Spark-owned distie Entelar has added US/Israeli cloud security vendor Radware to its line-up.
The agreement covers Aotearoa New Zealand and includes the vendor’s application and security solutions.
Radware provides web application firewall (WAF), bot manager, API security, and DDoS protection solutions, using machine learning to identify potentially malicious traffic.
Entelar’s chief executive officer Victoria Mahan said the partnership with Radware indicates the company’s ambitions for growth.
“We are really excited to announce this partnership with Radware, which enhances our portfolio and helps to support our customers in providing cyber security solutions to their clients,” she said.
Spark Group CISO and telco cloud general manager Josh Bahlman added that the agreement builds on an existing relationship between Radware and Spark and strengthens the Group’s ability to provide security solutions to the NZ market.
“By establishing this new partnership with Entelar, it allows us to provide the next evolution of products and services to the market. Given the evolution of attacks saturating networks as well as attacking web applications, Radware has always provided extremely advanced and innovative solutions,” he said.
Formerly known as Telegistics, the distributor rebranded last year to reflect its development from a mobile phone repair and logistics company to a national ICT distributor.
Last year, it added Ekehau to its enterprise wireless networking technology vendor Ekahau to its roster. Other vendors in its portfolio include Cisco, Nokia, Samsung, and ACCO Brands.
Radware has built technology alliances with major network vendors including Cisco and Nokia to create integrated solutions for joint customers.
It recently purchased cloud DDoS network operator SecurityDAM for US$30 million to accelerate the growth of its cloud security services business.
SecurityDAM was the sole provider of scrubbing centre services for Radware’s cloud DDoS protection service since 2014.
