September 22, 2009

BOXBOROUGH, Mass. and MEXICO CITY, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Crossbeam Systems, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, today announced that it has expanded its presence in Latin America with increased support for the Mexican market, including the launch of a new Authorized Training Center in Mexico City and the signing of Afina as a Crossbeam Accredited Service Provider-Authorized Training Partner (CASP-ATP).

“We see a strong demand in Mexico for the X-Series as companies look for more scalable, cost-effective ways to meet evolving security, compliance and business requirements,” said Rogerio de Campos Morais, general manager for Latin America at Crossbeam. “With the new Authorized Training Center in place and on-the-ground support from Afina and our leading security partners, we are fully equipped to take advantage of opportunities in the region.”

Afina, one of the top IT security distributors in Mexico, will use the Authorized Training Center to provide hands-on, high-quality training on the X-Series to customers and other channel partners, as well as deliver courses to those who want to become Crossbeam Certified Specialists. As a CASP-ATP partner, Afina will also have access to Crossbeam’s fully-equipped Remote Training Lab to train onsite at customer locations or offer remote support–delivering unmatched flexibility to meet growing market demand.

“As IT staff look at how security virtualization can help them cut costs while improving their security posture, Crossbeam offers a unique advantage,” said Carmen Munoz Alamos, director general for Afina Mexico. “The X-Series platform is a great complement to Afina’s security products and services, and the CASP partner program provides the best opportunity to work jointly with Crossbeam to address customer requirements.”

In a seminar being held today at the St. Regis Mexico City, Crossbeam has joined forces with its leading security partners in the region–including Afina, Check Point, IBM, Imperva, Sourcefire, Trend Micro and Web Sense–to discuss Mexico’s evolving network security market and opportunities for growth.

“Mexico represents an important market for Check Point as businesses seek best-in-class network security solutions,” said Cecil Perez, vice president of sales, Latin America at Check Point. “We have worked successfully with Crossbeam in Mexico, and Crossbeam’s X-Series offers customers an additional platform to deploy Check Point’s latest R70 Security Gateway and intrusion prevention system.”
