Established value-added IT security distributor to support Bitdefender reseller channel strategy for virtualised security platform in the UK
Bitdefender, the award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, has signed a distribution deal with e92plus, a leading UK value-added distributor. The agreement supports growth and increased presence of Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE), the virtualisation anti-malware technology, in the UK channel. The new relationship between Bitdefender and e92plus follows the availability of SVE on the Amazon Web Services Marketplace and expansion of the Bitdefender Partner Advantage Network earlier in 2012.
Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments provides e92plus with a new and exciting proposition for resellers. The value-added distributor will be the Authoried Training Centre for Bitdefender’s enterprise solutions, offering resellers opportunities to be educated on SVE and its benefits over traditional endpoint solutions, together with additional technical and marketing services for lead generation. The partnership between Bitdefender and e92plus is based on the distributor’s track record of bringing world-class security vendors to the channel.
Mukesh Gupta, Managing Director at e92plus said,“e92plus is delighted to be working with Bitdefender, and bringing their innovative technology to our reseller partners. We have great experience in bringing unique technology to the market, and in particular Bitdefender virtualisation security offers VARs a great proposition to take to their customers. It also complements both our security and virtualisation solutions, and will help build a more complete, profitable package for resellers to take to market.”
Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments provides highly-scalable protection and efficiency for virtualised technology through its centralisation of anti-malware functions. This allows organisations to realise higher consolidation ratios and a reduction in operational costs that are associated with hardware equipment or energy consumption. As a result, SVE offers performance improvements throughout the virtualised infrastructure by saving resources on individual host systems.
In addition, SVE is hypervisor agnostic, helping customers realise the highest standard of security and therefore the most dependable systems. This supports major virtualisation technologies including Citrix Xen, Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware ESXi. It also protects file systems, processes and memory across virtualised servers and desktop PCs running Windows, Linux or Solaris operating systems.
“This new relationship between Bitdefender and e92plus comes during an important time, as organisations across the public and private sectors continue to evaluate and migrate to cloud computing and virtualisation technologies,” said Shaun Donaldson, Director of Strategic Alliances at Bitdefender. “Bitdefender Security for Virtualized Environments is designed to give organisations a sophisticated, cost-effective technology that overcomes productivity bottlenecks experienced with other cloud and virtualisation security solutions that follow a more traditional structure.”
