gen-i and the Whale

Internet integrator gen-i has expanded its product offering beyond its Citrix Systems focus, signing a reseller agreement with niche US Web security company Whale Communications.

While the agreement opens new markets in Australia and New Zealand for Whale, gen-i gains access to Whale's e-Gap product suite.

Whale manufactures appliances that enable businesses to rapidly deploy Web-based secure access to corporate network resources such as e-mail and other collaborative applications at anytime from any Web browser.

In addition to reselling the e-Gap product suite, gen-i will also provide services including integration, technical training and support. Gen-i joined Whale's partnership program after winning an e-business security project in an undisclosed Australian company.
