Westcoast Limited, the UK’s leading distributor of IT products and services for the channel market, has partnered with Authlogics, a world leading provider of End-to-End Authentication solutions. The deal, which further strengthens Westcoast’s Cyber Security offering, will allow organisations to move away from password-based login mechanisms to a simplified passwordless world.
Westcoast’s collaboration with Authlogics reinforces the organisation’s commitment to Cyber Security and the ongoing threat that organisations are facing. With Authlogics, Westcoast customers will now have access to solutions that solve the issues of password security compliance with Active Directory auditing and a service that accesses the publicly available but personal information, illegally obtained from over 10,000 data breaches and containing over 12 billion indexed stolen credentials, including, for example, names, email addresses, usernames, phone numbers, and passwords for online accounts.
Automated password resets, reduced helpdesk costs and enhanced multi-factor authentication solutions are key to improving security, while not becoming a victim to the ever-growing database of breaches.
Paul Harman, Technology Solutions Director at Westcoast said “At a time when Cyber Security is critical to business success, Westcoast is delighted to partner with Authlogics to bring new capability and value to our partners. We bring together Westcoast’s reputation for supporting the channel with a great commercial and technical offering from Authlogics to really drive a new line of business for our partners in this exciting space. “
Commenting on the deal, Steven Hope, CEO at Authlogics said “With there being a dramatic increase in phishing attacks, credential stuffing and data breaches, it has become imperative that companies secure their IT infrastructures and ensure password policies are secure and comply to the highest practice standards. That is why we have brought Westcoast on board to distribute our passwordless authentication solutions to the UK and European markets. Being well established, Westcoast hold a strong IT reputation and we have confidence that they will deliver. They have already proved their value with their dynamic business approach and we are excited to reach out to more enterprises through Westcoast to provide compliance and migration towards a passwordless login user experience.”
