Recently established security distributor, Computerlinks Network Security Systems, has added Crossbeam Systems and Lumension Security (formerly Patchlink) to its portfolio.
The Sydney-based distributor has a global agreement with Crossbeam and a UK agreement with Lumension, which offers unified protection and control of all enterprise endpoints, applications and devices. Lumension is the newly launched corporate identity of Patchlink and SecureWave. Crossbeam produces a range of C-series and X-series security switches. X-series features consolidation and virtualisation technologies that reduce multi-security platform requirements and aims to minimise complexity.
Computerlinks managing director, Matthew Hales, said the new relationships provided it with a comprehensive end point security portfolio. Crossbeam also enhanced its perimeter security offering.
"The most well known areas of end point security cover things such as USB device control, data security and encryption, data leakage, monitoring and vulnerability management," he said.
Resellers taking on the Lumension range would find opportunities in USB device management or vulnerability and patch management, Halle said. The end point technology was suitable for federal government, banking and finance sectors.
Crossbeam will be targeted at the enterprise and government space.
"It is a great platform for resellers of products like Check Point, WebSense and Trend Micro to standardise on as part of their solution sales," he said.
Computerlinks currently has 10 partners on its books.
Hales said he would like to increase its partner base by adding on more system integrators and security VARs. Technical training and evaluation support will be on offer to partners.
"As they get up to speed with these technologies and see the opportunities with their customers we can take it further with vendor accreditation programs and sales leads," he said.
