Cyberoam appoints three disties for NetGenie
Bulwark, Sevengate and Emitac Qatar to distribute NetGenie appliance array
Cyberoam, a global provider of network security appliances, has named Bulwark, Emitac Qatar and Sevengate as its distributors for NetGenie home and SoHo Wi-Fi appliances range in the Middle East region.
In terms of the agreement, Bulwark will be overseeing distribution for the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait, while Sevengate and Emitac will cover Levant and Qatar respectively.
According to the vendor, Bulwark, Emitac Qatar and Sevengate are also existing distributors for Cyberoam's network security appliances in the region. The company said the three distyributors will push NetGenie Wi-Fi appliances through their network of resellers.
Ravinder Janotra, regional sales sanager, Middle East at Cyberoam, said NetGenie was conceptualised based on the company's global consumer survey that presented a strong need for a product among home and small office Internet users.
Janotra added that the appliance integrates online security, Wi-Fi security, advanced Internet access controls and 3G-ready support in a single application that saves buying and maintenance costs of separate solutions for end users.
Deepak Motwani of Bulwark, said: "We are delighted to add Cyberoam's NetGenie home and SoHoWi-Fi appliances to our extensive range of security offerings. This is a time when parents are beleaguered with concerns on the security and time management of their children and family on the Internet."
Motwani added that small offices with limited resources struggle to grow their businesses amidst growing cyber attacks and wasteful Internet usages by employees. "NetGenie VDSL2/ADSL2+ appliances address the need for security and productive Internet usage both for home and small offices. NetGenie offers need based access levels to employees and children to various sites and applications like social sites, entertainment portals, instant messengers, and bit torrent, across an entire range of devices," he said.
Jafar Ahmad of Sevengate explained that: "The advanced and comprehensive features of NetGenie for both home and SoHo, brings preconfigured security against unauthorised access and misuse of Wi-Fi network. For office users the inbuilt VPN helps connect to central offices at remote locations with the same security levels that a big business enjoys."
Emitac Qatar's Benish Peter Jacob added that today there are more connected devices than human beings. "Gone are the days when only big businesses needed security. Home users and small business seek an easy solution to be secure and productive online. NetGenie is a solution that is not only easy to use, but fulfils all their needs comprehensively," he said.
