SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IDdriven, Inc. (OTCQB: IDDR), developer of the new breed of Identity and Access Management solutions, today announced it has partnered with Tobania, a market leading Belgium-based enterprise tech consulting firm with an impressive Fortune 500 client list and a 2016 sales forecast of about $70 million.
Today's news follows last month's announcement that the Company has partnered with PATECCO, a Germany-based enterprise consulting firm and channel partner that specializes in the Identity and Access Management ("IAM") sector of enterprise IT security solutions. Tobania brings to four, the total number of enterprise tech consultant / channel partners that IDdriven has engaged in the past few weeks. In June, the Company announced it had engaged the Washington State-based Oxford Computer Group on the west coast, and Virginia-based Zeva, Inc. on the east coast.
The recent addition of two top-tier European enterprise technology consulting groups provides IDdriven with a robust sales footprint for market penetration throughout the US and Europe. In addition to its Sacramento, California corporate headquarters, IDdriven has a wholly owned European subsidiary based in The Netherlands, the heart of the European Union ("EU"), enabling the Company to do business seamlessly across the US and EU.
The Company anticipates engaging one or more additional channel partners in the US in the months ahead to fulfil specific industry or corporate sectors, or to saturate certain regions.

It has an Infrastructure and Security Solution Division, and over 300 employees, 600 active consultants, more than 450 customers and a 2016 revenue forecast of about USD$70 million as well as four other regional offices around Belgium. Clients include BNP Paribas Fortis, Deutsche Bank, ING, Proximus (global telecom); KBC (bank with 16,000 employees worldwide); Johnson&Johnson, Boston Scientific, Volvo, Siemens, AGFA, Fujicolor, Honda and many others.
Tobania reports, "Organizations are feeling the need to keep their IT infrastructure up to date, while the popularity of Bring-Your-Own-Device policies is presenting your IT team with brand new security and cloud computing challenges."
Commenting on its new channel partner relationship with IDdriven, Tobania Chief Executive Officer and Chief Marketing Officer, Lode Peeters, said, "Tobania is implementing the IDdriven IAM solution for Tobania and our hundreds of employees and consultants. I know of no stronger endorsement. It is the next generation of IAM solutions, intuitive with a simple user interface, flexible with on-premises and/or cloud-based installation and highly cost effective.
"Because the solution scales efficiently, and enables easy plug & play installation for companies needing basic functionality as well as offering in-depth customizable features for large companies desiring a sophisticated systems integration, we see an enormous opportunity to roll out the IDdriven solution across Europe to enterprises large and small," Mr. Peeters added.
Arend Verweij, IDdriven Chief Executive Officer, said, "The relationship between a software-as-a-service ("SaaS") developer, and a channel partner requires collaboration and a shared commitment to best serve the customers and their end-users (or 'identities'). Tobania is known for setting the highest possible standards for customer service. We are thrilled to partner with Tobania who, along with PATECCO, represent IDdriven across the European marketplace in different ways that complement each other to ensure blanket coverage."
