F-Secure appoints Beta Distribution as a UK distributor of security solutions for corporate resellers

Buckinghamshire, UK – 14th February 2018: Global cyber security company F-Secure today announces the appointment of Beta Distribution as a UK distributor for corporate resellers. Beta Distribution, Headquartered in London and with offices throughout the UK, is a specialist product, services and solutions IT distributor which serves over 3,000 resellers across the UK, including over 150 Managed Services Providers. Beta Distribution’s Technology Solutions division will act as a “Project Distributor” for F-Secure’s award-winning products, focusing on larger projects via selected managed service partners and other resellers.

F-Secure’s IT security products are renowned for their consistent high performance in threat detection, prevention and response, including protection against the latest ransomware attacks.

F-Secure’s product portfolio covers the core endpoint IT security requirements of organisations from the smallest up to those of 10,000 users and above, and helps organisations comply with GDPR regulations as well as defend against the latest IT security threats to devices including laptops, workstations, servers and mobile devices. The appointment of Beta Distribution as a distributor opens new opportunities for customers across the UK to explore and benefit from F-Secure’s “Live Security”* strategy.

Keith Maskell, country sales manager, UK & Ireland, for F-Secure, said: “As with our established UK distributor, Prianto Ltd., the capability of Beta Distribution to provide strong technical support to its partners was a key factor for us in going ahead with this new distributor appointment.  The F-Secure product range and roadmap has expanded greatly following major investments and we are excited to work with Beta Distribution to further expand our support and offerings to new partners and customers.”

Tony Howard, Head of Enterprise Strategy at Beta Distribution, added: “We are very excited about the opportunity to bring F-Secure’s IT security products and services to our partners and this allows us to add Cyber Security to the Solutions and projects we are delivering.
