Australian firm HAT Distribution has been selected as Paessler's distributor partner for Australia and New Zealand, with the core directive of driving Paessler's entry into new markets and verticals.

The partnership will serve enterprise clients across Australia and New Zealand, with reference to IT infrastructure availability, performance, and security.

Paessler states that it wants to tap into vendor ecosystems related to the region's industrial markets because they are key growth opportunities for technologies such as infrastructure monitoring.

Paessler's PRTG Network Monitor is the company's IT monitoring solution for IT infrastructures, network performance and applications, cloud services, and virtual environments. It is used by more than 300,000 IT administrators in more than 170 countries.

Paessler AG Asia Pacific regional director Daniel Sultana says the company works with the healthcare, government, and financial sectors, but it also wants to work more across managed service providers, data centers, education, and transportation.

“We want to make it easy for enterprises in Australia and New Zealand to keep their IT infrastructures available, performing well and secure,” explains Sultana.

“We found a partner that not only fits extremely well with Paessler's business ethos and culture, but whose talented team of technology experts completely understand what our solution can offer enterprises from a technical perspective in this region. We are looking forward to an extremely exciting and prosperous 2021 with HAT Distribution as our new distribution partner.

HAT Distribution currently provides technical services to Australia and New Zealand channel partners. It will also help to deploy and maintain any PRTG monitoring system requirement across any industry and environment.

HAT Distribution managing director Albert Gammer says, “From simple client deployments to complex upgrades, our expert team works with all phases of our clients' technology life cycles such as planning, design and operational support of the right technologies and IT solutions.

He adds that PRTG Network Monitor is one of many solutions in its portfolio. Other solutions come from vendors including Flowmon, Insys, and RSA.

“We are big fans of the product and have seen how effective it is.  We will be helping Paessler to enter new verticals and to secure larger enterprise clients.

HAT Distribution's key mission is to underpin its services with continuous improvement, creative solutions and the innovative use of business systems and technology.

“We value partner enablement and this relationship will be instrumental in spearheading our strategic push into the enterprise with this approach,” Sultana concludes.
