ComGuard, a part of Spectrum Group, Dubai, and value added distributor (VAD) of global leading networking and security products across Middle East and Africa, announces its entry into the Indian market.
As most of the sectors are performing well in India, the market opportunity for IT security and networking is really huge, which can go upto multi billion dollars but there is a paucity of VADs to address the whole market, therefore there is a natural gap. ComGuard being a leading player in this space can actually explore the opportunity and help the market to grow faster. To start with ComGuard will focus on enterprises and education markets and introduce global brands for networking and security products to cater to this market.
Ajay Singh Chauhan, CEO, Spectrum Group said, “After having strong presence in Middle-East and African countries, we are focusing now on Indian IT security market. Indian IT security industry is moving strongly, and is expected to continue scoring solid growth in near future. With the robust growth of India’s emerging SMB segment, the demand for IT security solutions will go a long way. We as a VAD will hand hold the partners to make a transition from their traditional business to the emerging business.”
Speaking on the occasion, George Jason, Vice President, ComGuard said, “India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and will be for the foreseeable future. Our objective for the Indian market would be to mirror the success of our other regions. Our focus would be to build a well informed eco-system amongst our partners and our clients. This would add immense value to all involved.”
He further added, “ComGuard in India wants to emerge as a niche network and security technology distributor. With a product portfolio that is studded with world class vendors like Acunetix, Array Networks, BlueCatNetworks, Beyond Trust, Brovis, EC Council, Infowatch, iolo, MeruNet-works and Seclore. ComGuard has supported project requirements of leading enterprises in the region. Leveraging on in-house technical support resources and strong channel support, ComGuard has been recognised for its dedicated and sustained efforts to add value to its distribution role.”
“We are targeting the enterprises and education markets as currently in India there are very few value added distributor in these areas” said George Jason.
As a VAD, ComGuard has raised the standards in value added distribution in the regions and was awarded as the best overall partner in 2008 by Kaspersky Labs for its innovative promotional campaigns, channel initiatives, technical support and effective training programs for resellers and customers. With proven strategies and market success, the company has grown significantly with high sales turnover, team strengths and strong channel network.
