Restorepoint appoints Arrow ECS in France
by Stuart Wilson, Thursday 13 April 2017
Restorepoint, a network infrastructure automation solutions provider, has appointed Arrow ECS as its distributor in France. This strategic move will accelerate market adoption of Restorepoint’s solutions for network infrastructure protection, compliance and automation that enable organisations to meet their infrastructure and security management challenges by automating key tasks, reducing the risk of outages and driving IT efficiencies.
Restorepoint already has a number of customers such as Airbus, Accor Hotels and Carrefour in France but this is the company’s first foray into the French distribution channel. Under the agreement Arrow will distribute both Restorepoint, the multi-vendor configuration backup, compliance analysis, and task automation solution, and Universal Console, its privileged access management, session recording and automation platform.
Michael Bell, director at Restorepoint commented: “When we were approached by Arrow two key advantages to working with them stood out clearly. First, they work with many of the vendors that our solutions naturally complement and have an in-depth understanding of where Restorepoint fits within the network security infrastructure mix. Second, its expertise in delivering not just solutions but also value-added professional services and first-line support was key to our decision. We believe these traits will be critical in helping us to fulfil market demand, uncover new opportunities and ultimately achieve and exceed our growth plans.
“This appointment dramatically enhances our market reach, as Arrow has the IT network knowledge and established VAR relationships to match our solutions with customer requirements. And not just at enterprise level, but also with mid-sized organisations that are struggling to manage increasingly complex networks that are supporting more users and a growing number of devices from a wide range of vendors,” Bell added.
Frederic Braut, managing director France for Arrow ECS, commented: “We are seeing increasing demand from customers and partners that want to improve their security, audit logging and automate infrastructure management – especially in organisations that are either supporting a large number of users that need privileged access or that have estates using multiple vendors."
"Restorepoint’s solutions directly address this need, helping organisations efficiently secure their network infrastructure, meet their compliance obligations and reduce the risk of suffering a network outage. The Restorepoint solutions complement and enhance our existing product range and offer a range of natural upsell opportunities for our resellers,” Braut added.
