Forming relationships face-to-face is hard enough, but I’m here to introduce Garland to government sectors and other entities to inform them that we’re here to provide 100% network security.

To ensure its status as an international leading Test Access Point (TAP) provider, Garland Technology continues its aggressive approach to expand across Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and the Asia Pacific region. Ongoing initiatives include new hires and promotions, as well as the development of an in-house sales department and call center.

Kevin Westermann, one of the most recent additions to the team, is now assuming the role as marketing coordinator for Garland. His responsibilities will include increasing company brand awareness and maintaining customer loyalty through strategic, analytical approaches on traditional and social media platforms.

“My main goal is to identify and connect to new business leads online - to help give Garland the brand recognition it deserves. Forming relationships face-to-face is hard enough, but I’m here to introduce Garland to government sectors and other entities to inform them that we’re here to provide 100% network security for their day-to-day activities,” says Westermann.

Additionally, a sales department and call center are under development to assist with customer inquiries. Currently, Garland offers scheduled training and support to partners and VAR resellers, and foresees a real-time call center to be a huge benefit to all parties. And as Garland forges into new international territories, available support will be necessary now more than ever.

The Buffalo-based Garland Technology has secured its name by providing TAPs to government, telecommunications, financial, and enterprise businesses that are looking for complete network visibility. The product line includes Network TAPs, Aggregation TAPs, Bypass TAPs, Regenerating TAPs and the Filtering Aggregation Load Balancing solutions, which are sold alone or with reseller bundles.

“Garland Technology’s goal is to grow long-term profitable partnerships with our distributors, resellers, and technology partners. We have added new strategic partners in ASIA Pacific, Europe, US, and Canada helping provide the localized support needed to be successful.” -- Chris Bihary, CEO and Co-Founder of Garland Technology.
