VASCO Data Security Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI; www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products today announced that is has signed a distribution agreement with Tekdata.
Tekdata Distribution is one of the UK's most experienced and most innovative IT distributors, specializing in Internet Security, Storage, Peripherals and access control products. Tekdata is Europe's largest SonicWALL distributor with a dedicated sales team. Under the terms of the agreement, Tekdata will distribute VASCO DIGIPASS® authentication solutions as an add-on to SonicWALL solutions. In doing so, Tekdata supports VASCO's partnership program, in which VASCO collaborates with other solution vendors.
VASCO joins forces with other solution vendors to insure seamless integration and compatibility with their solutions. VASCO's DIGIPASS authentication solutions address the use of insecure static passwords for the authentication of users requiring remote access to corporate networks and applications via SonicWALL SSL-VPN. By integrating DIGIPASS strong authentication with SonicWALL SSL-VPN solutions, the customer receives an easy-to-deploy remote access solution with increased security.
"VASCO is a leading authentication vendor. We think that the VASCO offering nicely complements our existing portfolio. We are able to bundle VASCO authentication with our SonicWALL offering, this provides us with new market opportunities. VASCO authentication is offered as an extra security layer to SonicWALL implementations. By jointly offering both solutions we are able to deliver additional value to our reseller network and the end-customer.", says Mark Gibson, Tekdata UK and Ireland Marketing Manager.
"The use of authentication for remote access to corporate networks and applications improves data security. VASCO uses its longstanding expertise together with other market leaders to offer secure solutions. Furthermore, we rely on our distributors and resellers to promote our solutions with other vendors. ", says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security.
