Patrice Benloulou, Senior Executive Business Development at MCA Technology
French broadliner MCA Technology has inked a strategic distribution agreement for the French market with Giesecke+Devrient (G+D), a global security technology group providing security technologies in the fields of payment, connectivity, identity and digital infrastructure.
Through this strategic partnership, MCA Technology continues to develop its value division and expands its product portfolio in the field of IT security and secure authentication solutions.
Through this new partnership, G+D's main objective is to use MCA Technology's extensive network of resellers and integrators to recruit new partners in France for its portfolio of enterprise security authentication solutions and to develop its regional presence by creating a network of certified partners. MCA Technology thus becomes the G+D value-added distributor in charge of creating its partner network.
For Patrice Benloulou, Senior Executive Business Development at MCA Technology in charge of the development of the value division, said: "this referencing fits harmoniously into our product portfolio around cybersecurity, data protection and data management, thus offering our resellers the possibility to find innovative and complementary solutions to the traditional offers available within our product portfolio."
Philippe Ortodoro, Sales Director for Southern Europe and Head of Enterprise Security at G+D France, added: "we are delighted with this new partnership as it will allow us to create our first network of certified partners for our enterprise security authentication solutions in France. MCA Technology brings us its expertise and long experience as a reseller targeting SMEs and large accounts to increase our footprint in these markets."
To support this partnership, MCA Technology has trained its existing sales team and will have its pre-sales resources certified on G+D offerings. Specialised sales people are also expected to join its teams in the near future to support the development of this valuable division.
