Tecksel branches out with SonicWALL

Tecksel has added security to its networking inventory, signing a distribution agreement with firewall and VPN vendor SonicWALL.

Under the terms of the agreement, the SME specialist networking distributor will supply resellers with the full range of SonicWALL products, ranging from its entry-level firewalls up to enterprise-class SSL (secure socket layer) accelerators and VPN appliances. Tecksel will also distribute SonicWALL's security software, which includes policy management, Web content filtering, user authentication, vulnerability scanning and enforced antivirus applications.

Phil Tarbox, Tecksel Australia's NSW sales manager, said the move into security was the next logical step for the distributor, which started 10 years ago selling modems before moving into the networking and communications markets.

Tecksel joins Dovetail Distribution and LAN Systems (Westcon) as a distributor of SonicWALL.
