Tech Data Middle East has beefed up its bulging security software portfolio with the addition of Trend Micro to its vendor ranks. With distribution agreements already in place with Computer Associates and Symantec, the decision to appoint Trend Micro reflects rising demand for security software from the regional channel. “Customers will benefit from our combined support and understanding of their business needs, while our partners can look forward to some aggressive product bundling, channel recruitment and knowledge transfer and training,” said Eliot Shepherd, marketing director at Tech Data Middle East. “The combined resources of Trend Micro and Tech Data – two international names with a strong track record in the field of information technology – provide a formidable team in the war against viruses and internet malware,” said Justin Doo, managing director at Trend Micro Middle East and Africa. “Home users are increasingly at risk from a variety of threats, including phishing, greyware, and spam that contains malicious viruses, so the support of Tech Data, with their strong understanding of the consumer technology market, will enable us to take enterprise-standard protection into the homes of the Middle East,” added Doo. The two companies reckon that resellers across the region will see immediate benefits from the distribution agreement. Trend Micro’s PC-cillin 2005 product will be officially launched in the region for the first time through Tech Data.
