eSafe unveils first ESP

1 August 2000

eSafe Technologies SA has appointed Internet Security Architects (ISA), a JSE listed EC-Hold Group company, as the first VAR to qualify for the eSafe Elect Solution Providers (eESP) VAR programme. eESPs will have access to improved pricing structures, cooperative marketing, incentives and expert support. CEO of eSafe Technologies SA, Brett Myroff, points out the necessary criteria to qualify as an eSafe ESP: "VARs need to have at least two MCSEs or CNEs employed as well as certified eSafe engineers able to provide support training on the full eSafe product set." Specialised sales training also needs to be accounted for and to qualify VARs must be in a position to offer their clients on-site support on a contract basis.
"The current security climate demands efficient back-up and there is a need among VARs to secure clients of responsive support," says Clifford Katz, MD of ISA. After attending CheckPoint courses set to promote interoperability in enterprise wide security solutions sales, ISA boasts a large concentration of certified checkpoint security instructors, engineers and administrators all able to architect, implement, support and manage large and sometimes complicated IT security environments. This is an aspect Myroff considers important as CheckPoint is closely aligned to eSafe Gateway.
Myroff stresses that the eSafe's Gateway product requires perimeter security expertise to support enterprise environments with gateway and firewall technologies in place. "eSafe ESPs must add value in solutions integration and the only way that is possible is if the engineers are actually trained on a variety of products and are familiar with the array of complicated IT integration options," he says. The additional benefits available to eSafe ESPs is set to affect both the VAR and its clients. "This enhanced partnership provides us with intensive support from eSafe and improved pricing - aspects that will have direct benefit to our clients," concludes Katz.
