ComGuard, a value-added distributor for networking and IT security products in the MENA region has renewed its partnership with Acunetix, a global player in web application security scanning. The renewal reinforces the existing partnership to provide organisations across the region with web security solutions, support, and infrastructure.
The renewed collaboration allows organisations of all sizes and security professionals in the region to benefit from the vendor’s advanced crawling and vulnerability detection technologies while at the same time be assisted by the distributor’s team with specific tailor-made security solutions.

According to the statement released, the distributor will focus on developing, enabling and empowering the channel through technical and sales training workshops while the security engineers at Acunetix will focus on further enhancing the crawling and detection capabilities of Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner.
“The additional value that ComGuard brings to this product is the diversified and strong sales and presales team for both the SMBs and Enterprise segments of the market. This year, the ComGuard Sales Team has been further reinforced to be able to better assist our clients across the regions,” added Jayadevan.
“The renewed commitment of the partnership is based on a two-fold strategy in EMEA, which is aggressive marketing and penetration into new regions,” said Chris Martin, General Manager, Acunetix. “Together with ComGuard, we will have the opportunity to showcase our technology’s capabilities during various roadshows, seminars and other educational events.”
