Wednesday, April 3, 2013 – Bucharest, Romania and Bothell, Washington– Bitdefender, the award-winning provider of innovative security solutions, has signed an expanded distribution deal with Rain Networks, a value-added IT security distributor and service provider. The agreement supports Rain Networks’ growth in the enterprise channel market, and increases the availability ofBitdefender enterprise solutions, particularly Cloud Security for Endpoints. Rain Networks will also support sales of Security for Virtualized Environments and GravityZone to its reseller base. The expanded relationship follows after Rain Networks extensively tested and evaluated Bitdefender’s enterprise solutions.
“With a growing base of resellers moving into cloud and virtualization technologies, it was imperative that we investigated the best options for our customers. We are experts in the area of security solutions, and we focus on providing only the top ones on the market,” said Robert Siemons, CEO of Rain Networks. “Bitdefender consistently leads many of the independent tests, and through our own comparatives we have been thoroughly impressed with the outstanding performance of all the Bitdefender enterprise solutions. Cloud Security for Endpoints by Bitdefender impressed us so much that it is our exclusive cloud security offering for our resellers, because others don’t even come close.”
Cloud Security for Endpoints provides Rain Networks with a new and exciting proposition for cloud service providers and resellers. Rain Networks will support the channel with opportunities to be educated on all Bitdefender enterprise solutions and assist in helping resellers deliver the most current protection available.
“The expansion of our relationship with Rain Networks is happening at an important time, as businesses evaluate and migrate to cloud computing and virtualization technologies,” said Shaun Donaldson, Director of Strategic Alliances at Bitdefender. “Our enterprise solutions are designed to give organizations a sophisticated, cost-effective security solution that defeat threats, and deliver performance. Other cloud and virtualization security solutions that follow a more traditional structure can’t deliver that kind of advantage.”
Siemons added, “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Bitdefender, and to deliver leading security technology to the channel. We have extensive experience in bringing the top security technology to the market, and given how Bitdefender consistently places in top position, it’s hard to overlook this great value proposition for our resellers.”
