StarLink appointed as a Symantec VAD for the Middle East
StarLink, a regional value added distributor (VAD), has announced it has been appointed as a VAD for Symantec in the Middle East. As a platform-independent software company without bias to an individual operating system or hardware environment, Symantec helps customers manage more technologies with greater efficiency, on more platforms – even in virtual environments – than any other company. With multi-platform software and a worldwide delivery and support infrastructure, Symantec helps customers optimise technology investments throughout their lifetimes.
StarLink is acclaimed as one of the largest value-added distributors of IT security solutions across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa. StarLink’s extensive partner and customer base in the Middle East will now have access to Symantec’s market leading Enterprise product range. Nidal Othman, Managing Director at StarLink said, “This exciting new business relationship is an organic one, with Symantec’s acquisition of Blue Coat. Following the success we previously achieved with Blue Coat, we are glad to be part of Symantec’s journey in establishing itself as the industry’s largest pure play cybersecurity company, and we are committed to working together with our channel to help realise our collective goal of ‘Defining the Future of CyberSecurity’.”
