Seclore appoints Redington Gulf FZE to develop its ME presence and impact
Seclore Technologies, a leading provider of Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) solutions, has announced it has appointed Redington Gulf FZE, a large distributor of IT products in the Middle East and Africa region, as a Value Added Distributor for the region. Seclore is committing additional investment to expanding and developing its presence and impact in the Middle East, following the opening of a new regional office in Dubai in April 2017.
Seclore is expanding its GCC presence and operations in response to increasing demand for its award-winning solutions. Amit Malhotra, VP Sales India Middle East and Africa, Seclore, said: “We are already active in the GCC with a particular focus on the UAE, where our GCC regional office provides technical expertise and support closer to our customers. Data losses are at an all-time high and information-centric security is gaining momentum, highlighted by the recent global ransomware attacks, so our timing is very appropriate as data security is pushed to the top of the corporate agenda”.
A recent survey from ESG, Securing Information in the Age of External Collaboration, concludes that more than one in four companies believe it’s very likely that sensitive data has been stolen by third party vendors. A total of 98 per cent of respondents cited the loss of sensitive data as a top or significant concern. Commonly stated reasons for data loss include emails sent to the wrong person (67 per cent), unauthorised access (64 per cent) and lost portable storage devices (61 per cent). Seclore helps organisations secure their sensitive data regardless of how or where it travels. Protection remains with the files when open or stored on mobile devices and laptops, and if they are shared via any file-sharing service or email solution. File owners can also dynamically modify usage controls or revoke access on previously distributed files.
Confirming the appointment, Ramkumar Balakrishnan, President – Redington Value, commented: “Cybersecurity is at an inflection point in Middle East. Redington is well positioned to deliver Seclore’s solutions to customers and ensure that all the requirements of the channel are met under one roof, supported by our in-house pre-sales expertise, regular sales, and technical training and programmes.”
“This new agreement with Redington will help extend our reach and impact across the region, with almost 1,600 partners across the Middle East and Africa, and a range of enterprise customers,” added Rohit Oberoi, Director of Channel Sales in India, Middle East and Africa for Seclore.
