Paris, November 4th 2014 – Arkoon Netasq, key player in cybersecurity, has entered a new stage in strengthening the alliance of both entities by offering its distributors a global approach in the form of the new Partner Connect program.

In July this year, Arkoon Netasq announced the launch of a new generation of network protection solutions. This product line, named Stormshield Network Security, will complement the Stormshield Endpoint Security (workstation protection, even against unknown zero-day attacks) and Stormshield Data Security (data protection) solution ranges and marks the birth of the Stormshield brand.

For the purpose of easing the transition to this new range of solutions, Arkoon Netasq sought to reorganize its partner program. The vendor intends to consolidate its existing relationships in this way and certify new partners. Partner Connect aims to guarantee a stronger local presence while focusing on providing its clients with high-quality support and professional services.

The program will cover Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), North America (NAM), Latin America (LAM) and the Asia-Pacific (APAC). It is based on two main foundations – training and certification. Partners under this program will be guided on sales and marketing-related promotional activities and will be entitled to local sales support as well as ongoing training widely approved by the community of Stormshield-certified individuals.
