Arrow ECS joins Sphinx and Computerlinks on the distribution roster but because of its virtualisation pedigree will be expected to deliver Trend's products into a different reseller base.
The distributor has already brought together its virtualisation and security operations and also has an established relationship with VMware.
"Trend Micro is totally committed to its distributors, and this appointment provides access to a new channel and new resellers in the virtualisation space," said Trend Micro managing director of UK and Ireland Nigel Seddon.
Steve Pearce, managing director for Arrow ECS UK, said that there was a need for security products that fitted with VMware.
"This agreement will better enable our resellers to assist their customers with securing either existing or future virtualised environments," he said.
