Lockdown has accelerated the launch of new cybersecurity reseller TrueCyber, founder Tom Happé has told CRN.
Happé has worked for a number of security vendors - including the likes of Kaspersky, Forcepoint and TrustWave - but left his last role at ZoneFox in May to launch TrueCyber this month.
The firm has not yet revealed its vendor portfolio, but Happé said the line-up will feature a handful of core vendors, plus some "more start up-type vendors to focus on innovative technologies".
Happé said that COVID-19 and lockdown has "accelerated everything".
"It's making me take the plunge to go and do it, so it's increased the activity and the building out of the business." he explained.
"I think if you can set up a business in a global pandemic, things will be good moving forward!"
