Westcon-Comstor is the leading global distributor of business technology. Our solutions
from the world’s leading vendors make businesses more secure, productive, mobile
and connected. We translate these technologies into real value for our partners through unrivalled channel support and our expertise in digital distribution, services and global deployment.
We specialise in Security, Collaboration, Infrastructure and Data Centre technologies, and focus on digital distribution expertise, enabling global deployments and providing a unique range of value-added professional and technical services.
We go to market through two lines of business: Westcon and Comstor.
Westcon works with the world’s leading vendors including Avaya, Microsoft, Extreme Networks, F5, Microsoft, Palo Alto Networks, Mitel and Ruckus Networks to mention a few, to offer the most advanced and effective solutions our partners need.
Comstor focuses on delivering Cisco’s tightly- aligned, industry-leading portfolio of technologies and solutions, so our partners can maximise the complete Cisco opportunity. Our Comstor business also delivers NetApp, Veeam, Merako, Solarwinds and VMware solutions, to name a few, to customers on the continent.
Together, we are Westcon-Comstor. Two lines of business with one approach – one that gives us our EDGE.
Our business promise
Security - Advanced Cyber Security technologies safeguard sensitive data, secure critical business systems, ensure business continuity and protect customer reputations.
Collaboration - Innovative Collaboration technologies transform the way businesses work by creating seamless team interactions anywhere, anytime.
Infrastructure - Networking, analytics and software-defined Infrastructure solutions address the technical challenges of modern networks and offer the flexibility, connectivity and reliability that customers need.
Data Centre - Physical and cloud Data Centre solutions including servers, storage consolidation, desktop virtualisation and virtualised unified communications enable business to manage their information even on a global scale.
Mobility - Our marking and printing Mobility technologies (Middle East only), including RFID and real-time location solutions, provide the data businesses need to make smarter, more informed business decisions.
Where we add real value
We don’t stop there. Our expertise in these technologies is underpinned by EDGE, demonstrated by our capabilities in Digital Distribution, Global Deployment and Services. These unlock more opportunities, maximise recurring revenues and enable partners to grow and thrive.
The way technology is consumed is changing, and our Digital Distribution expertise gives partners the tools they need to thrive as the market evolves.
Investment and innovation in data automation and customer technology tools keep us and our partners at the forefront of this digital transformation. Our partner integration technology and automation, e-Commerce self-service platform, X-View suite of sales management tools and Bluesky cloud and software toolset keep us ahead of the curve and aligned to our partners’ needs – now and in the future.
These tools make our vendor and reseller partners more agile, responsive and robust. By making it easier to do business with us, we keep them at the centre of the digital services lifecycle so they profit from every transaction and recurring revenues.
Global Deployment Solutions
With Global Deployment Solutions to support them, partners can extend their global reach and explore international opportunities with ease. Global logistics capabilities coupled with in-depth understanding of global, regional and local trade processes, compliance, customs and duties provide everything partners need to successfully deploy global projects involving multi-country roll-outs.
Through a joint venture with Westcon Americas – a subsidiary of Synnex Corporation – we manage global opportunities and operations between the two organisations under one name, providing a seamless, streamlined service for our partners, whoever and wherever they are in the world.
