“The distribution agreement with FVC gives us access to their expertise, strong presence and reseller network across the Middle East and North Africa.” stated Gus Malezis, VP worldwide sales and support at nCircle. “We develop innovative business security and compliance solutions that provide strong revenue potential for our partners.”
