DeviceLock® and COMPUTERLINKS Ink Deal for North American Distribution
DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in Endpoint Data Leak Prevention (DLP) software, today announced a distribution agreement with COMPUTERLINKS North America.
The COMPUTERLINKS Group, based in Austin, Texas, is a global market leader with more than 20 years’ experience in the distribution of IT security and Internet technology products and services. COMPUTERLINKS offers a single source of supply of world-leading international hardware and software manufacturers’ products, as well as unrivalled logistics for both local and international supply along with comprehensive technical support services. COMPUTERLINKS is the distributor of choice for thousands of resellers worldwide, with offices in 19 countries and more than 550 employees.
“As our business in North America continues to accelerate, we’re looking to COMPUTERLINKS to help us identify, recruit and train a very focused network of IT security-specialized VARs,” said Vladimir Chernavsky, Executive Vice President, Americas Operations, DeviceLock. “As an enterprise DLP solution, we’re not looking to set up mass distribution or mail-order of our products in every IT products and services outlet in North America. Instead we intend to scale our business by focusing on regional VARs who are thoroughly trained and competent in the area of IT security. COMPUTERLINKS knows these kinds of resellers, and has a very successful track record in that regard. We’re looking forward to working closely with them to build-out a DLP-savvy North American channel.”
“DeviceLock offers COMPUTERLINKS a great opportunity to benefit from participation in the hottest market within IT security, based on a Gartner-published survey of top IT executives a few months ago that showed DLP was the top area of concern,” said Russell Zientek, President, COMPUTERLINKS North America. “DeviceLock’s Endpoint DLP Suite was reviewed by SC Magazine in August and was given the highest possible 5-star rating in every single category. No other vendor scored higher. So, we’re excited to add DeviceLock to our line-up of industry-leading IT security products.”
