We are happy to announce that WebSpy has recently appointed Avnet Technology Solutions as a key distributor for the Netherlands.
Avnet Technology Solutions is a value-added distributor of computer products, software and services. Within the Networking and Security segment Avnet specializes in firewall solutions, perimeter security, virtual private networking (VPN), content security, antivirus and URL filtering. Avnet’s major Network and Security vendors include Juniper Networks, RSA, Check Point and Aladdin.
Avnet and WebSpy have been formulating this partnership for the past months. The interest originated after Avnet identified an increasing demand for advanced reporting from local organizations and resellers. WebSpy has had presence in the Netherlands for many years but are very excited about working with Avnet. We are confident that working with a distributor with solid expertise in the Dutch IT security market and established relationships with local resellers will enable us to grow and efficiently support the local market.
We’ve found that an increasing number of organizations across the Netherlands require more than the basic reporting provided by their security solutions. WebSpy provides a natural fit within Avnet’s product portfolio as the solutions complement, rather than compete, with their existing vendors. Not only will WebSpy add value to Avnet’s product portfolio but, as a vendor neutral log file analyzer, it will also add value to Avnet’s resellers’ extended portfolios and naturally the end-users network and security infrastructure.
In addition to complementing a large number of Avnet’s existing blocking and filtering solutions, the partnership has also given us incentive and resources to add support to new log file formats. We recently added support for the Juniper SA series and have further interesting additions in the pipeline. You’ll be able to find out more about Juniper SA support in upcoming blog from our development team.
We are happy to have Avnet Technology Solutions on board and look forward to our joint efforts in improving security and reporting capabilities in the Netherlands. The 3-4 of November 2010 WebSpy will join Avnet at the Infosecurity tradeshow in Utrecht, Netherlands.
