Distology are delighted to welcome the brilliant Squareball team to our family.

Based in Berlin, Germany, Squareball extends our base of operations further into Europe and the team are already off to a flying start working with two core vendors, Okta and Auth0.

Squareball augment our existing expertise with their recognised excellence in software engineering, product design, solution architecture and identity access management solutions (IAM & CIAM).

The highly skilled Squareball team offer proven methodologies, which ensure the customer is placed front and centre. We are targeting a broader and more diverse pool of partners across Europe by building a channel-focused distribution sales team in Berlin as well as supporting Squareball in achieving their long-term vision in product and identity engineering on a broader scale.

Through the product development services which Squareball offers we’ll be able to continue our disruptive march in the market, developing software products which bring greater excellence to identity consulting and vice versa.

“When we started our acquisition journey, we were recommended Squareball by one of our vendors and as soon as I met with Martyn, CEO and founder, his passion for the business was clear. The acquisition is a big step for both businesses and I truly believe this collaboration will enable us to provide additional high-quality services for our partners and their customers across Europe. It’ll also help us to expand our reach and support even more organisations to protect their digital estates from the growing threat of cyber-attacks through a deep understanding of product engineering, while educating organisations on the part identity and access management plays at the core of zero trust architecture.
We’re really excited to see the impact the amalgamation of skills and expertise has across both teams and what that will bring to our business, our vendors and our channel partners. We look forward to welcoming the Squareball team into the Distology family.” Hayley Roberts, Distology CEO.

Established five years ago, Squareball started as a consultancy which brought together UX and engineering to offer organisations dedicated teams who design, build and launch digital products.

“Since starting Squareball in 2017, we’ve been able to establish our position in the market as experts in software engineering with emphasis on identity and access management. Now is the perfect time for us to join forces with Distology, a reputable channel-focused cybersecurity specialist and distributor who has an extensive, yet hand-picked roster of partners, to double down on delivery and grow. We’re excited to be able to join a well-known, passionate and highly skilled team to grow our business and broaden visibility, and also amplify the skills we have here in Berlin.” Martyn Roberts, CEO and founder of Squareball.

We’ve set out to be Europe’s leading value-added-distributor, and over the last 12 months have made huge strides in the right direction to really cement ourselves as a true value partner to both new and established vendors. Expanding into the DACH region has always been part of the business strategy, so both teams are incredibly excited to see these plans come to life!
