Arrow ECS inks new distie agreement with Sophos in NZ

Network and endpoint security company Sophos has announced a new distribution arrangement with Arrow ECS in New Zealand.

It marks the vendor's third distribution company in the country, with Arrow ECS joining Exeed and SnapperNet.

The agreement is an extension of a similar arrangement between Sophos and Arrow ECS in Australia.

With this appointment, Sophos says it will be able to expand its range of go-to-market strategies for partners and customers in the market.

Sophos channel director of Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Jon Fox says, “New Zealand is a key market for Sophos and I am pleased to be able to support the local businesses with this investment.

“Arrow has a track record of success, thanks to its local knowledge and commitment to great service. Arrow has proven itself to be a valued partner for trans-Tasman customers and we are looking forward to further success working together.”

Previously known as Distribution Central (until it was acquired in 2016), the A/NZ arm of Arrow ECS has been operating since 2004.

In March, the company released a list of things it wanted the A/NZ channel space to take note of, including - as the company describes -  its proficiency in IoT as well as its ability to help businesses achieve value recovery through sustainable IT solutions.

It currently holds a vendor portfolio across four steams - Cloud, Data Centre, Mobility and Security & performance - that includes HPE, AWS, Microsoft, IBM, NetApp, Equinix, Aruba, Riverbed and Symantec (amongst others).

Its new NZ distribution arrangement with Sophos is effective as of May 1, 2018.
