Abacode and Tech Data partner to bring data protection and cybersecurity to UK businesses


Global cybersecurity leader Abacode has partnered with Tech Data – one of the world’s largest technology distributors helping companies including HP, Apple, Cisco, Microsoft bring their products to market – to help UK companies through their cybersecurity compliance auditing processes.

The partnership will see Tech Data roll out Abacode’s managed cybersecurity and regulatory compliance programs to companies of all sizes, at a time when more businesses than ever before are under pressure to respond to customer data protection and internal cybersecurity obligations.

Abacode also believes security and compliance is an effective marketing strategy for businesses, and that effective and mature security programmes coupled with third-party verifications can reduce customer onboarding times and help smaller businesses secure larger clients.

As a full-service cybersecurity firm, Abacode has years of experience conducting assessments and consulting clients through entity-wide process and control implementations, performing security services in line with a comprehensive range of compliance standards, and hopes to help as many businesses as possible through its partnership with Tech Data.

Bryan Graf, SVP and Partner at Abacode, said: “ As UK companies come to grips with sweeping compliance and regulation, we understand the importance of partnering with Tech Data in order to help their clients and partners meet this critical need.

“Our business has been engaged in helping organizations consolidate all of their cyber-risk, regulatory compliance and managed security services under one roof. It’s been great to partner with Tech Data and such a great team.

Alex Ryals, Vice President, Security Solutions at Tech Data, commented: “ We rely on strategic vendor partnerships to help drive Tech Data’s brand and services forward, and Abacode is one of those companies that we are excited to collaborate with.

“Abacode’s people and processes are top-notch, and they bring a level of quality and depth of services that fits perfectly into our value-added portfolio.
