At the Astaro Asia Pacific Partner Conference held in Langkawi, Malaysia between 1-3 June 2011 NETsolutions was awarded the Best Premier Security Partner for the Asia Pacific region.
In recognising the contribution made by NETsolutions in Thailand, Norbert Kiss, Astaro Vice President for Asia Pacific, praised NETsolutions commitment to Astaro and the professional, knowledgeable approach to deploying Astaro solutions.
During the Conference partners learnt from Jan Hichert, the CEO of Astaro, about the details of the purchase of Astaro by Sophos and the changes and benefits that the purchase would bring to Astaro. Stuart Fisher, Vice President APAC and Clarence Chua, Director of Sales for Sophos both attended the conference and contributed sessions. Management believes that the joining of Astaro with Sophos will bring two leading complementary security portfolios together to deliver coordinated protection and policy between endpoint and network. By combining policy, security filtering and information known at the endpoint with the network, Sophos will be able to provide improved security and visibility along with integrated management and reporting.
With the imminent release of Astaro Security Gateway v8.2 technical training was provided at the Conference and NETsolutions had two engineers attend this training.
