UPDATE: ZyXEL Incentivizes Solution Providers to Upgrade SMB Customers With Secure Wireless Networks

Authorized Resellers Receive Free Business Wi-Fi Access Points With Purchase of Next-Gen UTM Firewalls

ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access, connected home and routing products, today announced incentives for solution providers to assist them in upgrading their SMB customer networks with stronger security and a better Wi-Fi experience. Authorized channel partners will receive premium Business Wi-Fi Access Points (NWA5121-NI) at no charge with purchase of next-gen UTM firewall devices (USG40/40W, USG60/60W, USG110/210).

Security and mobility are at the top on the upgrade list for SMBs. After numerous serious data breaches at major companies in recent months, security efforts have gained renewed urgency among businesses of all sizes. Larger corporations have mandated stricter security measures from their SMB vendor partners. Potential security breaches created by the unstoppable BYOD trend and use of multiple smart devices at work, demands that businesses update their wireless network with faster, more manageable and more secure Wi-Fi solutions.

"ZyXEL has integrated a WLAN controller into our next-gen UTM firewalls to strengthen security and simplify deployment of wireless networks." said Steven Joe, executive vice president for channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "This incentive will help our channel partners try our enterprise-class Wi-Fi AP risk-free, while improving profitability for their network upgrade projects."

ZyXEL's new USG series of next-generation UTM firewalls offers a huge bandwidth boost to small and mid-size businesses along with better protection from emerging cyber threats. A WLAN controller is built into the USG gateways with the WLAN management component closely integrated with security management to help SMBs quickly and effortlessly set-up and extend a secure WLAN network. In addition, the new USG line has app control to defend against productivity drain and a simplified, unified user interface to manage multiple security services.

Partner Incentive: Secure Wi-Fi
Authorized ZyXEL partners will receive up to two NWA5121-NI Wi-Fi business APs at no charge with purchase of the new USG series next-gen UTM firewalls. Details below:
