ESET expands

01 Feb 2008

Antivirus software vendor, ESET, is growing globally with products ESET Smart Security and ESET NOD32. 

Craig Johnston has recently joined the company as APAC Channel Manager, with the aim to facilitate ESET’s distributers to develop the NOD and ESET products in the Asia Pacific region and the Maldives.  Johnston is travelling heavily at the moment, and looking to establish relationships with ESET’s distributors.

The Channel caught up with Johnston during his trip to New Zealand to meet Geoff Cossey, Managing Director of Chillisoft. 

“Chillisoft is a success story for us,” lauded Johnston.  “They’re second in the world based on sales per GDP per capita. They’re doing a great job.”

Johnston has about 20 countries to cover, with a current distributor count of 14.  “Ideally, resellers and clients should be dealing with Geoff, but it’s good for them to know I am behind him for any needed support.”

Cossey believes that ESET is just scratching the surface, and sees huge opportunities in New Zealand for resellers.
