Cloud DistributionValue added distributor Cloud Distribution said it has signed a deal with Check Point Software to sell its products.

The deal means Cloud Distribution will expand Check Point’s market and create relationships with mobile security partners and creating a relationship with existing Check Point customers.

Swivel hires reseller channel man

truckAnup Vora has been appointed reseller channel manager by Swivel Secure.

Last year, Swivel moved to a single tier channel way of selling and the company said this appointment is its next stage in its reseller programme.

Swivel has authentication products and the company believes resellers can include its offerings as part of their enterprise portolios.

Vora said that demand for authentication in the enterprises has never been higher. “Resellers should be bundling security as standard,” he said. “Multi-factor authentication shouldn’t be overlooked.”  It’s an incremental revenue stream for resellers, he added.

Vora has had years of experience in building channels including jobs at SMS Passcode and Check Point Software.
