For the first time ever, partners for communications-equipment distributor Westcon Group may sell cybersecurity provider ArcSights Enterprise Threat and Risk Management Platform (ETRM), and other products, in North America.
That news comes as Westcon and ArcSight also have expanded their European distribution agreements to include Finland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The companies already worked together in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Luxembourg.
Ideal customers for the ArcSight ETRM include enterprises and government agencies.
With the rapid proliferation of attacks from the outside and data breaches from the inside occurring daily on a global scale, its extremely important for companies to have a comprehensive IT security strategy in place,” said Dean Douglas, president and CEO of Westcon Group, in a prepared statement. The global expansion of the ArcSight relationship just makes sense.”
Westcon said on Wednesday that ArcSight products, including the new ArcSight Logger 5.0, will be available immediately to channel partners.
ArcSight is owned by HP. Westcons channel partners include value-added resellers, systems integrators and service providers.
