GENEVA, May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Silent Circle today announced a North American Distributor Agreement with Ingram Micro Mobility, which specializes in distribution for all aspects of the mobility device lifecycle. The agreement marks a significant step in Silent Circle's maturation and growth, as Ingram Micro Mobility holds longstanding working relationships with network operators, manufacturers and other mobile-industry players across the United States and Canada.
"Whether you're an enterprise or an individual, mobile privacy and security are of major concern," said Bashar Nejdawi, Executive Vice President, Ingram Micro and President, North America, Ingram Micro Mobility. "Silent Circle provides that layer of security and peace of mind for many users."
"Privacy is at the heart of everything we do at Silent Circle. Demand across North America is increasing for devices and services that give users the opportunity to put privacy first," said Bill Conner, President & CEO of Silent Circle. "We are honored to have the opportunity to collaborate with such a sophisticated global distribution partner as Ingram Micro Mobility. Together with Ingram, Silent Circle will have the reach to professionally deliver on the growing orders for Blackphones and Silent Suite."
The way people work has evolved. With a growing number of employees now using personal devices to connect to their enterprise networks, and with mobile devices an increasingly critical element of every day business, traditional walled garden approaches to security are no longer enough. Silent Circle has created a platform of devices, software and services to offer true enterprise privacy: a combination of security and policy that focuses on keeping information private from the start, instead of relying on outdated approaches to security.
