Alstom expands its security appliance offering

IT distributor Alstom Information Technology has taken another step into the security appliance space this week, announcing its appointment as the exclusive distributor of Resilience's high-end security appliances.

Resilience manufactures enterprise-level security appliances that come pre-installed with Check Point software. Greg Newham, general manager of Alstom IT, said the product is a good fit for Alstom, which is placing increasing focus on security products.

“The technology in these appliances is exceptional – they have features and performance well ahead of the competition,” he said. “They are not for everyone, but they fit a gap in our product set.”

The cost of the Resilience products starts at around $15,000 with the Check Point software included, but scales to considerably higher price and performance, Newham said.

It is the second distribution agreement Alstom IT has signed with a security appliance vendor this month, following its appointment as a distributor of NetScreen products.
