Niche networking security distributor, inTechnology Australia, has become the first local distributor for the Cyber GateKeeper network endpoint security products from InfoExpress.
Sales and marketing director, Mark Winter, said the new addition would allow resellers to expand out the capabilities of its core Funk Software range of endpoint integrity products.
The Cyber GateKeeper products are designed to provide security policy auditing and access control management across all systems connecting to the network.
InfoExpress and Funk had partnered to develop open standards architecture and worked within the Trusted Computing Group. This had resulted in the development of an Integrity Measurement Collector and an Integrity Measurement Verifier which tied to the two product lines together, he said.
"As the distributor for Funk Software in A/NZ, we see that this working relationship between our two key vendor's products is going to be a key to allowing end users being able to use 802.1x for their authentication," Winter said. "The standards-based approach permits interoperability across a wide variety of existing vendor offerings and ensures scalability to future technologies."
The new deal was beneficial to current reseller partners already dabbling in the EndPoint Integrity framework products, and were targeted at the enterprise market, he said.
inTechnology is the first distributor appointed by InfoExpress in A/NZ as part of its global rollout of a Channel Alliance Partner Program. It planned to introduce product bundles featuring the Cyber GateKeeper solution along with its 802.1x and Radius technology offerings, Winter said.
The distributor would also hold a series of channel training programs for those interested in taking on the Cyber GateKeeper products in conjunction with InfoExpress in January.
