CHAM, Switzerland, January 26 – INGRAM MICRO Switzerland today announced that they have entered into a distribution agreement with AppGuard, a global endpoint security provider that disrupts malware to prevent security breaches.
Under the agreement, INGRAM MICRO will enhance its extensive cybersecurity offerings with AppGuard to help business partners and their customers operate more securely and efficiently by stopping the execution of malware exploits. AppGuard blocks malware at endpoints in real-time without the limitations and post-compromise costs of detection-based tools.
“In 2020 we witnessed a 300% increase in cyberattacks as organizations shifted to remote work and online banking applications as a result of COVID 19,” said Dominik Buchholz, INGRAM MICRO Software & Cyber Security Business Unit Manager. “Cyber criminals continue to launch an endless array of increasingly sophisticated attacks using unknown malware, often outsmarting traditional security tools. We are confident that through our agreement with AppGuard we will enhance the value and security we offer our partners and their customers,” said Buchholz.
“We are excited to be working with INGRAM MICRO Switzerland as our premier distributor for the Swiss market,” said Chuck Sackley, Executive Vice President of Global Market and Business Development at AppGuard Inc. “We look forward to collaborating with INGRAM MICRO to enable their channel network to improve the security posture of their customers by defeating malware.”

We are excited to have INGRAM MICRO as a strategic distribution partner to deliver our advanced malware disruption technology to their market.”
