SecureData Africa, part of JSE-listed SecureData Holdings, has been appointed by Blue Coat System, the leading provider of business assurance technology, as a Value-Added Distributor for the sub-Saharan African region. This partnership brings Blue Coat’s portfolio of security and networking products, including its leading Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution and patented optimisation technologies, to some of the most security-minded markets in the world.
Blue Coat has built a product portfolio targeted to meet the stringent requirements of enterprises and governments. SecureData Africa’s appointment will allow customers in sectors such as finance, utilities and the public sector to enjoy world-class protection at a time of heightened security.
Wayne Olsen, chief technology officer at SecureData Africa is excited about the new technology the partnership will bring to SecureData’s solutions offering.
In addition to leading web and mobile security, WAN optimisation, and asymmetric acceleration technology, Olsen believes Blue Coat’s CacheFlow appliances, which provide advanced caching technology, will prove a key differentiator on a continent still struggling with the high cost of bandwidth.
“In addition to achieving a rapid return on investment (ROI) based on bandwidth and backhaul savings, caching appliances speed-up page load and download times by positioning content closer to the users, reducing upstream congestion, and eliminating extra ‘hops’ between the user and the origin server,” Olsen explains.
