Ed Kidson: "..a major opportunity."

authentication is experiencing strong growth

Woking, Surrey: 2/9/14 - VAD Wick Hill has become a certified training centre for the SafeNet Authentication Service (SAS). The first three-day course at Wick Hill’s Woking HQ will run on Monday, September 29th, 2014. The course is part of SafeNet’s new partner program, designed to ensure certified resellers are rewarded for their commitment to the product.

Aimed primarily at resellers, but also available for their customers, the course will cover all aspects of implementation, provisioning and troubleshooting of both the cloud-based and the on-premises version of the SAS product. There is a certification exam, with a SafeNet certification qualification.

The course will be repeated once a quarter. It’s also available on-site and can be white-labelled by VARs to sell on to their customers, with bespoke tailoring available.

Ed Kidson, product sales manager for SafeNet at Wick Hill, commented: “Thanks to Snowden, and a range of highly visible security breaches, authentication is experiencing strong growth. This provides a major opportunity for our SafeNet resellers to get accreditation and deliver a wider range of professional services with their sales.”


INFORMATION FOR EDITORS

SafeNet Authentication Service
An SaaS (software-as-a service) based authentication platform, this solution comes in four types: a cloud-based service for enterprises, a cloud service for service providers, an onsite solution for enterprises, and an onsite solution for service providers. It has been designed to make two-factor authentication easy to implement and manage. It provides the overall lowest total cost of ownership of any authentication solution.

Features include a comprehensive degree of automation to drastically reduce the cost of management, tokens that do not expire, and a comprehensive self-service portal that allows users to carry out many functions that would traditionally only have been resolved by the help desk.
