Innominate Security Technologies AG targets American market with new distribution partner
Embedded security vendor, Innominate signs deal with Industrial Networking Solutions
Addison/Berlin 6 August 2007 - Innominate Security Technologies AG is set to increase its presence in the North American industrial security market after signing a distribution agreement with the US-based Industrial Networking Solutions (INS). INS, a value added distributor with special focus on industrial Ethernet solutions, will distribute Innominate's range of industrial security products throughout the US.
"This represents a fantastic opportunity for us to broaden our presence in the strategically important American industrial security market", said Joachim Fietz, CEO of industrial security specialist Innominate. "INS has an excellent track record of pushing key products to industrial companies in North America. The company is seen as a pioneer of the Industrial Ethernet marketplace and we look forward to working with them to the success of both our respective companies."
Innominate will use INS to distribute its mGuard range of products including its newly developed mGuard Industrial RS. The products are designed to specifically protect production lines from hackers, viruses and even accidental misuse – an increasing threat in the industrial sector.
"The market for Innominate's range of products is expanding as many organizations take heed of the potential problems caused by any infiltration of a company's manufacturing and SCADA control systems", said Mike Finley, president of INS who also successfully represents Hirschmann and Westermo in the US. "Without adequate protection, the potential risks could cause irrevocable damage to an organization's image, production and profits. We are very pleased to be able to offer our customers Innominate's range of proven products to address these threats."
