Identity as a Service - Infinigate Expands its MSP Portfolio with Entrust
Security VAD Infinigate further expands its Managed Security solution portfolio by deepening its cooperation with Entrust, a leading provider in the field of trusted identities and data protection. The security vendor's MSP-enabled identity and access management solution is now available through many of the value-added distributor's (VAD) European offices through its Acmeo MSP subsidiary. In addition to centralised billing, Infinigate offers a broad range of sales and technical support.
The security VAD has good reasons for this portfolio expansion. "The demand in the area of authentication and identity management is currently increasing massively", explains Sascha Odenthal, Head of MSSP Business at Infinigate Germany. "We notice this in discussions with our partners and see it in the results of current studies. Not least because of DSGVO and increased home offices, up to 70% of MSSPs consider this topic to be the most important challenge. I am therefore very pleased that we now have the strong IDaaS solution from Entrust in our MSP portfolio. Our partners can easily expand their security services with a central, cloud-based platform - and secure end customers with adaptive multi-factor authentication and single sign-on, for example. Infinigate's managed security team supports the set-up and sales of the service, and central billing is integrated into the Infinigate MSP portal."
"The almost pan-European expansion of our partnership with Entrust is a real win", added Patric Berger, Vice President Sales MSP & Major Accounts at Infinigate Holding. "Together with our partners, we can now even better meet the high demands of the MSP market in the area of authentication and digital identity protection. This supports our strategy to build a high-quality managed security solution offering in all regions, which we enrich with targeted MSP services for our partners."
"Working with Infinigate, we can further expand our presence in Europe and provide our customers with advanced security solutions they can fully rely on at all times", said Kieran Hernon, Regional Vice President, Digital Identity Sales EMEA at Entrust. "By expanding our partnership, we combine Infinigate's regional expertise and extensive industry experience with Entrust's leading products and services - ensuring end customers receive the best possible solution for them."
