Cloud-delivered zero-trust security editor ColorTokens has signed a distribution agreement with DataSolutions, the specialised distributor of innovative IT and security solutions for Ireland and the United Kingdom. The announcement comes as DataSolutions expands its operations and looks to bolster its roster of resellers. In addition, DataSolutions also announces the launch of its Fast Track Security Partner Acquisition Program, which will ensure resellers are equipped with the technical knowledge and understanding of new vendors in rapid time.

The core principles of education, support, and growth have fueled DataSolutions’ record 30% year-over-year growth for the past four years in the UK. The agreement with ColorTokens underscores its intentions to continue this trajectory and expand the security division of the business.

For DataSolutions partner resellers, the agreement with ColorTokens represents an excellent opportunity to offer a solution which targets critical concerns facing businesses as they adapt to enforced new ways of working. ColorTokens targets the 80% of network traffic flowing between systems within the enterprise perimeter, providing visibility into what is normal and what could be malicious activity. The ColorTokens Xtended ZeroTrust Platform delivers the deep visibility organisations require and allows them to adopt granular micro-segmentation to protect virtualised and cloud-hosted workloads and complements the perimeter security solutions already in place.

DataSolutions also announced the launch of its Fast Track Security Partner Acquisition Program. Aimed at fast tracking resellers’ knowledge, this will involve a series of webinars and virtual training events. DataSolutions has launched ColorTokens to its UK partner base on May 28th with a virtual webinar launch that featured Tony Scott, a former Federal CIO of the United States and Walt Disney Company CIO, currently serving as ColorTokens’ board member.

We’re proud to be working with DataSolutions to build our partner base in the UK and Ireland”, says Lee Ealey-Newman, ColorTokens’ Vice President, Channel EMEA & APAC. “As DataSolutions enters 30 years of specialising in innovative IT technology, we look forward to leveraging their long-established experience to deliver a new generation of proactive security solutions across these regions.

Michael O’Hara, Managing Director, DataSolutions, said: “ColorTokens is a great addition to our growing lineup of technology partners. The cybersecurity part of our business continues to grow, and our intention is to further establish this division over the next 12 months. For our existing resellers and those who may join our new initiative, forensic level security insight provides a great opportunity to provide businesses with a unique and compelling proposition. In addition, the ZeroTrust market is growing at 20% per annum and predicted to hit nearly €33.8 billion by 2024, so there is a significant revenue opportunity for partners.
