shaking hands

Code42 has announced a distribution deal with IT distributor Ingram Micro, expanding the data loss protection firm's market reach in the UK and US.

The agreement focuses on furthering relationships with security and IT channel partners committed to providing world-class data security products, as well as those involved in the laptop supply chain, Code42 says.

The deal means Ingram Micro will market and sell Code42's Next-Gen Data Loss Protection through resellers in the UK and US, which includes a host of the firm’s products, such as the Code42 Forensic File Search, File Exfiltration Detection, Legal Hold and Backup + Restore.

Ingram Micro said it plans to use Code42's portfolio in order to transform the supply chain and enable hardware partners to provide a frictionless approach to large-scale tech refreshes, including Windows 10 upgrades.

“We look forward to selling Code42’s solution as part of our security portfolio,” said Eric Kohl, executive director of Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro US. “Our relationship with Code42 opens up new opportunities for our channel partner community at a time when cybersecurity threats are on the rise, and already overloaded security and IT teams are looking for ways to shrink incident response times.”

Currently, the Code42 app is running on more than two million endpoints and supports more than 50,000 organisations around the world.

“Code42 is focused on providing companies with next-generation data loss protection and recovery capabilities,” said Jason Greenwood, vice president of security solutions at Code42. “The faster organisations can move to improve their data security posture, the faster they can reduce business risk and productivity loss.

“Code42 is partnering with Ingram Micro and its network of 200,000 solution providers to help make that happen.”
