Espion Distribution plays match-maker for Irish IT Security and Networking Resellers

Espion Distribution hosts resellers at new office with a novel speed dating event

Over 20 of Ireland’s IT security and networking resellers participated in a speed dating event organised by Espion Distribution, Ireland’s specialist security and networking technologies distributor, to mark the opening of Espion Distribution’s new offices in Deansgrange.

“Our resellers are looking for solutions that will allow their end users save them time and money while securing and enabling their businesses,” said Jim Lehane, sales director with Espion Distribution. “Our vendors deliver competitive solutions that truly add value. Speed dating was the ideal means of getting these two groups together.”

Resellers moved from one vendor to the next, as the highly interactive sessions were limited to 45 minutes – resulting in a fast paced exchange that worked far better than one-sided presentations. The resellers were grouped based on their particular interests, allowing for the vendors to tailor the subject matter.

Resellers found the event extremely beneficial and the format highly productive, with a number of follow up product evaluations, customer site visits and follow-on meetings already scheduled for the coming weeks.

“This has been great; we have a commitment to our customers to continually investigate new technologies that will help them address their greatest challenges,” said Neil Stone-Wigg, Chief Technology Officer at IT Focus, “We were already familiar with some of these technologies before the event, but getting to talk to the experts and hearing from fellow resellers, we have a greater appreciation for how technologies can be applied. We have also had a first look at some solutions that are new to us – we are excited about adding them to our portfolio”

The vendors involved all have a range of innovative smart solutions that offer significant value and start generating a return on investment as soon as they are deployed. Fortinet is the pioneer and world’s leading provider of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security systems that enable secure business communications and deliver the best security, performance and total cost of ownership available. Riverbed provides the only comprehensive WAN optimisation solution to a host of severe problems that have effectively prevented enterprises from sharing applications and data across wide areas. VASCO is the number one supplier of strong authentication and e-signature solutions and services, committed to providing organisations with an array of authentication solutions and services at the lowest total cost of ownership.

Espion Distribution recently moved to a new larger facility in Deansgrange. The new location provides an ideal venue for supporting a growing network of resellers and includes training facilities, stocking capacity and an optimal space to bring together vendors and resellers together at events such as this.
