Tripwire has expanded its OverDrive partner programme in the UK and Ireland as it looks to drive growth in the EMEA region.
The security vendor has added eight preferred-level resellers, picked because of their vertical industry expertise and geographic coverage.
All eight will be supported by distribution partner Computerlinks. According to Tripwire, benefits of the programme include attractive margins, sales and marketing support and training.
Mark Bradley, EMEA vice president of Tripwire, said: “Our channel partners are absolutely critical to our growth strategy and we can offer a compelling business proposition.”
Nick Garlick, managing director of Nebulas, said he was pleased to be joining the programme and was impressed with the level of commitment. “The rapid rise of attacks on sensitive data in the UK today demands companies have an effective IT security and compliance strategy in place,” he said.
Alastair Broom, solutions director at Integralis, added: “Our association with Tripwire enables us to offer IT security and compliance, enabling our customers to remove complexity and reduce risk.”
Similarly, Duncan Bulley, finance director at recently formed VAR Apsu, said: “A number of things impressed us when we reviewed Tripwire as a potential partner, not least the breadth and depth of its solution offerings.”
