StarLink, the region’s trusted security-specialised “True” Value-Added-Distributor (VAD), has today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Centrify, the leader in securing enterprise identities against cyber threats. As the fastest growing IT Security distributor in Africa with on-the-ground presence across the continent, StarLink will sell Centrify products and solutions through its network of channel partners to enterprise and government customers across Africa.

“StarLink is a leading VAD in the region, and it has earned the respect of customers and partners alike, with its Trusted Advisor approach, and services delivery expertise,” said Kamel Heus, Regional Sales Manager MEA and Indian SC at Centrify. “Partnering with StarLink is an important milestone for us to exponentially expand the coverage and penetration of our best-of-breed single sign-on, multi-factor authentication, mobile and Mac management, privileged access security and session monitoring technology into companies of all sizes in the growing African market.”

Jacques Slabber, Business Development, South Africa at StarLink commented: “Compliance-focused solutions and privileged user monitoring technology have always been fundamental to StarLink’s success in other regions. Therefore, with Centrify, we believe we can achieve tremendous success due to the rapid emergence of many key African countries, wherein either significant regulation is already in place, or new compliance is being introduced as organisations in Africa look to achieve global standards.”
