DCC to distribute SonicWall

Drive Control Corporation (DCC) has been appointed an official distributor for SonicWall, a leading security solution provider that protects more than one million networks across the globe.

Available immediately to South African and SADC channel partners, DCC will be distributing SonicWall's full range of security solutions which include: firewall, cloud security, management and analytics, remote access, e-mail security, and advanced threat protection.

Ashley Lawrence, Regional Sales Senior Manager, Emerging (Markets) at SonicWall, said, "SonicWall is committed to having a strong and skilled channel that delivers the highest security efficacy with the lowest TCO. Drive Control Corporation is therefore the right addition to our channel, driving forward our strategy of expanding our SecureFirst partner network in South Africa and beyond."

"Leveraging their skilled partner base to provide SMB and Enterprise customers with a comprehensive suite of security offerings that deliver a layered approach to security, based on SonicWall's Capture Cloud Platform. DCC's reach and ability to train and support our partners, is a great match. We look forwards to working with DCC as a new distributor for the region.

Fred Mitchell, division manager: software solutions at DCC added: "Our appointment is an important step towards providing a complete security solution offering to our channel partners. We look forward to forming part of SonicWall's partner network for both SA and SADC and believe we will make significant inroads in this all-important marketplace."

Ruan du Preez, product manager for SonicWall at DCC: "SonicWall's next-generation firewall series is a tailored and diverse product offering aimed to small organisation to large enterprises. Our reseller partners will undoubtedly find a solution that meets their customers' specific security requirements."

In mid-January 2019 DCC launched a newly established professional services division, to be headed up by industry expert James Wood.

The division will focus predominately on technologies from vendors Citrix, Dell, Commvault and Symantec, "delivering critical skills, services and support to its reseller partners."

"Our Professional Services will provide an invaluable role in an industry that requires resellers to offer complete solutions, expertise and services for solutions such as SaaS, hyperconvergence and simple rack-and-stack offerings," explains Wood, head: professional services at DCC.
