The partnership between Tech Access and Argus will enable the pair to enhance the Solaris operating system, creating a secure foundation for e-business.
Tech Access, Sun Microsystems’ Data Centre Enterprise Country Reseller for the Middle East, and Argus Systems Group, a maker of security software have described their recent partnership as “a match made in heaven.”
The security solutions that Argus will bring to the Tech Access solutions machine will enable the pair to create enhancements to the Solaris operating system, which will create what the companies described as “an operating system on steroids.”
According to Omar Qawas, sales manager for the UK and MEA at Argus, the activities in which Tech Access is involved in the e-commerce and e-business space, make the partnership between the companies ideal.
“Our technology in a nutshell, is designed to secure those infrastructures, by providing a secure foundation. What we coin as open security, that is the ability to prevent intrusion into systems before they actually happen, using trusted operating system technology,” said Qawas.
Tech Access will look for resellers across the region to promote its muscle-bound Solaris version, according to Tim Carlson, chief technical officer for the firm.
“It makes sense that these resellers are geared up to be Sun resellers—basic hardware and software—[but] indirectly, our resellers will be Argus resellers. It will add to our portfolio and our wealth of offerings to give to these people,” he said.
