LANDESK Software Extends its Reach in the Middle East with Intertec Systems

Prompted by Growth in the Public Sector, Financial Services and Telecommunications Industries in Bahrain

SALT LAKE CITY - February 10, 2010  --  LANDESK Software , a global leader in systems, security and process management solutions, today announced its expansion into Bahrain through its partner, Intertec Systems. Growth in industry sectors such as government, finance and telecommunications has led to an increased demand for IT management solutions and prompted the decision to expand. This marks the first direct availability of LANDESK®solutions in the country.

"Global economic challenges have led businesses and investors to explore opportunities across the Middle East in countries such as Bahrain, Qatar and the state of Abu Dhabi, where there is a more favourable economic and legal framework for growth," explains Frederic Pierresteguy, Director of Sales, Southern Region, LANDESK. "We are seeing investment from the authorities in national infrastructure projects and the development of these markets as centres for financial services and banking. Technology underpins these industries and there is a lot of interest in how IT operations can be simplified and secured effectively. Having had a successful, long-term partnership with Intertec Systems elsewhere in the Middle East, they are the perfect partner to deliver LANDESK solutions to customers in Bahrain."

Intertec Systems is an Expert Solutions Provider for LANDESK Software and will offer its full suite of technology. This includes  LANDESK® Management Suite 9  which  secures  and  manages desktop  and mobile devices throughout a network and which is particularly valuable in helping companies upgrade to new operating platforms such as  Microsoft Windows 7 . Intertec will also offer LANDESK's  IT Service Management solutions  which help organisations track their hardware and software assets and boost productivity through service desk support.

Mohan Punjabi, Vice President and Bahrain Country Manager for Intertec Systems says that "TANMIA, the National Human Resource Development and Employment Authority for the United Arab Emirates is already using a broad range of LANDESK solutions and we have several other major customer projects in the pipeline. We see huge potential in the region for this technology. We will be holding a launch event at the Bahrain Crowne Plaza on the 10th February 2010 and we'd encourage the IT community to attend and discover how this software can help simplify and enhance the efficiency of their IT operations."
