Global technology distributor Avnet Technology Solutions has been chosen as Veritas's authorised distributor for Australia.
Avnet partners with Veritas in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific and will now be able to offer Australian partners the same solutions for data collection, protection and data analysis.
Darren Adams, vice president and general manager at Avnet Technology Solutions Australia and New Zealand said that Veritas aligned with Avnet's solutions specialist strategy.
In August 2016, the distributor announced it had dedicated more than 450 solutions specialists to empower the channel to capitalise on cloud, cognitive computing, data analytics, internet of things, mobility, security and enterprise networking.
"The relationship with Veritas further enables Avnet to drive scale and profitability for our partners whilst helping end customers accelerate digital transformations within their organizations," Adams said.
Janet Docherty, Veritas channel director for the Pacific Region, said: "Avnet brings significant value to the Australian channel with its robust know-how in business development, partner enablement and presales expertise.
"We are confident this comprehensive distribution mix will further add value across the breadth of services for both existing and new partners."
Avnet becomes Veritas' second distributor for Australia, joining Dicker Data, who became a distributor in August 2015.
