Security solutions vendor SonicWall has expanded its distribution agreement with Redington Gulf to cover the entire Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The two companies previously signed a distribution contract in June 2006 covering just Saudi Arabia. The move marks another step forward for Redington as it looks to develop its value-add credentials and enter new product arenas such as networking. Redington will hold distribution rights for SonicWall’s entire product portfolio including security appliances, network security products, secure remote access, web and e-mail security, continuous data protection and policy and management solutions across the entire MENA region. “The escalating instances of security bypass, data hacking and denial-of-service attacks are just a few reasons that have made securing the network a crucial task for businesses. In such a scenario, SonicWall’s network security appliances provide affordable, flexible, and integrated security solutions and services in order to root out security threats,” said Raj Shankar, director at Redington Gulf. “Redington Gulf will work at enhancing SonicWall’s reach and awareness across the Middle East and Africa through its service network that covers more than 60 locations, including 12 owned service centres and 48 Redington authorised service providers,” continued Shankar. Commenting on SonicWall’s support and services initiative in the region, Shahnawaz Sheikh, MEA regional sales manager, explained: “There are two different types of support available. The first option is to seek support from SonicWall certified engineers, who are available with every SonicWall Silver and Gold partner and covered by certified engineers at distributors for level-2 support.” “The second option is to avail 8x5 and 24x7 support, which overlaps with option 1 but the enhancements are that customers get 8x5 or 24x7 Toll Free support answered directly by SonicWall’s support engineers,” he concluded.
