Outpost Firewall Launches in Brazil
St. Petersburg, Russia – December 20, 2004 - Agnitum Ltd announces the official release of Outpost Firewall Pro for the Brazilian market. Brazil stands as the leader in technology and Internet use in South America, with more than 14 million Internet users reported in 2002 alone. That number will increase as Brazil works to bring computer and Internet access to a wider segment of its population. Customers in Brazil who seek dependable Internet security can purchase Outpost through multiple resale channels: online sales, retail networks, OEM, direct sales, and VAR.
Agnitum is aligning with Protagon Data Security to distribute Outpost Firewall in Brazil. Protagon Data Security is a company with broad, established experience selling such products as NOD32 and Kaspersky Anti-Virus. Outpost Firewall Pro will be available for the Brazilian market in Portuguese.
“After conducting exhaustive internal tests we decided that Outpost has all the right characteristics we are looking for. Outpost Firewall couples control features for the advanced user with a friendly interface for novices. With these features Outpost completely answers the needs of Protagon Data Security,” says Breno Pilar, company spokesman.
Protagon Data Security will focus specifically on reaching SoHO and home users. Users in Brazil spend almost as much time on the Internet as users in the U.S and more time than users in Australia and Great Britain. With broadband services expanding in the region, the need for a strong security package is essential to business and home users.
“We are happy that Protagon Data Security will now help us keep more PC users protected. Brazil is a highly important market, and it is crucial for us to provide the users from this part of the world with the best service,” said Mikhail Penkovsky, Agnitum Ltd Sales Director.
