Argus Systems Group, an international vendor of high-end security software solutions for networked computers, has become Symbio Technologies' most recent value added reseller.

Argus joins other VARs such as UK-based Pristine Systems, Xperteks Computer Consultancy, and Superior Computer Services who have created alliances with Symbio Technologies ( since the beginning of 2009.

Purchased in 2003 by Innovative Security Systems, Inc., Argus ( is best known for its PitBull line of products that provide a comprehensive approach to enterprise security by adding security attributes to the underlying operating system at the kernel level. Its customers include companies such as Credit Suisse Direct Net Internet Banking Service that have a strong need to secure confidential information.

"When Argus discovered that Symbio had the security expertise to make their thin client solution work perfectly with PitBull right out of the box, they decided immediately to become a VAR," said Lew Tischler, Symbio's CFO and Director of Reseller Activities.

Andrew Jones, President of Argus Systems Group, said, "Argus will be demonstrating its products on Symbio's stateless hardware at the Argus booth at the 2009 Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Orlando in May. An alliance between Argus, which is known for providing iron-clad security for Solaris systems and Symbio Technologies, which offers ultra-secure stateless hardware solutions, seems like a natural partnership."

While 2009 has presented many companies with challenges, the outlook for spending on security products should be stronger than for other areas of technology, in part because of compliance issues and the need to secure data. Looking forward to 2013, Brian Burke, program director of IDC's Security Products Program, says, "Our survey research continues to point to very robust customer investment in emerging areas such as security hosted services and virtualization."

Tischler concluded, "We believe this continuing need to secure data, coupled with the desire for hardware that works with a wide range of current and legacy systems, will be a driving force in bringing new partners and customers to our doors.”
