experience makes them the ideal partner to expand our customer footprint in Asia Pacific, which includes Energy Safe Victoria and several Australian government departments," said Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Nucleus Cyber.

Headquartered in Boston, Nucleus Cyber has offices in Melbourne and London. It provides solutions for the "intelligent" workplace.

"Internal and external collaboration continues to evolve rapidly with tools such as Office365, Google Suite and an ever-growing number of social media platforms," Tesserent CEO Julian Challingsworth said.

"For an organisation to be mature and compliant in their collaboration, secure access controls are vital to keeping sensitive company IP and data secured.

"Our partnership with Nucleus Cyber ensures Tesserent can offer a truly secure and intelligent workplace for leading organisations utilising advanced and ever-changing collaboration platforms."

In October 2018, Nucleus Cyber acquired the NC Protect platform from Cyxtera Technologies and launched into the Microsoft Sharepoint, Office 365 and file share space.

Tesserent, which is public listed on the Australian Securities Exchange, closed the half year with revenues of $2,5 million and a net loss after tax of $1.9 million for the period ending 31 December.
