Boost for value added resellers

Value added resellers could benefit greatly as smaller companies become more aware of internet security and adopt firewall technologies, analyst group Frost & Sullivan has found.

‘Resellers and ISPs could become primary distribution channels as interest in the firewall market expands,’ said Jose Lopez of Frost & Sullivan.

‘Vendors will improve on ease-of-use and implementation into other interfaces.’

Formerly a technology used solely to control, authenticate, log, and segment local area networks to a multitude of services, firewalls are deployed to protect computer networks from insecure networks, such as the internet.

Richard Saunders, a spokesman for firewall specialist Symantec, said VARs had recognised the potential of the SME market. ‘SMEs have realised firewalls are as important as anti-virus applications,’ he said.
