More than 30 resellers, integrators and partners have come together in Sydney to examine leading software security firm ESET'S new channel partner program.

The reseller event demonstrated new versions of the ESET product range and is part of the company's bold move into the Australian market.

Partner organisations travelled from across Australia to attend the event, including from as far afield as Darwin in the Northern Territory. They were shown new products, as well as being introduced to the new Managed Service Provider platform.

ESET chief operating officer, Asia Pacific region, Lukas Raska, told attendees at the event that Australia was his top priority for 2014 and onwards. "ESET will invest and provide sales and marketing tools and top level support to help resellers succeed in their day to day business efforts," he said. ESET Australia country manager, Florin Vasile, said he knew how important the channel was to the company's success.

"We decided to hold a special event for our channel partners, including many we have not previously worked with, to outline to them the significant opportunities for growth by working with ESET." Pro1 Security Solutions general manager Neil Spacey said he was very impressed by the commitment ESET had shown to the Australian market.

"Attending the event has helped us to understand how significant the opportunity is from working with ESET to help our customer base keep ahead of the information security threats they are facing."
