iolo technologies signs distribution deal with Comguard
Comguard to distribute iolo's range of PC utilities across the Middle East
Comguard has signed an exclusive distribution deal for the Middle East region for iolo technologies' range of PC utilities.
The agreement covers all of iolo's English-language products, including System Mechanic PC tune up applications, DriveScrubber data erasing application, anti-virus and firewall solutions Search and Recover for recovery of deleted or damaged files.
The deal will cover Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, KSA, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Turkey, the UAE and Yemen.
Malika Bounaira, VP International Sales at iolo commented: "iolo's English products were previously available in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. With an explosive growth of internet usage in the region, however, there has been a demand for a more widespread availability of iolo's award-winning PC tune-up, security, file recovery, and data privacy software tools. More than 200 million people live in the Middle East currently, with nearly 90 percent of consumer households in the region containing computers, and nearly 25 percent of the entire population using the internet. English is widely taught and used throughout most Middle Eastern countries, especially among the middle and upper classes, and in Pakistan and Turkey alone nearly 30 million people speak the language."
"Internet usage in the region has skyrocketed more than 1,300% since 2000 and computers are now increasingly used for communication with family and friends," said Kraig Lane, director of international product management at iolo technologies. "Comguard's distribution of iolo's products will help English speaking users in the Middle East optimize their PCs and keep them running in peak condition, enabling them to use the internet safely and at quicker speeds."
