WhiteGold will distribute the entire eEye range, including its network vulnerability scanners, IS-based Web server protection and data monitoring tools.
Dominic Whitehand, managing director at WhiteGold, said the distributor aimed to provide niche security products to niche Australian markets across a range of verticals.
“Accurately assessing network vulnerabilities and securing the corporate infrastructure are important security initiatives for all companies,” said Daphna Freeman, international channel manager at eEye.
Last month eEye announced an enterprise Web server protection software package for Microsoft Windows Server 2000 and 2003, which the company claims provides added protection against worms such as CodeRed and Nimda.
