Senstar Partners With BGW Technologies – Distribution Agreement Introduces Cyber Security Product Line to Australia
Ottawa, Canada – February 11, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) and now a provider of cyber security solutions has partnered with BGW Technologies to kick off sales of Senstar cyber products in Australia.
Jonathan Johnson, regional sales manager for Senstar Australia stated: “BGW Technologies was chosen as a partner because of the close working relationships they have with their suppliers and the successes they have in the markets they operate in. Senstar was looking for a distribution partner, who like us, is committed to raising the bar educationally in the electronic security industry and is forward thinking with regards to the rapid progression of technology.”
BGW Technologies provides Senstar with access to the industrial and mining sectors, and to the electronic physical security channel. This was important because of the significant value Senstar’s cyber products bring to sectors who utilize SCADA and industrial communications systems, and to those organizations who want to meet the challenges of converging physical and cyber security networks.
In return, BGW Technologies gains a strong foothold in the rapidly growing cyber security market. Senstar’s Tungsten cyber security Ethernet switch is a world’s first and adding it to BGW Technologies‘ already impressive technology lineup brings a new dimension to their solutions portfolio, all the while backed by the 30+ year strong Senstar global team.
“Senstar is a great fit for BGW Technologies. Their products have a fantastic reputation for reliability and they continue to develop specialist solutions for the security market. The Senstar cyber portfolio further enhances our capability to offer complete end to end solutions, from the world’s leading manufacturers to our customers,” said Ron Jackson, general manager, BGW Technologies.
BGW Technologies has placed an initial stocking order with Senstar. The staff is also participating in product training sessions across Australia to ensure they have all the information to sell and support this new offering.
