Westcon Group To Offer Secos Security Products


Secos inked a deal with Westcon Group to distribute its SecoShield intrusion-detection system and SecoSpider enterprise security management software.

Under the agreement, Westcon Group, Tarrytown, N.Y., will distribute the Secos products throughout North America.

SecoShield is a network-based intrusion-detection system. SecoSpider aggregates enterprise security components on a single console.

Secos, based here, is owned by Korea-based Cybertek Holdings and launched products into the U.S. market last year, said Nick Hulse, Secos vice president and general manager.

The company's products are certified for interoperability with Check Point Software Technologies products through Check Point's Open Platform for Security (OPSEC) program, he said.

Secos sells 100 percent through the channel and is targeting Check Point solution provider partners, he said. The company has signed up about 60 VARs, and the deal with Westcon Group will greatly expand Secos' channel, he said.

"The only way to scale [and be really successful is to have a channel organization," Hulse said.
