Distributor Altimate has bolstered its security and compliance portfolio by partnering with Celestix.
The distributor, formerly Codework, will supply Celestix’s full portfolio of two-factor authentication technology, firewall platforms and its growing suite of identity and access management technology, as it looks to become a key pan-European security distribution player.
Its role will be to grow Celestix’s presence in the region and identify new routes to market.
Troy Theobald, security business development manager at Altimate Group, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Altimate in the continually growing ‘ready-to-deploy security solutions’ space; especially in light of increased demands from the market for more secure authentication and identity control and access management solutions.
“Celestix enables Altimate to provide high-quality security products and value-added services to its partner base. I have no doubt this new relationship will provide an excellent opportunity for our channel partners and their customers to enjoy the award-winning value that Celestix products can bring to them."
Neil Foxley, European channel manager at Celestix, added: “Following a period of sustained growth we are pleased to be partnering with Altimate as it represents an opportunity to grow and diversify our channel activity. It has a strong background with enterprise-class security technology, and we look forward to the opportunities for growth this partnership will bring.”
