Security deal for Northamber

Unified Threat Management mmm...isn't it?

God box maker Astaro has done a distribution deal with Northamber.

God boxes are also known, less snappily, as unified threat management appliances. They're firewalls, VPNs, intrusion protection, anti-virus and spam filters and content checkers all in one.

Astaro's channel manager Andre Scheffknecht said: "There has been great interest in our solutions in the UK from SMEs, but, with a one-tier indirect model, we simply didn’t have the capacity to respond." Northamber said it had already received calls from interested resellers.

IDC predicts the market for God boxes will grow at 80 per cent a year from 2003 to 2008.®
