Data protection solutions vendor enters the Middle East market by signing agreement with IT services heavyweight.
CommVault is making its first foray into the Middle East and North Africa by signing up IT services outfit Getronics as a regional distribution partner.
Dubai-based Getronics will develop routes-to-market for CommVault's full suite of data management solutions throughout the MENA region.
"We believe that an important way to penetrate the data protection market is by working with distributors in the local market areas," said Steven Rose, CommVault's VP EMEA.
"Through an extensive network of qualified service partners, Getronics has established a solid reputation in the Middle East and North Africa and has a full-service organisation to provide immediate local support," he added.
CommVault is confident that its tie-up with Getronics will offer it the platform it needs to display the benefits of its unified data management approach and suite of back-up, replication and storage resource management solutions.
Said Khoubbach, software sales director at Getronics Middle East, commented: "As the trend toward vendor consolidation continues, prospects are increasingly looking to work with data management specialists that possess an undiluted focus on this space. We believe that CommVault is well-positioned to meet this demand."
Getronics boasts MENA points of presence in several countries including Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Libya and Morocco.
