Askaris are very proud to announce that Check Point have awarded us with a 3 Star partner status.

This has been the culmination of 9 months very hard work from the entire Askaris team in designing, provisioning and supporting Check Point solutions in several different disciplines. From almost a standing start, we have implemented multi-site VPN and security management, SandBlast solutions, CloudGuard solutions as well as a concerted effort to have all of our customers upgraded to R80 well in time for the end of life of R77.30.

This accreditation allows us to get support from Check Point to aid business development and compete in much more price-competitive situations.  Coupled with our award as Certified Check Point Support Partner (CCSP) during 2018, this has re-enforced our credentials and security message in being able to support all of our customer’s complex security needs.

It is important to note though that we could not have done this without the help and support from the Check Point teams in the UK and Israel who provided guidance throughout the process.  …and a special mention goes to Jemma Barton and her team at Arrow ECS who, as one of Check Point’s distributors in the UK, provided unparalleled support and service making our job a lot easier than it could have been.

Now the hard work starts to achieve 4 Star status…!
