Hemisphere Technologies signs ANZ distie deal to bolster portfolio

Hemisphere Technologies, the IT security solutions distributor, has signed an ANZ distribution deal with MailGuard to add a cloud security offering to its portfolio.

The MailGuard deal follows a series of recent partnerships for the company. In the last six months they signed distribution agreements with AlianVault, Beyond Trust and Endian.

The partnerships ‘round out’ Hemisphere’s security offering and 'compliment' its long standing partnership with internet security provider, Kaspersky Lab.

Peter Phokos, Hemisphere CEO, says a cloud security vendor was an essential addition to the company’s offering.

“Previously, there was a lot of hesitation about the cloud from businesses but we’ve well and truly passed that point now; the cloud is here and it’s here to stay.

“As more businesses make the shift towards hosted commodity services, we needed to expand our offering and provide our channel partners the best tools to keep their customers protected in this new environment,” he says.

Phokos says, “MailGuard holds a reputation as one of Australia's best technological innovators and is a trusted name in enterprise cloud security.

“With simple solutions that are easy to onboard, in addition to providing expert round-the-clock support to clients and partners, MailGuard is a very welcome addition to our security suite.”

MailGuard’s services include email security, image monitoring, email hosting, filtering, continuity and archiving, as well as website filtering and monitoring.

The cloud based solutions manage online threats, are interchangeable and stackable with other anti-virus engines, and are said to have 100% service uptime.

The solutions are targeted toward both SMBs and larger enterprises.

Craig McDonald, MailGuard CEO and founder says, “MailGuard is excited to partner with Hemisphere Technologies because it is a specialist distributor of security solutions.

“It understands cloud security and the need for multilayered defence, which is required to protect businesses today. Above all, Hemisphere is Australian owned and operated, as is MailGuard. Together we can provide the best cloud email security and industry leading, local support.”
