WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in network security and intelligence, secure Wi-Fi and multi-factor authentication, has signed a UK distribution agreement with Oxfordshire-based Purdicom, which specialises in delivering mid-market networking, wireless and cloud-based solutions. The partnership adds value for Purdicom partners, by further expanding the distributor’s portfolio to include a wide range of robust security solutions.
WatchGuard’s best-in-class security technology incorporates a full suite of services needed to provide enterprise-grade security to midsized organisations, including: advanced services for protecting against evolving malware, ransomware and data breaches, as well as traditional intrusion prevention, gateway antivirus, application control, spam prevention and URL filtering. WatchGuard also offers multi-factor authentication, secure Wi-Fi and network intelligence products to provide complete end-user solutions.
“The Purdicom and WatchGuard partnership promises a 360-degree solution, which is straightforward and simple to integrate,” said Steve Kent, Sales & Marketing Director at Purdicom. “With two tiers of security services, Basic and Total Security Suite, WatchGuard provides security solutions for a wide range of vertical markets backed up by a strong reputation for supporting its channel partners.”
Earlier this year, WatchGuard introduced its new WatchGuardONE Partner Programme to minimise barriers to entry and ensure maximum return on investment for the channel. The Partner Programme enables resellers to have individual specialisations in either network security, secure Wi-Fi or multi-factor authentication, to reach full WatchGuardONE status. With WatchGuardONE status comes financial incentives and sales, marketing and technical support, and there are no revenue threshold requirements.
“We are delighted to welcome Purdicom and its 1,600 plus resellers on board,” said Jonathan Whitley, sales director for Northern Europe at WatchGuard. “With its focus on fixed and wireless networking solutions in the mid-market, we are in an ideal position to add the all-important security piece to Purdicom’s growing portfolio.”
