In a move to expand its high-end enterprise offerings, national systems integrator Brennan IT has become the second Check Point Authorised Consultant Partner in Australia.
Brennan IT joins integrator e-Secure as part of the security vendor's Partner Alliance Program, which includes Internet service provider (ISP) and managed security provider (MSP), partners.
Formed four years ago, through the merger of CNI Consulting and Pacific Computing & Innovation, Brennan IT has grown to over 50 staff. The company has traditionally provided network services to the mid-market, but with the majority of its workforce comprised of engineers, Brennan IT has targeted the high-end enterprise with specific services, according to its managing director David Stevens"For too long Australia's corporations have been starved for choice in the enterprise security arena. We see a terrific opportunity to provide more responsive high-end security services at a more reasonable price," Stevens said.
"[Brennan IT] has been involved in the security arena for some time," added Stevens. "We identified security early as a natural growth path for us, and it doesn't hurt that security has become a high growth area."
To gain the certification, Brennan IT had to have at least two accredited engineers with upper level Check Point Certification per office. The company did one better, picking up two former Check Point instructors Michael Demery and Jim McCormack. It also had to demonstrate an ability to integrate Check Point and third-party OPSEC (open platform for security) products into a complete customer solution, a company statement said.
