Proginet Partners with Canadian System i Reseller
May 1, 2007 Alex Woodie
Proginet sells a range of products that run on i5/OS and other platforms, including the file transfer product CyberFusion Integration (CFI) Suite, the SecureForce provisioning and user lifecycle management tool, and the SecurePass password management software (the company’s SecureAccess tool is aimed primarily at mainframe shops).
By signing BTS, Proginet, which is based in Garden City, New York, hopes to boost its traction in the System i arena. “Proginet has been long recognized as an IBM-centric solution provider so Blair’s deep expertise with IBM hardware and software, and specifically System i, gives our companies a strong natural alignment,” says Kevin Bohan, Proginet’s chief information officer.
“They have an established track record with organizations using System i, and they’ve been highly successful in key vertical markets such as manufacturing and retail. This relationship enables us to leverage their expertise and reputation to penetrate markets we may not have traditionally been able to,” Bohan says.
