Ingram Micro has expanded the availability of Cirius on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace to channel partners in New Zealand, building off the distributor’s long-standing relationship with Microsoft.
Joining flagship vendor Microsoft Office 365, Cirius is a communications and email encryption solution that enables businesses to securely share messages, information, and workflows across any device.
“We are thrilled to add Cirius to the Cloud Marketplace and provide our channel partners with an innovative solution that supports efficient business collaboration while safeguarding against a variety of data security threats,” says Gary Bigwood, Managing Director, Ingram Micro New Zealand.
“Channel partners can now quickly access Cirius and seamlessly integrate it with Office 365 and other solutions on the Cloud Marketplace for a value-added offering that boosts profitability and customer stickiness.”
Bigwood says in today’s evolving security threat landscape, secure messaging is vital for the protection of sensitive business data and critical workloads.
To safeguard against the internal and external threats facing confidential business data and sensitive customer information, Bigwood believes that many Kiwi organisations are turning to cloud-based communication environments to effectively protect, control, and manage their corporate messaging.
In relation to Microsoft specifically, Cirius removes the complexity from security that is often found in traditional email encryption tools and offers seamless integration into existing email infrastructures, such as Office 365.
By bundling Office 365 with Cirius, Bigwood says channel partners can provide customers a “unique offering” that enables users to send and receive encrypted email and large file attachments with real-time tracking and enhanced security.
