IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - March 30, 2016) - SecureAuth Corp., the leader in Adaptive Access Control, today announced it is taking its SecureAuth Partner Program to the next level, empowering partners to capture a greater share of the growing authentication security market. With a well-tuned channel sales model and the resources to match, SecureAuth partners have everything they need to achieve maximum growth while helping customers protect identities with confidence.

"Organizations are challenged by an ever-shifting landscape when it comes to controlling access within their environment.

The expansion of the channel in the U.S. and international regions will continue to allow SecureAuth to deliver a high level of collaboration and innovation into key markets around the globe. "Enabling world-class cybersecurity experts to solve difficult identity challenges is a critical element of our continued growth," said Craig Lund, CEO at SecureAuth. "Our channel program focuses on collaboration so partners have a deep pool of resources to position themselves as trusted advisors while also driving demand through a truly superior program."
