unipalm and patchlink clean up the channel

By | January 16, 2006

Unipalm, the UK and Ireland№s specialist distributor of secure e-business solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with PatchLink, the global leader for security patch and vulnerability management solutions, to provide the channel with an advanced range of network security products, services and support.

іThis partnership is very positive for Unipalm as managing the collection, analysis and delivery of security patches is an important focus for end-users and one that we believe will present a great opportunity for our channel partners,І comments David Ellis, director of e-Security at Unipalm/Computerlinks (UK) Ltd. іAnother plus point is that there is an established synergy with other vendors we partner with, such as Check Point and ISS.І

Network security is becoming more complex, costly and time consuming for the IT manager to budget. PatchLink№s core security product PatchLink Update delivers a tightly integrated, multi-platform, enterprise-level security patch and vulnerability management package designed specifically to help CSOs, risk managers, compliance officers and IT administrators address IT security issues across the enterprise. The solutions combine vulnerability assessment, patch management, network access control, auditing and reporting to help organisations address emerging security threats while minimising costs and complexity.

іRegulatory compliance has focused IT mangers№ attention on closing the holes in their IT infrastructure to reduce the risk of a security breach, elevating the need for effective patch management,І says Alan Bentley, managing director, PatchLink EMEA. іThe partnership with Unipalm allows us to target a wider market. Unipalm is well respected in the security space and its relationships with the reseller market provide us with the right avenue to reach out to more end-users.І

Unipalm will be showcasing the products to the channel by running a series of commercial and technical training sessions. Additionally, partners will be supported with investment in end-user lead-generation initiatives such as marketing collateral, callout support, telemarketing campaigns and management seminars.
