Unified Threat Management Provider Partners With Lifeboat
An article on TMC Net reports that Astaro announced it has entered into a new distribution relationship with specialty distributor Lifeboat Distribution. The UTM provider claims the partnership will provide new business opportunities for Lifeboat's network of resellers in the United States and Canada. Various solutions including Astaro Security Gateway(ASG) appliances, Astaro wireless Access Points, Astaro Remote Ethernet Devices (RED) and Astaro's hosted Mail Archiving Service are covered by the agreement.
"'In the past our order administration processes and previous distributor relationships were adequate for our size,' said Bob Darabant, vice president Americas, Astaro, in a statement. 'However, Astaro is growing rapidly and it was clear we needed to make investments in our future and our partners' futures so we could continue building on our successes.' 'Part of these investments included creating a relationship with a new distributor, and we chose Lifeboat because their security expertise and distribution assistance will fuel Astaro's continued growth,' Darabant added."
