Infinigate expands to Finland

18th January 2017 - Infinigate, one of the leading European VADs (Value Added Distributor) for IT Security Solutions expands its presence in Europe with the opening of its new subsidiary in Finland. With this step Infinigate is now present in 9 countries within Europe and further strengthens its leading position in the Nordics.

The new Finnish subsidiary (Infinigate Finland Oy) is based in Espoo – neighbouring Helsinki – and will pursue exactly the same strategy as the whole Infinigate Group, operating as Value Added Distributor for IT Security Solutions and distributing the solutions and services only via the Finnish IT reseller channel.

The primary reason for the expansion into Finland was the number of requests from various vendors, which were looking to work together with a highly qualified and true VAD focussed on IT-Security in Finland. As a result Infinigate Finland will already start with an impressive portfolio of well-known security brands such as RSA, Sonicwall, Ipswitch, SecurEnvoy, Radware, CarbonBlack, Cylance, GFI and Rapid7. The vendor portfolio will get expanded over time, this in line with Infinigate's strategy to ensure a constant high level of quality.

Thomas Hagelid, Regional Manager Nordics at Infinigate states: "Infinigate is having great success in the Nordics and has gained a market leading position in IT-Security distribution in the region. We are proud to now cover the full Nordics, including Iceland and Baltics." 

"The move into Finland is well timed with the expansion of the Infinigate Group. For a longer period, we have been analyzing the Finnish IT-Security Distribution landscape and our conclusion was that there is a need for a Value Added Distributor like Infinigate with focus on Security" – says David Martinez, Founder and CEO of Infinigate.
