LONDON, UK – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has today announced that it has signed a UK distribution agreement with CMS Distribution, an international value-added IT distributor of business and consumer technology products.

New resellers will also benefit from ESET’s highly regarded Partner Programme, delivering enhanced rewards and further proof of ESET’s 100% commitment to the channel.

“ ESET has therefore chosen CMS Distribution as a key UK distributor to further build its ecosystem of resellers and customers in all segments in order to satisfy the growing demands of the UK market. This agreement will allow CMS Distribution to recruit new channel partners to ESET, enabling them access to the entire portfolio of security products, together with market-leading services and support from CMS Distribution. We believe this relationship will enhance our channel commitment, while broadening our market reach into the enterprise community.”

“We’re pleased to offer ESET’s full suite of business and consumer solutions, and support its channel growth with our targeted marketing programmes, technical support and financial services,” said Nick Bailey, Director of Vendor Alliances at CMS Distribution. “The need and demand for flexible and powerful security services is at an all-time high, and we’re excited to team with ESET to bring greater choice, performance and value to our channel partners throughout the UK.”
