Global network security vendors WatchGuard Technologies has appointed inTechnology Distribution as a new distributor for its range of Wi-Fi products in the Australian market.

WatchGuard says the strategic distribution agreement will support its strategy to boost the adoption of its secure suite of Wi-Fi products which organisations can use to build Trusted Wireless Environments that are “fast, easy to manage and secure and deliver market-leading performance, scalable management and verified, comprehensive security”.

It says InTechnology Distribution has more than 20 years’ experience in Wi-Fi technology and works with thousands of reseller partners driving business opportunities.

“We are very excited to be working with a Wi-Fi vendor that is focused on and puts an emphasis on the security of their client's network,” said Mark Winter, chief executive of inTechnology Distribution in the asia Pacific.

“With our own focus on Wi-Fi and security, WatchGuard’s secure Wi-Fi portfolio was a natural fit for us and our partners. Partners now have access to sell Wi-Fi and security in a single solution which is unique in the industry.”

WatchGuard says InTechnology Distribution will now work with it to recruit partners who have traditionally been Wi-Fi specialists and “now want to seize the market opportunity and provide customers with a secure Wi-Fi portfolio product set”.

According to WatchGuard, Wi-Fi networks have always served as easy prey for cyber criminals looking to steal valuable information, “primarily because vendors and businesses have made the mistake of looking at Wi-Fi security capabilities as an added benefit, rather than a primary feature”.

“At the same time, more and more devices are leveraging Wi-Fi connectivity and this trend isn’t expected to slow down any time soon.

“WatchGuard’s Wi-Fi solutions protect customers with verified, comprehensive security that automatically detects and prevents the six known Wi-Fi threat categories, while enjoying the benefits of Wi-Fi networks with market-leading performance and scalable management,” WatchGuard says.

Mark Sinclair, Regional Director – Australia and New Zealand, WatchGuard Technologies, said, “inTechnology Distribution is a perfect partner for WatchGuard as a focused secure Wi-Fi solutions distributor in Australia.

“Their skills, experience and market knowledge will assist to recruit more Wi-Fi specialist partners that have long wanted to add a secure Wi-Fi offering to their portfolio. Indeed, their existing partner base is a perfect fit in terms of its industry reach and sheer potential to add secure Wi-Fi.”
