Ingram Micro has struck a deal to become the exclusive Australian distributor for AppSense.
AppSense's solutions include profile management, policy management, logon optimisation, desktop virtualisation, privilege management, application access control, Windows 7 migration and zero-day threat protection.
Ingram Micro general manager, advance solution Group, Lee Welch, said AppSense was a perfect fit.
“AppSense has strong technology partnerships with Microsoft, Cisco, Citrix and VMWare and as a result its products are designed to seamlessly integrate and extend those companies offerings," he said.
"Ingram Micro already distributes Microsoft and VMWare, so being able to add AppSense’s range of products is ideal for our resellers and further underlines our commitment to add value in the complementary product ranges we offer."
Welch said this meant specialist resellers could now access a comprehensive range of virtualisation and user environment management products, and then deliver solutions that were the best fit for their customers.
"As far as our resellers are concerned, we are now literally a virtualisation one-stop shop,” Welch said.
AppSense AVP for the APAC region, Michael Bosnar, said Ingram's appointment was a direct result of the company’s history of successful channel growth.
“We were looking for a distribution partner with the ability to rapidly grow and manage our channel business," Bosnar said.
"At the same time we needed to make sure that channel growth was supported with the right mix of market and technical skills to properly understand our solutions and how they fit within the rapidly changing virtualisation and user environment management sectors.
"Ingram Micro has those skills and the track record to back them up."
