A10 Networks has appointed Sydney-based network security consultancy, AwareIT, as a reseller partner.
A10 networks managing director A/NZ, Greg Barnes, said the company selected AwareIT for its deep expertise in delivering cost-effective managed vulnerability services to the banking and finance sector, state and local government, and a broad spectrum of enterprise sites.
“The partnership augments our fast-expanding network of value-added channel partners and will help to advance our market position,” he said.
AwareIT was formed two years ago when a number of experienced IT professionals coalesced.
The company specialises in penetration testing of Web application, infrastructure (internal and external), wireless and social engineering environments.
AwareIT director, Peter Bremner, said his company did critical network testing for customers.
"A10’s application delivery controller [ADC] technology, with its SSL security, load-balancing and reporting, will give us a better way to operate," he said.
"Those functions are very important to our customers and A10’s technology dovetails with our expertise in helping to fix problems.
“IT security is moving fast, and what organisations want from their networks is changing so dynamically that we need to have the most effective solutions to stay ahead of the situation. A10 will help to keep us ahead.”

Bremner said that throughout AwareIT’s long term association with A10’s ANZ Managing Director, Greg Barnes and Regional Sales Manager Sue Stokes, they had proved to be responsive high achievers, a high priority for any organisation dealing with vendors.
“We look forward with confidence to a close working relationship with A10, which is so important in a successful partnership. Their people are driven to success, and we are keen to be involved in this.”
