CMS Distribution is now offering Infinidat software-defined storage architecture solutions to CMS partners and customers in the UK and Ireland. CMS says Infinidat provides a better and faster way to store and protect multiple petabytes of data, with the highest possible availability and comprehensive cyber storage resilience, all at the lowest possible cost.

Stefan Ferrari, Enterprise Solutions Manager at CMS Distribution, said: “This is a truly innovative product that tackles the challenges of traditional tier 1 storage and can be a real disruptive force with large scale storage customers who want resilient, high-performance storage.”


Exertis is partnering with Australian software-as-a-service provider CT4 to bring its data backup services to resellers across the UK. CT4, formerly Canopy Tools, offers data protection services

Exertis Cloud Services Director Rik Hubbard said: “The Cirrus Backup service forms a key part of helping our partners protect their customers’ Microsoft 365 data against accidental loss or malicious actors. The All You Can Eat value of the service makes this a simple bolt-on to any user licence.”

TD SYNNEX has added the consumer line-up of Amazon Fire TV sticks, Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers to its product offering for retailers and webstores, backed up by its range of specialist, logistics and financial services, including a Credit Elevator programme that enables partners to extend credit lines without having to re-apply for higher limits.

Ryan Thomas, Business Unit Director – Consumer Electronics at TD SYNNEX, UK, said: “There is strong and growing demand for Amazon products to be sold and supported by trusted independent retailers and this will make it easier for our partners to access and offer Amazon products and take advantage of all the value-added services TD SYNNEX offers to grow their business.”


Exertis Enterprise is bringing new levels of innovation and value to the enterprise storage market through a partnership with NGX Storage that gives businesses throughout EMEA a unified storage space of up to 20 petabytes under a single namespace, eliminating the need for multiple systems for different workloads.

With NGX, the same system can be used for multiple protocols – block, file and object – across a range of performance requirements, from demanding transactional workloads that are extremely performance- sensitive to archival applications that are highly sensitive to density and cost. NGX’s predictive analytics capabilities protect protocols from crashes and other issues through continuous automatic inspections for system errors, while the NGX Support Portal uses AI/ML to provide insights, guidance and actions to help businesses improve system availability, security and performance.

Following its recent $70 million Series C funding, AppOmni has appointed Exclusive Networks company Ignition Technology
as its first EMEA distribution partner with a remit to spearhead channel recruitment and stimulate enterprise demand for its SaaS security platform. Alongside this move, it is rolling out its INFINITY partner programme to help partners in EMEA increase their SaaS security capabilities and expertise and differentiate themselves in a crowded cybersecurity market.

Dave Risk, Country Manager UK&I at Ignition Technology, an Exclusive Networks company and security distributor for the SaaS world, said: “Global SaaS sales are predicted to reach $176 billion this year. However, many organisations lack the knowledge, skills and tools to secure these environments. This is a massive opportunity for channel partners and with AppOmni’s SaaS security solution they are well equipped to help clients fully secure their SaaS ecosystems.”


Following its acquisition by global investment firm Permira in May, email and collaboration security company Mimecast is strengthening its focus on Europe via a new distribution agreement with Exclusive Networks.

To support the partnership, Exclusive Networks is building a dedicated Mimecast team with the aim of increasing new business by more than 50% over the next two years. The agreement initially covers the UK and Ireland, the Middle East and Israel, with possible expansion into other regions in 2023.


Arrow Electronics has strengthened its security offering on Arrowsphere with the addition of data backup, business continuity, disaster recovery and threat detection solutions from Assured Data Protection, the largest Rubrik MSP and the first MSP to receive official Rubrik Authorised Support Partner accreditation.

Built on Rubrik technology, Assured products are available through a flexible capex or opex model, with full visibility via the ProtectView management platform.

Rob Mackle, Managing Director, EMEA for Assured Data Protection, said: “Our offerings not only make it easier for channel partners to provision our managed services, but also for customers to purchase services in whatever financial model works for them.”


Cybersecurity VAD e92plus is helping MSPs deliver enterprise-grade security to the mid-market profitably and at scale through a new partnership with Censornet, provider of an integrated cloud security platform that frees partners from having to juggle multiple point products by integrating web, cloud and email security with Identity and Access Management.

Censornet, which already offers MSPs easy-to-use tiering for any channel model and unlimited admin users, straightforward management, provisioning and billing, as well as security awareness training, plans to expand its MSP offering throughout Q4 and Q1 2023 in response to growing demand for managed services caused by the cybersecurity skills shortage.

Jamie Pearce, Sales Director of e92plus, said: “There is a strong demand for solutions that aren’t just cloud-native, but MSP-native. The Censornet platform is built for MSPs to help reduce their operational and management costs without compromising security, and with a range of products that can consolidate their existing toolset. The drive from VARs to build a managed service practice, or even just migrate customers to a consumption- billing model, makes Censornet the perfect addition to our portfolio.”


Cymulate, provider of a cybersecurity risk validation and exposure management platform, has appointed Exclusive Networks as its first multi-region distribution partner, following its $70m Series D funding in September. The agreement covering APAC and EMEA will enable Cymulate to scale its channel operations in those regions and raise awareness of its platform.

Denis Ferrand-Ajchenbaum, SVP Global Business Development and Ecosystems at Exclusive Networks, said: “Today, more than ever, it is imperative for organisations to have full visibility across the entire cyber kill chain to protect IT and cloud environments and safeguard critical data from attack. With the Cymulate platform seamlessly integrating with a number of our existing security vendor solutions, including XDR and SOAR systems, partners will be able to generate cross-selling opportunities within existing customer accounts to drive incremental revenues.”


Arrow Electronics has expanded its relationship with Sophos by adding its security products and services to the ArrowSphere cloud delivery and management platform and by signing a new distribution agreement with Sophos in Ireland.

The addition of a suite of API-ready products from Sophos’ business portfolio to ArrowSphere gives channel partners in the UK, France and Austria access to a choice of cybersecurity tools that can be rolled out across customers. Channel partners can also manage Sophos products in the cloud-native Sophos Central platform or via Sophos MDR, a dedicated 24/7 threat hunting, detection, investigation and response service.
