Westcon-Comstor inks new EMEA distribution agreement with Proofpoint

Westcon-Comstor has signed a new distribution agreement with Proofpoint for Proofpoint’s cybersecurity and compliance solutions in the EMEA market.

The additions of Proofpoint’s email security, cloud security and employee awareness training solutions allow Westcon-Comstor to provide industry-leading, expert security solutions to the EMEA channel.

With the email security market expected to reach approximately USD 11.3 billion by 2030 (market research future), Proofpoint, as a recognised market leader, is a crucial addition to our Westcon NGS vendor portfolio,” saidDaniel Hurel, Vice President, Westcon Cyber Security & Next Gen Solutions, EMEA. “As a technology alliance partner of Palo Alto Networks, CrowdStrike and Zscaler, Proofpoint is perfectly placed to become a key player in our Zero Trust and Cloud Security strategy. The alliance will allow Westcon resellers to offer customers a unique solution that spans network, endpoint security, cloud, email, and social media attack vectors via an integrated, multi-layered protection with shared threat intelligence, ultimately reducing the attack surface.”

Email remains the number one threat vector and cybercriminals consistently use social engineering attacks to target organisation’s employees and trick them into falling victim to attacks,” said Neill Burton Vice President of Channels and Alliances, EMEA at Proofpoint. “Proofpoint is one of the first companies to integrate a people-centric view into its security platform to easily identify vulnerable users and create a tailored security approach to best protect each individual employee, across multiple cloud platforms. This collaboration with Westcon delivers first-class cybersecurity protection that meets the needs of all organisations facing today’s fast-evolving threat landscape and further enforces Proofpoint’s commitment to its channel business in EMEA.”
