UTM Distribution Agreement between gateProtect and Bechtle

GateProtect : 17 February, 2010  (Company News)
German company signs strategic agreement to supply high end Unified Threat Management appliances into the European market
gateProtect has signed a distribution agreement with Bechtle. The IT service provider is now a Platinum Partner and will provide sales and customer support services for gateProtect's Unified Threat Management solutions throughout Europe. With this agreement, gateProtect has completed another phase of its partnership strategy and its international expansion. gateProtect is extending the availability of its solutions in other countries via channel partners and selected distributors. The company currently has 550 resellers and is actively working to increase its international network.

The focus of the channel partnership with Bechtle is on gateProtect's Unified Threat Management appliances, which have been awarded top rankings in several independent tests and are the only products of their kind on the market with the easy to use eGUI® interface.

"Expanding into other European countries is a key part of our growth plans," says Dennis Monner, CEO of gateprotect. "We're seeing very strong demand for our UTM appliances almost everywhere now. Along with Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Bechtle has a presence in eight additional central European countries, so this partnership will enable us to grow even faster and expand our market share in these areas. We're mainly targeting larger midsized companies who need a strong IT service provider across multiple regions. This is why we're very pleased to have excellent access to these companies through Bechtle and to have gained a partner of unusually high repute who is known and trusted by the midmarket."

According to Eckhard Zuber, Product Manager at Bechtle, the partnership will enable the company to extend its Bechtle Security Portfolio with a solution for ergonomic network protection. He comments: "With gateProtect's Unified Threat Management appliances, we'll be able to offer our customers an integrated security solution that helps them reduce the increasing complexity of safeguarding their corporate networks." Bechtle provides a comprehensive range of services and products for IT infrastructures. These span IT strategy consulting, hardware and software products, project planning and execution, system integration, maintenance and training as well as the complete management of all IT operations. Bechtle AG currently has over 56,000 customers, mainly midsized companies, and has solid contacts as well as many years' experience with this sector. Bechtle has trading companies in eleven European countries. All gateProtect products will be available from Bechtle's system house and e-commerce divisions.

At this year's CeBIT, gateProtect will give further details of its partnership with Bechtle AG during its press conference on 2 March 2010 from 9.00am to 10.00am in Room 112 of the Convention Centre. gateProtect is exhibiting at CeBIT on Stand B37 in Hall 11.
