Our Partners

Building Partnerships

Our team is highly qualified and all our employees follow vendor certification programmes. We work hand-in-hand with our partners to ensure that we have not only the latest technical knowledge, but also a deeper understanding of how developments in their technologies can benefit our customers.

Such is the recognition of the outstanding value we add to the sales and delivery processes that Apposite Technologies and Ekahau have selected us as their sole UK distribution partner.

Apposite Technologies

Partner Since: 2009
Partner Status: UK Distributor

Back in 2008 we were migrating a customer’s network into the cloud and needed to ensure that their users would get the same application experience once they were hosted in the cloud. We searched for WAN emulators that could do the job and selected Apposite for its great functionality and affordability. After the project concluded we were very impressed and realised how helpful the product could be for other businesses in the UK, which is why we’ve been the UK distributor ever since!

Originally selling Packeteer before it was aquired by Blue Coat Systems in 2008, we’ve got a long history of working with packet shaping and bandwidth management tools. Whilst our specialism lies within the Symantec network performance and WAN optimisation products such as PacketShaper and MACH5, we recognised the benefits that Symantec’s security portfolio would bring to our customers and carry all Symantec product lines.

VMware Partner Logos


Partner Since: 2006

We started working with VMware before the term Cloud had even been coined, in 2006 we began hosting virtual workloads for customers, and at the time we called it ‘Flexible Hosting Infrastructure’. Our highly experienced team includes multiple VCPs, not just skilled and experienced in the core vSphere products, but also in the associated supporting ecosystem such as Realise Operations Manager and vRealise Configuration Manager.

We use these same skills in customer on-premise engagements where we run optimisation assessments, right-sizing and disaster recovery readiness preparation.
