Tech Data U.S. Enhances Network Security Offering
CLEARWATER, FL -- Tech Data Corporation has continued to expand its networking security product offering by announcing it will distribute McAfee IntruShield Network Intrusion Prevention and Foundstone Enterprise Vulnerability Management solutions. These latest additions enable resellers to include McAfee's enterprise-class threat management and network and asset-protection capabilities as part of their own security services.
"IT resellers specializing in network security play a crucial role ensuring businesses of all sizes protect their information assets by managing any number of costly threats including malware, worms, spyware and denial-of-services attacks," said Tech Data Senior Vice President, U.S. Marketing Bob O'Malley. "By leveraging McAfee's IntruShield and Foundstone solutions, resellers can more profitably deliver comprehensive network security services that provide constant threat management. This enables resellers to focus resources on growing their business instead of spending valuable time at a customer site battling the day's latest security threat."
The McAfee IntruShield and Foundstone solutions are designed to meet the network security needs of companies ranging from midsize businesses to large enterprises, with application across vertical markets. The IntruShield family of IPS appliances proactively protects critical network infrastructure by blocking attacks and intrusion attempts. With the Foundstone products, resellers can generate a comprehensive risk assessment to identify and prioritize business-critical assets requiring protection and correlate breaking threats. Tech Data also will offer Foundstone training, an in-depth course that educates resellers on the latest security practices and hacker tactics.
Through McAfee integration, resellers can provide their customers with multilayered security solutions leveraging both the IntruShield and Foundstone lines for enhanced network protection. IntruShield is the industry's first Risk-Aware IPS, which provides the ability to identify and block the most relevant threats and attacks by importing and correlating risk-assessment information from McAfee Foundstone.
These solutions are available only to authorized McAfee SecurityAlliance resellers. Tech Data and McAfee will help resellers obtain any necessary certifications to sell the IntruShield and Foundstone product lines. The products also will be featured in Tech Data's TDSolutions Center, a 4,500-square-foot proof-of-concept lab showcasing a wide array of IT solutions including networking, VOIP, security, document management, storage and video conferencing.
Tech Data supports McAfee resellers with a dedicated team of product specialists and technical resources. To learn more, call 800-201-0506, send an e-mail to email@example.com or visit techdata.com.
