With the full suite of McAfee products available and the ability to tap into Axiz’s suite of professional services, partners can now extend the range of security services and products they bring to market.

Tumelo Mashego, Business Unit Manager at Axiz, explains that having the full range of McAfee solutions available means they can focus their efforts on ensuring their partners can have a single point of contact for all their security needs.

“At Axiz, we’re focused on the full partner journey and this is no different from the McAfee solution. We aim to take our partners through the steps of recruit, enable, grow and transform, helping them grow and expand their offerings.”

Partners can also participate in the McAfee partner programme through Axiz, giving them access to certification, promotion and training. As their status in the programme increases, they can take advantage of the benefits that these tiers offer, including greater discounts.

“In these times, security is more important than ever and companies are looking for guidance on the best way to protect themselves from the ever-increasing threats posed by cyber criminals,” she adds. “Leveraging the spectrum of McAfee solutions along with the expertise provided by our professional services team can help our partners guide their customers through these difficult times.”

The issue of skills is especially pertinent in the security field and Axiz’s experts are available to assist their partners through every element of the sales process, from pre-sales engineering through to implementation and even managed services.

“This is especially important in the small and medium business market, where our partners are focused,” adds Mashego. “This market is increasing their use of technology, especially in the area of cloud and they need to ensure that their systems are protected. With McAfee’s leading cloud security solutions, they can take full advantage of this platform without any additional risk.

“As companies move to the cloud, they’re relying on our partners to support them and the McAfee solution allows them to add security to the range of services they offer.”

A key benefit of the McAfee range is the ability to easily integrate with other products in the Axiz stable, including networking, software and other security solutions. This includes offerings from the likes of Microsoft, InfoBlox and Checkpoint.

By delivering an integrated solution to their customers, partners can increase both their share of the IT spend and their status as a trusted partner.
