Tech Data Europe announces new distribution agreement with Lookout

Tech Data Europe complements mobility portfolio with Lookout’s security solution

Barcelona, 12 May 2016 – Tech Data Europe has announced a new Europe-wide agreement with Lookout, a global leader in securing mobility. Lookout’s cloud-based solution, offered through Tech Data Mobile, protects individuals and enterprises alike by predicting and stopping mobile attacks before they do harm.

With this agreement, Tech Data Mobile extends its product portfolio to include licenses of Lookout Premium and provides its reseller community with another revenue stream to complement their mobile offering across accessories, wearables, companion products and software. Lookout’s consumer application for iOS and Android delivers the essential security needed to keep mobile devices safe, including automatic protection from viruses, malware and spyware, lost and stolen phone remediation, privacy controls, and backup.

“The issue of protecting ourselves from the threat of cyberattacks—whether as individuals or in the enterprise—has never been more relevant, as viruses and malware become ever more sophisticated and numerous.” said Stephen Nolan, senior vice president, Tech Data Mobile. “We are really looking forward to building Lookout’s trusted and powerful protection into the integrated mobility solutions that we offer to our partners in the channel across Europe.”

“Your phone is the center of your life, and keeping it safe is one of the first precautions that individuals take,” said Gert-Jan Schenk, vice president, Lookout EMEA. “Through this partnership, we’re able to tap into Tech Data’s comprehensive European distribution network to expand the reach of Lookout’s consumer solution, while providing real value across these resellers.”

Lookout’s new Smart Code Licensing program makes it easy to sell and to purchase bulk licenses of Lookout’s Premium consumer offering for both small businesses and individual consumers.
