Raz-Lee Signs BOSaNOVA to Resell Security Software
April 17, 2007 Alex Woodie
BOSaNOVA is getting the security bug. Once focused primarily on System i terminals and emulation, the company broke into the security business with the introduction of its Q3 data encryption appliance earlier this year. Now, BOSaNOVA is hooking up with Raz-Lee Security in a new partnership to sell Raz-Lee’s i5/OS security software, the companies announced last week.
As part of the deal, BOSaNOVA will resell iSecurity, Raz-Lee’s suite of security software for i5/OS. iSecurity is composed of 13 related products providing network security, audits, antivirus, password management, user profile management, and security assessment capabilities, through green screens or a Java-based GUI.
The iSecurity software and Q3 encryption hardware will be sold through BOSaNOVA’s new Security Solutions Group. The new group is headed up by security solutions director Mike Campbell, who, ironically, worked for a time at Raz-Lee, where he helped start its reseller channel. (Before that, the Dallas-based Campbell was with iTera, which is now Vision Solutions.) Raz-Lee, which is based in Herzliya, Israel, has U.S headquarters in Nanuet, New York, and has attracted more than a dozen partners over the last couple of years.
“iSecurity is a high quality, comprehensive end-to-end security solution and this partnership is a perfect fit because both companies are committed to providing top-notch solutions and support for the System i community,” Campbell says.
