Tech Data Corporation has joined McAfee in a distribution agreement to provide McAfee's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions to Tech Data's channel of solution providers through the company's TDCloud business unit in its Solutions Store.
"We are pleased to expand our partnership with McAfee to offer cloud-based security solutions, designed on McAfee's security connected platform, in Tech Data's Solutions Store," says Stacy Nethercoat, vice president, product marketing, software, and cloud services at Tech Data. "As part of the connected framework that delivers comprehensive security and integrated management, McAfee SaaS Security leverages the power of the cloud to help organizations realize faster time to protection to secure their business."
McAfee Software-as-a-Service offers endpoint, email, and Web security through the cloud, helping IT departments save time, effort, and costs as solution providers for their end-user customers, according to Tech Data. McAfee SaaS integrated suites protect against viruses, spyware, Web threats, and other attacks on PCs, laptops, and file servers. The McAfee Software-as-a-Service Email Protection solution features managed protection against viruses, spam, phishing, zero-day attacks, and other potential email threats—while McAfee Software-as-a-Service Email Archiving provides unlimited, in-the-cloud storage for email.
The McAfee team at Tech Data offers its channel of solution providers an enablement tool called TDCatalyst—providing customized training and resources to help partners grow their McAfee business and services. The TDCatalyst program aims to streamline the route to market process for new and existing McAfee Security Alliance (MSA) partners, while guiding the customer through all partner level stages.
