SurfControl today announced a Value Added Reseller (VAR) partnership
with Los Angeles-based En Pointe Technologies Inc., a Microsoft
Gold Certified Partner, to globally distribute SurfControl’s
Internet security products alongside En Pointe’s own security
"The market is saturated with expensive products that offer
only limited protection against Internet threats. SurfControl directly
addresses these threats through a bundled, innovative, cost-effective
solution," said Ali Din, marketing director, En Pointe Information
Security Services. "As our primary objective is to provide
the highest quality and best value in business solutions and services,
we are exceptionally pleased to be able to offer SurfControl's award-winning
Internet protection suite to our commercial, government and education
"As Internet threats continue to grow in both sophistication
and malicious intent there is a clear need for robust, scalable
and customizable preventative threat solutions," said David
Harris, vice president of Worldwide Channel at SurfControl. "Leveraging
En Pointe's expertise and established customer base, SurfControl
can continue to provide best-of-class technology to all sized organizations,
meeting both their security and compliance needs. We're confident
that our partnership with En Pointe creates a win for both companies,
our clients and the industry in general."
