Resellers across Canada can now access Cisco Spark and Cisco Umbrella cloud security on Tech Data’s StreamOne Cloud Marketplace.

Both solutions, also available in Europe and the U.S., can be offered to customers through the cloud, Tech Data announced March 6. The two Cisco solutions will be welcomed with open arms by resellers and service providers using the StreamOne service, said Sergio Farache, senior vice-president for Global Cloud Solutions at Tech Data.

“With the proliferation of ransomware and other cybersecurity threats, along with new regulatory compliance requirements like GDPR in Europe, there is a critical requirement for assured protection of systems and data. Cisco solutions are designed for cloud delivery and management, and their availability through StreamOne allows our partners to deploy them for customers, wherever and whenever they are needed,” Farache said in a press release.

Cisco Spark allows for secure, always-on messaging to video calling, phones and video conferencing rooms, while Umbrella, delivered from the cloud, helps protect organizations against various security threats.

Last month, Oracle’s universal cloud credits made their way onto StreamOne, adding to StreamOne’s existing offerings, which include IBM, Microsoft and Veeam.

The credits, which are for Oracle’s Pay-As-You-Go metered services, give Tech Data customers in America and Europe access to all of Oracle’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service offerings (IaaS).
