DCC becomes sole Symantec distributor for South Africa

Fred Mitchell.

Drive Control Corporation (DCC) has been appointed the sole distributor for Symantec’s entire range of security solutions to the South Africa channel. In addition, the distributor will now also be distributing Symantec into the SADC region.

The sole distribution appointment is indicative of the success of partnership and a feather in DCC’s cap. DCC has won multiple Symantec Distributor of the Year awards over the years.

“Our appointment as sole distributor of Symantec in SA and our growth in the security space in SADC speak volumes of our partnership which has stood the test of time. We’ve fostered a noteworthy relationship over the years and look forward to this next, exciting phase in our business partnership,” says Fred Mitchell, software solutions division head at DCC.

DCC has a strong footprint in the SADC region and the appointment will undoubtedly see Symantec’s growth in the region go from strength to strength. The distributor has dedicated offices in most of the SADC countries, and a strong SADC-focussed team based at its head office in Johannesburg.

Symantec, by Broadcom Software, offers solutions in various security technologies for the endpoint, DLP, Web protection (WPS, encryption and many others). It is also rated at the top of endpoint protection tests across all platforms, Windows, MacOS, and mobile.
