The insight

When Decathlon, a French sporting goods retailer with more than 1,700 stores in 70 countries, sought to expand the digital side of its business, Security Manager Matthieu Vanoost wanted a long-term, committed partner with which Decathlon could grow. He found that—and much more—when he teamed up with Trend Micro.

The experience

Vanoost was looking for a true security partnership, one that would proactively help Decathlon find the right solutions in the context of a complex financial situation and fast-evolving security needs. Trend delivered by cultivating trust and working to find affordable, agile solutions that help the company pursue new initiatives with confidence.

For me it's the human touch. The connection was really great because I think that Trend adds real, human value.”

She also introduced Vanoost to key business leaders within Trend, providing him with valuable company connections that are typically difficult for customers to make.
