Tech Data announces European distribution agreement with Worldsensing for Smart City Solution
2017-08-22

Broadliner Tech Data has unveiled a European distribution agreement with Worldsensing, a recognised specialist in wireless technology and smart software solutions. Through the agreement, Tech Data will offer FastPrk, an Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart parking management system through its Smart IoT Solutions business practice, which offers validated, end-to-end solutions for systems integrators and service providers, enabling them to identify and drive new revenue opportunities. FastPrk is an intelligent parking management system that allows cities and operators to manage parking resources more efficiently and parking operators to generate additional revenue. The wireless system uses smart sensors installed in parking spaces, enabling parking operators to direct drivers to areas with vacancies via electronic panels and mobile applications. Fastprk also enables cities and operators to gain control over parking utilization, while implementing better strategies on monetization of parking in line with demand.

"As our cities continue to grow rapidly, there is an increasing need to invest in smart technology to become more efficient, better connected and more environmentally friendly. For example, helping drivers find parking spots quickly reduces traffic and lowers carbon dioxide emissions with less fuel wasted", said Victor Paradell, vice president, Tech Data Smart IoT & Analytics, EMEA. "Our agreement with a global IoT pioneer in smart cities and wireless infrastructure sensor networks like Worldsensing adds a game-changing component to our portfolio, allowing our partners provide connected operational intelligence solutions to their clients."

Azlan announces new distribution agreement with Secret Double Octopus
2017-07-31

Azlan, Tech Data Europe's infrastructure VAD division, has unveiled a pan-EMEA distribution agreement with Secret Double Octopus, a pioneer of keyless multi-shield authentication technology. Secret Double Octopus has developed a solution for the market that applies keyless authentication and identity protection for cloud, mobile, and IoT solutions. Secret Double Octopus' app helps companies to scale their network security and shift away from key-based authenticators, to a more secure keyless solution. With one tap, the authenticator app initiates a multi-shield authentication process for users in order to verify or reject the login attempt, payment or transaction.

David Harvey, director Security and Enterprise Networking Solutions at Azlan, says: "by bringing Secret Double Octopus into our vendor portfolio, Azlan enriches its security offering with an innovative solution that addresses customers' authentication challenges, is scalable and easy to deploy, and helps provide cost-effective security."

"For years, organizations have sought to educate employees about the importance of secure passwords and resisting phishing attacks, both of which have failed. It is time to replace the password", said Raz Rafaeli, CEO of Secret Double Octopus. "We are excited to expand our global footprint through this partnership with Azlan. We can offer the European market a strong authentication solution that will eliminate the need for passwords - a security vulnerability that accounts for two-thirds of data breaches."

Double Octopus products are available in the region through Azlan offices in Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
