Sentronics changes name, scores Cisco partnership

August 2013 News

Following its recent merger with Comztek, Westcon Comztek has announced that as part of a bid to restructure and streamline its business practices, the Sentronics business will now form part of Westcon Security Solutions – Electronic, a division of the Westcon Security Solutions Business Practice.

“We do not foresee any impact to our business or to our resellers as a result of the name change, it is merely a logistical switch over our partners and customers were already aware was going to happen,” says Bernard Senekal, MD at Westcon Security Solutions - Electronic.

“Where we do foresee an impact on our partners is through the access they will now have to a more extensive product line-up as well as a range of solutions such as the Cisco Physical Security range, for which we have recently been appointed a partner,” he adds.

The Cisco Physical Security Solutions are made up of video surveillance, access control, and incident response and notification technologies. The portfolio is touted as being easy to deploy, use and maintain and integrate seamlessly with a client’s existing Cisco IP network.

The technologies support open standards and to this end will enable resellers to assist their customers to protect their existing investments as they migrate their businesses.

“When making use of the Cisco Physical Security Solutions your customer can use the network as an open, scalable platform to integrate their security requirements. The benefits of this include operational flexibility, greater protection capabilities, lower cost of ownership and ultimately reduces the business risk associated to the incorporation of new technologies,” adds Senekal.

The Westcon Security Solutions - Electronic division provides Westcon’s resellers access to fully integrated, end-to-end enterprise solutions by way of a single management platform. Its current range of offerings include products such as CCTV solutions that are made up of cameras, recording, optics and associated accessories; access control hardware; and storage solutions; all of which are inclusive of hardware and software offerings.
