WALLIX, a French publisher of cybersecurity software and expert in Identity and Access Security solutions, has unveiled the signature of an agreement with infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS.
This agreement will increase the reach of WALLIX solutions in the United States, offering more US companies its expertise in identity and access security. Arrow aggregates world’s leading technologies and services to enable its global IT channel ecosystem. Arrow’s North American footprint makes it ideal to support WALLIX clients on large-scale projects.
Companies need to be more agile and flexible, enabling external access to IT infrastructure securely. Remote connections and telecommuting have become standard, and thus organisations’ IT systems as well as industrial networks are open by necessity, and hyper solicited. Organisations are therefore faced with the dual challenge of increasing remote access while ensuring that it is more secure, in order to maintain business continuity, protect data, and comply with IT risk management regulations. Through this agreement with Arrow, WALLIX provides enterprises with a portfolio of easy-to-implement solutions to regain control of IT access on desktops, servers, cloud applications, and industrial networks.
Arrow is now part of the WALLIX Business Partner Program. Program participants benefit from a rich set of tools empowering them to increase their knowledge of WALLIX solutions (WALLIX Academy, document library, Partner Portal), to maximise their visibility through joint marketing activities, and to receive 24/7 support. The Business Partner Program is a pillar of WALLIX’s international development, representing 739 certified individuals and 1300 customers, all over the world.
“Our partner-based sales system is one of the pillars of our global strategy. Signing a distribution agreement with Arrow ECS is an important step to increasing availability of our cybersecurity solutions. This joint commitment also marks the acceleration of WALLIX’s development on the North American continent”, comments Didier Lesteven, EVP of Sales & Marketing Operations at WALLIX.
“Cyber-attacks are a major risk to business continuity. IT directors and security managers need to regain control of IT access wherever they are, in an increasingly digital context. With an interconnected ecosystem, corporate IT networks can’t risk interruption. This agreement with Arrow, one of the major value-added distributors in the American market, is designed to expand WALLIX’ sales network in the United States to reach more users and customers who have significant needs for ready-to-implement cybersecurity solutions to protect their access and identities. This agreement is a milestone in WALLIX’s international development”, adds Jean-Noël de Galzain, founder and CEO of WALLIX.
