Cyberoam Expands Distribution Tie-Up with FDC to Strengthen Presence in the Middle East
Dubai, 12th July 2015
Cyberoam, a leading global provider of network security appliances and FDC International, a leading IT distribution company have decided to take their distribution tie up to the next level. FDC will now be responsible for distributing Cyberoam products in UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan and Lebanon.
This decision is in line with Cyberoam’s objective of strengthening its footprint in emerging network security markets. According to reports, the security market in Middle East is projected to be worth $25bn over the next ten years. The Middle East is a growing market for network security solutions as the complexity and incidences of network security threats in the region are going up. The region known for its oil business has been taking cyber threats seriously after the cyberattack on Qatari Natural Gas Company hit headlines in 2012. Cyberoam believes this is the right time to entrench its presence in the region as a provider of reliable next generation network security products.
The company believes FDC’s already well-established distribution network across the Middle East will help it satisfy the demand for enhanced network security that is picking up steam. Commenting on the expansion, Mr. Ravinder Janotra, Cyberoam’s Regional Manager Middle East said, “We strongly believe that extending this collaboration with FDC will help our suite of security products reach businesses which want to secure their networks with solutions that deliver sustainable ROI over the long run.”
The Business Unit Head of ProValue, MENA, at FDC, Mr.Rajashekhar says, “This association with Cyberoam has been mutually beneficial and will continue to be so. Our widespread distribution network across countries like UAE, Bahrain, Qatar and others will help Cyberoam increase its footprint in the Middle East market; the quality and successful track record of the company’s products and its reputation on the market will allow us to increase our distribution revenue. It’s a win-win situation.”
Cyberoam is playing a stellar role in reinforcing the IT Security of a wide range of businesses spread across more than 125 countries. Future ready features like EAL4+ certified firewall protection, patented layer 8 technology, high performance hardware appliances, scalable security architecture and flexible network connectivity have made Cyberoam a trusted name in network security. With this extended collaboration with FDC, the company plans to make inroads into a Middle East market that is fast becoming aware of the importance of network security.
