Connector Systems secures SecurEnvoy distribution

31 Mar 2015

Connector Systems has signed a deal to be the exclusive distributor for SecurEnvoy’s range of two-factor authentication products in New Zealand and Australia.

The distribution partnership will see Connector Systems bringing SecurEnvoy’s two factor authentication product portfolio to market here.

Andrew Grace, SecurEnvoy regional channel manager ANZ says the deal will enable the vendor, known as the original inventor of token-less authentication, to boost its reach across ANZ.

“Having already had success in the government, retail and manufacturing verticals, a focused VAD that operated with VARs was exactly what we were looking for to expand on this success,” Grace says.

“Connector Systems can bring our secure range of 2FA solutions to new partners and markets,” he adds.

Mark Dasent, Connector Systems ANZ general manager, says the distributor’s priority is to provide new and unique opportunities for local resellers.

Andrew Craze, Connector System’s Australia country manager, recently told ChannelLife AU that he sees SecurEnvoy as ‘the future of two-factor authentication’.

“Their goal is to continue to design innovative solutions that take advantage of the users’ mobile phones or other personal devices as the ‘something you own’ part of two-factor authentication and resolve issues that have prevented their adoption such as SMS delays, no phone signal or soft token synchronisation problems.”

SecurEnvoy’s authentication makes use of existing devices such as smartphones. Users enter a numeric passcode, received by SMS or email, in addition to a user name and password.

A numeric code can also be generated as a QR code, using a soft token app, with a photograph of the QR code using OneSwipe technology used to prove identity.

SecurEnvoy will sit alongside CyberArk, DellSonicWall and Sophos in the value-add distributor’s security portfolio.
