The Instillery announces new Zscaler partnership for NZ

By Sara Barker

Auckland-based ICT communications provider The Instillery has now become a provider of Zscaler's internet security operations across New Zealand.

“We strategically select partners based on their ability to exceed market expectations around cloud security innovation and customer experience. We’re delighted to join forces with The Instillery who are expert in their field and deliver best-of-breed solutions to their enterprise and midmarket customer base," comments Scott Robertson, Vice President Asia Pacific and Japan at Zscaler.

“This exciting new partnership allows us to maximise The Instillery’s skills and experience in providing solutions for New Zealand public and private sector clients through the intelligent application of our suite of cloud security solutions.  These provide a safe and productive internet experience from any device and from any location around the world," Robertson continues.

The partnership will allow customers to access security, data protection, visibility and control, all of which is hosted in the cloud - what The Instillery CEO Mike Jenkins says will benefit IT security teams.

“In 2016 it’s no longer sufficient to build secure walls around your infrastructure. With so many elements now outsourced to cloud and SaaS providers the security stack now needs to extend controls, which otherwise circumvents traditional on-premise security appliances," Jenkins says.

“The rise of shadow IT, the seemingly endless list of household brands getting breached coupled with tighter data privacy regulations compel businesses to extend data controls into the cloud applications in use by employees - providing security and protection not only from outside the organisation but also from within," he concludes.
