Continuing to expand its growing vendor portfolio, Alpha Generation Distribution becomes a UK distributor for Hexis’ NetBeat product line

Nottingham, UK January 7, 2015 – Proactive IT security distributor Alpha Generation Distribution has become a UK distributor for Hexis Cyber Solutions’ ( NetBeat NAC and NetBeat MON product lines. Under this new agreement, Alpha Generation will use its specialist experience in IT security to extend Hexis’ market penetration through the UK channel.

For partners and resellers, this presents a lucrative new revenue stream with a vendor whose products are easy-to-use and perfectly timed for the market.

“We have been impressed by Hexis’ NetBeat solutions and how well-suited they are for small to mid-sized companies and enterprises with multiple remote locations,” says Chris Walsh, Sales Director at Alpha Generation. “The company’s network access control and network monitoring solutions are fully-featured yet cost-effective, giving end-users granular control over their security. I believe that, with the proliferation of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD), now is the ideal time to welcome Hexis to the channel.”

While network access control (NAC) is not a new approach to security, the market is experiencing a resurgence due to the evolving IT and threat landscape. The growth of BYOD sees large volumes of unapproved, ungoverned devices entering the work environment. In fact, according to SANS, over 80 percent of successful exploitation happens from the inside, behind a firewall. As a result, traditional perimeter protection on a network is no longer enough to keep it secure.

BYOD has driven demand for a suitable way to block access to unapproved devices quickly and easily, and Hexis’ NetBeat NAC provides this functionality at a cost-effective price point.

NetBeat MON is an easy-to-use, multi-functional monitoring and analysis appliance pre-configured with packet capture, packet analysis, IDS/IPS and flow monitoring. With centralised monitoring and management, NetBeat MON enables IT professionals to make more informed network monitoring and diagnostics decisions quickly, without adding unnecessary cost and complexity.

“We selected Alpha Generation as our UK distribution partner for their insight into the channel and their expertise in the industry,” says Bernard Girbal, VP and GM of NetBeat Product Lines, Hexis Cyber Solutions. “As we move forward, Alpha Generation will play a key role in growing and supporting partners in a rapidly changing market.”

Alpha Generation’s new partnership with Hexis is part of the company’s wider growth strategy. This considered approach focuses on the needs of resellers and their end-users, allowing the company to grow while maintaining its reputation for personal support and service.

“We shouldn’t need to recruit new partners all the time,” adds Alpha Generation’s Walsh. “Instead, we select vendors with the products that address issues our partners raise. In that way, we remain focused on identifying genuine demand in the channel, then giving resellers the appropriate solutions to capitalise on it.”
