Westcon Group has partnered with a niche distributor to bring a mobile security offering to market.
The distributor has joined forces with Oxfordshire-based Unique Distribution to launch a package of Nokia mobile devices alongside business applications.
Bernie Dodwell, European security manager at Westcon, said: “This is a bundled solution with the Nokia Eseries, IP client software, push email, device management, anti-virus and data encryption.”
Dodwell added that the first bundle will work on vendor Avaya’s platform, but other IP telephony platforms from vendors such as Cisco and Nortel will follow.
“Unique’s channel is totally different to ours,” he said. “We can now sell into its channel and vice-versa.”
David Hinc, head of managed services at Unique Distribution, said: “We could never have done this bundle without Westcon.”
