NCP engineering and Tech Data Expand Secure Remote Access to SMB Market

In what’s being described by the president of the National Small Business Association (NSBA) as “a step in the right direction,” the U.S. Congress decided to take up legislation that would help the small business community better protect itself from network security threats.

During a hearing by the House Small Business Committee last Wednesday, NSBA President Todd McCracken went on to say, "Any legislation should provide clear, simple steps for companies to follow when their data is breached." This support is imperative, McCracken said, because more than half of U.S. small businesses now say they have been victims of a cyberattack.

Given this rocky landscape, small businesses – which often have less sophisticated network defenses – need help. And now, NCP engineering is better able to meet North American SMB demand for secure remote access through a new distribution agreement with Tech Data, one of the world's largest wholesale distributors of technology products.

The agreement expands NCP's North American partner network and offers Tech Data's SMB solution providers NCP's Secure Entry Clients through its Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) division. Tech Data’s ecosystem also includes major VPN gateway vendors, including Cisco, Check Point and WatchGuard, which complement NCP's solutions well.

For now, the go-to-market strategy initially targets SMBs through Tech Data’s network of resellers, and will evolve to include the enterprise market, as NCP engineering CEO Patrick Oliver Graf told ChannelBuzz. He said, “[Going] SMB would let Tech Data see revenue success very quickly, which is an important objective."

The agreement will help SMBs be more proactive in protecting their networks – an important step, given that the average cyberattack now costs SMBs $20,752 per incident, according to the NSBA.

With NCP's market-leading remote access VPN client, SMBs gain access to a universal client suite, complete with one-click logon, a fast connection, and always-on reliability. Together, these features provide SMBs with the remote access security they need to allow their workforces to work wherever they choose.

And with these remote access solutions, and potential support coming down from Congress, North American SMBs could be one step closer to preventing the next big breach.
