Intact Software Distribution expands into Africa
Leading IT security software distributor, Intact Software Distribution, has opened a local office in Nairobi, Kenya, to better service its growing African reseller base. Intact Nairobi will provide its full range of security software solutions, as well as its service performance and expertise as an experienced and highly specialised solution provider.
Simon Campbell-Young, CEO of Intact, says this expansion into East Africa is part of the distributor’s ongoing growth strategy. “Kenya is a rich and exciting economy and is very much under-represented in terms of security tools and solutions.”
He adds that the move is a strategic one, as offices in Nairobi will be perfectly placed to service the region as a whole. Intact provides a focused approach to support and technical knowledge transfer in association with the channel, and in Kenya, will be working through several partners who will supply end users and businesses.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our footprint into Africa. The market has shown continued maturity towards security tools and solutions, and Intact is focused on customer satisfaction, and will use its best-in-class solutions to meet clients’ needs and requirements,” Campbell-Young says.
“Intact is investing in the region, and offering a complete service to its channel partners as well as end users. Nairobi is highly advanced, well developed, and one of the most connected cities on the continent.”
Intact has hired Nathan Wohoro to run the Kenyan operations. He has many years’ experience in the local market, and boasts an in-depth knowledge of both the market and of security solutions. He will be responsible for overseeing business development, and will work closely with local Intact partners and end-users throughout Kenya, and the region as a whole.
Intact Software Distribution will be offering its full range of products, including Avira, Bitdefender, F-Secure, Kaspersky Lab, Avast, Iron Tree, Group IB, and Cybonet.
