We’re looking forward to taking the proposition to market and helping our partners capitalise on the rapidly evolving opportunities the hybrid workplace offers, with all the speed, innovation and support they have come to expect from Westcoast’s Technology Solutions team”, comments Alex Tatham, founder and CEO at Westcoast.


Helen Speak, Aruba Channel Director, UKI at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company adds: “Westcoast has been a strong partner of Aruba since 2015, and we’re delighted to be extending their contract to distribute our SD-Wan offerings. As the IT industry’s appetite for SD-Wan continues to rise, we’re pleased to have Westcoast on board to support this growing market.
