In order to support this opportunity, ViaSat has appointed Paul Thackeray as Sales Director. Paul brings over 15 years’ experience in the technology industry to the role, including setting up a UK branch and EMEA-wide partner programme for Barracuda Networks from scratch.
“Organisations want to keep and share information quickly, reliably and securely,” said Paul Thackeray. “For such a simple need there is an increasingly crowded market: integrators and resellers must find more and more ways to differentiate the quality of their offerings. ViaSat has a long pedigree of manufacturing and providing bespoke and off-the-shelf communications and security technology to organisations with the toughest demands possible. Sharing this proven pedigree with commercial as well as government organisations will provide rich opportunities for the channel.”
ViaSat provides both bespoke and off-the-shelf encryption and satellite communications technology for Government, military and commercial users. Its products are accredited to the highest levels of security and reliability, with its encrypted hard drives certified to carry commercial or government data at any level of sensitivity. ViaSat also runs its own accredited, secure manufacturing facilities allowing it to both create bespoke technology for individual partners’ needs and to train partners so that they can continue mass production on their own if needed. Services ViaSat can provide include:
- Proven Cybersecurity and Information Assurance: ViaSat UK’s range of encrypted hard drives has already been proven and accredited at top-secret levels of security. ViaSat can also manufacture bespoke technology that can marry this level of encryption to any storage.
