Focus on Digital Customer Relationships: gateprotect to Launch Partner App and New Website

Hamburg, 10th March 2014 - As of now, it will be even easier for gateprotect partners and any interested party to find product information and communicate with the leading German IT security provider while travelling: The "gateprotect App" is now available in the "iTunes Store" and in the "Google Android-Market" for free download.

Partners and new customers may as of now view corporate news, compare products, display technical documents, request licenses and manage their offers and orders over their smartphones.

In the "Support" area, support tickets may be generated and answered while travelling.

"As a German vendor, we have always been able to respond quickly to the needs of our partners and resellers and provide them with optimal assistance. With the app, we are now enhancing the digital communication and enable our partners to enter into contact with us even more easily", says Dr. Peter Smeets, CEO gateprotect AG Germany.

The gateprotect app offers:

  • Up-to-date product news and attractive promotional offers
  • Next Generation Firewalls compared to other products
  • Product center with license management and overview of license terms
  • FAQ, technical documentations and current patches
  • Training material and video tutorials
  • Direct contact to support

Right on time for the start of the CeBIT in Hannover on 10 March 2014, the gateprotect website will be launched with a refreshed design and a new structure. Under http://www.gateprotect.de, the focus is now, besides technical information on the innovative UTM firewalls of the Hamburg-based vendor, also on the security needs of our customers and descriptive case studies from certain industries.

Both the gateprotect app and the relaunch of the website have been implemented by the Hamburg-based agency Bornhold Lee GmbH.
