ESET makes triple signing

Antivirus software vendor expands its market presence by appointing distribution partners in Libya, Sudan and Syria

The Middle East business development arm of antivirus software vendor ESET has inked deals with three distribution companies in the region.

The privately-held firm has awarded distribution rights to Anis Technology Centre in Libya, Kassoumeh Digital Solutions (KDS) in Syria and Franco Pinto in Sudan as part of a move to strengthen its regional coverage. Neo Neophytou, managing director at ESET Distribution Middle East, said: "The Middle East and Africa are very important markets for ESET. We are recruiting performance-based channel partners who will work closely with us to promote our solutions extensively in these markets."

Neophytou claims the vendor selected KDS, Anis Technology Centre and Franco Pinto on the basis of security expertise, track record and market knowledge. "They will be promoting ESET NOD32 solutions to the corporate segment and offer after-sales service and support to customers directly. ESET in turn will be providing them in-depth training and support on an ongoing basis," he explained.

ESET is keen to build on the latest appointments with further distribution partnerships. According to Neophytou, the aim is to have distributors in each market across the MENA region. "We want to ensure that the ESET NOD32 is available in all countries through a strong distribution and reseller network," he said.
