Silver Peak Announces Distribution Agreement with Westcon-Comstor in Australia and New Zealand



Leading global distributor to support accelerating enterprise demand for the industry leading Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform across Australia and New Zealand

Sydney – 6 November 2019 Silver Peak®, the global SD-WAN leader, delivering the transformational promise of the cloud with a self-driving wide area network™, today announced an Australian and New Zealand distribution agreement with Westcon-Comstor, a value-added global distributor (VAD) of security, collaboration, infrastructure and data centre solutions. This is an extension of a global distribution partnership announced in 2018.
 
Through its Westcon line of business, the distributor will immediately add the business-driven Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform to its portfolio, enabling resellers throughout Australia and New Zealand to engage with enterprise customers and shift them to a business-first networking model with a single, centrally managed SD-WAN edge platform.
 
“Our new distribution partnership with Westcon-Comstor marks a key milestone in accelerating our business expansion and customer acquisition across Australia and New Zealand,” said Graham Schultz, ANZ regional director for Silver Peak. “Westcon-Comstor is uniquely positioned with its breadth of technical expertise and broad sales network boasting an expansive portfolio of partners across both countries. The company’s substantial global footprint makes things so much easier for our local customers with branches overseas, in terms of deployment and ongoing support.”
 
“Partnering with Silver Peak presents a substantial opportunity for us to offer a business-driven SD-WAN edge platform to resellers and enterprise customers in Australia and New Zealand that directly and securely connects users to SaaS and cloud applications to deliver the highest quality of experience,” said Patrick Aronson, executive vice president, APAC of Westcon-Comstor. “We can now offer value-added distribution of our full portfolio to existing Silver Peak partners, while evangelising the SD-WAN addressable market opportunity to potential new value-added resellers (VARs) and system integrators across the region.”
