Watchguard CEO Mark Sinclair Watchguard CEO Mark Sinclair

Network security solutions vendor Watchguard Technologies has appointed Soft Solutions as its distributor to support expansion of its New Zealand channel.

Watchguard says the new appointment will enable it to rapidly expand its channel reseller footprint and help to accelerate overall business growth to meet the growing demand for network security and intelligence solutions and services among SMB and distributed enterprises.

The agreement will see Soft Solutions distribute WatchGuard’s entire range of network security, W-Fi and multifactor authentication products.

Mark Sinclair, ANZ Regional Director, WatchGuard Technologies, said, “Soft Solutions’ appointment forms a key element of our New Zealand channel strategy to expand and build upon an existing base of technically sound resellers to support the strong sales growth of our range of security solutions.

”We selected Soft Solutions on the basis of its specialist security focus, technical expertise and range of managed services which provide customers and resellers with an array of technical support. We’re looking forward to working with Soft Solutions to enhance a quality channel of resellers to service the fast growing small to medium-sized business security market opportunity."

Jason Gass, Sales Manager, Soft Solutions, said, “The WatchGuard product line fits perfectly with our existing portfolio of security solutions and value added services. It offers our reseller partners the opportunity to invest in building and supporting a burgeoning business that fulfils a real and present need and offers a chance to retain robust margins.

“Indeed, we had been looking for some time for a company and product solution set such as WatchGuard to complement our existing security solutions portfolio and were impressed with both the product set, including its breadth of features such as multi-factor authentication and single sign-on, and the company’s overall commitment to the New Zealand market. It’s a brand which customers can rely on to evolve in line with their own business growth.

“At the same time, we’ll be able to enhance our managed services business by integrating WatchGuard within our overall offering. We’re excited to work with a brand of the calibre which WatchGuard brand delivers to resellers, including its reliability, visionary roadmap and strong partner retention rate. We look forward to building a mutually successful business in the years ahead.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
