Celestix partners with Softcat to deliver HOTPin two-factor authentication solution for Managed Service Provider

Fremont, California – 18th Sep 2012 – Celestix, a global leader in simplifying complex IT security solutions today announced an exciting new partnership with Softcat to deliver their innovative two-factor authentication solution designed exclusively for managed service providers. The current industry offerings for two-factor authentication solutions are typically restricted to be on-premise or cloud-based.

Celestix HOTPin MSP Edition allows managed service providers (MSPs) to offer a managed two-factor authentication solution to their customers by hosting the HOTPin platform themselves. The product is uniquely tailored to reduce the challenges faced by managed service providers. HOTPin solves the challenges of upfront investment, scalability, licensing complexity and centralized administration and reporting.

“Softcat’s exceptional track record in supporting the continued growth of the managed service market is unparalleled in the UK” says Tim Ager, Chief Executive Officer of Celestix. “We are very excited about this partnership which we feel will deliver a profitable incremental service to the UK MSP community”.

Until now companies outsourcing their IT services to an MSP have had limited options for deploying two-factor authentication. This partnership provides a simple solution to the challenges of deploying and managing two-factor authentication as part of an outsourced IT estate.

“We are excited about the growth potential provided by HOTPin as the demand for security services within the MSP market continues to grow” says Damian Wakefield, Partner Services Manager at Softcat. “Two-factor authentication enables our MSP partners to deliver a greater range of enhanced services to their customers while ensuring they remain secure against identity theft and the potential resulting data breaches”.
