Arrow to support the UK and Ireland channel community with Forescout’s CounterACT Security Platform
CAMPBELL, Calif., February 11, 2015 – Forescout Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of continuous monitoring and mitigation solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organisations, today announced that it has signed value-added distributor Arrow, in the U.K., as it continues to expand its customer base via a bolstered U.K. reseller channel.
Building on the existing relationship between Arrow and Forescout in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland), the two companies decided to expand the current agreement to include the U.K. and Ireland. Today, many organisations are dynamically transforming their businesses to support new business models; and network complexity, exposure diversity and security threat velocity are growing challenges for most organisations.
David Ellis, director of strategy at Arrow ECS UK and Ireland said “We are delighted to add Forescout to our portfolio and are excited to take their technologies to our resellers. Through Forescout’s ControlFabric® technology, we can add continuous monitoring and mitigation to our existing suite of security solutions by leveraging their CounterACT® platform, and in return, allow organisations secure access to business-critical information regardless of time, location, or device.”
Through its unique channel programmes, Arrow provides its resellers with the necessary support and skills to successfully compete and win in the highly competitive UK security market, through a wide range of value added services including sales, marketing and technical support
“As we continue to grow our business in the UK, our collaboration with Arrow will allow us to further strengthen and expand our position through their network of specialised resellers and system integrators,” said John Hagerty, EMEA director for Channels at Forescout. “We see this as a huge benefit to our business, and through Arrow’s customer network and services, we can continue to expand our presence in the UK.”
