ZIVVER announces new UK channel partners, delivering ‘triple safe’ outbound email and file transfer security to end-user organisations, to stop costly human error data leaks
LONDON and AMSTERDAM – 13 November 2019 – ZIVVER, a Dutch-founded data protection platform, today announced it has signed value-added resellers RnD Systems Integration and C-STEM, as well as value-added distributor Progress Technology Services, to deliver its unique outbound email security solution to the UK market – with scope to add more VARs before the end of the year.
Having gained 2,700 customer organisations in the last two years – including 40% of Dutch hospitals and 30% of Dutch local government – ZIVVER is bringing its proven technology to the UK via a channel-first approach, helping government and enterprises to prevent data leaks due to human error; improve compliance (including GDPR) and save costs from ineffective communication via fax, snail mail and courier. Its unrivalled, three-in-one solution does so by securing outgoing emails and file transfers throughout the whole communications process, i.e. before, during and after sending.
“Our route to market in the UK is primarily through the channel,” said Darren Parker, EMEA Channel Manager at ZIVVER. “We’ve adopted this approach as VARs including RnD and C-STEM fully understand their customers’ specific data protection needs and challenges – now and in the future – and customers trust them to deliver the security technology they really need and are able to implement without disruption to the running of their business.”
“By also partnering with cyber security-focused distributor Progress, this solid channel structure gives us the support, expertise and scalability we require to grow quickly in the UK,” Parker added. “Furthermore, in recognition of ZIVVER’s widespread potential, we are looking to sign several additional VARs by the end of this year – partners with the appropriate integration skills and specialisations across public and private sector end-user organisations.”
