01 Sep Infinigate announces new partnership with Hornetsecurity
Hornetsecurity, the leading German email cloud security provider in Europe has signed an agreement with Infinigate UK, the CRN UK Security Distributor of the Year 2019.
As one of the fastest growing German tech companies, Hornetsecurity makes with this new partnership another important step to become market leader in UK and Ireland. The ambitious plan is to achieve this within the next 12 months.
Hornetsecurity Services complement Infinigate’s extensive cyber security product portfolio and MSP offering (Managed Services Provider) in all the key areas of email security, including spam and virus filters, legally compliant archiving and encryption with best in class technologies. This includes advanced threat protection for users of Microsoft 365 as well as other email systems.
Daniel Blank, COO of Hornetsecurity, said that Infinigate fits perfectly as a new distributor due to its award-winning expertise and strong focus on cybersecurity solutions: “Since our inception we work in an indirect sales model with trusted and capable VAR´s (Value Added Resellers) and MSP´s in our core markets. Our focus on the UK market was initiated with the acquisition of our former exclusive country partner Everycloud in December 2019. Within the last six months we built an entire UK team including partner managers as well as an UK support department.
With these resources and a clear commitment, we carefully looked for a suitable partner who has the same understanding and ideas to execute our 100 percent channel focused strategy and to attract new partners with our solution. We have two new MSP modules on our roadmap for 2020. Infinigate’s relationships and experience with more than 2,000 security and network resellers is so beneficial to us. It helps us to entirely understand the desires of the UK MSP´s and what they miss in competitors’ solutions. Our goal – to become the leading email cloud security provider for MSP´s in UK within one year – is closer with this new partnership. We look forward to a fruitful cooperation and to meet Infinigate partners in person at the first Hornetsecurity Partner dialogue in UK which is planned for the first quarter of 2021.”
Infinigate on the other hand further expands its MSD (Managed Services Distributor) offering with Hornetsecurity’s products.
“We’re really excited to partner with Hornetsecurity as we continue to develop our vendor portfolio and invest in our MSP offering.“ Said Justin Griffiths, Managing Director for Infinigate UK. “Hornet’s email security and threat protection offerings fit perfectly onto our portfolio and will also be made available on the Infinigate MSP platform. We were really impressed by Hornetsecurity’s roadmap and their vision aligns closely with ours. Infinigate already works with Hornetsecurity in Europe and we are excited to replicate that success in the UK & Ireland.”
