30 Sep Yubico announces expansion of partnership with Infinigate into the UK
2020 has been a challenging year and the need to protect the workforce from phishing attacks and credential theft has never been stronger. With remote work on the rise, and strict compliance guidelines being implemented, organisations are required to rapidly adapt best of breed security technologies, including modern authentication standards in order to secure sensitive data. Following the goal of making security available for everyone, Yubico has taken many expansion steps to bring strong authentication to all organisations around the world.
Across EMEA & APAC, Yubico has quickly realised that customers would benefit greatly from the value-add of channel partners. Those partners bring expertise on all levels and facilitate local procurement, logistics, add their technical expertise, and help customers reach their business goals with Yubico’s technology.
After years of successful collaboration in many European countries, Yubicio is now expanding it’s partnership with Infinigate, the CRN UK Security Distributor of the Year 2019, into the UK market.
“Yubico is an exciting vendor for us, the technology is truly market-leading and they are pioneers in the security key space”, said Justin Griffiths, Managing Director at Infinigate UK. “Enabling our partners to provide their customers with cutting-edge security is Infinigate UK’s primary focus and Yubico powers us to deliver broader solutions and even stronger security. Their technology ecosystem also integrates with some of our existing vendors, such as CyberArk, Entrust, idaptive and HID, as well as key technology providers including Google, Microsoft and AWS.”
Based on Yubico’s successful partnership in other markets across EMEA, Infinigate has been the obvious choice to help Yubico realise it’s ambitious growth plans for 2021 and beyond. Infinigate brings a wealth of expertise in the cybersecurity space and will be a great addition to Yubico’s channel landscape in the UK&I.
