Distribution Central appointed sole Clearswift distie

ICT distributor Distribution Central has teamed up with Clearswift to offer its range of web and email appliances.

The products will be distributed through Distribution Central's data security business unit, Firewall Systems.

The company will offer Clearswift’s products and its Catalyst partner programme to resellers along with a number of support services including pre-sales technical support, channel marketing and education programmes.

The local partnership follows international moves by Clearswift to improve its distribution network.

Clearswift Asia Pacific general manager Peter Croft says the company launched its Catalyst partner programme in early July.

“We recognised that a distributor would help us capitalise on the opportunities we have identified in the market. Distribution Central has a great brand, and with specialist data security experience in Firewall Systems, we’re firmly anticipating considerable success in expanding the Clearswift footprint through this appointment.

Distribution Central country manager Trevor Holland says end users are becoming more mobile so strong data and security products are essential.

“Clearswift’s portfolio complements our existing data security solutions and integrates with the data networking, storage and other products we offer.”
