Channel experts QBS:Alpha Gen partner with Zyxel Networks to offer more businesses the VPN and ATP firewalls they need to stay secure.
Nottingham, UK January 25th, 2021 – Value-added IT security distributor QBS:Alpha Gen (part of the QBS Technology Group) has announced a new partnership with Zyxel Networks to bring its network security portfolio to more UK businesses.
Across VPN firewalls, Unified Security Gateways and Advanced Threat Protection, Zyxel’s line-up is designed to meet the needs of smaller businesses, then effortlessly scale with optional security services including content filtering and geo-enforcement.
For QBS:Alpha Gen, the new partnership reflects a dramatic shift in the needs of small businesses to use their networks differently.
“More people than ever are working remotely or on the move,” says Dave Stevinson, Group CEO. “That’s on top of continued cloud adoption and the need to integrate services like Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services with network traffic. Smaller businesses now need the kind of network security that goes beyond a simple firewall – and Zyxel offers a flexible, cost-effective range to suit every kind of network.”
Zyxel’s network security range includes three differentiated product lines: the VPN Series, USGFLEX Series and ATP Series. Each of these product lines includes multiple hardware appliances, allowing businesses to support a handful of users or an entire distributed workforce.
The VPN Series allows customers to connect and secure a cross-group network, with centralised management and monitoring. With USGFLEX, customers get multi-layered protection against threats like malware and network intrusion. And with the ATP Series, customers can take full advantage of cloud intelligence and machine learning to protect against known and unknown threats.
Furthermore, Zyxel offers a comprehensive level of customer service and support. Beyond ease of installation and day-to-day management, Zyxel brings together threat intelligence from multiple sources, subscription services for additional features, and more.
As a result, resellers can give their customers a closer fit for their needs, ambitions and budget.
“Recruiting Alpha Gen as our Value-added Distributor is a very exciting and pinnacle part in our quest to bring enterprise security solutions to the SMB market, with the ever-changing landscape the need for a flexible and secure connection continues to grow and with the assistance of Alpha Gen knowledge base, support and cloud vision we can help all resellers ensure security levels remain optimal.” Rachel Rothwell – Regional Director at Zyxel.
