Encrypted Mobile Solutions Distributor Already Securing Key Enterprise Wins in Europe, the Middle East and Africa
HANNOVER, Germany, CEBIT 2017, HALL 14, STAND J52, BOOTH 38 and HERTFORDSHIRE, United Kingdom, March 20, 2017 – Kerveros, a distributor of encrypted mobile solutions, today announced a partnership with Silent Circle, a pioneer in enterprise-class mobile security, privacy and compliance solutions. The two companies are currently delivering security solutions, based on Silent Circle’s secure mobile communications suite, to enterprise organizations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The announcement was made in conjunction with CeBIT 2017 taking place this week in Hannover, Germany where Kerveros will be exhibiting in Hall 14, Stand J52, Booth 38.
Kerveros was founded with the sole mission to deliver the very best and most secure hardware- and software-based mobile solutions to enterprises and dealers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. With a growing network of distribution hubs and dedicated experts, the organization has earned the reputation as a partner of choice in EMEA.
According to a recent global survey by Accenture, “more than half (54 percent) of consumers surveyed said they plan to buy a smartphone in the next year.” Notably, the overwhelming majority of those end users will use their devices for both corporate and personal use. In fact, ABI Research states that, “business communications on smartphones represents 95 percent of work done over those devices, more than any other type of work performed.” Despite this trend, the firm cautions that “business communication security is often overlooked in favor of securing email servers, databases, networks and systems.”
“It’s no secret that enterprise cybersecurity requires a multilayered approach. But, an organization is only as secure as its weakest link. Unfortunately, more often than not, mobile is the most underprotected layer,” said Kerveros Managing Director and Owner Kc Cico. “That’s why we’re singularly focused on mobile communications security, and teaming with the recognized leader Silent Circle. We’re pleased to have earned their trust and confidence, and look forward to collaborating with them to deliver secure, scalable hardware- and software-based solutions to organizations throughout EMEA.”
“Partners are the lifeblood of any successful sales organization,” said Silent Circle Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Bob VanKirk. “Kerveros embodies the spirit and focus of our worldwide channel program. Working together, we’re already establishing tremendous momentum with significant enterprise deals. We welcome further shared success as we help EMEA-based organizations ensure the privacy and security of their mobile communications.”
