London, 6th November 2013: BullGuard, a global provider of internet and mobile security solutions for consumers, is pleased to announce a new partnership with IT & Mobile Distributor Exertis Micro-P, which will include initial distribution of BullGuard Internet Security, Mobile Security and Identity Protection software packages.
A leading technology distributor that has been established for over 30 years, Exertis Micro-P is one of Europe’s leading IT & Mobile distributors. Based in the UK & Ireland, Exertis Micro-P has close relationships with major retailers, e-tailers and VARS across the PC, peripherals, mobile & telco markets. Together with strong partnerships with IT and mobile vendors, networks and suppliers such as Microsoft, Samsung, Nokia, Lenovo and others, Exertis Micro-P is dedicated to adding value for all stakeholders through convergence of devices, accessories and software.
BullGuard enhances this process, allowing Exertis Micro-P to further engage with customers and create tailor made propositions to answer business and end-user requirements. Focusing on the three main channels of B2C, B2B and mobile, it has created a structure that maximises the core fundamentals but also addresses the specific needs of each customer group. Through these channels, BullGuard’s products and services will be visible to end-users in multiple arenas, with true attach proposition on mobile, PC and tablet devices.
BullGuard’s new Internet Security software, its most progressive and intuitive security suite to date, has been chosen to protect consumers from all online threats. Boasting an elegant interface for all levels of user, enhanced behavioural detection and vulnerability detection, it also offers backup and tune-up tools that run silently in the background with minimal impact on system resources. BullGuard Internet Security is one of the most advanced internet security suite available.
BullGuard Identity Protection will safeguard users 24/7 against identity theft by monitoring the web and the “dark web” where personal data is illegally traded. It also provides Facebook protection for parents concerned about what their children are being exposed to online, such as cyber bullying, social predators or inappropriate content.
BullGuard’s comprehensive Mobile Security software has also been chosen as the ideal safeguard against the increasing number of threats that are affecting smartphone users, offering a superior antivirus engine that protects smartphone data by real-time detection and removal of viruses and other malware, a mobile security manager to locate, lock or wipe a phone and SIM card protection in the event of loss or theft.
“Exertis Micro-P is proud to work with BullGuard to offer end-users a true value-added proposition that addresses much of the security and protection needs of their growing digital portfolio,” said Ross Dedman, Attach Business Manager. “The BullGuard packages give true peace of mind and reassurance that digital content, identity and financial details are protected, giving them the freedom to explore without fear.”
BullGuard also believes that Exertis Micro-P is an ideal partner, being highly respected in the mobile telecoms market and offering the opportunity to greatly increase exposure in a growth sector category. “The opportunity to work with Exertis Micro-P’s sales teams, who in our opinion are in a league of their own, is a big plus,” said BullGuard Head of Global Sales, Peter Barlow. “We see this as a great opportunity for both parties, allowing Exertis Micro-P’s customers to benefit from the peace of mind on offer from our industry-leading security software solutions, as well as expanding our coverage into a number of key areas”.
As a valued partner, Exertis Micro-P’s resellers will also benefit from BullGuard’s unique revenue share program, which provides channel partners with an industry leading percentage share of online revenue generated from subscription renewals. An integrated part of BullGuard’s channel strategy since 2002, the revenue share program provides real cash for companies to reinvest, enabling them to actively grow their businesses.
Barlow concluded: “We offer strong margins for our partners but how we really stand out from the crowd is by offering an attractive revenue share on subscription renewals. As a big “thank you” for initially attracting the new customer, we reward our active channel partners for as long as the customer keeps renewing their subscription, meaning their revenue share accumulates.”
BullGuard’s Partner Lounge tool will also provide resellers with all they need to make revenue share transparent and easy to claim, including sales tracking, renewal and revenue accumulation alongside marketing, product and technical support.
