Westcon-Comstor Expands Check Point Partnership for Enhanced Cybersecurity Solutions in AWS Marketplace

Westcon-Comstor broadens collaboration with Check Point, offering streamlined access to cybersecurity solutions via AWS Marketplace.

Westcon-Comstor, a global technology provider and specialist distributor, have announced an expansion of its partnership with Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., a leading AI-powered, cloud-delivered cybersecurity platform provider, to equip channel partners with a competitive, streamlined and simplified route to transacting Check Point products in AWS Marketplace.

The announcement comes after Westcon-Comstor was named EMEA distributor of the year at Check Point’s CPX 2024 event in Vienna for driving significant growth across its solutions.

Under the new agreement, Westcon-Comstor becomes the first and only distributor outside the US to privately list Check Point’s cybersecurity software solutions in AWS Marketplace.

Spanning Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC), the collaboration allows partners to benefit from the accelerated transaction times, expanded deal sizes, higher win rates and shortened sales cycles enabled by AWS Marketplace, driving adoption of Check Point’s portfolio. Full availability of the service will soon be available in Sub-Saharan Africa, further extending its reach and impact across this key market.

Check Point is the latest vendor to be formally onboarded on to Westcon-Comstor’s AWS Marketplace programme, following the signing of the distributor’s Designated Seller of Record (DSOR) agreement with AWS.

The collaboration comes after Check Point and Westcon-Comstor signed a worldwide distribution agreement late last year to unlock new growth opportunities for partners seeking to capitalise on rising Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) demand.

It’s fantastic to be adding a new strategic dimension to our long-standing, successful relationship with Check Point through this agreement. End-users are increasingly drawn to AWS Marketplace, and it’s vital that we enable our partners to participate in this growth. The way to do that is by giving partners the ability to transact products from the world’s leading software vendors in AWS Marketplace, and that’s what this agreement with Check Point is all about. We look forward to adding the service to our local offerings.

It exemplifies our shared vision of securing business transformation with advanced, AI-powered cybersecurity solutions.
