Osmosis Ireland appointed exclusive Irish distributor for Mobiu – The Secure Portable Office

London: Osmosis Ireland has recently signed an exclusive distribution agreement with The Key Revolution, the company behind Mobiu – the secure portable office solution. Mobiu is as easy as a USB stick but with technology patented by telecoms giant Vodafone, it’s infinitely more clever.

Mobiu is an innovative USB device that stores all the software required to remotely access documents and is secured by the SIMAssured™ chip and pin technology similar to that used by banks and mobile phone operators for secure user authentication.

The chip and pin device enables tamper proof access to files, data and applications from any online computer running Windows XP and Vista, leaving no trace behind. The ability to ‘remote kill’ the device if it is detected on an online PC is now a simple reality, preventing unwanted third party access to information. Mobiu comes with a MobiVault of 5GB storage as standard and functionality that means file sharing and collaborative working is easy using the shared workspaces or “MobiRooms”.

Adrian Burholt, CEO of The Key Revolution comments, “We’re very excited to be teaming up with Osmosis to take Mobiu into the Irish market. As businesses look for ways to survive and grow through the current economic climate, increasing mobility capability without compromising on security could make a big difference. We hope Irish businesses will see Mobiu as an innovative and cost effective way to enhance their operations.”

Brian Honan, Managing Director of Osmosis Ireland believes this partnership offers Osmosis the opportunity to expand into the area of mobility for remote workers. According to Brian; “The Mobiu product is truly original and has never been seen before in the Irish Marketplace – which makes this distribution partnership even more exciting. We believe the Mobiu product can be just as successful in Ireland as it has been throughout the UK and we are delighted to kick off 2009 with such an innovative new product”.

Established in 1999, Osmosis is Ireland’s largest distributor of Audio Visual equipment as well as a massive IT and CCTV Distributor. Osmosis is a trade-only distributor, based in Dublin with a nation-wide network of resellers and retailers. The company works with over 35 suppliers to provide customers with the latest in AV and IT solutions. The Osmosis product range includes digital signage, interactive whiteboards, LCD televisions, plasma screens, computer peripherals, touch monitors, digital video recorders and CCTV cameras.
