Melbourne-based MPA Systems has been signed up as a national distributor of Snap Gear's VPN firewall appliances and content-filtering services.
MPA configures, supplies, trains, supports and facilitates wide area networks with a focus on replicated sites like head and branch office connectivity. It provides integration services for Internet gateways, mail servers, VPNs, Web storage and operating systems.
"We like the way MPA works closely with its resellers to deliver an array of solutions to the marketplace," said Peter Cronk, vice president of sales for Snap Gear.
"We were impressed with its pre and post-sales support, backed up by industry experience and product deployment expertise."
MPA targets application developers and integrators that sell to SMEs and sees VPN as a potentially high-growth area. It distributes throughout Australia from a head office in Melbourne and a regional base in Sydney.
