AlgoSec Appoints Arrow as UK Distributor

Network security policy management vendor strengthens and extends channel reach with significant appointment; plans further growth in UK partner base in 2013

April 16, 2013



London, UKAlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, has appointed Arrow ECS as its UK distributor.  This key strategic move will rapidly accelerate adoption of AlgoSec’s solutions for security policy management that delivers both tighter security and improved business agility.

With the appointment of Arrow ECS, AlgoSec is moving to a full two-tier channel model in the UK for the first time, and also plans to double its number of Gold reseller partners in 2013.

Paul Clark, AlgoSec’s Regional Director for UK, Ireland, South Africa & the Middle East said:  “From a standing start in 2010, we’ve enjoyed roughly 300% growth in the UK, thanks to our channel, and by partnering with Arrow ECS we expect to further accelerate that growth.  Its expertise in delivering solutions, value-added professional services and first-line support were key to our decision, and will be critical in helping us to fulfil market demand and uncover new opportunities.

“This appointment gives our channel reach a massive boost, as Arrow ECS has the security know-how and established VAR relationships to map our solutions to customer requirements.  Not just at enterprise level, but also with smaller and mid-sized end-user organisations, who are struggling to manage security on their increasingly complex networks.”

Nick Bannister, divisional director of security for Arrow ECS, said:  “We’re seeing increasing demand from partners and customers who want to automate security policy management and enhance protection of systems and data – especially across mixed estates using products from multiple vendors.  AlgoSec’s solutions directly address this need, helping to simplify management of a wide range of security devices and technologies, cutting complexity and increasing operational efficiency.  They also open up a range of managed service options, making Algosec a valuable addition to our overall security offering.  Its solutions can be easily added into our partner portfolios and give our partners a strong upselling opportunity, and the ability to differentiate themselves, particularly in the Firewall market.”

In February this year, AlgoSec announced the latest version of the AlgoSec Security Management Suite, which combines AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer, AlgoSec FireFlow and AlgoSec BusinessFlow to streamline firewall operations and change management, ensure compliance and application availability, and deliver a tighter security policy that offers better protection against cyber-attacks.

The new version features AlgoSec BusinessFlow as an integral part of the suite, delivering innovative, application-centric security policy management that boosts business agility, enabling network teams to understand the impact of any network changes on the availability of critical applications and security policy management.  Additional enhancements to the Security Management Suite include extended device support, deeper integration capabilities, enhanced reporting and performance and IPv6 support.
