Saudi Zedan gets the nod
Antivirus software vendor ESET names new distribution partner in Saudi Arabia following increase in demand.
Antivirus software vendor ESET has appointed Zedan as its second distribution partner in the KSA. Zedan will promote and distribute ESET's NOD32 anti-virus software through its channel network in the Kingdom.
Neo Neophytou, managing director at ESET Distribution Middle East, said: "Zedan is a well known and trusted name in the IT industry in Saudi Arabia. With its established reputation, market knowledge and expertise, Zedan is an ideal partner who will help grow NOD32's market share and reach in Saudi Arabia."
Brian Hawley, general manager at Zedan added: "Apart from being the fastest growing anti-virus solution in the world, ESET's NOD32 leads the industry in terms of proactive detection and outperforms its competitors. It has a very small footprint needing minimal resource utilisation, taking up limited space on the user's computer and allowing for faster performance."
Under the terms of the agreement, Zedan will offer ESET's software to local resellers, retail outlets and directly to the end-user market. The Saudi company will also provide the first level of support to local partners.
Neophytou added: "Zedan currently has 85 listed resellers of IT products that would be natural outlets for NOD32. Zedan is potentially in a position to sell NOD32 to its 8,000 existing end-users of other Zedan IT products as well as to new users."
