Starting this week, CETS will approach the makers of BitDefender and ESET Internet Security solutions as exclusive VAR / Channel Partner Suitors for its own initial Internet Security Solutions. (Channel Partners are persons or organizations that provide services or sell products on behalf of a software or hardware vendor. Value-added resellers (VARs), managed service provider (MSPss), consultants, systems integrators (SIs), original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and distributors may all be called channel partners. Many companies, including CA, Microsoft, AMD, IBM, SAP and Oracle, have formed channel partnership programs to work more closely with the distributors for their products).
PC World magazine recently ranked the two Internet Security Solution makers within the top 10 and ESET recently won CNET’s Editor’s Choice Award (April 2009) for its Internet Security Solutions packages.
It is hoped that one of the two vendors will provide mutually lucrative opportunities.
