CLEARWATER, Fla., Nov. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tech Data
Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced that it will offer Cisco’s
full portfolio of intelligent cyber security solutions to Tech Data’s
channel of solution providers in the United States, Canada and Latin
America. Tech Data will offer the industry’s most comprehensive
advanced threat protection portfolio, including Cisco’s latest network
security appliances and services from its Sourcefire acquisition, as
well as a broad set of enforcement and remediation options through the
Cisco(R) Solutions Group in the company’s Advanced Infrastructure
Solutions (AIS) division.
“As the Internet of Everything continues to create new opportunities
from networked connections among people, processes, data, and things,
we will continue to see a growing risk of security threats pertaining
to cloud computing, mobility and the data center,” said Angie Beltz,
vice president, Product Marketing, Cisco Solutions Group at Tech Data.
“Through Cisco’s next-generation intrusion prevention systems (NGIPS)
and advanced malware protection, we are offering a comprehensive array
of security solutions that provide an integrated threat defense for the
entire attack continuum–before, during, and after an attack–so end
users will have protection across the extended network.”
Cisco security offerings give the visibility and control necessary to
help protect an organization against targeted, zero-day and persistent
advanced malware threats, offering optimized protection for solution
providers and their clients. Providing businesses with a dynamic
approach to defending their network, Cisco utilizes awareness and
automation to give visibility and context while constantly adapting to
new threats, new vulnerabilities and everyday network changes.
“Now could not be a better time for channel partners to invest in
security and grow their practices,” said Andrew Sage, vice president of
Americas Distribution at Cisco. “Tech Data and Cisco together provide
the technology, training and services for solution providers to capture
the security market and drive new opportunities to increase profits.”
Tech Data will incorporate Cisco’s latest security solutions into its
go-to-market and enablement strategy through Momentum, providing
best-in-class services and support for partners at all levels. Partners
