Websense has assigned Datastor as its only local value added distributor.
The Auckland distributor will offer the company’s range of integrated web, data and email security products through its network of resellers.
Datastor CTO Gary Cullen says it sees Websense as a strategic fit in servicing the private and public sectors.
“The flexibility and functionality of the Websense product set will be a major sales advantage to our partners.”
Datastor is supporting Websense with outbound account managers, inside sales specialists, and business development managers. Engineers are also being assigned for pre and post sales technical support.
The company is now a Websense accredited training partner
“Websense offers a multi-tiered model where users can buy a hosted licence or locate a Websense appliance on site in order to protect employees from malware and other security threats,” says Cullen.
Websense New Zealand manager Chris Barton says Datastor offers a nationwide reach and established relationships with vendors such as Riverbed with whom it recently established a global partnership.
He adds that the partnership will be a win-win for both Websense and Datastor.
“It will allow our resellers and customers to optimise their potential for business in the midst of a variety of ongoing security challenges, whether it is the possibility of non-compliance, data leakage or security attacks.”
