LONDON, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - PKWARE, a global leader in data security, today announces a partnership with Kite Distribution, a leader in technology distribution and channel services. This value-added partnership will serve to extend the scale and reach of PKWARE's enterprise data encryption solutions throughout the UK.
"This partnership is an important step in continuing our expansion in the UK, particularly leading up to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect," said PKWARE CEO, Miller Newton. "As businesses prepare for the GDPR, encryption and data security must become increasingly front of mind for UK companies. We're delighted to see this agreement come to the fore, with Kite Distribution being partners in helping us maximise reseller interest during this critical time."
Under this distribution agreement, Kite Distribution is authorised to arm resellers with the sales and marketing support required to sell PKWARE's software.
"This partnership highlights Kite's commitment to bringing innovative technologies to the attention of the UK channel," said Kip Tumber of Kite Distribution. "The cybersecurity narrative used to be all about securing your perimeter, but that approach has proven to be very inadequate as more enterprises have embraced cloud and mobility and in the process redefined what a perimeter is. This has driven security managers to seek out new strategies which are not as sensitive to perimeter breaches - these include encrypting the organisations data and restricting who can access it. PKWARE is at the forefront of this sector and we are excited to be partnering with them."
PKWARE has been a trusted leader in global business data protection and encryption for 30 years. PKWARE's solutions keep data safe from internal and external cybersecurity threats for more than 30,000 enterprise customers, including 200 government entities. Its software-defined solutions provide cost-effective and easy-to-implement protection that is transparent to end users and simple for IT to administer and control.
