Credence to offer ensure suite of ESET security products, including two-factor authentication, encryption, and endpoint protection
Regional distributor of specialised solutions in cybersecurity, forensics, governance, risk and compliance, Credence Security has partnered with ESET for southern Africa. Credence Security’s portfolio will be significantly enhanced by ESET’s solutions, particularly its encryption and endpoint-protection products.
The two companies will collaborate on marketing campaigns and events, with Credence Security offering the entire suite of ESET security products, including two-factor authentication, endpoint protection and endpoint encryption.
As the partnership launches, ESET will conduct sales and pre-sales workshops, and provide training and certification to Credence Security’s designated engineers.
Steve Flynn, sales and marketing director, ESET Southern Africa, said: “The cybersecurity landscape has become increasingly afflicted with advanced persistent threats and zero-day exploits, and enterprises of all scales and industry need to understand — as they continue on their digital-transformation trajectories — that sophisticated infrastructure must be integral to the operation of any modern business. ESET has been recognised as a global leader in Endpoint Protection Platforms by Gartner and Radicati. Through our partnership with Credence Security, we can bring the power and simplicity of our protection capabilities to African enterprises.”
Credence Security will meanwhile engage with existing partners and onboard new ones to drive sales of ESET solutions, targeting enterprise customers, small and medium businesses (SMBs) and government organisations. Credence Security will also take responsibility for their partner training and will support partners with proof-of-concept (POC) and demonstrations.
Garreth Scott, managing director, Credence Security, said: “ESET has spent three decades perfecting industry endpoint and mobile security solutions, leveraging the latest encryption standards and two-factor authentication. ESET’s high-performing, easy-to-use products give consumers and businesses the peace of mind they need to take an agile approach to their technology stack."
