Sophos unveils Commulynx as a new ANZ MSP

28 Nov 2013

IT security and data protection company Sophos has revealed a new partnership agreement with Commulynx, a leading technology integrator and consultancy.

Commulynx participated in high-level Sophos certification and training, to become a certified Managed Service Provider (MSP) under Sophos’s new MSP Security program launched this year.

The Sophos certified MSP program allows Commulynx to offer its customers a complete range of IT security services for networks, endpoints and mobile devices, as well as centralised management to easily manage remote locations at no extra cost.

Under the new MSP licensing, organisations are offered a flexible pay-as-you-go pricing model which requires no up-front commitments.

Broderick Smith, Client Relationship Executive and Co-Owner of Commulynx, is delighted that the company has become a certified Sophos MSP, and he said the new services model will bridge the gap in the existing security offerings it can offer its customers.

“Sophos allows us to offer organisations simple, affordable security solutions that address the latest trends in technology and the workplace," Smith says.

"From network protection to endpoint anti-virus, our clients can be confident that their IT security is second to none.”

“The benefit of providing businesses with managed security services means every dollar they spend is on business productivity.

"There are no initial costs for set-up or upgrades, and organisations can turn a managed service on and off depending on their business needs and growth, which in turn reduces ongoing internal labour costs and optimises cash flow."

Commulynx has already seen positive interest in Sophos’s security products across its client base of over 500 organisations, including small and medium sized businesses, enterprises, government and not-for-profit organisations – and Sophos makes tailoring customised services a simple process.

Broderick believes businesses are savvier than ever regarding their IT needs, and are looking for solutions that can expand and meet the business growth.

“We’ve built a strong business reputation in this market and we continue to invest in our dedicated team of certified IT experts, to provide the highest level of service and support for our clients," Broderick says.

Karen Delaney, Channel Director of Sophos ANZ, believes the new partnership will help Commulynx remain ahead of the curve in a highly competitive market.

“The new Sophos MSP program is designed to drive market success for our certified Managed Service Providers by closely aligning with their business and technical needs, and we’re excited to welcome Commulynx on board and assist them as they grow this market with on-boarding and technical support.

“This partnership will provide Commulynx’ clients with proven security services that not only meet their IT needs, but gives an organisation the peace of mind to know that the security aspects are taken care of, leaving them to focus on the core needs of running a successful business."

The new partnership takes effect immediately.
