Distology, Leading IT Security Distributor, Partners with US-Based Aware

9th April 2019

Distology today announces a new partnership with Aware, a leader in governance, compliance and intelligence known for helping enterprises safely accelerate the adoption of collaboration tools like Workplace by Facebook, Microsoft Teams and Yammer.

Distology are market enablers, complementing technology innovation with service innovation, working with some of the most disruptive vendors in the cloud and security space. Signing Aware forms a key component in our overall cloud and collaboration strategy and complements our existing portfolio, particularly with the Workplace by Facebook integration.

With this partnership, resellers can enable their clients to unblock and unleash their existing investments in collaboration systems. “With tools like Workplace enabling a huge amount of powerful communication and crucial information sharing, it can lead to challenges such as lack of visibility, adoption and the need to manage risk more proactively. That is where Aware comes in,” states Hayley Roberts, CEO at Distology.

The intelligent platform is built specifically for the unstructured conversation data that lives within enterprise collaboration technology. Aware complements and enhances native security services by monitoring and protecting shared content that could pose a human behaviour risk to the organisation; it also offers the ability to leverage easily-configurable rules to enforce new and existing organisation policies.

“We are thrilled to join forces with an outstanding and respected partner in Distology. This partnership helps us better reach the UK enterprise market, and together we can transform the way organisations use and gain value from their investments in Workplace by Facebook,” said Aware CEO and Co-founder, Jeff Schumann.

The partnership will provide reseller partners with a compelling proposition to customers or prospects facing challenges around their existing communication tools or looking to remove organisational red tape and satisfy HR, IT and Legal team requirements when looking at new platforms. To further support this, Distology will provide dedicated vendor quality technical and commercial resource to streamline the enablement process, while helping promote and organise lead generation activities.
