For our British readers, the UKPRwire is reporting that AppGate recently signed on a trio of new VARs to help it resell its network access control and mobile access products. No need for jealousy, however, as the network security vendor is looking to take on more. All in all, AppGate is hoping to double its reseller network in 2007.
According to the release, AppGate’s renewed interest in its partner initiatives is a response to increased demand and anticipated growth. Jamie Bodley-Scott, AppGate’s UK and Ireland operations manager said, “[Partners] are key in helping us to increase awareness and highlight how a new approach to working practices requires a new approach to network design.”
Unfortunately, while this news may be exciting for our audience in Great Britain, our other readers are left cooling their heels, at least until AppGate gets itchy to expand outside of Britannia. While they wait, however, they might be well-served to check out our networking vendor topic center to learn more about other vendors’ partner program offerings.
