The primary reason for the expansion into Finland was requests received from various vendors, which were interested in working together with a qualified Value Added Distributor (VAD), focusing on IT-Security in Finland. As a result, Infinigate Finland will already start with an impressive portfolio of well-known security brands such as RSA, Sonicwall, Ipswitch, SecurEnvoy, Radware, CarbonBlack, Cylance, GFI and Rapid7.
“The move into Finland is well timed with the expansion of the Infinigate Group. For a longer period, we have been analyzing the Finnish IT-Security Distribution landscape and our conclusion was that there is a need for a Value Added Distributor like Infinigate with a focus on Security," says David Martinez, Founder and CEO of Infinigate.
With this step Infinigate fortifies its presence within Europe and further strengthens its position in the Nordics. At the moment, the company is present in 9 European countries.
The strategy of the company is to serve as a VAD for IT Security Solutions and distributing the solutions and services only via the Finnish IT reseller channel.
“The Infinigate’s decision to locate in Finland underlines both the overall attractiveness of the Finnish market and our strong ICT industry. We warmly welcome Infinigate to Finland,” comments Kyösti Järnefelt, Senior Advisor at Finpro’s Invest in Finland.
The new Finnish subsidiary, Infinigate Finland Oy, is based in the Finnish Capital Region in the city of Espoo.
