Leading enterprise Unified Access Security provider selects Ignition as first UK Sole VAD partner
LONDON – November, 1st, 2018 – The latest addition to Ignition Technology’s cybersecurity portfolio is Duo Security, the leading provider of enterprise Unified Access Security (UAS) and multi-factor authentication (MFA). Announced today, this sole distribution agreement with Ignition is Duo’s first with a UK-based value added distributor (VAD), and targets accelerated growth among managed service providers (MSPs) and security specialists.
“This collaboration provides great opportunities for the channel and compliments our strong, existing portfolio of software-as-a-service (SaaS) cyber solutions,” said Sean Remnant, Chief Strategy Officer at Ignition Technology. “Endpoint and identity are the largest growth areas in security today as the widespread adoption of mobile access and cloud-based applications undermine the traditional foundations of security policy. There are few constants that organisations can rely upon, but identity is one of them. With Duo, SailPoint and Bitglass, we have one of the strongest identity-based foundations for today’s digital business transformation.”
Duo provides a frictionless MFA solution which only requires one tap on a smartphone to ensure users are who they say they are. For customers looking to secure their growing mobile workforce, Duo’s premier product offering, Duo Beyond, enables organisations to exercise greater control over access to information on their systems by ensuring that only trusted users and devices can access protected applications.
Duo’s EMEA channel business has grown 600 percent in the past year through a commitment to strong partnerships with MSPs and security solution providers. The company’s efforts with Ignition are tailored to serve strategic security partners, offering consultancy and advisory services through deployment and ongoing services. With a particular focus on mid-market and enterprise, this collaboration will provide increased support to more partners to implement the full spectrum of Duo Beyond product features.
“With the exponential growth we’re seeing in EMEA, we seized the opportunity to engage with a distributor to accelerate our position in the market,” said Mike East, Vice President of EMEA at Duo. “Ignition Technology’s progressive approach to IT security, including their vendor and partner relationships and sales, as well as marketing and technical support makes them the perfect partner for Duo. Together, both companies can accelerate the adoption of innovative multi-factor authentication, zero trust and bring your own device (BYOD) solutions to the partner community.”
