Sourcefire appoints WhiteGold Solutions as distie in NZ

WhiteGold to distribute all of Sourcefire's security solutions in NZ

Cybersecurity vendor, Sourcefire, has announced its first distribution agreement in New Zealand with WhiteGold Solutions.

As part of the agreement, WhiteGold will serve as a distributor in New Zealand for all of Sourcefire's security solutions.

According to Sourcefire, the appointment expands on its agreement with WhiteGold in the market and further enables support of companies’ growing need for next-generation security network technologies and solutions to address advanced malware.

The company began working with WhiteGold Solutions last year in the Australian market.

“Asia-Pacific will be the fast growing market for security appliances around the world, and it is critical for us to establish strong relationships with distributors across A/NZ that can add significant value to our proposition.” Sourcefire A/NZ regional director, Chris Wood, said.

WhiteGold Solutions strategic advisor, Leigh Howard, claimed its alliance with Sourcefire in New Zealand followed its search for a vendor with technologies surrounding Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS), which he claimed was a perceived gap in WhiteGold’s portfolio.

“We see strong alignment between Sourcefire’s channel partners and our own reseller customer base. Our expanded agreement with Sourcefire builds on our previous relationship and helps us to address the entire spectrum of security threats in New Zealand, as well as Australia,” Howard added.

WhiteGold was also most recently signed on as Fortinet’s sole distie in Australia.
