Authentication and identity assurance vendor ActivIdentity has crowned Sysec as its first UK-based implementation partner.
The badge is designed to reflect a reseller's ability to undertake professional services engagements that adhere to the ActivIdentity's "gold standard and methodology".
Sysec's accreditation applies specifically to the VAR's expertise with ActivIdentity 4TRESS authentication appliance and ActivID card management system.
Sysec chief executive Cris Pykes said ActivIdentity has become his firm's vendor of choice in both the authentication and enterprise single sign-on market.
"We are developing our business with ActivIdentity as we are not seeing any margin erosion with them and it is heavily services-oriented," he said. "The project engagements are usually 6-12 months."
Pykes said the vendor's recent acquisition by HID Global opens up opportunities for its partners to target the physical security space.
Hilding Arrehed, director of worldwide professional services for ActivIdentity, said: "The ActivIdentity Implementation Partner Program ensures that customers have access to ActivIdentity partners globally that have a strong track record for delivering complex and multi-layer authentication and credential management solutions.
"We are delighted to recognise Sysec's commitment to excellence in the design and delivery of ActivIdentity identity assurance and authentication solutions for a number of public and commercial sector customers."
