UK security vendor, BullGuard Systems, has appointment Altech Systems as its latest retail and OEM distributor.
Altech national sales manager, Kevin Hartin, said the vendor had originally approached his company during the local CeBit show back in May. "BullGuard is a really neat solution - it's mostly wizard driven," he said.
Altech will be offering three different versions including a boxed product, a 10-pack of OEM discs and a 90-day trial version.
With the software sold on a 12-month license, registered resellers will make 25 per cent on every subsequent renewal for any of the three versions. Hartin said the pre-installed trial had a conversion rate of 30 per cent while the boxed product was up at 75-80 per cent.
BullGuard has also inked deals with Optima, Tecksel and Impact Systems in recent times. Its local sales manager, James Rhodes, said the appointments were part of an ongoing push into the local market.
"Australia is being targeted as a major market," he said. "The level of broadband coverage is making it more relevant - especially to our backup product because you need broadband access to make best use of it."
According to Rhodes, Altech will soon have access to new BullGuard kit including a mobile product for smart phones and PDAs as well as Steel Security - a version of its antivirus software for gamers. This switches off when playing certain trusted games titles, allowing more system resources to be spent running the game.
