Arbor Networks extends WestconGroup partnership to Europe
Global expansion seek to leverage WestconGroup’s incubation program
Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT has announced that it has expanded its distribution agreement with WestconGroup, value-added global distributor of security, unified communication, network infrastructure, and data centre solutions.
The two companies previously had an agreement to carry Arbor’s DDoS solutions in Latin America and the Middle East. This expansion further extends Arbor’s reach into the European enterprise market.
Arbor seeks to leverage WestconGroup’s incubation program, an initiative designed to identify emerging technology vendors in high-growth areas and develop global distribution relationships for their products and services.
“Our experience working with WestconGroup in other regions has been fantastic. They know the customers, understand security and value what Arbor can bring to the table in terms of proven, market leading solutions,” said Jeremy Nichols, Arbor Networks global vice president of Channel Sales.
“Arbor has been pervasively deployed in the European service provider market for more than a decade. Expanding our partnership with WestconGroup, and leveraging the incubation program, will allow us to drive continued growth in the European enterprise security market for network visibility, DDoS protection and advanced threat detection solutions.”
“Arbor is primed to accelerate its growth at a time when solution providers and their customers need the ability to research, detect and mitigate network-based threats on a global scale,” said WestconGroup’s senior vice president Central Region & EMEA Security Solutions Practice Willem JH de Haan. “With joint investment from both companies, the incubation program provides them with the infrastructure and the support to make that happen.”
