WholeSecurity, the leading provider of behavioural, on-demand endpoint security solutions, has announced its global LockStep Partner Programme for distributors, resellers, systems integrators, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The new programme will give WholeSecuritys partners access to the companys unique behavioural endpoint security solutions, along with demand generation programmes, technical marketing, training and sales support. WholeSecuritys recruiting efforts are initially focused on the North America and EMEA markets, with other regions to follow later in 2005.
In the United Kingdom distributors include Centia Ltd. and Sphinx, along with resellers C&C Technology and Dilgenter. Leading North American resellers already signed to the programme include Accelera Solutions Inc., Cymbel Corporation, DynTek Inc., Emergent OnLine, Go2 Communications Inc., Gotham Technology Group, NexInnovations, Nexum Inc., and Vandis.
We want to establish alliances with security-focused organisations in the mid-market and in the enterprise that demonstrate the expertise to represent our products well, said Anne Hiller, senior vice-president of business development at WholeSecurity.
Hiller continued: The strength of our value proposition, which is illustrated by a ubiquitous market need for our solutions, has brought early partners tremendous success in a market that is experiencing rapidly accelerating growth.
The partner programme will expand WholeSecuritys distribution of its endpoint security solutions, which safeguard PCs against threats such as worms, Trojan horses, keystroke loggers, phishing and other forms of malicious spyware. In the last year, the market has seen an increased demand for endpoint security due to the rise in frequency and nature of these threats, which can enable theft of confidential or proprietary information and cause costly business disruptions.
WholeSecuritys Confidence Online software integrates with leading SSL VPNs from Juniper Networks, Citrix, Nortel, and Aventail, as well as with other remote access technologies, to ensure all computers connecting to the enterprise infrastructure are safeguarded against malicious programmes.
Confidence Online delivers on-demand protection to both managed and unmanaged PCs, including those that are not owned by the company. This enables companies to maximise the benefits of anytime, anywhere network access, while maintaining a high degree of security on endpoint PCs.
