Ericom bins Avnet, Exclusive for Computerlinks deal

Fresh from its recent signings of network monitoring outfit Gigamon and SMB network kit vendor D-Link, Computerlinks has added application access and virtualisation solutions firm Ericom to its line-up after ditching rival Citrix late last year.

Ericom itself has recently taken the decision to rationalise its distribution network, binning deals with Avnet and Exclusive Networks (formerly Arc Technology) to give Computerlinks exclusivity, according to managing director Ian Platt.

The contract gives Computerlinks exclusivity on Ericom's lines in the UK and Ireland, which will sit alongside Gigamon, Akorri, NetEx and others in its networking, security and virtualisation portfolio.

Ericom's products enables secure access to desktops and applications hosted on virtualisation platforms such as Microsoft, VMware and Xen.

It claims to have around 30,000 organisations on its books, with 7 million global installations.

Computerlinks director of new technologies and services, Dave Ellis, said: "Our partners are under increasing pressure to find profitable solutions to their clients' virtualisation needs. Ericom's products deliver the technical benefits of the bigger brands at a fraction of the cost."
