Tech Data And Trend Micro Team Up To Integrate Licensing Management Platform Into Solutions Store

CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD), one of the world's largest distributors of IT products and services, today announced its partnership with Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the global leader in cloud security and virtualization, to integrate Trend Micro's Licensing Management Platform (LMP) into Tech Data's Solutions Store. Trend Micro's LMP is a designated application for managed service providers (MSP), which allows Trend Micro MSP resellers direct software license provisioning control for cloud-based SaaS security products.

Tech Data and Trend Micro will pilot this integration with a select group of MSP partners using Trend Micro's LMP and Tech Data's Solutions Store, which provides access to the full benefits of Tech Data's recurring and metered billing and provisioning system, powered by StreamOne.

"This seamless integration of systems will significantly benefit our reseller partners because we will be able to provide accurate and consolidated billing across all solutions provisioned through Tech Data and Trend Micro," said Bharath Natarajan, director of product marketing, TDCloud and Software Services at Tech Data. "Once the implementation between the Solutions Store and Licensing Management Platform is extended to all of our resellers, they will no longer have to worry about disparities in billing and license management—ultimately freeing them up to focus more on their customers' security needs."

"At Trend Micro, we are pleased to reach the pilot and launch phase of this highly sophisticated systems integration between Trend Micro and Tech Data," said Gil Morales, director of Channel Sales at Trend Micro. "With tight integration of our systems, Tech Data's MSP resellers will have the ability to self-provision Trend Micro SaaS security products and remove the overhead associated with user counts and billing. This is a big win for MSP reseller partners, and opens the door to how software acquisition will be managed by channel partners in 2013 and beyond. "
