TARRYTOWN, N.Y., April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Comstor, the business unit of Westcon Group dedicated to Cisco products, today announced a global distribution agreement with SecureLogix. A leading provider of Voice and Unified Communications (UC) security policy enforcement solutions, SecureLogix is a member of Cisco's Industry Solution Partner Network.
Today's announcement enables Comstor reseller partners to now offer the SecureLogix® ETM® (Enterprise Telephony Management) System to customers worldwide. Leveraging SecureLogix, partners can substantially increase their competitive positioning and gross profit margins on sales of Cisco UC solutions.
"Faced with more sophisticated security threats every day, companies are now demanding solutions specifically designed to protect their voice and UC networks," said Jon Pritchard, President, Comstor Worldwide. "SecureLogix offers voice and UC security features enabling reseller partners to break free from the RFP-driven sales cycles. The company's solutions deliver immediate security and ROI value to customers, which can be used to assist transitions to UC or SIP trunking in a more secure manner."
The SecureLogix ETM System delivers unified voice and UC policy enforcement capabilities, addressing real-world threats to enterprise networks, such as Telephony Denial of Service (TDOS) attacks, toll/voice fraud, network breaches, social engineering schemes, harassing callers, and toll abuse. The ETM System offers real-time monitoring and reporting on the use, utilization and performance of voice and UC resources -- which can be leveraged to identify new cost savings and enhance network performance and service availability. The solution runs on a single interface that spans TDM and SIP environments, bringing unified policy enforcement and intelligence reporting across the entire enterprise.
"We estimate that Cisco Authorized Resellers who include SecureLogix in their sales proposals are realizing a significant increase in gross profit margins on UC solution sales," said Lee Sutterfield, President, SecureLogix. "This distribution agreement is a great opportunity for partners to dramatically increase profits while meeting the specific security and intelligence challenges associated with voice and UC networks. Comstor's expertise and world-wide distribution programs will become the cornerstone of our global channel program."
