New Thales distributors for Africa

Issue 1 2021 News, Cyber Security

Cyber Security Africa Distribution (CSAD) and Cyber Security South Africa (CSSA) have been appointed as distributors of Thales access management and data protection solutions across the African continent. CSAD and CSSA are sister companies dedicated to the distribution of high-end digital security products/solutions. CSSA focuses on South Africa and CSAD covers the rest of the African continent.

CSAD and CSSA are well-placed to grow the Thales brand in Africa. With a well-established network of resellers in Africa, coupled with a focused and experienced support team and systems, CSAD and CSSA will use their capacity and capabilities in a drive to offer Thales technology to African entities.

Says Martin Britz, CEO of CSAD: “Our appointment as a Thales distributor enriches our product portfolio and allows us to offer our resellers a comprehensive solution which will accelerate Africa’s adoption of cloud and digital transformation more securely.”

Toni Bowker, MD of CSSA, says that the partnership is based on a number of factors that include a commonality in the desire to reduce client risk as well as a desire to increase cybersecurity technology accessibility throughout the continent.

Neil Cosser, Thales country manager for Africa, says: “With the high demand from sub-Saharan African markets for data protection and access management solutions, we needed to enhance the support and investment from our distributors to accelerate our current growth whilst continuing our work to educate businesses on how best to protect what matters most: their data. Working together, we’re confident that we will maximise opportunities to help organisations achieve their data protection objectives in line with the changing requirements.”
