UK and Ireland distributor DataSolutions has announced that its security division revenue grew by €7.5m in 2020.
Growth was driven by increased demand for IT security solutions and new vendor partnerships, the company announced.
New vendors added to its portfolio include Neustar, D3 Security, ColorTokens, Ordr and Orca Security. Its existing cybersecurity portfolio includes CheckPoint and HPE Aruba, and the new additions will allow DataSolutions to expand on its cybersecurity offerings — for example, working with Ordr will enable DataSolutions to offer IoT device security.
“Our dedication to delivering specialist technical expertise and transformational technologies in areas including security has driven the growth and success of the business,” said DataSolutions managing director Michael O’Hara (pictured). “Last year was no different. In fact, we focused on these pillars even more in order to support our partner and customer base through these challenging times.”
The Dublin and Surrey-based distributor hopes to grow further in the UK and Irish markets this year. The company has also been running customer initiatives aiming to educate the market and drive awareness of new cybersecurity concepts and technologies.
“With the increase in sophisticated cyberattacks targeted at dispersed workforce, security teams are under serious pressure to protect vulnerable organisations and critical data,” O’Hara added. “That’s not to mention the fact that they are potentially dealing with unprotected networks, personal devices and unofficial app downloads.
“Industry-leading vendors and cutting-edge solutions are crucial for businesses to safeguard their operations, people and information.”
