Alstom IT has beefed up its security product portfolio, signing up as a distributor for Check Point's range of security products.
The distributor landed the appointment after it was approached by Check Point who were looking to sign on a distributor that worked in the niche software market.
Alstom IT will distribute the security vendor's VPN and firewall products, which complement the distributor's existing security offering, said Graham Connolly, Alstom IT's product manager. "We will be concentrating on Check Point's firewall product which complements our Trend Micro antivirus and WebSense web-filtering software products. The products interlock rather than overlap."
Alstom joins Check Point distributors Express Data and LAN Systems in taking the Check Point security products to market, however Connolly said that the three distributors focus on different spaces in the market.
