Swivel Secure, a pioneer in tokenless, multi-factor authentication technology has announced the appointment of Optimus Distribution as its new strategic partner in the UAE and Middle East region.

Under the agreement Optimus will distribute Swivel's award winning PINsafe authentication technology from its head office in Dubai. Optimus is a multinational distributor of technology and telecom products servicing solution integrators, solution providers and the value-added reseller community in Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Algeria and Pakistan.

Targeting enterprise as well as Small and Medium Business Resellers Optimus is focused purely on the region's rapidly growing business to business sector.

PINsafe makes use of existing mobile phone and browser functionality to confirm the remote user's identity in SSL VPN and Web application environments and is rapidly becoming established as a cost effective alternative to token -based (2FA) solutions. Widely used by major organisations PINsafe easily scales to tens of thousands of users as well as meeting the needs of businesses with less than 100 employees.

Certified under the UK's CCTM accreditation scheme PINsafe is compatible with all the major SSL VPN vendors and can be used with a variety of Web applications including Microsoft OWA, Exchange and BPOS solutions.

"PINsafe is now the de-facto standard for scalable, two-factor authentication in many parts of the world," commented Fraser Thomas Swivel's CEO. "Optimus has an excellent reputation and an established network of resellers throughout the Middle East giving us a readymade platform to expand our operations in this economically important region."

Commenting for Optimus, Group CEO Suraj Thampi said "Security is massively growing market sector in our region and strong authentication in particular is becoming a key requirement to help businesses protect their network infrastructures. PINsafe is a world-class, proven technology that is easy for our resellers to integrate into their customer's network and remote access solutions, particularly as the mobile phone is already a widely used and accepted business tool in our region."
