Revenue is generated through a monthly or annually recurring fee per user for the selected products. Its distribution model is based on signing up channel partners resellers of cloud services and telecommunications companies serving businesses.
The company, which debuted on the Canadian Securities Exchange in 2019, is transitioning at a time when the cybersecurity market is set to exceed US$300 billion by 2024, according to Global Market Insights.
How it is doing:
Demand for GlobeX’s Swiss-hosted secure document management and secure communications cloud services has ballooned since the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak forced millions of employees to work from home for an indefinite period.
Business Email Compromise attacks have increased dramatically in the past two years and are resurging exponentially during the crisis due in part to the lack of home internet security and scrutiny from tech staff at home.
GlobeX said it is working with several resellers in South Asia, South East Asia, and the Asia Pacific region, in order to start sales in the second quarter of 2020. Some of the projects the company said it is working on are large multi-million dollar and multi-year projects spearheaded by financial institutions and governments.
The company has signed distribution agreements covering Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, the Maldives, India, Bangladesh, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands of Fiji.
The targeted industries are businesses in the financial services, legal services, healthcare, manufacturing, energy, large conglomerates, telecom operators and government entities.
In the US, GlobeX has launched a new business solutions package to help secure the growing work-from-home population. In conjunction with its US reseller Guard Street Partners LLC, it introduced a remote workforce cybersecurity secure business solutions package that will include DigitalSafe, which includes heightened email security, network vulnerability alerts, access to cyber incident response specialists and a cyber liability insurance policy.
It has also launched its work from home package in the Bahamas and began a broad sales campaign in North America.

What the boss says:
In an interview with Proactive about the Globex’s newly launched sales campaign, CEO Alain Ghiai commented: “We have some Canadian resellers already and are in discussions with resellers in New York, but with the launch of our sales campaign we’re looking to expand nationwide. The advantage is that this will really cement our North American sales in the years to come.”
