Computerlinks Expand Security Portfolio

Computerlinks, the distributor of IT security and Internet technology solutions, has signed a worldwide agreement to distribute SanDisk Enterprise Division Security Solutions. This includes SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise range of centrally managed encrypted USB Flash Drives.

The agreement complements Computerlinks’ existing portfolio of end point security products, which includes RSA, Lumension, Citrix and Check Point and provides resellers with a comprehensive secure mobile solution for enterprises and government agencies. Computerlinks is the only global IT security distributor to provide resellers with such an integrated and complementary portfolio of vendor technologies.

In the wake of numerous high profile data losses and an increasingly mobile workforce, organisations are demanding flexible, secure solutions that also reduce total cost of ownership. As part of the initiative to support the channel to exploit these opportunities, Computerlinks also announced that it will be hosting a series of events to support existing resellers in maximising the market opportunity and also to recruit new channel partners.

The first event, scheduled for February 2009, will be an exclusive demonstration of how SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise storage keys integrate with RSA’s two factor authentication technology. A second event will also be held in February to provide existing and potential partners with a technical overview of the SanDisk Enterprise product range and details of the commercial benefits of joining Computerlinks’ Partner Programme.
