ATEK Access Technologies Partners with Sales Firms to Grow Datakey Brand

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (August 19, 2015) – ATEK Access Technologies has entered into partnerships with four manufacturer’s representative firms to meet the growing demand for its Datakey rugged portable memory products. The firms will be responsible for selling ATEK Access Technologies’ Datakey products into new and existing accounts, and identifying new applications for those products.

“Datakey has a long history in the embedded industry, and we are excited to bring this innovative technology to our customers,” said Kathie Cahill, president of Net Sales Company, one of the new sales firms with representatives in New York. “The Datakey ruggedized memory technology will prove valuable to OEM manufacturers looking for rugged and reliable memory solutions.”

The other sales firms include Phoenix Components LLC in Florida, Norris & Associates LLC in Massachusetts and Westech Associates in California and Nevada.

“We offer the industry’s leading line of rugged portable memory solutions and have some exciting new products in development to address the security needs of embedded systems, particularly for smaller hand-held devices,” said Sherri McDaniel, president of ATEK Access Technologies. “These proven sales leaders will help us meet the growing demand for the rugged Datakey product line on the east and west coasts.”

The Datakey product line features portable memory devices that utilize solid over-molded construction, industrial-temperature electronics, redundant electrical contacts and harsh-environment, high cycle-life receptacles. Additionally, Datakey products have a proven history of long-term availability that consumer memory products, like USB flash drives and SD cards, lack. Since 1976, Datakey products have been the preferred portable memory solution by many of the world’s largest defense, medical and commercial OEMs.
