The Tech Data security practice team will provide specialist business development and technical support to WALLIX partners and also provide full enablement for new partners.
Alison Nixon, director, security, UK and Ireland at Tech Data, said: "WALLIX is a valuable addition to the Tech Data cybersecurity portfolio. Identity and access management is a rapidly growing segment of the cybersecurity market, and this partnership enables both existing and new WALLIX partners to grasp that opportunity.
