This gives suppliers and resellers of value add IT services to help sell products to customers.
Arrow will distribute a range of Trend Micro offerings whether for email security or server protection including OfficeScan, Mobile Security, and Deep Security. The last includes anti-malware, verifying web sites, firewall, intrustion prevention, integrity monitoring, log inspection and virtual patching.
Eric Taillard, VP in charge of cloud services at Arrow ECS said that customer demand for cloud security services remains high. “It is an essential building block for value added resellers,” he said.
Meanwhile, Martina Mulas, senior manager in charge of SMB sales and marketing at Trend, said that the distribution agreement will help it “step up” its relationships with MSP resellers. Last year it introduced its MSP programme and partners are moving to managed services and pay as you go buying.
