Malaysia based Convergence Networks has been appointed as a local distributor by enterprise security specialist Blue Coat Systems as another move to strengthen its presence in Malaysia.
Blue Coat Systems Malaysia country manager Ivan Wen said the partnership would help continue the penetration into the local market of Blue Coat's security systems.
Under the agreement, both companies will work together to offer security and networking solutions, including advanced threat protection (ATP) and patented optimisation technologies, for secure Web-based communications and accelerated delivery of business users' applications.
Wen also recently told Computerworld Malaysia that in the last 12 months there has been a "pivotal acceleration of threats" to the security landscape as the threat environment evolve from hobbyists and cyber criminals, to a much more sophisticated group of adversaries.
