Security firm Sophos's appointment of Mavisco Resources as its Malaysian distributor signals a focus on the public sector, small and medium enterprises and managed cloud services, it said.

Sophos ASEAN director sales Sumit Bansal said Mavisco Resources will distribute the complete range of Sophos solutions in the areas of unified threat management (UTM), endpoint security, encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), mobile control and Web & email security.

"We are partnering with Mavisco because of their experience as a technology distributor and their extensive national sales and service network," said Bansal. "With this appointment, we intend to develop a stronger distributed market base and bring our solutions closer to SMEs at state and local levels in Malaysia - beginning with Penang and Kuching, where Mavisco have particular strengths."

"With a broad network of resellers and service locations nationwide, Mavisco will also help us establish a broad market footprint for our managed enterprise cloud security services, to better serve government and public sector organisations that have multiple branches around the country, as well as SMEs" he said.

"This partnership represents a significant new direction for Mavisco in the Malaysian IT channel," said Mavisco Resources business development manager, Jenny Leong. "We are focused on bringing Sophos' superior technology to our highly skilled reseller base and will support their own customer development initiatives with our pre-sales, post-sales, licence and renewals management and market development services. We expect our partners and their customers will strongly benefit from this refreshing new opportunity in the sector."
