Cyberoam Partners With SYNNEX Corporation to Grow Presence in North American Market

SYNNEX to Become Cyberoam's Exclusive Distributor in the United States; Partnership Expands VAR and OEM Channel for Cyberoam's Identity-Based UTM Solutions

NEWBURYPORT, MA--(Marketwire - January 25, 2008) - Cyberoam, a division of Elitecore Technologies PLC and a leading innovator of identity-based Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances, today announces its partnership with SYNNEX Corporation, a leading business process services company, supporting resellers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) across the globe. Under agreed terms of the partnership, SYNNEX will become Cyberoam's exclusive distributor for the United States.

SYNNEX Corporation offers a comprehensive range of supply chain and product life cycle services to OEMs, software publishers and reseller customers worldwide. SYNNEX combines its core strengths in demand generation, IT distribution, supply chain management, contract assembly and business process outsourcing (BPO) services to provide customers with greater efficiencies in time-to-market, cost minimization, real-time linkages in the supply chain and aftermarket product support.

"The security space is moving toward next generation, identity-based solutions. Cyberoam is in a unique position as a leading provider of an identity-based UTM appliance, enabling us to offer innovative technologies to our extensive VAR audience," says Bob Stegner, Senior Vice President of Marketing, North America for SYNNEX Corporation. "We are thrilled to incorporate Cyberoam's UTM solutions into our product portfolio."

Cyberoam is a leading UTM provider that embeds user identity in the firewall rule-matching criteria, eliminating IP addresses as intermediate components to identify and control the user. This feature offers instant visibility and provides proactive insight and control over multiple aspects of the network. User identity binds the security features to create a single, consolidated Cyberoam security unit, enabling the administrator to dynamically change easy-to-configure security policies while accounting for user movement, including joiner, leaver, rise in hierarchy and more.

"The new agreement is further evidence of Cyberoam's overall growth in the North American market over the past year," said Joshua Block, Vice President of North American Operations, Cyberoam. "We are delighted to leverage SYNNEX's vast network of dedicated channel partners, aggressive distribution strategy and strong service ethic to support our ambitious growth goals for 2008."

Outside of its identity-based firewall, VPN, antivirus, anti-spam, intrusion detection and prevention, and content filtering capabilities, Cyberoam's UTM solution also includes bandwidth management and multiple link load balancing -- with all technologies delivered over a single platform, enabling enterprises across a broad spectrum of vertical markets to implement a strong, efficient and integrated security strategy. Additionally, Cyberoam's intelligent reporting and analysis allow organizations to effectively manage Internet usage, increasing the level of security, productivity and mobility while reducing the strain on internal resources.

"As an independent supplier of computer technology, we believe in strategic, long-term relationships with industry-leading technology manufacturers and providers," said Scott Fluty, President of Computer Connection of Central New York, a Cyberoam Value Added Reseller. "Incorporating SYNNEX's BPO services into our Cyberoam offering further ensures our commitment to our customers that we provide faster delivery for even the most in-demand solutions. This is a winning combination."
