Today Ubisecure announces the company’s expansion of our core Identity Management business into the DACH region. Heading up our new DACH presence is newly appointed Volker Zinser, a cybersecurity industry veteran most recently serving as Director of Sales, Cyber Security Solutions at CA Technologies. Ubisecure’s DACH presence will be headquartered out of Munich.
Last year we announced a phase one plan to expand out of Finland to Sweden, Norway, BENELUX and the UK. Since beginning phase one, Ubisecure has held several local IAM Academy events, established key new partnerships and welcomed many new customers in the region, including wins in the UK Government and IoT space.
DACH, comprising of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, is an important region for phase two of Ubisecure’s expansion plan. The opportunity in DACH is driven by a mature undertaking of digital transformation initiatives, and a heightened local need to ensure identity data privacy. As security and privacy are still key drivers for the adoption of the Ubisecure Identity Platform, there is an immediately obvious market fit.
Our expansion into DACH will support the already successful RapidLEI partnerships we have in Germany. Especially as we work towards launching the new RtX (Right to Represent) service that combines both Legal Entity Identifiers and Customer IAM technology.
Volker Zinser said, “I’m very excited to be leading this growth phase in the DACH region as I see lots of opportunity to connect with local partners and customers. Ubisecure is well respected in the digital identity sector, with a strong and unique portfolio and a commitment to innovation. As a partner-first company, I know that Ubisecure will have a high success rate adding value to our partners’ offerings and contributing to the radical digitalisation of DACH businesses and public sector organisations.”
Paul Norris, Head of Sales at Ubisecure said, “Our expansion phase began in 2018 and Ubisecure has already welcomed new Identity Platform customers throughout Europe in the public sector as well as the automotive, IoT and technology sectors. Having an industry veteran of Volker’s experience and stellar reputation join Ubisecure to head the next formal phase of expansion into the DACH region is very good news for our European customers and partners.”
The Ubisecure team is excited to be working with Volker as we build new partnerships and take the benefits of our proven Identity Platform into the region. You can read the full press release here.
