SYNNEX Secure Networking Announces Key Cloud Enablement Collaborations

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

SYNNEX Corporation, a leading business process services company, announced a comprehensive strategy for its advanced technologies business. By embracing transformational cloud and managed service platforms in recent years, SYNNEX has helped resellers operationalize new business models, identify new growth opportunities, and achieve differentiation and innovation, and the company's new strategy enhances this work.

SYNNEX' strategy includes new and enhanced offerings from leading vendors Aerohive Networks and Symantec Corporation, and an expanded distribution agreement with F5 Networks. Together, their offerings extend SYNNEX' advanced technologies line card and introduce more opportunities for resellers to grow their business.

In response to evolving end-user demands and security's central role in effective cloud and managed services platforms, the SYNNEX Secure Networking Group delivers a comprehensive, end-to-end portfolio of advanced technology solutions, services, and support. Two key cloud innovations and a new major distribution agreement enhance SYNNEX' advanced technologies portfolio, addressing growing customer demands for secure technological innovation.

SYNNEX Aerohive Wireless-as-a-Service

SYNNEX is taking network connectivity, and Aerohive's HiveManager NG Wireless-as-a-Service (WaaS) offering, to the next level with new availability through the SYNNEX CLOUDSolv Marketplace. Orders placed on the self-serve CLOUDSolv platform now automatically activate the network, decreasing time to market, while increasing the resellers' service-level agreements with their customers. Resellers have a convenient single interface to track their SYNNEX invoices, organized by each individually managed environment.

Aerohive HiveManager NG goes beyond basic connectivity. This next-generation management software harnesses the power of a cloud platform, delivering data insights that can lead to new revenue streams. Resellers can now extend beyond basic WiFi to offer game-changing services management, support, design, and more to end customers.

"Aerohive is excited to be working with SYNNEX to enable partners to quickly move to managed services," said Michael O'Brien, vice president, global channels, Aerohive Networks. "By leveraging SYNNEX' portfolio of services, Aerohive is now able to offer an OPEX-based Wireless-as-a-Service solution, which addresses the needs of partners and end-users for capital light solutions. SYNNEX' class-leading CLOUDSolv platform means our partners can quote and sell a managed service offering with just a few clicks. We couldn't be more thrilled about our choice in selecting SYNNEX as our distribution partner to bring these dynamic services to market."

Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud (SEP Cloud)

SYNNEX Secure Networking Group is pleased to offer Symantec's enterprise-grade cloud security which Managed Service Providers can now access and manage through the CLOUDSolv Marketplace. Symantec Endpoint Protection Cloud is an easy to use security-as-a-service solution that protects and manages PC, Mac, mobile devices, and servers through a single console, making it the ideal solution for organizations with limited IT security resources.

  • SEP Cloud protects against today's ransomware, zero-day threats and other sophisticated attacks using advanced multi-layered technologies including advanced machine learning and behavior analysis.

  • SEP Cloud offers flexible billing options from the SYNNEX CLOUDSolv Marketplace, including monthly, annual, device-only, and encryption management, which enhance the value and accessibility of SEP Cloud.

F5 Networks Distribution Agreement

SYNNEX Secure Networking Group is pleased to announce its major vendor partnership with industry leader F5 Networks.

SYNNEX' capabilities around strategic cloud offerings, partner enablement and management, and ability to drive multi-vendor portfolio attachments provided compelling reasons for leading application delivery and security vendor F5 Networks to add SYNNEX to their distribution network. As a result, SYNNEX is expanding its extensive solutions through F5's comprehensive cloud-focused and security offerings to its partner base, in addition to introducing a new suite of enablement tools for current F5 Networks partners.
