DNA Connect secures Webroot distribution deal

15 Jul 15

DNA Connect has signed a distribution deal with Webroot as the vendor seeks to expand its Australian reach.

DNA Connect will distribute Webroot’s enterprise offerings, including endpoint protection, web security service and mobile protection.

The distributor is offering new partners and Webroot Elite Partners ‘considerable’ incentives and up to 10% back in reward points as part of the new agreement. DNA Connect says its marketing team will also help resellers generate business leads.

Munsoor Khan, DNA Connect executive director, says security is an increasing issue in Australia and Webroot’s intelligent cybersecurity solutions ‘address it in such a compelling and innovative way that we are really thrilled to offer them to our market’.

“Unlike traditional security, the SecureAnywhere line installs and scans in seconds and doesn’t need time consuming security updates or signature database downloads,” Khan says.

Robbie Upcroft, Webroot Asia Pacific managing director, says DNA Connect was selected as a key partner based on its technical background, industry expertise and strong customer base.

Upcroft says the deal will open up ‘significant opportunities for new partnerships across Australia’.

The distribution deal is not exclusive, with Webroot also distributed in Australia by Bluechip Infotech.
