NGFW vendor appoints second distributor for DACH region to further scale its business
Network security specialist Clavister has appointed ALLNET as its second distribution partner in the DACH region. The two companies have been successfully working together in Italy for several years and the partnership will now be expanded to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
With the agreement, Clavister will further develop its market presence across DACH and benefit from the established distributor’s partner network. Clavister is experiencing rapid growth in demand in the region and currently has 65 reseller partners in Germany, which it plans to increase to 100 over the next 18 months.
ALLNET supplies resellers and system vendors of all sizes, as well as carriers and ISPs. The portfolio of the Germering-based VAD is now supplemented by Clavister’s next-generation firewall solutions, including the new W50 appliance for data centers, service providers and enterprises. In addition, Clavister provides several flexible, scalable security gateways for head office and smaller branch deployments, enabling them to match customers’ current and future needs.
"ALLNET and Clavister are united by similar philosophies. We both place high emphasis on close partnership and collaboration with our resellers, "said Thomas Gross, Channel Account Manager at Clavister. "Working with ALLNET, we will be able to widen our reach in the DACH region. We have the advantage that many ALLNET employees have already had experiences with Clavister, and we look forward to a successful partnership."
Tjorben Teunissen, Director BU Network Solutions at ALLNET, adds: "Clavister’s next-generation firewalls fit perfectly into our portfolio because they meet both the needs of small- and medium-sized enterprises as well as the high demands of large corporations operating across multiple locations. Through our positioning in the DACH market, we know the needs of the market well and can deliver customised and efficient solutions using Clavister’s flexible firewall products."
Clavister’s solutions range entry level next-generation firewalls (NGFW) in desktop-sized packages, to Virtual Series Gateways that enable the highest levels of throughput, offering six nines (99.9999%) availability for optimum security in the most demanding data center and carrier network environments.
