Cyberoam, which sells the identity-based unified threat management (UTM) range of appliances from Elitecore Technologies, has appointed First Distribution as a new distributor for South Africa.

Lynton Lubbe, channel manager at Cyberoam, comments: The ICT market in South Africa is all set to expand in a big way with many players investing in the region. In view of such huge potential, when we decided to solidify our position in Africa and expand beyond the established space, a partnership with First Distribution was the obvious choice.

“First Distribution is reputed for supplying premier, proven solutions and shares our approach and exacting standards towards network security.”

Charlie Murray, GM of First Distribution, adds: “We have in-depth experience in the distribution of IT security solutions. We offer more than just security products to our partners and customers. Inclusion of Cyberoam in our portfolio will help us to cater to the expanding market demands. Cyberoam appliances, with comprehensive network security features and their next generation identity based technology will give robust security to networks in the region.”
