Uplogix Partners with Navix Distribution to Open New South African Channel
Navix Distribution to provide Uplogix Secure Remote Management systems to channel partners in Southern Africa
London, UK – November 10, 2008 – Uplogix, the leading provider of secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced that Navix Distribution is its first distributor for South Africa and has already begun working on projects with managed service partners (MSPs), financial service companies and telecommunications operators. Johannesburg-based Navix Distribution has already completed the process of training staff and providing demonstration Uplogix appliances to its growing channel in South Africa.
“Uplogix’ Secure Remote Management platform is a unique product and fits particularly well to address many of the challenges facing organizations managing IT across Africa,” explained Fred Swanepoel, Business Development Manager for Navix. Swanepoel believes that organizations with distributed sites have traditionally struggled to remotely manage IT equipment due to a lack of onsite expertise. Instead, they have relied on dispatching technical staff by road to deal with even relatively simple issues.
“We have already signed up a managed service partner which we are now training and have similar opportunities which we are qualifying as potential Uplogix accredited resellers,” Swanepoel continued.
“The flexibility of the Uplogix appliance is very important, and its ability to connect via satellite, PSTN and GSM in the event of a network failure is critical to many of our potential customers,” added Swanepoel. Navix will initially be targeting larger corporate and multinationals in key sectors such as financial services, IT and telecom.
“Emerging markets are a major area for Uplogix and highlight how our technology delivers immediate improvements managing IT infrastructure as well as reducing costs,” comments Andy Harris, Managing Director for EMEA at Uplogix. “By working closely with innovative distributors like Navix, we are bringing the value of the Uplogix Secure Remote Management (SRM) platform to international enterprises across the most remote corners of the world.”
Uplogix provides the first fully integrated local management solution. Our co-located management appliances automate routine administration, maintenance and recovery taskssecurely and regardless of network availability. In comparison, traditional network and systems management depends on the network, uses multiple tools, and remains labor intensive.
