Demand for Data Security Drives Early Channel Acceleration

Secerno, the technology leader in data security, today announced a partnership with independent distributor, Sphinx, to be its sole UK distributor.

Based in Nottingham, Sphinx specialises in providing value added services amongst some of the most well respected blue-chip security, voice and networking companies, such as Juniper Networks and Alcatel-Lucent. Secerno selected Sphinx based on its history of taking innovative products to market and its long-term credentials within the database and security market.

Secerno’s intelligent learning database security technology, Secerno.SQL, operates next to an organisation’s assets, enabling companies to understand the true intentions of database interactions from both internal and external sources. Secerno.SQL audits and protect against known and unknown threats to data or deviation from security policy.

“We have been experiencing unprecedented demand from our customers to make our technology available ahead of schedule. Organisations are realising the importance of protecting their information assets at board level, so partnering with Sphinx to accelerate our strategy is the right move. Now is an exciting time, and I have every confidence that our decision to work with Sphinx will bear fruit even quicker than we all expect,” commented Steve Hurn, CEO, Secerno.

Mark Hatton, Managing Director, Sphinx said, “We’re very excited to be working with Secerno, and recognise the importance of this relationship to the security market and our reseller partners. Security is now an inside-out consideration, and with Secerno’s SQL technology, pioneering a new type of security proposition, we believe we can offer real value to our customers with security dilemmas.”

This channel announcement is the latest demonstration of Secerno’s rapid growth; following hot on the heels of Juniper Network’s VP of Worldwide Field Operations, Eddie Minshull, joining Secerno as non-executive Chairman.
