Progress Distribution has inked a UK deal with enterprise security firm Trusted Knight, extending its reach into organisations where it claims the traditional detect-and-remove strategies of anti-virus are no longer a viable approach.
Trusted Knight's product line includes the Protector EndPoint Protection platform - an agent-based technology with a cloud-based management console, for which it charges per end-point in a software-as-a-service model; and its Cloud-DMZ product which protects customers' websites and web applications by creating a replica of the original site.
"We are excited to be working with Progress Distribution to help us grow our UK Partner Select Channel Program," said Brooks Wallace, managing director of Trusted Knight.
"We remain a channel-centric vendor in the UK and will be promoting Trusted Knight's full product suite to the UK market through Progress Distribution's strategic partners. Our aim is to build, maintain, and manage partner relationships that drive revenue for Trusted Knight.
"Trusted Knight's Partner Select Program provides the necessary sales, marketing and technical resources to jointly develop a customised business plan to maximise sales results for our partners," claimed Wallace.
John Quinn, CEO of Progress Distribution, said Trusted Knight joining the distributor's vendor stable illustrates the firm's "proactive approach to business development".
"We are establishing the right type of partner base in the UK for them to accelerate their market adoption while also offering those partners extra support in finding and closing deals," added Quinn.
