Alternative Technology, Inc., an Arrow Electronics, Inc. company and leading specialty distributor of thin-client/server-based computing, edge infrastructure, virtualization, and security solutions, continues to expand its security solutions by announcing it will distribute the full line of McAfee security software, appliances and managed security services for small to medium businesses and enterprises. Those offerings include: system/endpoint security, network security, data protection, and risk and compliance management.
Alternative Technology will offer McAfee’s complete line of security solutions which can protect consumers, small business, and all types of enterprises. McAfee Total Protection Suites offer security solutions for servers, networks, desktops and mobile devices.
McAfee solutions offered by Alternative Technology include the recently announced 10Gbs Network Security Platform and high-performance McAfee Content Security Blade Server. McAfee offers scalability for security and compliance management for networks, data and endpoints across large-scale physical and virtual environments as well as small-scale and mid-size networks.
McAfee’s Email and Web Security Virtual Appliance has the same features and effectiveness of the physical McAfee security appliances and helps organizations to defend their networks from spam, malware and malicious Websites.
“McAfee security solutions are a significant addition to our line card and will be well received by our North American channel partners,” said Tom Zorn, senior vice president, Alternative Technology. “They complement our other products and service offerings. In particular, McAfee’s recently announced Email and Web Security Virtual Appliance, in beta, built from the ground up for the VMware platform, McAfee’s new virtual infrastructure security assessment service, and their plans to embed VMware’s VMsafe security technology into future McAfee security solution offerings, tie in very well with our rapidly growing VMware business.”
“Alternative Technology brings excellent mid-market and enterprise market reach and a strong reputation for providing leading solutions in both the security and virtualization markets," said David Dickison, senior vice president of North American Channels at McAfee. “We look forward to working with Alternative Technology to drive new opportunities and to bring these solutions to the small and medium business and enterprise markets through their extensive channel relationships.”
Complementing Alternative Technology’s professional methodology for security assessment, remediation and management, is the McAfee Foundstone Professional Services offering. The Foundstone Virtual Infrastructure Security Assessment is the first security service dedicated to virtualization. McAfee security solutions will also be added to Alternative Technology’s PCI Compliance Solutions Program.
