Megatec has expanded its comprehensive range of security products with its appointment as a WatchGuard distributor.
The latest addition to the Megatec range, which includes products from Security Dynamics and Aventail, was initiated due to Megatec's "substantial technical support capability, financial strength and security related expertise", states Ian Rutherford, marketing manager at Megatec.
Utilising WatchGuard's uncomplicated firewall, the duo will focus on the small and medium sized market of companies planning to enter the e-commerce arena. WatchGuard's LiveSecurity complements this market due to its minimal operational and maintenance demands.
And the timing is perfect, according to Megatec's managing director Peter Spring. "Demand for managed security is at an all-time high. The moment a business connects to the Internet and begins communication with branch offices, customers or trading partners, it must also protect the network against potential security breaches," points out Spring.
Rutherford reiterates this: "Megatec security sales have been growing at close to 100 per cent annually, reflecting the growing awareness of the market."
