DeviceLock Inc., a worldwide provider of Data Link Prevention (DLP) software, announced on Tuesday that a deal has been made with COMPUTERLINKS, a distribution company of IT security and Internet technology products and services, in order to begin distributing its DLP software in North America.
"As our business in North America continues to accelerate, we're looking to COMPUTERLINKS to help us identify, recruit and train a very focused network of IT security-specialized VARs," Vladimir Chernavsky, executive vice president of DeviceLock’s American operations, said in a statement carried on Yahoo. "As an enterprise DLP solution, we intend to scale our business by focusing on regional VARs who are thoroughly trained and competent in the area of IT security. COMPUTERLINKS knows these kinds of resellers, and has a very successful track record in that regard."
DeviceLock is on more than four million computers around the world.
This new agreement will allow various financial institutions, state and federal government agencies, healthcare providers, and many other corporations in North America to protect secure information from the wrong hands.
This news comes a month after it was announced that the Endpoint DLP Suite was successful in receiving certification for Windows 8 and VMware.
"DeviceLock offers COMPUTERLINKS a great opportunity to benefit from participation in the hottest market within IT security," said Russell Zientek, president of COMPUTERLINKS North America. "DeviceLock's Endpoint DLP Suite was reviewed by SC Magazine in August and was given the highest possible 5-star rating in every single category. No other vendor scored higher. So, we're excited to add DeviceLock to our line-up of industry-leading IT security products."
COMPUTERLINKS is based in Austin, Texas, and has branches in 18 countries.
