F5 Partners can now leverage Tech Data Australia to build on their Security practice

SYDNEY, Australia, 17th November 2021 – Tech Data, a TD SYNNEX (NYSE: SNX) company, announced that it is ready to start transacting F5 in Australia following their recent appointment as a new F5 distributor.

According to IDC’s research, the global enterprise application market is projected to reach USD335 billion by 2025, with a 5-year CAGR of 13.6% for public cloud-based applications.

With this partnership, we also anticipate access to a broader range of partners such as dev op and cloud partners that build on our recent acquisitions” said Kaaren Lewis, Director Channel Sales at F5.
