Oct. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- CounterSnipe, developers of easy to manage yet very comprehensive network security solutions, continues to expand its international channel by partnering with Proxynet Group of Nigeria to resell CounterSnipe’s network intelligence and access management based Intrusion Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS).

The move creates exciting opportunities for Proxynet’s resellers and integrators. Through them, CTOs, CISOs and security managers can now combine award-winning network security software with 24 x 7 expert sales and customer service locally. Proxynet’s channel partners will bring these solutions to SMBs and large organisations in a variety of industries, such as defence and government, healthcare and insurance, energy and utilities, financial services and the cloud services provision industries.

CounterSnipe’s IPS has evolved through the years to become one of the leading Intrusion Prevention Systems on the market delivering some unique features to benefit organizations in securing their network infrastructures. The completeness of CounterSnipe solutions enables any organization to detect, assess and defend against 1000s of security threats, while also monitoring for and imposing network usage policies.

"EMEA has been a key segment for us and we have already concluded some major contracts in Africa. We are delighted to have Proxynet as our Value Added Distributor Partner for Nigeria because of their deep understanding of the security markets and local requirements”, said Amar Rathore, CEO of CounterSnipe.

Proxynet Communications is a first choice, award winning solutions Integrator with focus on both established and emerging technologies that address current trends and issues within today's complex networking environment. The company is lead by Ozo-Onyali Ifeanyi Edward and has a dynamic team with many years of support and services experience.

“Security breaches cost organisations millions of dollars and euros in financial losses each year. Attacks such as SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting flaws can exploit thousands of network, operating system and web application-related vulnerabilities. Since 15 to 20 new vulnerabilities are identified each day, it is impossible for global IT departments to protect all assets equally without superior solutions like CounterSnipe”, said Ozo-Onyali Ifeanyi Edward, CEO of Proxynet Group. “Having tested a number of IPS systems, we were delighted to choose CounterSnipe as it offers a lot more than a simple IDS/IPS solution, we are sure our customers would be equally delighted with CounterSnipe as their choice” added Ozo-Onyali Ifeanyi Edward.

CounterSnipe systems are immediately available as software or as appliances.  Resellers interested in joining the CounterSnipe Nigeria partner program are encouraged in the first instance to contact Proxynet Group who will be delighted to provide further details about the program.
