Bluesocket, Inc., the leader in open wireless security and management solutions, today announced it has partnered with DNS, a security and networking distributor, to market the company's BlueSecure portfolio of Wireless LAN solutions in the Nordic region. The partnership will enable Bluesocket to further develop its presence in northern Europe including Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland and will benefit from the strong position DNS has there as the fastest growing security distributor in the region.
Bluesockets compelling proposition teamed with the dynamic marketplace opportunity in the Nordic region and the high levels of security expertise we see in DNS means that we are confident this partnership will prove a success, said Jim Calderbank, Director of Channels EMEA, Bluesocket. Bluesocket will benefit from the proliferation of wireless access, devices, users and infrastructures in Scandinavia and the growing requirements for enterprises to embrace secure wireless networking, he added.
Torsten Schmidt, Managing Director at DNS commented, With the Nordic region a rapidly developing marketplace for wireless networking there is a growing concern for securing the enterprise, and we have large customer installation requirements. After an extensive investigation, we determined that cost and complexity are driving factors for our resellers customers in deploying a secure infrastructure. Bluesockets portfolio is the best as it promises a secure infrastructure from end-to-end.
The market for wireless security in the Nordic region has great potential right now, and we are seeing strong growth in sectors like healthcare and education, and increasingly in enterprise. With this rapid growth in wireless connectivity, DNS is happy to take advantage of the opportunity to work with Bluesocket in this emerging market, Schmidt added.
The new product set that DNS will be distributing is part of Bluesocket's strategy to bring trust and simplicity to increasingly complex wireless networks around the globe. DNS will be distributing Bluesocket's entire product line, including BlueSecure Controllers, as well as the new BlueSecure WLAN solutions that were launched earlier this year. The new products include access points that require zero-configuration and the industry's first centralised RF sensor. With this end-to-end WLAN product portfolio, Bluesocket offers DNS a complete WLAN solution for its solution provider customers.
