Worms – 16 April 2015. KOBIL Systems, German provider of a mobile security-platform, intensifies its product & package business. In this context, the identity and security-management specialist fully relies on indirect sales and has entered into a partnership agreement with one of Germany’s largest distributors, ALSO Deutschland GmbH.

The cooperation aims at providing ALSO partners, which include computer retailers, system integrators and resellers, with clearly focused security products that address specific customer-requirements, are quickly implemented and yet at the same time extendable to facilitate more sophisticated customer activities in the future.

KOBIL will be present on ALSO’s proprietary trade show Channel Trends+Visions 2015, taking place on April 17 in the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum and demonstrate the first shared exclusive package: protection for corporate date facilitated by 2-factor authentication through KOBIL’s SecOVID. The one-time password system is “security made in Germany”. It provides solid authentication to secure corporate data from non-authorized third party-access. Employees who need to access corporate data from externally can be clearly identified by the technology made by KOBIL and will be authenticated by a one-time password.

The package comprises a license for the Smart Security Management Server (SSMS), 10 hardware security tokens or 10 software security tokens, 10 user licenses, including 1 year of maintenance, and participation in the remote-training for this technology. It is perfect for resellers who intend e.g. to protect the access to their clients’ infrastructures (e.g. Citrix, Cisco, Juniper, F5, Microsoft).

But KOBIL’s SSMS facilitates so much more than “just” reliable authentication. It enables computer retailers to develop more sophisticated and individualized solutions based on it, which again means achieving added value for customers.

“We look forward to working with ALSO. This cooperation enables us to effectively provide the market with a solid authentication technology made in Germany“, says Adnan Garip, KOBIL Systems’ Sales Manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. „On the one hand, increasingly more companies request solutions that preclude loopholes for foreign governments, on the other hand our technology is state-of-the-art in terms of expectations towards security“.

“Being a distributor, we aim at enlarging our security portfolio. Considering this, KOBIL is our perfect partner in sectors like mobile identity management, authentication or generally securing corporate data. The products are made in Germany, are at an outstanding level in terms of security and reliability, and provide the ease-of-use expected by today’s end customers“, Mike Rakowski, Head of BU Technology for ALSO Deutschland GmbH, happily explains.
