NTT has started the transition of its UK sales staff from its NTT Security brand to Dimension Data.
Earlier this year parent company NTT formed a new security entity by bringing together NTT Com Security (formerly Integralis), Solutionary and Earthwave.
NTT Security said when announcing the new brand that the timing of the reshuffle would differ depending on the region, and that no employees were expected to lose their jobs.
Peter Cunningham, senior vice president northern Europe at NTT Security, said in a statement to CRN: "As outlined in our press release from 6 June, our services will be taken to market globally, and client engagement will be managed by the NTT operating companies Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT Data.
"We are in the process of executing on this, which does not require any employee to reapply for their roles.
"We are engaged with employee representatives to undertake any consultation appropriate as part of that activity. NTT Security continues to be committed to supporting our employees."
Cunningham's statement came after sources told CRN that sales staff at NTT security were being asked to interview for their roles.
One source, who claimed to have spoken to an NTT Security employee yesterday, said: "Every salesperson has been told that they will have to interview for their job and that there will not be enough jobs for all of them.
"While there may not be enough jobs for everyone at DD [Dimension Data], it may not be that all the people at DD actually want them either.
"The person I spoke to yesterday said that even if they got the job they were applying for, they didn't think they'd stick around long. They didn't fancy being in a large corporate SI compared with a smaller, Integralis type."
