Installation and consultancy group at AN4.

AN4 Group : 05 July, 2007  (Company News)
AN4 Group now includes division for security products to offer installation and consultancy for corporate IT security.
AN4 Group has announced the launch of a new security division aimed at delivering tailored security solutions for enterprise customers across all sectors. AN4 will offer products and services from over 20 security focused vendors covering gateway security, content inspection and encryption combined with a set of managed services including secure email, network monitoring and web content screening.

"For a number of years, the portion of our business directly generated from security has grown rapidly and now accounts for nearly 12% of our turnover," comments Kristian Connor, Sales Director for AN4 Group, "In response, we have decided to formalise this part of our company with a new division dedicated to security and to do this we have strengthened our accreditation across the board and reorganised our internal teams to create strong sets of knowledge around key security fundamentals."

As part of this process, AN4 has completed technical training and accreditation with over 20 security product sets from leading suppliers including Secure Computing, RSA, F5, Astaro, Juniper Networks, Presence Networks and BeCrypt. The company has also set up a security portal which aggregates product information from multiple vendors and helps simplify requests from prospective customers for evaluation units and site licences.

"We have invested in a large pool of loan units and licences to allow prospective customers to evaluate products onsite and we will be increasing the number of vendors on the portal over the coming months." Connor adds.

AN4 Group will also be offering a branded secure email service in partnership with a major UK service provider and a Network and Security Surveillance platform in partnership with SecureActive which will be available either as a local installation or as an AN4 managed service.

"Our debut at InfoSec this year was a real eye opener," comments Connor, "Most of the systems integrators tend to promote only one product set based around the offerings of one of the big security vendors but our approach is to broaden our portfolio and let the customer decide which products they want and where - our task is to advise, sell, integrate and support"

As part of its strategy for its new Security Division - AN4 Group has actively partnered with at least two and in most cases three different product vendors in each security area. This diversity will allow it to customise a solution based on the preference of the client without compromise.

Each AN4 client will now have a security manager who will co-ordinate with the existing account manager to keep clients informed about security products, perform security audits and help deliver managed services. AN4 Group have offered security product and services for over 18 years and have consistently been amongst the first pioneers to deliver breakthrough new security products from suppliers such as nCipher and BeCrypt.

The AN4 Security Division will officially launch on 1 st of July and will coincide with a telemarketing and mail shot campaign to existing and prospective clients.
