Partner Watch, April 24

SurfControl partners with En Pointe in a global VAR agreement.

SurfControl today announced a Value Added Reseller (VAR) partnership with Los Angeles-based En Pointe Technologies Inc., a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, to globally distribute SurfControl’s Internet security products alongside En Pointe’s own security offerings.

"The market is saturated with expensive products that offer only limited protection against Internet threats. SurfControl directly addresses these threats through a bundled, innovative, cost-effective solution," said Ali Din, marketing director, En Pointe Information Security Services. "As our primary objective is to provide the highest quality and best value in business solutions and services, we are exceptionally pleased to be able to offer SurfControl's award-winning Internet protection suite to our commercial, government and education customers."

"As Internet threats continue to grow in both sophistication and malicious intent there is a clear need for robust, scalable and customizable preventative threat solutions," said David Harris, vice president of Worldwide Channel at SurfControl. "Leveraging En Pointe's expertise and established customer base, SurfControl can continue to provide best-of-class technology to all sized organizations, meeting both their security and compliance needs. We're confident that our partnership with En Pointe creates a win for both companies, our clients and the industry in general."
