Previous to Nuvias’ acquisition of Wick Hill, VASCO had an ongoing 10 year distributor relationship in the UK and Germany with Wick Hill. Both Nuvias and VASCO are now looking to replicate this successful partnership across EMEA, with an initial focus on France, Poland and Benelux.
“Increasing reports of stolen passwords along with the arrival of GDPR and a growing need for cloud and wi-fi authentication are all major factors in driving the market for solutions that combat online and mobile fraud,” said Nuvias Group’s EVP Cyber Security, Ian Kilpatrick. “VASCO’s range of digital trust solutions are already delivering growth for us and our partners in many regions and we are really excited by this expansion of our longstanding relationship.”
“Partnerships with organizations like Nuvias enable VASCO to maximize its channel business opportunities,” said VASCO’s Channel Sales Manager EMEA, David De Pauw. “Nuvias’ knowledge of VASCO’s products and its presence in more than 20 countries across EMEA will help further VASCO’s success and offer value to a broader-reaching end user base.”
Kilpatrick added: “Our mission is to deliver a common proposition, consistently delivered and we will be working closely with our resellers to meet regional market requirements and provide local support. While some countries are more advanced than others when it comes to the deployment of security technologies, we are able to draw on a decade of experience in the UK and Germany to help deliver the best solutions and support to drive adoption across EMEA. We are looking forward to expanding our relationship with VASCO, a company that is investing heavily in R&D to develop exciting new products and building strong go-to-market propositions.”
