Cryptzone signs agreement with German distributor MTRIX

August 6, 2013

Cryptzone, the IT security and threat mitigation specialist, today confirmed that it has signed a distribution agreement with MTRIX, a boutique IT security distributor in Germany, to sell and support its encryption and secure access solutions.

The partnership is in line with Cryptzone's European channel strategy to steadily grow its channel presence in Europe and further expand its list of prestigious European corporate customers.

Located in Lüneburg, close to Hamburg, MTRIX has an excellent reputation within the German market, working closely with top computing and network specialists, such as T-Systems (a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom) and others. The company focuses on a carefully selected portfolio of niche IT security solutions. Mr Malte Kahrs, Chief Executive at MTRIX, is confident about this strategic decision to incorporate Cryptzone solutions into the MTRIX offering: "Extending our IT security portfolio will enable us to offer our existing resellers a more complete solution, as well as attract new partners from the flourishing MicrosoftTM SharePointTM ecosystem."

He recognizes that Cryptzone's Simple Encryption Platform (SEP) is unique in providing encryption to protect content stored in MicrosoftTM SharePointTM, when emailed between co-workers or external parties or copied onto local drives, portable media or cloud-based storage. With mounting concerns over the protection of sensitive personal and commercial information, such a solution is extremely compelling for the CIOs he meets. Regulatory compliance, BYOD and mobile security have now risen to the top of many corporate IT agendas. Cryptzone's AppGate role-based access control solution delivers just the security and flexibility required to enable organizations to respond to the challenges associated with this fast-evolving phenomenon.

Yves Delongie, Vice President Europe at Cryptzone, concurs: "We are delighted that MTRIX has decided to partner with Cryptzone. The company has a solid track record in delivering growth for its vendors and partners and we see the company as strategic to our expansion plans for Germany. I look forward to exciting times ahead."
