ICT distributor Westcon-Comstor has signed an agreement with Zscaler to market and distribute its cloud-native security platform across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
The partnership will see the company’s EMEA go-to-market initiative, Westcon Next Generation Solutions (NGS) add the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange to its stable of cyber security solutions.

“Westcon-Comstor’s wide regional reach, along with its marketing and sales support makes it the ideal partner for Zscaler as we target growth across the region,” he adds.
“The zero trust security market is projected to grow from US$19.6-billion in 2020 to USD 51.6 billion by 2026, according to Markets & Markets”, comments Daniel Hurel, VP, Westcon EMEA – Cyber Security & Next Generation Solutions.
