Foursys adds trio of security vendors to line-up

Business partnership tree puzzles

Security reseller Foursys has taken on three new vendors as it plans to grow its business over the next year.

It has signed up Secunia, which provides vulnerability management through application and operating system patching, two-factor authentication provider SecurEnvoy, and Rapid7, which offers security data and analytics software and services.

The three new vendors join Foursys’ existing vendors Sophos, Clearswift, Websense and Forescout.

James Miller, Foursys managing director, says the additional technology vendors were selected based on their technical merits.

“We always select new technology partners that have a specific channel focus, that can partner with us to provide a strong, complementary fit with our existing security portfolio and who can ultimately add value for our current clients,” he says.

Adam Bruce, Northern Europe channel manager at SecurEnvoy describes Foursys as “a good fit”, pointing to the VAR’s close relationship with Sophos, “as our technology integrates closely with both the Sophos Safeguard and UTM products.

For Secunia, the deal extends the vendor’s footprint in the UK and Ireland: “We are delighted to be working with Foursys as a technically advanced and customer-centric security VAR, and we look forward to adding new value to their existing client service offerings,” comments Victoria Bentham, Secunia’s UK regional director.

“We are delighted to partner with Foursys,” adds Rob Attree, EMEA sales director for Rapid7. “The company has a proven record of bringing impactful security solutions to market to help their customers implement effective security programmes.”

A year after its directors completed a management buy-out of the company, Foursys has moved its headquarters from Cambridge to new premises in Bury St Edmunds, offering a threefold increase in office space.

The 15 new jobs at the firm are being created to cover a range of roles in security consulting, support, sales and administration.
