Dicker Data New Zealand has become an authorised distributor for network security vendor Dell SonicWALL. Dicker Data will distribute the full portfolio of SonicWALL products, including the recently announced Dell SonicWALL Secure Mobile Access (SMA) 100 Series OS 8.5 and SonicOS 6.2.6 firmware.
Dell SonicWALL products have been distributed in New Zealand by Connector Systems. Dell’s announcement of Dicker Data’s appointment gave no indication as to the status of this relationship and as of 21 September, Connector Systems’ web site was still advertising Dell SonicWALL products. Connector Systems was acquired by global distribution company Ingram Micro in February 2016.
Both Dell SonicWALL and Dicker Data New Zealand say they will have dedicated teams “to ensure that the new partnership is an immediate success.”
Notwithstanding Ingram Micro’s presence in New Zealand, Dicker Data claims to be “the premier ICT distributor in NZ with nearly two decades of expertise in software licensing and networking.”
