Swivel Secure Strengthens Business Operations in Latin America
Appointment of Reseller Manager in the region driven by increased demand for authentication solutions
WETHERBY, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following its expansion into Latin America in 2013, Swivel Secure, a global pioneer of multifactor authentication, has appointed Luís Santos as its LATAM Manager. Working from Swivel’s new base in Panamá, Luís will lead the company’s regional partnership programme, supporting existing resellers and driving the recruitment of new partners.
“The market need in these regions has intensified significantly as governments and other primary institutions have mandated that two factor authentication must be used whenever an employee connects to their systems”
Luís will drive Swivel’s engagement across this strategically significant market, promote the benefits of the Swivel authentication solution and develop its partner programme, designed to provide the channel with sales, marketing and technical support.
“The market need in these regions has intensified significantly as governments and other primary institutions have mandated that two factor authentication must be used whenever an employee connects to their systems,” says Alex Rocha, Country Manager Southern Europe, Africa and Latin America. “Swivel has already signed exclusive government contracts to facilitate these mandates across Latin America and is now seeing a sharp increase in demand for its multifactor authentication solution across enterprises such as retail, finance, and banking.”
“Increasing investments in enterprise IT infrastructure mean that the Latin American market is crying out for a versatile authentication solution,” adds Luís. “Swivel’s results in the region so far have been very positive; therefore the next logical step was to deploy a physical presence in the region. Offering our partners a direct point of contact is an important component of Swivel’s business ethos. I will be focusing on working with our partners to promote the benefits of the Swivel solution across Latin America.”
Offering the widest range of user deployment options, according to Gartner, the Swivel platform offers the choice of mobile apps, SMS, OATH token and interactive voice response channels when full multifactor authentication is required. Swivel customers can also opt to utilise PINsafe, Swivel’s unique, patented one-time-code extraction protocol. PINsafe combines the use of registered PINs with random ten digit security strings that are sent to the user via SMS, mobile app, telephone, or web. The user combines the PIN with the string in order to work out their unique one-time access code. This protocol puts the user right at the heart of Swivel’s strong multifactor authentication process.
