Westcon-Comstor, a specialised distributor of security, collaboration, networking and data centre solutions, will help Bitglass to establish its local channel business, create market momentum and build brand awareness.
“We’re very pleased to announce this new partnership with Westcon-Comstor, said Brendon Thwaites, director of Channels Asia Pacific and Japan, Bitglass.
“We are a 100% channel centric business and entirely committed to building strong partner relationships in New Zealand. For many partners, Westcon-Comstor is already a known quantity so that provides us with an excellent platform to launch from.
“Since Bitglass is delivered as SaaS and is an agentless CASB solution we can deploy rapidly and return value almost immediately. Operationally, there are no extra resourcing demands or add-on costs related to hardware and endpoint managementand only minimal user training required.”
“Westcon-Comstor is excited to be the sole distributor for Bitglass in New Zealand. As a value add distributor, we’re committed to providing our customers with the latest technology in security,” said Simon Goode, sales and marketing director, Westcon-Comstor.
“With the widespread adoption of BYOD and increased utilisation of cloud applications like Office 365 and G Suite in New Zealand, unmanaged devices are leaving organisations particularly vulnerable.
“While there are numerous security solutions available in the market, Bitglass is unique in that it is an agentless CASB solution, allowing fast and scalable deployment, and is specifically designed for real time protection with instant blocking, essential for today’s ever evolving threat landscape.”
