Global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky announced on Monday, 26 August 2019, that it has signed on Tarsus Distribution as its newest B2B and B2C distributor. The agreement forms part of Kaspersky’s growth pipeline for the Southern Africa market as well as its broader strategy of building a safer world that is immune to cyberthreats.
Tarsus Distribution, a member of the Tarsus Technology Group, issues IT hardware, software, enterprise and security within Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique.
“We live in a world where technology connects us across platforms and borders like never before, opening up new possibilities for everyone. However, this digital reality also brings with it the risk of cybercrime and cyber-threats. Our product line is expanding to accommodate the digitally transforming world, to become a technology leader with an advanced and comprehensive portfolio of security solutions and services, for effective protection,” says Riaan Badenhorst, General Manager for Kaspersky in Africa.
“However, in order to do so, we need to partner with the right distributors, such as Tarsus Distribution, who can not only connect our offerings to channel resellers and subsequently businesses across the region, but who also support our end goal of building immunity against cyberthreats, where people and organisations can trust and use innovations without worry.”
Alan Hawkins, Security and Enterprise Sales Director at Tarsus Distribution, says, “A consistently growing cyberthreat landscape is resulting in a distributor network that understands the urgent need to keep innovation top of mind”.
“Our agreement with Kaspersky helps us achieve this and allows us the opportunity to grow our existing Kaspersky partners, as well as recruit new partners by offering them solid profit margins, efficiency, specialisations and skills transfer. With this ease of doing business, resellers will be able to use these benefits to better support and secure their customers.”
