Vertiv selects Cyber Security South Africa as distribution partner

Vertiv launches new micro data centre system for edge computing in MEA

Digital infrastructure provider Vertiv, has announced a technology distribution partnership with Cyber Security South Africa (CSSA).

While Africa expands its focus on fast tracking digital transformation and upscale cloud migration, Vertiv continues to expand its footprint in the region.

The partnership will address the current data centre challenges being faced in South Africa by enabling availability through Vertiv’s infrastructure technologies and speed of delivery through CSSA’s developed distribution capabilities.

“We are excited to add the Vertiv product range to our extensive offering, utilising our existing distribution footprint as well as engaging with new partners on our offering as an aggregator of products and services,” said Martin Britz, CEO of Cyber Security South Africa.

“We look forward to a successful relationship, not only between our two companies, but across our reseller network and customer base,” added Britz.

Due to COVID-19, remote workforces have escalated demand for connectivity, and South Africa has not been exempt from this trend. This has placed pressure on data centres and seen an increase of an urgent need for back-up power solutions.

“When Vertiv seeks out channel partners, the backbone of our distribution strategy in Africa, we look for game changers who can help us continue to innovate and disrupt new markets with industry-leading infrastructure”, said Pierre Havenga, Managing Director of Vertiv Middle East and Africa region.

“What sets CSSA apart for us, is not just their extensive knowledge of the market, or their network of relationships and people, but ultimately their ability to leverage those networks and work with their channel partners to help meet customer demands fast.”

Through the award-winning Vertiv Partner Program (VPP), the company has been able to give partners full knowledge and confidence about Vertiv’s IT infrastructure solutions and pass on new skills to the wider IT community in the process.
