Hemisphere Technologies expands A/NZ portfolio with cloud security provider deal

“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."

IT security solutions distributor, Hemisphere Technologies, has signed an A/NZ distribution deal with MailGuard, adding a cloud security offering to its ever expanding portfolio.

The MailGuard deal follows a string of recent new partnerships for the company, having also signed distribution agreements with AlianVault, Beyond Trust and Endian in the last six months.

The partnerships round out Hemisphere’s security offering, complimenting its long standing partnership with internet security providor, Kaspersky Lab.

Peter Phokos, Hemisphere CEO, believes 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," Phokos says.

"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.

“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.

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

"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.”
