Names Westcon Solutions as distributor in China, Taiwan and SEA.

Mobile security provider Good Technology has recently named a value-added distributor to tap into the enterprise markets in Southeast Asia, China and Taiwan.  

Westcon Solutions has been assigned an Asia-wide master agreement to distribute Good Technology’s solutions in key Asian markets. 

Good Technology offers secure enterprise mobility management solutions for enterprises and government networks. Among its recent wins in the region is for the Australian Government’s Defence Signals Directorate (DSD), which has endorsed Good for Enterprise to secure iOS devices. Good Technology solutions are also used in banks and other industries in the region. 

David Cockerham, APAC channel director, Good Technology, said it would not have been possible for them to enter the Philippine market without Westcon. He added that Good Technology has been eyeing the growth opportunities in the Philippines, particularly with the country’s adoption of mobile technology, even for businesses that are empowering their workforce. 

Anthony Tian, regional director, Good Technology APAC, added: “Organisations within the public and private sector in the Asia Pacific region, including the Philippines, are increasingly looking for solutions to support the consumerisation of IT, including managing mobile data across numerous business needs such as Secure Email, MDM and Secure Applications. This demand is being driven not only from C-suite executives, but across the board from employees who want to stay productive, whilst bringing together their business and personal mobile experiences”.

On the part of Westcon, Wilson Ho, managing director, said Good Technology is their way to serve the government sector and enterprise customers in the Philippines. 

“Good Technology is the leader in secure mobility, and delivers high quality solutions to help organisations manage sensitive mobile information in transit, over the air or at rest on a device. In the cloud or via applications, Good Technology really is the only viable option currently available to comprehensively secure iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. As mobility increasingly becomes a reality for many IT departments in Asia, a secure mobile platform is critical to ensure that sensitive business data is not compromised,” said Ho.
