Global distributor Ingram Micro has expanded its partnership with Sophos in Australia, a move that sees it take on the cyber security vendor’s full range of products and services in the local market.
In May, Ingram Micro struck a deal with Sophos that saw the distributor work to recruit new managed service providers (MSPs) to the Sophos MSP Connect Flex program.
Ingram Micro was already one of Sophos’ leading cloud partner distributors worldwide, however the initiative expanded Sophos’ reach across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
Now, in Australia at least, Ingram Micro has onboarded Sophos’ complete suite of software and hardware products and threat response services.
According to Ingram Micro Australia director of advanced solutions Brett Armstrong, the addition of Sophos’ complete product and services lineup to the distributor’s cyber security portfolio helps to advance the company’s efforts to provide its partners with the most complete set of solutions in the market.
“It’s our aim to provide unrivalled cyber security solutions and support to our resellers so they have all the tools they need to respond to the increasingly complex cyber security needs of their customers,” Armstrong said. “Adding Sophos to our portfolio helps us further this goal.
“The Sophos product and response services range covers the full spectrum of cyber security solutions for both business and home users with endpoint, network, email and mobile security, encryption and managed threat response.
“The combination of Sophos’ solutions and our aggregated security services and solutions – spanning consulting to delivery – will meet the needs and opportunities in the market,” he added.
From the perspective of John Donovan, Sophos Australia managing director, Ingram Micro represents a valuable distribution partner, with proven support programs for resellers and a drive to achieve results for the vendors it represents.
