AUSTIN, Texas (May 16, 2012) – Uplogix, the leader in Local Management announced today a distribution agreement with NetXcom ICT Solutions for South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa region.
 
“Signing NetXcom to be a distributor in South Africa and Sub Saharan Africa, opens an exciting opportunity for Uplogix,” said Lisa Frankovitch, Uplogix vice-president of sales and business development. “The rapid expansion of networks in the region offer many opportunities for Local Management to have significant impact across a range of vertical markets.”
 
Uplogix has developed the first network-independent management platform that locates with — and directly connects to — managed devices. It can stand alone or augment existing centralized management tools to provide the configuration, performance and security management automation functions that are best performed locally. 
 
The benefits that NetXcom’s customers will see are reduced operational costs, faster resolution when issues arise and improved security and compliance versus centralized-only management. The enhanced focus on network devices of Uplogix readies management systems for the transition to the production use of more network sensitive cloud and virtual infrastructure technologies. 
 
“We are very excited that through our partnership with Uplogix, we can bring our customers the latest tools for managing their ever-distributed networks,” said Nico Oosthuizen , Managing Director and founder of NetXcom ICT Solutions. “Local Management automates the Level1 support issues that not only represent a large portion of the cost of IT, but also consume time from skilled IT staff that could be spent on innovation.”
