    960 640 Stuart O'Brien

    Verkada and Distology have entered a strategic partnership to drive adoption of the former’s hybrid cloud video security and access control systems within the UK and Ireland via channel partners.

    Since launching in the UK, Verkada says it has seen traction with customers across industries, including Bath Spa University, GAIL’s Bakery and Border Biscuits.

    The company, which recently ran a series of cloud security webinars, has extended its global infrastructure to the UK, including a dedicated HQ and logistics hub in London, as well as a regional AWS data centre in Ireland. With Distology, Verkada adds a distribution network to reach new growth opportunities with leading resellers.

    Built on industry-leading computer vision and edge-based technology, Verkada cameras analyze events in real-time to provide users with actionable insights to simplify and speed up investigations. 

    Verkada joins a list of existing Distology vendor partners, including security leaders such as Okta and Yubico.

    “As we sell exclusively through channel partners, they are the foundation of our success,” said Edoardo Cannarsa, Head of EMEA Channel Sales at Verkada. “As we expand globally, partnerships with leading distributors like Distology will allow us to more effectively support our existing UK and Ireland reseller network. At the same time, we’re accelerating new VAR enthusiasm and enrollment while ensuring our customers receive the quality and best-in-class experience we strive to deliver.”

    Stephen Rowlands, Sales Director for Distology, said: “Whilst there is a constant emphasis on the importance of IT security, physical security has too become a critical need for organisations, and we’re proud to be offering Verkada as our solution.

    “Companies have a responsibility to keep their employees, customers and property safe, and if you’re one of the many businesses with multiple locations to manage, a solution that can be managed remotely is key for centralizing the responsibility of physical security management within an organization.

    “Verkada offers a true security-focused product unlike any other, and I have no doubt we’ll see extremely high adoption rates of this product across the UK&I over the coming months.”
