Irish distie claims top spot

Commtech buys Sentryst

Commtech is claiming to be Ireland's top security distributor following its purchase of Sentryst for an undisclosed amount.

Sentryst was spun off from reseller Entropy in 1999 and has some shareholders in common.

Conall Lavery, MD of Entropy and the largest minority shareholder in Sentryst, said: "Sentryst has operated very successfully in the Irish marketplace....However, the market fragmentation was not conducive to continued growth and it needed to partner with a like minded company."

In terms of products Commtech gains: ClearSwift, F-Secure, St Bernard, Websense and WebTrends.®
