In a move to further strengthen its channel in Europe, Secure Computing has appointed DNS to distribute its entire product portfolio throughout Sweden. DNS will be the first local supplier to provide all three of Secure Computings main product ranges -- Sidewinder G2, SafeWord (including SafeWord for Citrix, Check Point, Cisco, Nortel and Premier Access) and SmartFilter -- to the Swedish reseller network.
DNS currently distributes Check Point, Citrix, Sun Microsystems, Extreme Networks, F5, Bluecoat, VMware, Nokia, Uniprint and Aurema and has strong relationships with many of the top resellers in Sweden. It is also working closely with Secure Computing to identify, sign and recruit new reseller partners.
With demand for security solutions escalating across the region and the increasing awareness of the benefits of integrated security products such as Secure Computings Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance, Sidewinder G2, we are confident this agreement will open up new revenue streams for our channel, says Hans Grnewald, DNS general manager for Networks and Security.
Sidewinder G2 has the strongest credentials of any all-in-one system with application-level firewall protection. It is the only firewall that hasnt had a CERT advisory posted against it in over 10 years. Consequently, our resellers can have every confidence that they are offering their customers the best solutions possible to protect their networks.
We are delighted that our customers in Sweden will now be able to source our products and get sales support on all our products locally, says Keith Hale, regional manager Nordic, Secure Computing. The market for security in this region is very mature, with growing demand for robust and, above all, reliable products. This new agreement will make it simpler for resellers to maximise the opportunities available and build profitably on their existing skills and knowledge.
