WhiteGold gets iSheriff badge

WhiteGold Solutions has inked a distribution deal with enterprise security vendor, iSheriff.

The products cover enterprise threat management across email, firewalls and the Internet. In addition to offering the software to existing resellers, WhiteGold also stands to land business on the back of iSheriff deals with major hardware vendors.

"We'll be working with iSheriff partners like HP, Apple, IBM and Acer," WhiteGold managing director, Dominic Whitehand, said. "We will provide logistics and license supply."

iSheriff CTO, Oscar Marquez, said it had recently evaluated potential partners as it sought to expand distribution.

"We did an evaluation on local distributors and found WhiteGold to be the most adept," he said. "We ran into a lot of distributors who could install something, but were not convinced they could portray the value proposition to a customer." WhiteGold has poached Firewall Systems staffer, Sibella Sheedy, as iSheriff account manager.
