GFI Software has announced a significant expansion of the GFI OEM Partner Programme, writes Linda Endersby, allowing technology vendors to integrate its entire security and network management solutions portfolio into their products or to rebrand as their own offerings.
The firm's solutions portfolio includes malware defence, remote management, web or mail security, patch management, device management, vulnerability management and application monitoring.
OEM partners will now have access to a broad array of services, including dedicated sales, marketing, technical and business development support. Dedicated specialists collaborate with partners step-by-step by using GFI's One Plus One technology integration methodology, which includes initial project scoping, research and development, implementation and integration, sales and marketing assistance, and on-going support.
"There is no need for OEMs, ISVs or MSPs to invest their limited time and resources to develop new technologies outside their competency when [we] make it so easy to integrate our products and services into their own," said Julian Waits, vice president of GFI Software's Advanced Technology Group.
"Augmenting the capabilities of our own products has never been considered in the past, but the offering by GFI and their expertise in patch management made this decision easy for us," commented Jon Valentine, managing director of Impero Software.
"With the addition of GFI's patch management to our feature listing, we are not only able to offer a product like no other and strengthen our place in the market, but our existing customers will be very happy - which has always been our primary focus," he added.
