Citrix appeals to security channel
Enterprise vendor keen to trace Middle East resellers with expertise in security solutions
Enterprise software vendor Citrix has put a call out for resellers with expertise in the security field as it bids to increase the breadth of its offering in the Middle East.
The US-based giant is keen to sign up local partners that possess the right credentials to push its remote user connectivity and web application security technologies.
Resellers with experience of delivering security solutions in areas such as application security, network security, content filtering, and security architecture implementation and planning are all on Citrix’s target list, according to the company’s Middle East channel boss Fady Iskander.
“We are looking for security focused resellers which are capable of identifying potential security weaknesses in remote users connectivity or application level flows and actually developing and implementing solutions that address those weaknesses,” he revealed.
According to Iskander, changes in customer buying behaviour throughout the Middle East are creating opportunities for resellers to deploy their security integration expertise.
“As the application landscape is changing, more customers are depending on a consolidated architecture for their client-server applications or migrating into web-based applications to minimise remote users support,” he explained.
“In both scenarios, Citrix comes to ensure that application access is done in a seamless fashion for the user, secure architecture for management, and with total control of IT management.”
