The deal marks the second distribution partnership that DES has embarked upon to help drive sales of its DESlock+ product. The vendor also works with Surrey-based VAD C-MI Labs.
The DESlock+ offering is designed to protect data stored on removable storage devices through the use of document and disk encryption.
David Tomlinson, managing director of DES, said: “We want to make sure that every UK business can easily source DESlock+ and joining forces with Sigma is a fantastic way of showcasing what we offer.”
Juliet Collis, managing director of Sigma, said the distributor is seeing a growing demand for data encryption devices.
She said: “[We are] seeing considerable demand for computer security devices as all organisations, both in the public and private sectors, become increasingly aware of their obligations in protecting data.”
