GrIDsure and Vigil Software sign exclusive distribution agreement Wednesday 6 July 2011 PDF Print Specialist security distributor to expand channel and boost sales for GrIDsure London ─ Jul 6th 2011 - Vigil Software, the specialist IT Security Distributor, has been appointed by GrIDsure, the leading provider of Pattern Based Authentication solutions, as the exclusive distributor for GrIDsure in the UK. Vigil has signed a distribution agreement for the next three years and will focus on recruiting new partners to enable GrIDsure to meet its ambitious growth targets. Vigil will also provide support and training to existing GrIDsure resellers. GrIDsure operates a pure channel sales strategy and Vigil will play a key role in building its presence in the UK market. Over the past five years GrIDsure has developed a solid track record with its unique tokenless solution, which offers a secure and reliable means of authentication and protecting access to the network. Vigil is working with GrIDsure as its only authentication provider, as these next-generation authentication technologies will further enhance the distributor’s portfolio of security solutions. Alex Teh, Director of Vigil Software comments: “We’re delighted to have signed this agreement and are looking forward to working closely with GrIDsure. We partner proactively with vendors to provide a hands-on approach to support their own sales and marketing initiatives. This, combined with our strong credentials in the security market, means we are well placed to boost their channel partner engagement. We believe that GrIDsure is the type of second generation disruptive technology that will make a significant impact in the UK market. Currently many organisations are evaluating their 2-factor authentication strategy as hard tokens are costly and difficult to manage. They are also vulnerable to security flaws as the recent RSA breach has shown.” Daniel Mothersdale, CEO of GrIDsure comments: “Working with Vigil is a major step for us in accelerating our growth in the UK by building an effective and knowledgeable channel. Vigil’s way of operating closely with channel partners, end users and vendors and their specialist technical and sales competency in the security market is like a breath of fresh air. We’re looking forward to great success through working closely with them and tapping into their excellent channel contacts and knowledge.” About Vigil Software Vigil Software is a privately owned UK company, established in 2001 and based in London, which supplies Information Security Solutions to UK resellers and customers.
