FOXBORO, Mass. -- Utimaco, The Data Security Company, today announced continued traction for its channel program in North America and Latin America. With nearly 100 partners and distributors certified to deploy Utimaco SafeGuard products, Utimaco continues to gain new customers. SafeGuard Enterprise, Utimacos flagship product platform, is attracting new partners and creating demand from partners looking to gain certification in order to provide enhanced security solutions.
Through the Channel Program, Utimaco partners with select distributors, value added resellers, system integrators and hardware vendors to leverage mutual resources resulting in solution oriented sales that would be unattainable without the contributions of each company. The Channel Program provides resellers a single source for Utimaco products, technical support, consulting, marketing and sales assistance. Certified resellers provide application and implementation expertise and customer support.
Recent momentum for the Utimaco Americas Channel Program includes work with South Seas Corporation located in Colorado, a SafeGuard Enterprise certified partner and leading provider of security solutions. As a result of the partnership, Utimaco and South Seas Corporation have been engaged by the State of Colorado to help with their encryption solutions training, customization and support for departments and agencies throughout the state.
Paul Herbka, vice president of South Seas Corporation said, I like the flexibility and completeness of the Utimaco suite of products. SafeGuard Enterprise has given the enhanced look, feel and control that Utimaco customers were looking to get. In fact, one customer recently said that deploying SafeGuard Enterprise was one of the best decisions they had made. South Seas Corporation has developed customized trainings that allow customers to leverage our experience as well as our practical and real-world scenarios.
South Seas Corporation is continuing to meet the security needs of state agencies, schools and commercial accounts in Colorado and throughout the United States. We are excited about the partnership and support that Utimaco provides, Herbka continued.
