Defis & Strategies signs distribution agreement with Sweden's Clavister
Defis & Strategies provides services for businesses in the West African nations of Burkina Faso, Togo, Senegal, Congo, Cameroon and Ghana. Under the terms of the distribution agreement, the company will sell and distribute Clavister’s Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) and gateway security solutions, eventually offering its customers all of Clavister's products.
"The African continent is currently encountering many security challenges and, as a result, our customers are becoming increasingly security conscious,” Mahoula Dosso, director of projects and internal control for Defis & Strategies, said. "As a result, we are seeing high demand for cyber-security solutions, in particular NGFWs and the quality of the Clavister solution and level of support that they offer really impressed us. We are confident that this partnership will prove to be beneficial for all parties concerned and excited to start delivering Clavister’s solutions to the market.”
Defis & Strategies will also offer Clavister's products through its Ivory Coast-based partner company ELETECH-PRO, a technology solutions consulting business.
"We had recognized that the African cyber-security market is really set to take off in the next five years and had identified that we had to look to increase our presence in the region as soon as possible to position ourselves at the forefront of the market,” Stephan Schmidt, sales director for Clavister, said. "With Defis & Strategies, we have definitely found a partner that matches all of our expectations, and are looking forward to working with them to ensure this partnership is a success."
