NETconsent Ltd, the UK’s leading vendor of effective policy management software solutions, has signed Allasso as their first distribution partner. Allasso will distribute NETconsent’s full suite of solutions to appointed resellers throughout the UK, providing organisations with the ability to manage, review and deploy corporate policies to users of IT services at reduced costs.
Through the agreement, Allasso and its resellers will have the opportunity to leverage the strength of NETconsent’s specialist policy management software products, such as WEBconsent, MAILconsent, LANconsent and LANconsent Pro. Additionally, it will make a significant contribution to NETconsent’s market penetration.
With corporate governance and risk management now high on the agenda of most corporate Boards, acceptable usage policy management is of increasing interest to HR and IT managers. NETconsent is seeing budgets being made available for managing this process as it makes sure staff fully understand their rights and responsibilities when using corporate resources. It also provides a comprehensive audit trail for user acceptance of policies and ultimately protects organisations from litigation.
"NETconsent has chosen to adopt a 100% channel model", explains Dominic Saunders, Operations Director, NETconsent Ltd. "Our strategy is to build a strong Partner Channel to enable us to reach as many end users as possible. We are confident that Allasso's reputation in the security marketplace ideally positions them as our first distribution partner."
Niall McGrane, Divisional Director, Security Division, Allasso, commented on the agreement: “NETconsent’s unique approach provides businesses with the peace of mind that users are agreeing to usage policies prior to being able to use Corporate services such as eMail and the web. The products we are delivering to our resellers and the support we will give them for their customer base will enable organisations to make substantial overhead and administrative cost savings whilst mitigating the ever increasing risks.”
NETconsent has to date enjoyed particular success in local government eg. Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council and more recently Cornwall County Council.
