February 17, 2016

Global Solutions Network FZCO will help Cryptzone to extend its reach as the company actively looks to recruit suitable System Integrators in the region

Boston US and London UK, [16 February] 2016: Cryptzone, a provider of dynamic, context-aware network, application and content security solutions, today unveiled its first middle east distributor partner – Global Solutions Network FZCO, the Solutions Distribution Arm of Global Distribution FZE. With this new partnership, Global will help Cryptzone identify, recruit and train system integrators (SI’s) who have the potential and expertise to drive its business forward in the region.

“Information Security organisations are struggling to protect their networks, while simultaneously meeting business user demands for convenient, flexible access. We can help simplify security and streamline user access” stated Alex Pearson, Cryptzone General Manager for EMEA and Asia Pacific. “In 2015 our focus was primarily developing and enhancing our core products so they continue to deliver truly innovative technology. Our customers can control access from outside and inside the perimeter – above and beyond VPNs and firewalls, protect data against loss and misuse, and easily demonstrate regulatory compliance. In 2016, we plan to expand into new markets and recognise this includes investing in developing our partner programme in new regions. We are delighted to kickstart these ambitious plans in the Middle East and would like to welcome Global to our growing family of distributor partners.”

Cryptzone's portfolio of solutions includes AppGate, offering dynamic, attribute-based controls that determine access across cloud, virtual and physical infrastructures; Security Sheriff a multiple award winning integrated classification, encryption and content protection solution for SharePoint, Office 365 and file shares; and Compliance Sheriff to provide a repeatable, practical and measurable solution for web compliance.

Speaking about the partnership, Mario M. Veljovic, Vice President of Solutions for Middle East and Africa, Global Solutions Network adds, “We pride ourselves on working with partners to develop strong relationships, an ethos shared by Cryptzone. Its solutions are very exciting and we know that our existing network of partners will tremendously benefit from being able to deploy Cryptzone for their customers.”
