To support unprecedented growth in the IT security sector for Nexxian Consulting in the UK; it has entered into a strategic alliance partnership with the four year old Sika Solutions company based in Hull, UK, both part of the European Netasq partner network that now numbers over 300. The strategic alliance was discussed in detail at the recent 2007 NETASQ SECURITY ACADEMY conference in Paris and the agreement secured early January 2008. More than 270 participants were in attendance at this year’s event, from countries including Poland, Bulgaria, Norway and Turkey. Coincidentally, NETASQ announced the launch of its new partner program: “NETASQ is praised for the quality of its sales network, but we wish to go a step further by guaranteeing our users a certain level of expertise and support for our products that is perfectly adapted to their needs. With more than 300 active partners in Europe, we hope to harmonize our program while retaining its simplicity and efficiency,” said Dominique Meurisse, NETASQ’s Executive Vice President.
Colin Herridge, Sales Director of Nexxian Consulting stated, “Creating this Strategic Alliance positions us well for increased national coverage and additional technical resource… we have been planning for it for some time but finding the right partner with the right blend of capability and drive is easier said than done. The people at Sika perfectly compliment the skill set of the team at Nexxian; we’re looking forward to a long term and successful business relationship”.
Gary Heart, MD of Sika Consulting added, “This is going to work well, the two companies have the same ambitions – to bring best-of-breed IT solutions to a broad selection of discerning businesses throughout the UK. Both companies have a strong track record in the Public and Education sectors where Netasq is a proven, robust security solution – it is a serious solution for businesses and organisations that are serious about their IT security”.
The two companies will maintain their own clients and identities while developing and growing the Netasq client base which now has over 35,000 global users. Nexxian Consulting is now, without doubt, the UK’s leading Netasq VAR.
