Wick Hill See Channel Opportunities with Array Networks

Wick Hill has been appointed by American vendor Array Networks to help grow UK sales of its high performance, scalable SSL VPNs. Array’s SPX Series systems hold the title of the world’s highest performing SSL VPN secure access systems. They are scalable up to 64,000 concurrent users and suitable for enterprises down to around 10 concurrent users. Array also provides remote access business continuity solutions based around its SSL VPNs, as well as application acceleration solutions.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “The continuing strong growth in remote access means that application acceleration solutions and high performance SSL VPNs are increasingly important for enterprises. We’re planning for significant channel expansion with Array because of their strong portfolio of products, which includes a unique business continuity solution, and their desire to grow sales in the UK.”

Kevin Thiele, regional sales director Northern Europe for Array Networks, said: “We chose Wick Hill to help us grow the UK market because of its skills and background in launching products into the UK and Germany, as well as its ability to reach the mid-high end space effectively. Working with Wick Hill, we aim to have a network of 30 committed value added resellers by the end of 2007.” Thiele added that he saw opportunities for resellers with SSL VPNs, as the market moved towards them and away from IPsec solutions over the next few years.
