MailGuard on the hunt for partners in NZ

17 Nov 11

Australian online email security vendors MailGuard are launching a partner program in New Zealand in a bid to re-enter the market here.

In business since 2001, the Melbourne-based company operates in 21 countries via over 300 channel partners, and targets the SMB space.

Operations have lagged in New Zealand, though, and the company is keen to re-invigorate its brand here.

MailGuard CEO Craig McDonald says the partner program offers a quick and easy way for partners to generate recurring monthly revenue.

"We’re proud of the success we’ve already helped partners achieve abroad,” McDonald says, "and look forward to being able to do the same in New Zealand.”

The partner program offers three levels of partnership, and includes a range of training, enablement, provisioning and support services.

"Our partner program gives outsourced IT providers a quick and easy way to generate recurring monthly revenue, while also reducing the burden on their help desk, and boosting bottom line,” McDonald says.
