New partnership with Netgenium gives resellers access to ‘door-to-desktop’ integrated IP-based security and power-saving technologies
Newmarket, 23rd March 2009: COMPUTERLINKS, a leading global distributor of IT security and Internet technology solutions, today announced it has been appointed as a distributor for Netgenium Systems Ltd in the UK and Ireland. The agreement gives resellers access to the entire Netgenium range of access control and intelligent building products in addition to COMPUTERLINKS’ existing IP Physical Security portfolio, which includes IP surveillance products and open platform IP video management software.
Netgenium’s products, such as its unique IP lock controller, all use Power over Ethernet (PoE) and are designed to be connected and installed by an IT professional. Its ‘Policy Server’ appliance manages IP telephony devices and IP lighting controllers, providing energy savings and combined physical and logical access security.
With the addition of PoE technology and its background in IP and data network security, COMPUTERLINKS can now provide door-to-desktop security with real energy-saving benefits. COMPUTERLINKS will provide full on-site pre-sales consultancy for Netgenium’s products including product demonstrations, site surveys, training and configuration, ensuring resellers have full logistical and technical support to realise the revenue opportunities within this emerging market.
Head of IP physical security at COMPUTERLINKS, John Turner, said: “The addition of Netgenium to our physical security portfolio means that resellers can now offer their clients a fully integrated IP-based security solution alongside intelligent building technologies. For organisations with large numbers of staff in a single building, the savings could be significant.
“With this technology, when personnel enter or leave a building, not only can their access to the company’s premises, computer systems and data be monitored but also lighting and power to their working area, phone and computer can be controlled to reduce consumption when the area is not in use.”
Paul Anderson, managing director of Netgenium Systems said: “We chose COMPUTERLINKS due to its thorough understanding of IP data security, its existing complimentary vendor partners and the added value it brings to the channel with its professional services. We hope this agreement will allow greater penetration of our award-winning products into IT reseller channel.”
