South African distribution agreement for DeviceLock

DeviceLock : 22 May, 2009  (Company News)
First Distribution of South Africa to act as distributor in the region for DeviceLock's range of endpoint protection technology
DeviceLock has announced a distribution agreement with First Distribution, a South African company specializing in the distribution of IT Hardware and Software.

Under the agreement First Distribution will distribute, market and support DeviceLock endpoint security software products throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. As a strategic member of the global DeviceLock channel partner community, First Distribution will receive significant partner benefits including access to the DeviceLock partner web-portal, product trainings, dedicated sales assistance, and comprehensive technical support. In addition, the companies will implement joint marketing programs in Sub-Saharan Africa.

"We are proud to have First Distribution - a company with unique expertise and a high level of dedication to promoting and selling IT security solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa - as our authorized distributor and strategic partner in this rapidly developing part of the African IT landscape," said Ashot Oganesyan, DeviceLock CTO and Founder. "Based on our partnership with First Distribution, we are looking forward to penetrating and expanding DeviceLock's presence and performance in the African market."

With its motto "Helping Our Customers to Help Their Customers", First Distribution continually strives for close and trusted relationships with their Business Partners to help them establish effective cooperation with vendors, ultimately achieving great pricing and product delivery for end customers. DeviceLock will benefit from the Johannesburg-based firm's strong local distribution channels and its expertise in creating awareness and demand in Southern Africa. First Distribution's comprehensive approach to the South African marketplace ¾ including sales, marketing and operations services ¾ provides a solid platform upon which foreign vendors can build their international businesses.

First Distribution is extremely selective regarding its trading partners, and as a result the company has established a first-class track record for stable and consistent product and service supply. Much of the success has come from an insistence on supporting only major brands in select product categories, which has engendered excellent relationships with vendors.

"Our partnership with DeviceLock will allow First Distribution to offer to our customers and sales channel in Southern Africa a leading endpoint device control and data leak prevention software solution that protects millions of computers in organisations of any size and industry around the globe," said Andrew Potgieter, Security Solutions Manager at First Distribution. "By adding DeviceLock to our growing suite of information security products, First Distribution will be able to deliver to South African corporate and government markets comprehensive protection against local data leaks at endpoint computers that result from insider mistakes, negligence and malfeasance."

Designed for Microsoft Windows operating systems and featuring comprehensive centralized management natively integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, DeviceLock software enables organizations to precisely control, log, shadow-copy, and audit end-user access to any type of computer ports or peripheral devices including local, network and virtual printers, as well as Windows Mobile and Palm OS based personal mobile devices. DeviceLock also integrates with leading encryption products from PGP, Lexar, and TrueCrypt, in order to protect data on removable storage devices. In addition, DeviceLock blocks operations of USB and PS/2 hardware keyloggers.
