Fri, 2nd Feb 2024

Infinigate, a specialist in cybersecurity, secure networks, and secure cloud, has entered into a distribution agreement with Auvik, an esteemed IT solutions provider, to equip its channel partners to meet the growing demand for cloud-based IT monitoring and management. Consequently, Infinigate will become the first distributor in the UK and Ireland to offer Auvik's automated network monitoring solutions. This technology allows IT professionals to swiftly and adeptly recognise and address network issues, thereby enhancing productivity.

Justin Griffiths, Managing Director of Infinigate UK&I, emphasised the significance of integrating Auvik into their UK portfolio. "Our partners are seeing an increase in customer demand to maximise network efficiency and uptime and to fully utilise their existing IT investment," said Griffiths. "Through the Auvik solution, we offer our partners the opportunity to deliver network monitoring services through the increasingly popular SaaS model, championing flexible IT consumption."

Auvik's multifaceted network monitoring solution allows service providers to manage multiple customer environments from a singular console. This approach not only guarantees effective and economical network monitoring but also reduces the costs that would have been incurred during visits to customer sites to resolve local network issues. Furthermore, Auvik's reseller programme allows partners to conduct network audits to introduce value and expand sales opportunities. This model is highly valuable in today's competitive arena where the utmost efficiency of IT infrastructure becomes a necessity, especially when managing expanding networks, which require constant adjustments and reconfigurations to maintain high uptime and productivity.

Stacey Tozer, Director of Channel at Auvik, conveyed her excitement about the partnership. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Infinigate for our channel expansion into the European market. Their proven track record of helping partners build high-value service models and their dedication to expanding the observability space will be invaluable for delivering Auvik solutions to the market. Together, we will implement our channel-first strategy in the region, with IT management tools built for the SMB and mid-market."

This collaboration between Infinigate and Auvik demonstrates a commitment to improve IT monitoring and management in the UK and Ireland. It's a pivotal step that could revolutionise businesses and enable them to make the most of their existing technology, whilst responding to customer needs with increased efficiency and reduced costs. This partnership is a clear victory for both companies and their burgeoning roster of partners and customers.
