Business is all about people and relationships. Brigantia seem to have recruited a great young team of personable, knowledgeable and switched on professionals in both the North and London. They seem to have simply got the current trends in the technology channel and have chosen an of the minute specialist niche around secure communications and cybersecurity. They have added an InfoSec services consultancy capacity to assist their partners around Cyber Essentials, Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO27701 as well as with GDPR. Currently we are working with their vendors CyberSmart and KnowBe4 and are also taking a close look at Heimdal Security. Brigantia’s November event at Twickenham Stadium had some brilliant high level speakers from their vendor partners but was also great fun to attend and to network with peers from across the UK. We see Brigantia becoming an ever more important supplier in 2019 as we roll out a number of their innovative services and products to our customer base.
Chris Savigar, Operations Director
Brigantia is a breath of fresh air in the distribution space. The work they are doing around secure communications and managed services is quite excellent. Brigantia’s niche specialism around cybersecurity and compliance is very interesting and has been a direct contributing factor to a growth in recurring revenue in our business. We are currently working with their relatively new to market vendors CyberSmart and Heimdal Security. The first is an interesting continuous compliance tool that assists with Cyber Essentials and is aimed squarely at micro and small business customers and the second offers a first-class full stack next-generation endpoint cybersecurity solution. We were one of the original Heimdal Security partners in the UK and see their technology as a core part of our business for years to come. For those that are not in the know or perhaps remember Brigantia as a buying group, I would recommend them to look again with fresh eyes as they have evolved into quite a different animal and are now firmly a specialist distributor with benefits. The events Brigantia run for their partners throughout the year are very good and packed full of relevant content. In planning 2019 we can see Brigantia becoming an ever more important distribution partner.

I have been working with Brigantia throughout 2018 and they have been such a responsive new distributor and consultancy partner. They have adopted a layered approach to cybersecurity and have introduced us to innovative next generations vendors such as CyberSmart, Egenera, Heimdal Security, ISL Online, Knowbe4 and The Email Laundry amongst others. The InfoSec services team within Brigantia have also provided a great deal of assistance in winning and then helping to deliver some consultancy and data security business that would have otherwise been lost. We see Brigantia and their portfolio of vendors being very important to us as we further grow our business in 2019. Business is all about relationships and Brigantia know how to look after their partners thus helping us to grow our businesses especially around recurring revenue services.
