Ciphertex Enters Into National Distribution Agreement With D&H to Distribute Portable Data Storage

CHATSWORTH, CA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2011) - Ciphertex Data Security, a global provider of portable RAID and network attached storage (NAS) systems for the SMB market, has strengthened its distribution network in the U.S. by entering into a distribution agreement with D&H as its national distributor.

D&H, a leading IT solutions distribution company, has signed a distribution agreement with Ciphertex, a global supplier of sophisticated portable data storage solutions for enterprise and SMB customers.

According to the agreement, D&H will market Ciphertex's range of products and provide an expert technical team to assist resellers with product demonstrations and after sales support. The partnership enables Ciphertex to address the market's IT storage needs through a national footprint.

"We are excited to enter into an agreement with a technology leader like Ciphertex, who will help us bring the best selection of IT storage solutions to our resellers," said Michael Schwab, co-president at D&H. "There's an urgent need for reliable, robust and secure storage in today's business environment, especially in the area of the mobile data protection, since wireless devices continue to play a greater role in corporate networking. Ciphertex's line of NAS devices, fully redundant RAIDs and single external drives will help address that demand for our customer base.

"We plan to promote Ciphertex products through our extensive value added reseller (VAR) network, offering strong benefits such as accessible pricing, hands-on sales consultation and superior after-sales support," added Schwab.
