Over the past 12 months StarLink has demonstrated an incredible commitment and ability to drive and support the Centrify business, articulate our messaging around Zero Trust Security, and deliver first class partner and customer support. This expansion will strengthen our overall distribution strategy and growth in EMEA, and having the additional resources on the ground in territory from StarLink will expedite our ability to reach new partner networks in order to meet our planned partner breadth targets in all regions.”
“We’re proud to extend our strategic partnership with Centrify into Europe. StarLink is making significant investments across Europe to accelerate growth, including deploying headcount on-the-ground in key European markets, including Germany, Benelux and France in the first phase of rollout. These resources will enable Centrify to benefit from our proven business model, by delivering incremental value and partner engagement in each of these regions,” says Niall McGrane, VP Europe at StarLink.
