Etienne Greeff, director at MIS, said virtualisation is now one of the VAR’s core themes.
“We are a big player in virtualisation because a lot of our customers are consolidating firewalls and datacentres. We see Sourcefire as one of the strongest virtualisation players, especially when coupled with Crossbeam hardware,” he said.
Anthony Perridge, EMEA channel director at Sourcefire, said: “The goal of the Sourcefire channel programme is to build strategic relationships with a select number of technically focused security partners, and MIS fits the bill perfectly.”
