Gateworx named Egypt distributor for Eset
Dubai, July 3, 2014
Eset, a global leader in digital protection, has entered into a partnership with Gateworx, an IT distributor, for the distribution of its entire security solutions portfolio in the Egyptian IT market.
This includes Eset's endpoint, mobile, authentication, file system and gateway security products for businesses and its mobile and computer antivirus products for home users.
In recent years, Egypt has begun taking steps towards establishing legislation for ICT intellectual property rights as well as cybersecurity and e-terrorism laws.
“Egypt is key to the expansion of our footprint in North Africa. With malicious cyber activity rising in the country, organizations and users are understanding the need to protect their IT systems,” said Pradeesh VS, general manager at Eset Middle East.
“We have the solutions to meet these challenges and demands but in order to make a strong impact on the market, we also felt the need for a partner with technical expertise and a well established and enabled distribution network.”
As per the terms of the agreement, Gateworx will sell and promote Eset's entire range of security solution in the Egyptian market. The distributor will recruit, train and support new qualified resellers and systems integrators and will extend the support of its qualified sales and technical personnel to managing and enabling these partners. According to Gateworx, 'leveraging the skill sets and capabilities of existing partners' will also be key to the success of the partnership.
“Eset's 100 per cent channel driven model reassures us of the company's commitment to this partnership,” said Mohamed Haroon, Managing Director at Gateworx.
“They are a technology leader whose solutions perfectly complement and enhance our security portfolio. This will enable us to deepen penetration of the Egyptian IT market with cost-effective solutions that adhere to the highest quality standards.” – TradeArabia News Service
