IT group Avajang has been unveiled as the latest distributor to forge an alliance with Cyberoam as the unified threat management (UTM) vendor continues to aggressively build out its Middle East partner network. Avajang will carry and promote Cyberoam’s range of security appliances in Iran. Cyberoam expects to sell more than US$1m worth of security appliances in the Middle East this year and believes the appointment of Avajang will give it the impetus it needs to meet that target. “At Cyberoam we are focusing on expanding exponentially in the international internet security market,” commented Harish Chib, VP new business development at Cyberoam. “The partnership with Avajang System is an important step towards this goal. With this partnership Cyberoam shall attain an important share in Iran, which is emerging as a growing market for Internet security appliances,” he added. Avajang System, which is part of the 300-strong Avajang ICT Group, provides a host of services to its clients, including security solutions, IT consultancy, IT training and ID automation amidst other services. Mohammad Moabsseri, director for ICT security at Avajang, said: “Avajang System and the Avajang ICT group per se, has been a proud distributor of IT related services and solutions from reputed companies. Our partnership with Cyberoam is based on its strong and unique Identity-based UTM appliances which offer comprehensive security to corporations while addressing emerging threats.” The appointment of Avajang caps a hectic period of partner recruitment for Cyberoam’s business in the Middle East. Inside the past six months it has also signed GateWorx in Egypt and VisionTech, Bulwark Technologies and Latitude Systems in the UAE. Chib recently told Channel Middle East that Cyberoam — part of Elitecore Technologies — will continue to add more partners to its ranks where it makes sense: “Cyberoam is expanding its partner base to increase the reach, but at the same time we will make sure that we don’t flood the market with partners. We are including renowned companies in our partner list to increase the customer confidence on the product,” he added.
