Westcon-Comstor, has expanded its distribution agreement with cloud security specialist, Zscaler bringing Westcon’s offering of Zscaler’s Zero Trust offering to new markets throughout Europe, namely Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden with future expansion into APAC also planned.
“We’re at a point now where the SMB community is actively looking to double down on cybersecurity in the modern distributed cloud environment. High profile attacks have been regularly hitting the news and the pandemic has, for a variety of reasons, increased the attack surface of SMBs resulting in a greater impetus to get cybersecurity right,” said Arun Dharmalingam, Vice President EMEA and APJ Alliances at Zscaler. “As we look to expand our offering across the rest of Europe and into APAC, Westcon-Comstor became the obvious partner for us. The early success of this relationship combined with Westcon-Comstor’s wide regional reach, marketing and sales support are just some of the many ways that Westcon-Comstor set itself apart from other channel partners.”
“The Zero Trust Security Market is projected to grow from USD 19.6 billion in 2020 to USD 51.6 billion by 2026, according to Markets & Markets”, said Daniel Hurel, Vice President, Westcon EMEA – Cyber Security & Next Generation Solutions. “Zscaler, is a crucial part of our portfolio. The early results of our relationship have been extremely encouraging and we’re proud to be expanding our remit to bring these services to more European markets. We’re confident Zscaler will continue to play a key role in helping our partners to significantly reduce the attack surface of their customers, with a true Zero Trust approach.”
