Internet security vendor Sonicwall has announced a slew of new reseller signings across the Middle East to develop the business for its one-stop shop security solutions outside of the UAE. Six new resellers have been signed following the vendor’s appearance at the Distree Digital Business Channel (DBC) Middle East and Africa (MEA) event in Fujeirah, UAE. “At DBC we had back-to-back meetings and our presentation seminars were all full. We have explored a lot of prospects from central and northern Africa and the Levant. So far we have confirmed six partners and are in discussions with a lot more potential partners,” said Shahnawaz Sheikh, regional sales manager MEA at Sonicwall. The new signings by Sonicwall represent a very diverse regional spread, with Galaxy Informatique of Algeria, Data Communications from Mauritius, Ardico and Globesoft, both based in Saudi Arabia and GEAP Technologies of the UAE all named as official Sonicwall resellers. The vendor is also in negotiations with Global Brands of Egypt, Jocom from Jordan, Marimba Computer in the UAE and Technology Star of Yemen and is confident of announcing more tie-ups soon. “An event like DBC benefits us as we get in-depth meetings, and you get to meet the right people. At events like Gitex you don’t know who is coming or who you will meet, but here you have a filtered and focused crowd, which should lead us to a better success rate,” said Manish Gulati, corporate business manager at Sonicwall master distributor Benz International. Sonicwall, an American company, has also recently announced two global acquisitions in the form of Lasso Logic and Enkoo. Lasso Logic adds data back up and restoration solutions and Enkoo provides secure remote access solutions to Sonicwall’s existing product portfolio.
