LOS GATOS, Calif., June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Hifn(TM) (Nasdaq: HIFN), the catalyst behind storage and networking innovation, continued its strong momentum in expanding its reseller channel for its Swarm(TM) secure iSCSI appliances with the announcement of Genesix Inc. as Hifn's newest channel partner.
New York-based Genesix is a health care specialist VAR, with an expertise in design and installation of data intensive Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS). Genesix President and CEO Al Vickers said that the Hifn Swarm appliances are a perfect storage solution for a PACS environment, with a feature set that addresses health care IT issues and a design simplicity that fits well with the staffing challenges facing many health care operations.
"Our customers have to deal not only with the huge capacity growth of medical imaging but with HIPAA compliance requirements and managing multiple locations without the staff to go with it. Hifn products are easy to install and maintain, adding tremendous value to the product," said Vickers. "Hifn also solves the HIPAA compliance challenge with built-in data encryption in hardware versus software, making it simple, automatic and difficult for hackers to break."
"Health care and medical imaging are key market opportunities that can leverage the versatility of the iSCSI platform and the Genesix-Hifn partnership brings a huge value proposition to health care customers struggling with growing data loads, HIPAA challenges and managing remote sites," said John Matze, Vice President Business Development at Hifn. "Health care customers have hit the jackpot with this relationship, given the experience and PACS expertise of Genesix and Hifn's features of the Swarm iSCSI appliances that fit seamlessly within the health care market, all backed by our commitment to supporting and driving the success of our VAR partners."
Hifn's supports Genesix and all of its Channel 100 Partner Program members with a broad package of tools and resources to ensure their success in selling Swarm-based iSCSI storage solutions. Channel 100 partner benefits include training webinars, lead generation, product spiffs, joint customer visits with Hifn storage experts, discounted demo units, public relations and telemarketing support, and event and marketing program support based on sales volume. Hifn and Genesix will launch the new reseller partnership with a "Lunch and Learn" event in New York City on Tuesday, June 17 where attendees will learn about the server consolidation, storage virtualization and data encryption capabilities enabled with the Swarm iSCSI appliances from Hifn and how those translate into quantifiable business benefits. They will also have the opportunity to consult with Genesix and Hifn storage experts about their own storage requirements and how iSCSI can address those needs.
