Ingram Micro offers its global network of service providers access to OPAQ’s cloud platform
OPAQ, the network security cloud company, and Ingram Micro, the world’s leading technology and supply chain service provider, announced a global distribution agreement for the OPAQ cloud platform.
As part of the agreement, Ingram Micro and Cloud Harmonics, an Ingram Micro company, will offer its vast global network of service providers, including VARs, MSPs and MSSPs access to the OPAQ cloud platform.
Available now, OPAQ’s cloud platform is purpose-built for delivering Fortune 100-grade network security-as-a-service and hyperscale performance to organizations large and small.
Recognized as one of CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors, OPAQ is a game changer for organizations that need advanced network security, but struggle to acquire, staff and manage best-of-breed tools.
OPAQ invented and patented a new approach that delivers Fortune-100 security-as-a-service from the cloud to protect an organization’s entire IT footprint including on and off premise endpoints, mobile devices, IoT, dynamic multi-cloud architectures, branch offices, and legacy platforms.
The OPAQ Cloud enables solution providers to deliver robust network security services in a simple, cost-effective and flexible way to their customers, and to centrally manage them from a single cloud console.
“OPAQ expands our solutions portfolio, providing our channel partners with an enterprise grade security solution that is consumed as a service, and extends from the core to the edge,” said Eric Kohl, vice president, security, Ingram Micro.
“Today’s solution providers and MSPs demand easy to use and effective tools to secure their customers’ networks. We are pleased to bring OPAQ to market with Cloud Harmonics, an Ingram Micro company, to bring new and emerging security technologies to our channel partners.”
“Ingram Micro’s global footprint and deep resources are making the OPAQ Cloud accessible overnight to service providers in the world’s top markets,” said Glenn C. Hazard, Chairman & CEO of OPAQ.
“This strategic alliance gives Ingram Micro solution providers access to a fully integrated security-as-a-service platform designed to deliver enterprise-grade protection for any size customer without investing in security infrastructure. With the OPAQ cloud platform, solution providers can deliver high-demand, differentiated services and accelerate revenue growth.
