- (1888PressRelease) February 15, 2012 - Manchester, UK- Stonesoft, an innovative provider of network security and business continuity solutions, today announces a new distribution agreement with ALTIMATE UK, one of the country's leading value-added distributors. The partnership will enable Stonesoft to sell its products to ALTIMATE's portfolio of resellers across the UK and Ireland.
As the threat posed by cybercriminals increasingly causes concern for the UK enterprise, there is a growing need to implement security solutions that are able to provide comprehensive protection. Stonesoft's products offer unified management of network security including Firewall, IPS and SSL VPN, available across Physical, Virtual and Software environments. Each solution offers a scalable answer to real-life challenges faced by enterprise customers.
Stonesoft's products also protect against Advanced Evasion Techniques (AETs), an attack vector where hackers engineer a piece of malware to avoid detection by security systems. Stonesoft is currently the only vendor able to protect against this threat.
The partnership forms a key part of Stonesoft's long-term strategy to deliver significant value to its customers, working alongside existing authorised resellers as well as driving membership to the Stonesoft Partner programme.
"We are excited about the prospect of strategically developing Stonesoft in the UK and Ireland. The product set will fit perfectly into both our existing portfolio and that of our partners. With our existing security expertise and strong channel community, we anticipate great success from our new partnership with Stonesoft." Says Hayley Roberts, commercial manager, ALTIMATE UK
