8MAN Launches UK Partner Programme

Protected Networks, the Berlin-based supplier of access rights management solution 8MAN, has today announced the UK launch of its 8MAN Plus Partner Program to support its expanding reseller partner community and to bring its software solution for access rights management and data security control to all types of UK organisation. The launch of the Program comes following the appointment of experienced industry leader Keith Maskell as Country Manager, UK.

Building on extensive customer requirements for the 8MAN product suite since its launch into the UK market, the 8MAN Plus Partner Program now demonstrates Protected Networks’ full commitment to develop and support the UK market by 100% commitment to its reseller channel. The accredited membership program features three tiers – Gold, Silver and Bronze – which are tailored to the reseller’s individual goals and are linked to attainable margins and other benefits.

The 8MAN Plus Partner Program will also allow for flexible software licensing models, with the inclusion of managed services options, and a share of ongoing renewal and maintenance business alongside valuable consulting opportunities. Partners will gain access to a central web portal for a consolidated view of leads, a knowledge bank of supporting literature and materials, training programs and access to marketing campaigns.

The UK launch of the 8MAN Plus Partner Program is being spearheaded by Keith Maskell, who has been appointed Country Manager, UK. Keith has more than two decades of experience in developing and managing channel partner programs alongside driving international sales and business development for global organisations. His previous positions have included Country Manager roles for Check Point Software Technologies and Trend Micro, as well as Vice President, Corporate Business at Kaspersky Lab, Business Division Director for Xerox and Country Managing Director and General Manager roles for Canon.

Speaking on the launch of the 8MAN Plus Partner Program, Keith Maskell said: “I am inspired by the vision of the 8MAN product, which really goes to the heart of the data protection problem by making data access privileges manageable. The launch of the new UK partner program is a critical step in Protected Networks’ global growth strategy and I am excited that the company has made a clear and long-term decision to distribute this important product to the UK market with 100 per cent commitment to its partner channel.”

“Our focus is to develop and support the UK market with the 8MAN product suite and convince partners and customers alike of the solutions’ potential. We are delighted to be taking this important step together with Keith Maskell, who is an experienced and highly respected expert in the IT security industry and we are happy to be able to offer prospects and partners an additional precious added value by introducing the 8MAN Plus Partner Program,” explains Matthias Schulte-Huxel, CSO of Protected Networks.
