Arrow Electronics Signs Pan-European Distribution Agreement with OPSWAT for Critical Infrastructure ProtectionSolutions

Global technology provider Arrow Electronics has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with global cybersecurity company OPSWAT to offer its MetaDefender and MetaAccess cybersecurity suite of critical infrastructure protection products. The solutions offer customers malware protection and detection capabilities within an organisation’s existing IT solutions and infrastructure, as well as the ability to help ensure that the network connection and the endpoint device is visible, allowed or blocked appropriately in line with threats.
Cyberattacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and able to evade traditional signature-based and behaviour-based anti-malware defences; as a result, there is a greater need for increased security to beat zero-day attacks and malware. In addition, organisations are faced with an increasing level of unknown devices accessing critical infrastructure. Employees, customers, contractors, guests, suppliers and their devices are all potential threats to the security of infrastructure, but over-zealous protection must not inhibit business productivity.
“The agreement between Arrow and OPSWAT means that customers can be safe in the knowledge that vulnerabilities – even those unknown to them, are taken care of,” said Alessandro Porro, vice president, global channels at OPSWAT. “There are an increasing number of weaknesses across critical infrastructure within organisations and vulnerabilities are often found where least expected. OPSWAT’s suite of cybersecurity products can handle common attack vectors so that stakeholder’s personal information and an organisation’s intellectual and critical infrastructure property remains intact.”
Alexis Brabant, vice president sales of Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in EMEA, said, “Security teams must be able to protect themselves from the threat landscape. More devices, more end points and more vulnerabilities than ever before – every file and device pose a security risk. The addition of OPSWAT’s cyberattack suite of products means that many more customers will have the best possible chance to help protect themselves from attack.”
