Covata teams with Deutsche Telekom subsidiary for South Africa launch

T-Systems South Africa to resell Covata’s data security product set into the South Africa market and provide in-country support.
The companies are working on a go-to-market campaign

Covata Ltd (ASX:CVT) has signed a reseller deal with T-Systems South Africa (SA), a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom (ETR:DTE).

The reseller agreement follows the success of an initial licence agreement between Covata and T-Systems SA to use SafeShare in July this year.

Covata SafeShare is a file sharing and collaboration solution that protects business information from breaches and enables governance and regulatory compliance requirements.


The new agreement will seek to replicate Covata’s success in Australia with its existing partner Macquarie Telecom (ASX:MAQ).

Covata’s unique product set will grant the South African telecom services firm the ability to provide its customers with more control over their sensitive information.

T-Systems SA maintains an extensive presence in South Africa’s leading public and private sector enterprises and this agreement will provide the opportunity to attract new customers to their own TelekomCLOUD and Microsoft’s Azure Cloud.

Covata will be able to scale swiftly in the region by targeting this existing customer base and will benefit from T-Systems SA providing in-country services and support.

Covata’s chief commercial officer Derek Brown said: “Covata is extremely pleased to announce this new partnership.

“Our unique product offering will provide T-Systems South Africa with a competitive advantage as an ICT services provider and enable their clients to take back control of their data.

“The T-Systems SA team have been using our products for a while now and have seen the need and benefits of making these available to its customer base by providing an industry leading capability in the South African region.

“We are collectively working on a go-to-market campaign and look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership as we scale out.”
