Published On: January 21, 2019Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Tech Data has announced a strategic partnership with StratoZen to offer cloud delivery of Fortinet-based managed security services, including network device management and security information and event management (SIEM). In a separate announcement, the Clearwater, Florida-based distributor also unveiled a new alliance with Encryptics for enhanced encryption and encoding of data.

The combination of the Tech Data/Fortinet Hardware-as-a-Service (HWaaS) program and StratoZen’s security portfolio promises to enable partners to offer all the Fortinet appliances and services. The partnership enables end users to work with a single partner for managing their full networking security needs.

Said Alex Ryals, vice president of security solutions at Tech Data: “Many MSPs use StratoZen to instantly enhance their security capabilities, and Tech Data’s distribution and supply chain expertise will help StratoZen expand its target market immediately, providing our partner ecosystem with another strong security offering.”

Meanwhile, the new partnership with Encryptics will bring the ability to encrypt and encode data at creation, in transit, in use and at rest. This solution is promised to work on any platform or application through a SaaS model intended to fit any IT environment.

“We’re excited to add Encryptics to our expansive security solutions portfolio,” said Heather Murray, Tech Data’s vice president of security and new vendor acquisition. “It will complement our existing offerings nicely.”
