CronLab has signed a distribution agreement for Germany, Austria and Switzerland with value added distributor Virtual Network Consult (VNC).

CronLab, a Swedish provider of email and web security technology headquartered in the UK, said that it is partnering with VNC to expand its portfolio of customer related solutions to a wide network of resellers and corporate partners.

Daniel Axsäter, CEO of CronLab, told SC Magazine that the company was keen to drive its web filtering into the region, as this was a key area for it to move into.

He said: “By entering the German, Austrian and Swiss markets, CronLab expands its reach to a large region of Europe whose customers are well known for their IT security awareness. We are excited to provide our solutions through VNC, who have such a deep local expertise and extensive network.”

Andrea Wörrlein, CEO of VNC, said: “The German speaking market has some of the world's strictest IT security regulations, and customers hence demand cost-effective solutions that enable them to adhere to those standards. We are therefore delighted to have added CronLab to our growing portfolio of innovative security technologies. Our partners and customers shall now benefit from a simple email and web security solution that empowers them to manage security without increasing costs.”
