Censornet expands relationship with Infinigate to the UK
Duo to work together in the UK, following success in the Benelux and DACH regions
Censornet has today announced it has signed Infinigate as its distributor of choice in the UK. The two companies already work together in the Benelux and DACH regions, and this agreement will expand that successful relationship. The partnership sees Censornet move to a two-tier channel model in the UK, to match its approach to the rest of EMEA, with one of Europe’s most prominent value-added security distributors.
Infinigate is recognised across EMEA for distributing innovative and reliable security solutions to resellers and the expansion of the agreement to the UK will allow Censornet to accelerate growth and provide operational scalability. Critically, it will also provide Censornet resellers with support through the adoption lifecycle thanks to Infinigate’s high-quality value-add service.
The distributor currently offers Censornet’s Unified Security Service (USS), as well as its individual solution components of email, web, cloud application security (CASB) and multi-factor authentication (MFA), to organisations in the Benelux and DACH. Censornet will work with Infinigate to further its reach and offer resellers and customers a local distributor in the UK as part of its growth strategy.
Ed Macnair, CEO, CensorNet, said: “Demand for Censornet’s products is rapidly increasing, as more and more organisations realise the need for robust security solutions. As online threats have become increasingly prevalent, businesses are seeing how imperative it is to not only protect their infrastructure, but also to move away from running separate solutions in silos.
“Our relationship with Infinigate has been hugely successful in the Benelux and DACH and expanding that to the UK makes complete sense. Infinigate is incredibly proactive and has a track record of supporting vendors to build and grow their presence in different markets. The channel, and specifically resellers, are critical to our ambitious growth plans and Infinigate’s expertise in security, and especially in web and email security, will help us better support our resellers and customers on our home turf. We’re delighted to be expanding our relationship and look forward to realising success together.”
Murray Pearce, Managing Director, Infinigate UK added, “Censornet fits perfectly with our desire to bring innovative solutions to our partners, its Unified Security Service platform is very well positioned as customers increasingly adopt cloud security services. They are a truly partner-friendly company and we are delighted to expand our successful European partnership into the UK.”
