TEKDATA GIVES AWAY FREE INTERNET SECURITY HARDWARE Monday 21 August 2006 PDF Print Monday 21st August 2006 Stoke on Trent , UK. TEKDATA GIVES AWAY FREE INTERNET SECURITY HARDWARE Tekdata Distribution, Stoke based IT distributor has today announced the UK’s first trade program offering FREE hardware to existing customers. Until 31st December, customers will be able to get their hands on a FREE latest generation SonicWALL Internet Security appliance. In the past, a static stateful packet inspection firewall was sufficient network protection. But, the sophistication of hackers has evolved and today’s state of the art firewalls include dynamic protection against worms, viruses, spyware and other modern threats. Unified Threat Management appliances (UTM) have now replaced traditional firewalls and offer more protection against a wider range of Internet threats such as spyware, viruses, hackers and malicious content. This new program from Tekdata will allow any SonicWALL customer running a generation 3 product with a valid support contract to get a generation 4 product when they buy 2 years of UTM protection. Jason Hill, Tekdata’s Sales Manager welcomed this new program. “This will enable customers who are using 2 or 3 year old technology to upgrade to one of the new appliances for no more than they would normally pay in support costs. This will give extra protection to thousands of businesses using technology without UTM built in and potentially save thousands in potential downtime” This offer is available exclusively through the SonicWALL channel and via Tekdata Distribution.
