Kappa Data launches WAN optimization audit

Benelux: network and security VAD Kappa Data has unveiled a new service, dedicated to optimize WANs through an audit. The service aims to help resellers with WAN application performance issues, WAN usage or bandwidth monitoring. For only €625 list price, the Kappa Data technical experts perform an audit on WAN network infrastructure and present a heap of personalized optimization advice in the format of an audit report. Kappa Data's WAN optimization audit is based on Exinda's WAN orchestrations technology and is easy to implement in any network, big or small and regardless of its complexity. Exinda boxes are configured in bridging mode and will collect data during a period of 2 weeks. After these 2 weeks, the Kappa Data engineers examine and analyze the data to create personalized WAN optimization reports. The result of this type of exercise is phenomenal in most cases. According to Kappa Data, "in the case of one particular customer, we took the bandwidth back to 10% of the original available bandwidth. And guess what: none of the users saw any change in the way the applications worked. Exinda QoS did a fantastic job here. Optimization doesn't necessary mean that you need to purchase Exinda boxes. In some cases, one WAN optimization audit can reveal the applications in your network that are taking too much bandwidth, while they can work fine on a lower bandwidth. It can reveal users that consume too much bandwidth as well. These instances can be resolved without implementing Exinda equipment. In other cases, it's worth purchasing specialized Exinda equipment to drastically improve performance on some of your critical applications."

Kappa Data introduces the Configuration Audit for Firewalls

After the success of the Firewall Care service, a speedy and easy-to-use replacement service for Barracuda firewalls hosted on its Control Center, network and security VAD Kappa Data has launched a unique and valuable service, the Configuration Audit, which is available to its customers in Belgium, the Netherlands and Poland. New Firewalls are configured with great care and consideration, but across time the distributor has noticed that they quickly become outdated and expose the network to external threats. These threats are often caused by months of changes and updates to the settings that remain unmonitored. In an effort to facilitate the management of the firewall configuration set-up, they have developped the Kappa Data Configuration Audit. This unique security service provides users with deep intel on the security status of their firewall configuration. With a checklist of more than 80 items across 15 categories, Kappa Data's auditors take a deep dive into the firewall's security settings, assessing its level of coverage against security threats. Besides the obvious topics such as checking security policies, anti-malware and SSL, the Configuration Audit covers non-conventional checkpoints as well. The conclusions of the audit are brought to the user in an easy-to-understand digital report, ready for its customers to take measures! This service is currently available for all Barracuda Firewalls hosted on the Kappa Data managed Control Center.

More vendors and employees for AED, Kappa Data and SDC

Benelux: Japanese vendor Epson has appointed AV VAD AED Distribution as an official videoprojector distributor in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Network and security VAD Kappa Data has appointed Siheb Mohib as new key account manager for the Noord-Holland region in the Netherlands, and Arne Naessens for the French-speaking part of Belgium. The distributor has also signed a distribution deal with load balancing vendor KEMP Technologies for the Netherlands. Finally, in the Netherlands too, network and telecom VAD SDC Group has added Grandstream VoIP products to its catalog.

Kappa Data distributes Exinda

Network and security VAD Kappa Data has unveiled a new distribution agreement with Exinda, covering Belgium, Luxemburg, the Netherlands and Poland. With Exinda products, Kappa Data can guarantee an exceptional quality of experience for any application in the network through the management of users, traffic, devices and applications. All this is possible through an innovative approach called WAN orchestration and the award-winning product "Exinda Network Orchestrator". Kappa Data will provide sales, pre-sales and aftersales support for the complete Exinda portfolio and will become Exinda Authorised Training Center in the near future. Patrick Casteels, Managing Partner Kappa Data, says: "with Exinda we extend our portfolio for the first time with a dedicated WAN optimization product. Many customer suffer from a lack of performance when implementing important applications such as SAP, Skype for Business, Sharepoint… Exinda offers great solutions to show the exact impact of these applications and provides solutions to improve them. This was the missing gap in our product portfolio that is now completed. We are looking forward to build the channel in the different countries and help Exinda where needed."

Poland: after five years trading as Contica Solutions, Belgian network and security VAD Kappa Data, which also owns a subsidiary in the Netherlands, has decided to take full control over the company, which has been renamed to Kappa Data Polska. New employees and new vendors, beside Barracuda Networks, will be added in the coming months and years, to help the business grow more rapidly (source: Channel Connect Nederland).
