Westcon Group, a value-added distributor, has extended its global distribution agreement with HP Enterprise Security. Effective immediately, the full HP Enterprise Security portfolio which includes ArcSsight, Tipping Point and Fortify will be made available to Westcon reseller partners across the Middle East region.
This expanded relationship in the Middle East stems from a global agreement signed naming Westcon as HP Enterprise Security’s first-ever global distributor. This expanded the distributor’s authority to deliver HP Enterprise Security in many new countries and further deepened a strategic commitment to each business. The deal ensures a comprehensive sales engagement process for HP Enterprise Security’s channel and better addresses global needs with new programmes and streamlined procedures. Multiple technical engineers dedicated to HP Security projects will strengthen the distributor’s value-add into architecture design, proof-of-concept, support and training, the statement said.
Christopher Green, Divisional Director, Westcon Middle East said, “We are delighted to have signed up with HP Enterprise Security to develop the Middle East market for their ArcSight, Tipping Point and Fortify technologies. We believe this adds considerable value to our existing portfolio of leading security solutions as they continue to drive product innovation in core markets, further strengthens our position as the market-leading security distributor in the Middle East with the ability to deliver outstanding support to our customers and channel partners.”
“As the information security threat continues to increase, this agreement will enable businesses in the Middle East to better protect themselves,” said Stephen Walsh, Senior Director, Channel Sales for EMEA & APJ. “Westcon’s worldwide reach, proven ability to coordinate efforts between global customers and resellers, and expertise with leading cloud and service providers that support multinational companies will expand HP Enterprise Security’s presence in the Middle East.”
