Tech Data Mobile has signed a new distribution agreement with security specialist Lookout.
The distributor will take advantage of Lookout’s portfolio of security software and products, which it explained could predict mobile attacks and stop them. This includes iOS and Android apps that specifically protect mobile devices.
Tech Data explained that the range would complement their existing mobile range, enabling resellers to add another revenue stream.
The issue of security came to a head in 2015, when the industry was rocked by high profile cyber attacks at Vodafone, TalkTalk and Carphone Warehouse.
Stephen Nolan, senior vice president at Tech Data Mobile, said that these types of sophisticated breaches have made security more important than ever before.
He said: ‘The issue of protecting ourselves from the threat of cyber attacks- whether as individuals or in the enterprise - has never been more relevant, as viruses and malware become ever more sophisticated and numerous.
‘We are really looking forward to building Lookout’s trusted and powerful protection into the integrated mobility solutions that we offer to our partners in the channel across Europe.’
