Bracknell, UK: 18 March 2013 - Accumuli, a specialist in IT security, announced today its appointment as strategic UK reseller for Venafi, the inventor of and global market leader in Enterprise Key and Certificate Management (EKCM) solutions.
Every business and government relies on cryptographic keys and certificates to provide and ensure trust. These technologies are behind what makes society function today - from card payments, online shopping, to smartphones and cloud computing. To safeguard corporate data, Venafi solutions enable enterprises to efficiently manage the ever-growing number of encryption keys and certificates.
Built specifically for encryption management interoperability and independence across heterogeneous environments, Venafi provides out-of-the-box management capabilities for the widest range of digital certificate and encryption key technologies, including symmetric keys, SSH keys, asymmetric keys and digital certificates - from the data centre to the cloud and on mobile devices. Venafi has selected Accumuli as a key partner for its entire suite of products, support and services, to strengthen its presence in the UK market.
Under the terms of the deal Accumuli can resell Venafi solutions globally, although the focus will be on accounts in the UK and EMEA regions. Accumuli will use its expertise in direct sales to sell Venafi’s extensive range of products to both existing and new customers. Venafi’s solutions will be integrated into Accumuli’s current product portfolio to enable the company to present enhanced security capabilities to core networking services.
“Accumuli was selected as a strategic partner in the UK because of its strength in and focus on leading edge products, and its proven experience securing the infrastructures of top 100 UK customers, including very large enterprises and service providers, said Trell Rohovit, VP of Corporate Development and Strategic Accounts. “The company is also adept at integrating vendor solutions with a rich blend of professional services, technical support and managed services.”
“We are delighted to be a key partner in the UK for Venafi. Enterprise Key and Certificate Management is vital for UK businesses,” said Gavin Lyons, CEO of Accumuli. “Often there is no enterprise-wide understanding of who manages encryption assets, and this can expose companies to potentially damaging and expensive risks, including security breaches. With our deep understanding of this market segment and extensive customer relationships, we can position Venafi at the heart of our customers’ on-premises or managed-service encryption solutions.”
