Dicker Data has been named Trend Micro's fourth distributor in Australia.
Dicker joins Avnet, Ingram Micro and Rhipe and will offer the security software vendor's entire portfolio in the region.
David Dicker, chairman and chief executive at Dicker Data, said: "We’re pleased to be announcing our new partnership with Trend Micro. The market for security products in Australia continues to grow as the threat landscape evolves and changes.
"With many globally recognised companies experiencing security breaches in 2016, it has further driven the awareness and need amongst organisations of all sizes to ensure their security practices are best-in-class."
The partnership will see a collaboration with a channel-focused portfolio of enterprise, medium and small business security solutions.
Trend Micro's solutions will strengthen the distributor's security line-up, according to Dicker Data. Dicker Data's portfolio currently includes RSA, Symantec and Trustwave. The distributor also offers security appliances from Citrix and Cisco and a Forefront product offering with Microsoft.
Indi Siriniwasa, enterprise sales and channel director for Trend Micro Australia and New Zealand, said: "Following a year of double-digit growth in 2016, Trend Micro is looking to further invest and expand in Australia this year, and our relationship with Dicker Data is a key part of that overall growth strategy. Expanding our channel focus to reach more mid-market and enterprise customers with Dicker Data will help us accelerate growth in 2017."
