Authlogics Appoints Portland Europe as its Distributor in Benelux
UK Authentication Specialists Begins Major 2017 Global Expansion Plans
BRACKNELL, UK, 16th January 2017 – Authlogics has today announced that it has appointed Portland Europe at its distributor for Benelux. The UK-based authentication company’s innovative solutions are already deployed by organisations in the UK, South Africa and the US and now Authlogics is expanding in to mainland Europe, with one of the largest distributors in the Netherlands.
The Netherlands is in many respects the beating heart of the European IT security with initiatives such as The Hague Security Delta (HSD), which is the largest security cluster in Europe. As such it represents the ideal springboard for Authlogics to develop and grow its install base and market share throughout Europe.
Head of Marketing at Portland Europe, Roel Seegers states: “When we first saw PINgrid in action, many of us wondered why something so ‘simple’ and logical hadn’t been done before. Security isn’t about complexity, it’s simply about how well one keeps a secret. In this case, keeping a pattern in your head.”
Seegers adds: “The engineers at Authlogics understand this very well and created an incredibly smart bundle of solutions for our MSPs to secure both cloud and on-premise access points. For Portland Europe, distributing a diverse portfolio of services for the MSP, this type of authentication is a perfect match.”
CEO of Authlogics, Steven Hope adds: “We have been very impressed by the proactive approach Portland Europe has already taken to establish the Authlogics brand in the region. Their close working relationship with many MSPs, resellers and us as the vendor, means that they provide an exceptional level of value-add for the end user. They are certainly one of the most forward thinking and best of the breed distributors and Authlogics is delighted to be growing its business with them.”
Founded in 2005, Authlogics is an award-winning specialist in multi-factor authentication. With offices in the UK and South Africa, the independent software vendor services a global client-base across 27 countries including government departments, multi-national financial, petro-chemical, telecoms and media institutions with an end-user base extending into the millions. The company is also a bespoke solution supplier to the NHS in the UK.
The company is a pioneer in developing and deploying innovative authentication solutions, introducing the ground-breaking concept of one-and-a-half factor sign-on, as well as taking advantage of the latest smartphone technology to replace costly hard-tokens with highly secure and reliable soft-tokens.
The Authlogics product suite consists of PINgrid, PINphrase and PINpass which deliver strong and affordable two-factor, one-and-a-half factor, soft-token and token-less, one-time code, authentication capabilities for heightened security. It provides the IT department with ease of administration without the associated costs of purchasing and managing a traditional hard-token based system. The company is a member of the FIDO Alliance, as well as a contributing member of OATH.
In a rapidly changing IT landscape, companies depend more and more on ICT. They need a trusted advisor that knows their company well and has insights into its processes and ambitions. Portland is one hundred percent loyal to the reseller channel and will never serve the end customer directly. Portland strives to be the best distributor in its domain. We are specialized in the SME market and only distribute new, innovative software solutions. All of our activities are focused on boosting our clients’ businesses. Portland continuously searches the globe for scalable software solutions from ambitious developers, which are often better and always more cost efficient than traditional solutions.
