AppGate enters relationship with distributor Promark to propel adoption of leading-edge cybersecurity offerings
MIAMI – March 25, 2020 – AppGate, the cybersecurity company providing solutions for people, devices and systems based on the principles of Zero Trust security, today announced a distribution agreement with Promark, a premier, U.S.-focused value added distributor (VAD) and wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE:IM).
The deal will put AppGate’s leading-edge secure access solution into the hands of more enterprises and government organizations that face increasingly-complex and rapidly-changing cybersecurity threats.
Under the agreement, Promark will distribute AppGate SDP, a unique and robust software-defined perimeter solution, among its growing base of U.S. channel partners. AppGate SDP will help Promark clients replace inadequate Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology and securely address remote access and cloud migrations. This is especially important now as companies are implementing mass, unexpected, remote workforce initiatives in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
“The shortcomings of VPNs become more apparent as companies are enforcing remote work policies in response to COVID-19,” said AppGate Channel Chief Tina Gravel. “The demand for iron-clad solutions that will keep enterprise and government secure are increasingly urgent. Joining forces with Promark will help us meet that demand and equip more organizations with cybersecurity solutions that can easily scale.”
The relationship ushers Promark into the cybersecurity space and enables its channel partners to increase revenue through offering cybersecurity products and services.
“We're excited to work with AppGate to offer our clients world-class cybersecurity solutions and expand the portfolio of products we stand behind,” said Promark President/GM Jeffrey Brown. “With IoT, the cloud, an influx of remote workers and a growing number of nation-state attacks, the demand for cybersecurity products has never been greater.”
In response to the COVID-19 situation, AppGate is offering a free 90-day Software Defined Perimeter Pilot to help enterprises ramp up any work-from-home initiatives.
AppGate made headlines in 2019 when it spun out from Cyxtera Technologies, a move that accelerated the company’s efforts in the rapidly-evolving cybersecurity industry. For more information about AppGate and how it uniquely keeps organizations secure, visit appgate.com.
