Verkada announces partnership with Distology

Cloud-based security outfit Verkada  has teamed up with Distology today announced a strategic partnership to drive adoption of Verkada’s hybrid cloud video security and access control systems within the UK and Ireland via Verkada channel partners.

Since launching in the UK, Verkada claims to have got some “tremendous traction” with customers across industries, including Bath Spa University, GAIL’s Bakery, and Border Biscuits. Verkada has extended its global infrastructure to the UK, including a dedicated HQ and logistics hub located centrally located in London, as well as a regional AWS data centre in Ireland. With Distology, Verkada adds a leading distribution network to reach new growth opportunities with leading resellers.

Verkada Head of EMEA Channel Sales Edoardo Cannarsa,  said: “As we expand globally, partnerships with leading distributors like Distology will allow us to more effectively support our existing UK and Ireland reseller network. At the same time, we’re accelerating new VAR enthusiasm and enrollment while ensuring our customers receive the quality and best-in-class experience we strive to deliver.”

Verkada joins a list of existing Distology vendor partners, including security leaders such as Okta and Yubico. By adding Verkada, Distology continues to build its list of security vendors.

Stephen Rowlands, Sales Director for Distology said: “Whilst there is a constant emphasis on the importance of IT security, physical security has too become a critical need for organisations, and we’re proud to be offering Verkada as our solution. Companies have a responsibility to keep their employees, customers and property safe, and if you’re one of the many businesses with multiple locations to manage, a solution that can be managed remotely is key for centralizing the responsibility of physical security management within an organization.”

The Verkada Partner Programme lets resellers, installers, and integrators to grow their businesses with Verkada’s intelligent, cloud-based video security and access control technology. Verkada implemented a two-tier distribution strategy to support new international customers and partners through the Verkada Partner Program. Resellers who join Verkada’s Partner Program are able to work with Distology throughout the UK & Ireland.
