Cohort Technology has announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Centrify Corporation for the sales and support of their market-leading Mac and Mobile solutions that improve security and manageability of Mac systems, iPads, iPhones and Android devices through integration with Microsoft Active Directory. With offices in Bracknell, Centrify Corporation is the leading provider of security and compliance solutions that centrally control, secure and audit access to cross-platform systems, mobile devices and applications.
This new agreement will see Cohort sell, market and support Centrify’s DirectControl for Mac and DirectControl for Mobile solutions in the UK and Ireland. Whilst Centrify works with value added distributors across most of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, this appointment sees a move to two-tier distribution in the UK for the first time.
Commenting on the appointment, Grahame Smee, Managing Director, Cohort Technology added, “We are very pleased with our new relationship with Centrify. Their products offer our partners an incremental opportunity to better serve end user customers who rely on Apple products in their organisation. The ability to manage and secure Mac systems via Windows Group Policy is a key differentiator, as is centralised management of all Mac and mobile devices. We’ll be adding a great deal of value to the existing Centrify channel through business development, training and our unique channel service offerings.”
Darren Gross, EMEA Director, Centrify added, “Centrify is enjoying rapid growth in demand from customers that want to improve both the security and manageability of their non-Microsoft platforms, including Mac workstations and Apple iOS devices and Android mobile devices as the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon continues to grow. As a result, we’ve taken the decision to appoint Cohort Technology as our value added distributor in the UK to assist us in growing our market share through their specialist service offerings and technical expertise. Cohort will assist us in serving both our valued partners and in turn their end customers, both commercially, technically and via leveraging their wealth of experience in this area.”
