Secure Computing announces new partnership with ALSTOM IT, completing the restructure of it distribution channel



ALSTOM IT now sole distributor of Secure Computings authentication software

Secure Computing, the experts in securing connections between people, applications, and networks, today announced the appointment of ALSTOM Information Technology as the sole Australian distributor of its token-based authentication and access control security software solutions.
ALSTOM IT will distribute the SafeWord family of products, which includes SafeWord Premier Access, SafeWord for Citrix and other authentication products in the SafeWord for family.
We chose ALSTOM IT as our distributor for SafeWord because we view them as a best-of-breed distributor, said Eric Krieger, Regional Sales Manager, Secure Computing. Since ALSTOM IT is a major distributor of Citrix products, they are a perfect fit for our range. Because SafeWord for Citrix is a streamlined version of SafeWord, it is an ideal addition to ALSTOM ITs line of authentication and VPN solutions.
The SafeWord family of products complement our existing suite of world-class server based offerings, in particular Citrix, AppSense and Wyse, said Greg Newham, General Manager for ALSTOM Information Technology. We were looking for a password authentication solution to offer our resellers, and after researching a range of products, Secure Computings SafeWord product range proved to have a tighter integration with Citrix than any other product we tested. It was the obvious choice.
The new partnership with ALSTOM IT completes the recent expansion of Secure Computings Australian distribution channel.
Our new channel policy in Australia has involved the creation of single-product focused distributors, explained Krieger. This, in turn, provides our resellers with a single point of contact, simplifying the channel for all involved.
