CMS Distribution, the independent value-added distributor, has been appointed the Irish and UK distributor for AVG Business security solutions. CMS Distribution will provide the AVG Business product portfolio, including AVG’s full line of cloud security and remote monitoring and management (RMM) solutions for SMEs, directly to its network of partners.
“Last year, CMS Distribution started building a comprehensive security portfolio. As the market moves towards mobility and cloud technologies and there is an ever growing importance for data security, a partnership with a leading cloud security brand as AVG made total sense for us,” said Justin Griffiths, group director, Software Solutions at CMS Distribution.
“With a base of more than 3,000 channel partners, including the top VARs in the UK, CMS Distribution not only shares our commitment to helping businesses prioritise security, but brings the go-to-market capabilities to sell our full stack of AVG Business cloud security and managed services solutions. We are looking forward to working together to deliver impressive results,” said Fred Gerritse, general manager, AVG Technologies.
“AVG Technologies has aggressive goals this year to drive even greater value for our channel partners and their end customers. High on our list is a smart distribution model to give our partners the flexibility to buy our solutions direct from a distributor and help maximise their growth. We chose CMS Distribution as the strong partner to help us put this vision into motion in the UK and Europe,” said Gerritse.
“We believe that CMS Distribution is in a strong position to help AVG Business exceed their goals as well as deliver new market leading security technologies to our partners,” said Simon Carr, Security Product Manager at CMS Distribution.
