We address the growing amount of threats to networks with products from leading security manufacturers,” said Leigh Howard from Westcon Group. "Vasco is complementary to the existing vendors within our security practice and allows us to design and offer complete end to end security solutions to our extensive reseller base across the ANZ market".

Westcon and Datastor (Westcon’s New Zealand Business), will offer Vasco’s enterprise Digipass range, Digipass for Mobile, SMS Software, Plug-in Server Software, Identikey and the aXsGuard appliances to resellers.

Jan Valcke, President and COO of Vasco Data Security, added, “Since Westcon Australia is a leading distributor of security solutions, we couldn’t choose a better partner for the Australian and New Zealand markets. We are confident that our collaboration with Westcon Australia and New Zealand will help our company to expand its reach.”
