Bluechip Infotech has inked an Australian distribution deal with identity and data security vendor Entrust for its enterprise and identity and public key infrastructure solutions.
A major focus of the agreement is on the vendor’s Entrust Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, according to Bluechip.
This includes its Entrust Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) offering, a cloud based solution that allows for the deployment of multi-factor authentication with single sign-on and passwordless access.
The deal will also focus on Entrust’s Identity Enterprise and Identity Essentials offerings.
Bluechip will offer the vendor's IDaaS solution to enterprise customers as a run-rate solution, while integrators will have a managed service provider option.
Ron Jarvis, Bluechip’s sales director, claimed that Entrust’s IAM solutions can be used in multi-factor authentication-related use cases and "will enable our customers to easily adopt and embrace an identity-first security approach”.
Claus Hansen, vice president of enterprise solutions for Asia Pacific and Japan at Entrust, added that the agreement was “the beginning of a mutually beneficial collaboration”.
“We are well-positioned to support Bluechip’s efforts in offering their partners a digital edge through truly innovative, modern solutions, and we look forward to deepening our relationship with a wide range of savvy and engaged integrators via Bluechip Infotech’s network,” he said.
