SMX signs New Zealand resellerJune 15 - 11am 9
Cloud email security firm SMX has signed up Fujitsu New Zealand as a local reseller who will offer the SMX anti-spam and anti-virus service as part of its managed services offering for New Zealand customers.
SMX Managing Director Jesse Ball said, “Cloud offerings are quickly gaining traction in New Zealand and it is great to be partnered locally with a global leader such as Fujitsu. The partnership further validates the strategic work we’ve done in making the SMX service fast and easy for companies to slot into their wider offerings.
“It also shows the importance of being able to filter mail ‘in country’. Competing services route customer emails through offshore datacentres, whereas our strategy is to use local datacentres with local support. That’s proving to be a powerful differentiator for us internationally as well.”
The agreement is part of “continued strong growth” for SMX in 2010, with high demand in New Zealand being matched by strong international growth, particularly in Australia and India, said the company.
Fujitsu New Zealand Managing Director, Stuart Stitt, added, “Fujitsu has partnered with SMX due to their strength in email filtering in New Zealand, and offering local service and support, which is key to Fujitsu customers. In addition, SMX has a proven service with a great value proposition for Fujitsu customers in our region.”
