Stonesoft Corp has signed a contract with Fujitsu Services Oy Finland. This contract covers product, maintenance and service sales of Stonesoft´s network security products in Fujitsu´s service offering. The goal of the co-operation is to offer comprehensive ICT-solutions, including Stonesoft´s network security solutions that maintain business continuity, to Fujitsu´s customers.
The contract broadens Fujitsu´s network security service offering that currently covers the Nordics and the Baltic countries. The common customer groups of both partners, such as customers working in the public, industrial, finance, retail and service sector, bring synergy to this co-operation.
Network security is one of the most important focus areas of Fujitsu. The goal of the company is to further improve the network security offering as versatile as possible and include products from different vendors into it as needed. Fujitsu offers StoneGate Security Platform from Stonesoft as a service.
"We can in the future offer Stonesoft´s existing customers overall services to support their existing solutions. Customers that use network security solutions from Stonesoft can continue to use the platform they are familiar with. It is possible to purchase the solutions both as a single service and as a part of Fujitsu´s Patja operating model, says Mika Hyppönen, Development Manager at Fujitsu.
Stonesoft has made contracts with several system integrators, such as Fujitsu, that also work as a service provider. An increasing part of the customers purchase also network security as a service.
"Fujitsu has a wide customer base in all Nordics and the Baltic countries, which means an extensive geographical coverage for Stonesoft. Fujitsu complements our own sales organization by offering centralized both Stonesoft´s network security solutions as well as comprehensive IT-services as a system integrator to its customers, says Kim Fagernäs, Vice President Sales, Nordics, at Stonesoft.
Some 110 000 work stations and 5 000 servers are at the moment part of Fujitsu´s Patja operating model.
StoneGate Security Platform´s network security solutions are adequate for different platforms and combine several modules of network security into one unified entity that can be centralized managed from one place. Particularly for distributed organizations the centralized management, technology scalability and high availability enable the optimization of the network resources, the continuous availability of business critical services and cost effective operations of the company.
