ITQ establishes an exclusive partnership with cybersecurity leader NetClean, integrating Child Sexual Abuse Material detection software into their solutions
March 14, 2023 - Leading Benelux cloud technology company ITQ today announces a partnership with specialist cybersecurity provider NetClean. The deal establishes ITQ as the Benelux region’s exclusive retailer of NetClean’s CSAM (child sexual abuse material) detection software, helping ITQ customers to enhance their business resilience against the growing CSAM threat.
ITQ will deliver NetClean's technology as a managed service, providing ITQ customers with a single seamless solution that offers protection across Windows, iOS and Android operating systems, on mobile, laptop and tablets. The partnership will also provide customers with product management support and specialist advice in the sensitive scenarios that emerge from the detection of CSAM on a corporate device.
Anna Borgström, CEO, NetClean, said: “We’re delighted to be embarking on this new chapter of our growth with ITQ. We know that the threat of CSAM has been accelerated by pandemic-driven changes in working patterns and that presents a challenge to the corporate, legal and commercial responsibilities businesses have. When it comes to self-protection, there are millions of reasons and no excuses.”
Robert Hellings, CEO of ITQ, added: “Helping NetClean in Protecting what Matters, is a valuable addition to our company's sustainability policy and adheres very much to the people-focused company we are. Furthermore, we are fully aware that CSAM concerns additional risks in the customer's organizations. NetClean’s key products – ProActive and ProTective – deliver a specific and absolutely critical dimension of cyber protection. We’re pleased to be able to offer that to our customers, by exclusively partnering with a business that’s also part of the VMware family.”
This partnership is a significant step forward for ITQ’s customer proposition, as well as demonstrating the company's commitment to detect and block access to CSAM and to report it responsibly.
NetClean creates technology products that protect businesses, enhance their resilience, and reduce real-world harm to children. The IT industry remains profoundly unprotected from the threats posed by child sexual abuse material (CSAM). With large-scale shifts to remote work due to the pandemic, companies are facing amplified risks and cracks in their protections. Statistics show that 1 in 500 employees use company devices to access CSAM and employees with this type of criminal behavior expose their workplace to threats such as cyber-attacks, blackmailing, and the dark web.
