DataSolutions signs UK and Ireland distribution agreement with ColorTokens as cybersecurity division continues to grow

DataSolutions, the specialised distributor of innovative IT and security solutions, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with ColorTokens for the UK and Ireland. The announcement comes as DataSolutions expands its operations and looks to bolster its roster of resellers. In addition, DataSolutions also announces the launch of its Fast Track Security Partner Acquisition Program, which will ensure resellers are equipped with the technical knowledge and understanding of new vendors in rapid time.

Success based on the core principles of education, support and growth has seen DataSolutions record 30% year-on-year growth for the past four years in the UK. The agreement with ColorTokens underscores its intentions to continue this trajectory and expand the security division of the business.

For DataSolutions partner resellers, the agreement with ColorTokens represents an excellent opportunity to offer a solution which targets critical concerns facing businesses as they adapt to enforced new ways of working. ColorTokens targets the 80% of network traffic flowing between systems within the enterprise perimeter, providing visibility into what is normal and what could be malicious activity. ColorTokens Xtended ZeroTrust Platform delivers the deep visibility organisations require and allows them to adopt granular micro-segmentation to protect virtualised and cloud hosted workloads and complements the perimeter security solutions already in place.

DataSolutions also announced the launch of its Fast Track Security Partner Acquisition Program. Aimed at fast tracking resellers knowledge, this will involve a series of webinars and virtual training events. DataSolutions will be launching ColorTokens to its UK partner base on May 28th with a virtual webinar launch that will feature Tony Scott, a former Federal CIO of the United States and Walt Disney Company CIO, currently serving as ColorTokens’ board member.

“We’re proud to be working with DataSolutions to build our partner base in the UK and Ireland,” says Lee Ealey-Newman, ColorTokens’ Vice President, Channel EMEA & APAC. “As DataSolutions enters 30 years of specialising in innovative IT technology, we look forward to leveraging their long-established experience to deliver a new generation of proactive security solutions across these regions.”

Michael O’Hara, Managing Director, DataSolutions, said: “ColorTokens is a great addition to our growing line-up of technology partners. The cybersecurity part of our business continues to grow, and our intention is to further establish this division over the next 12-months. For our existing resellers and those who may join our new initiative, forensic level security insight provides a great opportunity to provide business with a unique and compelling proposition. In addition, the ZeroTrust market is growing at 20% per annum and predicted to hit nearly $40billion by 2024, so there is a significant revenue opportunity for partners.”

Award-winning DataSolutions offers partner resellers focused on the opportunities to supply end user businesses with the best in IT Security, Networking, Intelligent Workspace and Hybrid Multi-Cloud solutions. DataSolutions’ portfolio of vendors and its commitment to customer service has seen the company significantly expand its customer base through referrals – highlighting its unique ability to offer what other, often bigger, distributors don’t: a specialist service which is both professional and personal.
