Synaxon forms new supplier partnership with F-Secure

Warrington, UK 08 February 2016: Reseller services group, Synaxon, has added the leading online security and privacy software vendor, F-Secure, to its list of supplier partners.

The F-Secure range includes full system, endpoint and network protection suites as well as management and control and enterprise cyber security solutions and the highly-rated Freedome VPN solution, which is ideal for customers that want to make sure remote workers are always securely connected and that communications stay private. All F-Secure solutions are now available to order via EGIS, either as boxed or for electronic software download.

With its unique approach to protection, F-Secure offers resellers clear market differentiation. It is also one of the first vendors to move into the potentially lucrative area of smart home security. The recently-announced F-Secure SENSE set of solutions combine unique hardware and software to provide a single source of protection for all of the devices in the homes, including tablets, smartphones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Mike Barron, UK channel director at Synaxon, says: “This is a really great new signing for Synaxon UK and its members. The agreement with F-Secure will give our members access to a fantastic range of online security and protection solutions and, with the forthcoming SENSE range, F-Secure will be one of the first vendors to offer a complete range of privacy and protection offerings for the entire home. Synaxon UK is looking forward to working with F-Secure and our members to promote its solutions and the wide range of opportunities they present.”

Olli Bliss, head of partner sales at F-Secure, stated: “F-Secure is pleased to be working with Synaxon UK. Our organisations have shared values – integrity, trust, transparency and trustworthiness – and we look forward to forming a productive partnership. As online protection and privacy becomes even more important in businesses and in the home, we see genuine potential for growth with partners. Synaxon can help us reach further into the channel and we’ll be making sure its members have every opportunity to maximise the potential of our full range of protection solutions.”

F-Secure is one of the most trusted names in the IT security industry and has been defending millions of businesses and individuals from digital threats for over 25 years. The company has a strong understanding of European markets and the needs of channel partners.
