Westcon Group Inks North American Distribution Agreement With FireEye

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, today announced the company is continuing to drive partner revenue streams via a new North American agreement with FireEye (NASDAQ: FEYE). Westcon now offers the company's virtual machine-based security platform – providing the highest levels of real-time protection against advanced cyber attacks.

FireEye's Threat Prevention Platform is designed to guard against security attacks circumventing traditional signature-based defenses such as firewalls, IPS, anti-virus, and gateways.  The platform offers real-time, dynamic threat protection without signatures.  The result is comprehensive security across primary threat vectors, including Web, e-mail and files, throughout all stages of an attack lifecycle.

"The rapid proliferation of IT breaches makes network security a top concern for businesses.  At Westcon, we've developed a unique portfolio addressing much more than typical security – helping customers attack potential threats from every angle," said Andrew Warren, Vice President, Security, Westcon Group.  "Westcon is committed to helping partners generate revenue with real-world business solutions that tackle evolving customer security requirements.  We're excited to add FireEye as a key part of this award-winning portfolio."

At the foundation of FireEye is a unique virtual execution engine – complemented by dynamic threat intelligence.  The system identifies and protects against cyber-attacks in real time -- before corporate data is compromised.  The solution supplements traditional security defenses, typically limited in stopping new malware.  FireEye offerings range from Web and e-mail security to file protection and malware analysis.

"Today's security threats are more sophisticated and complex than ever before – leaving companies exposed to cyber espionage and crime. FireEye offers an open framework for sharing and aggregating cyber threat intelligence to guard against new risks," said Steve Pataky, Vice President of Channels, FireEye.  "With deep security expertise and a large distribution footprint, Westcon Group is the perfect fit to elevate our presence throughout North America."

For more than 25 years, Westcon has partnered with the top names in IT security, allowing resellers to drive new business via the market's most innovative security portfolios.  Westcon guides resellers to profitability, allowing customers to secure what matters most.  From evaluation, pre-design and planning to technical enablement and educational support, Westcon offers the support necessary to ensure partners thrive in the challenging business environment.
