London, UK | June 6, 2014

Attachmate Corporation today announces the appointment of Arrow Electronics as a new distributor in the UK as part of a partner recruitment drive as it looks to grow its channel footprint.

Arrow is already a UK distributor for the other three brands that make up The Attachmate Group—NetIQ, Novell and SUSE. By working with Arrow, the Attachmate Corporation will be helping those customers looking to integrate their existing systems with emerging technologies.

David Ellis, director of strategy, Arrow ECS UK & Ireland comments: "We are very pleased to be appointed as a UK distributor by Attachmate, not least because this makes Arrow the only distributor to act for all four Attachmate Group brands in the UK. This latest appointment is a ringing endorsement of our capabilities as a distributor, and we are very much looking forward to getting out there in the market and talking to our customers about the Attachmate product portfolio."

Barry Davis, sales director UK, Attachmate, comments: "This is a strategic partnership developed for the long term and designed to provide more choice to resellers, as well as catering for VARs, cloud services providers, MSPs and system integrators of all shapes and sizes. The market for our products is rapidly evolving, and Arrow' expertise will be invaluable as we present our new portfolio in what is a very exciting and challenging time for the enterprise IT space.

"We are committed to investing in the channel and in addition to our new relationship with Arrow, we are currently looking for proactive resellers to join our growing partner programme.
