Unipalm, the UK and Ireland´s specialist distributor of secure e-business solutions, has been selected by Symantec as a value added distributor for endpoint security solutions and its behaviour-based intrusion prevention technology.
David Ellis, director of e-Security at Unipalm, comments: “With the big rise in mobile users and devices connecting to the corporate network, securing the endpoint has become critical for organisations. Through its acquisition of Sygate, Symantec now has strong expertise in endpoint protection and compliance, which complements its leadership in client security. The ability to offer organisations a comprehensive endpoint protection solution for both managed and unmanaged devices is a massive opportunity for the channel. We are looking forward to partnering with Symantec as one of its specialist distributors in this area, to help ensure that our customers can protect their information assets from misuse, theft or day zero attacks.”
Steven Rose, Symantec UK managing director comments: “Working with Unipalm as a specialist value added distributor in the area of endpoint compliance solutions allows Symantec and its certified channel integrators to address and serve joint enterprise customers. This direct touch model will help to ensure that projects are successful, by providing competences, services and support to underpin our best of breed endpoint compliance offerings and deliver optimal customer service.”
