Tech Data ramps up Symantec product range

Tech Data has deepened its relationship with Symantec taking more of the vendor's product range across Europe

Tech Data Europe’s agreement with Symantec has been expanded to cover the full range of the security vendor’s products from consumer security software to information management software.  

The aim is to provide Symantec products across Tech Data’s customer base from retailers to value-added resellers and system integrators and the agreement covers UK, Belgium and the Netherlands. Prior to the agreement, the Fortune 500 distributor provided Symantec’s enterprise technologies in only the UK and Netherlands.

The new agreement will now see it provide Symantec consumer and SME product distribution through its electronic software distribution system. Licensed products will be distributed through its License OnLine system.

VARs and systems integrators will be pointed in the direction of Azlan, the distributor’s enterprise business unit, for large scale security products and value-add implementations.

Reza Honarmand, vice president Software and Cloud at Tech Data, said: “Symantec is a leading organisation... offering a full range of [products] that meet the needs of all markets – from... Norton, to endpoint protection and availability for SMBs, and... enterprise protection and information management software."

Jamie Farrell, EMEA channel director Symantec said: “We are delighted that Tech Data has extended its relationship [it] is uniquely positioned to services alongside its technical consultancy, expertise and sales support.”

Tech Data also recently announced an expanded distribution agreement with CA Technologies to provide the CA arcserve managed service licensing programme to resellers.  Tech Data said its resellers would be able to offer CA licensing on individual products or technologies to their customers on a monthly basis.
