Vigil has been tasked with doubling Proofpoint’s UK channel sales in the first year and has been granted access to the vendor’s complete portfolio spanning email security, email archiving and data loss prevention (DLP) solutions.
Vigil joins incumbent Arrow ECS, which has been on board since Proofpoint moved to a two-tier channel model in September 2008.
Alex Teh, commercial director of Vigil, said: “Proofpoint’s technology fits really well into our portfolio in that it has technologies around compliance, DLP and archiving. These are all business drivers we as a company have focused on in the last 12 months to two years.”
Kenneth Yearwood, UK channel manager at Proofpoint, said: “Vigil was chosen as our UK distributor because of the company’s strong reputation as a security expert and its ability to create market demand, thanks largely to its exceptional expertise and knowledge in the area of compliance.”
