Cybersecurity specialist firm Webroot has ramped up its New Zealand presence, joining forces with Kiwi distributor Exeed to deliver cloud-based endpoint protection and collective threat intelligence.

Terms of the deal will provide retailers, IT resellers and managed service providers (MSPs) across New Zealand access to Webroot cloud-based big data analytics, automated machine learning and intelligent endpoint security to enhance home and business protection.

“After revising our business model to focus on cloud services, we were looking for a cloud-based security partner who could not only offer best-in-class protection, but a flexible product model sold through the channel, to MSPs and as a standalone cloud solution,” says Justin Tye, Managing Director, Exeed.

“We selected Webroot for its flexible, fast and highly effective solutions, as well as its business model that clearly supports a multifaceted sales strategy, including options for MSPs and reseller partners.

“This collaboration with Webroot will provide our network of innovative and fast-growing partners access to the most advanced, cloud-based threat intelligence protection in the market.”

In short, the strategic partnership enables Webroot to continue its well-document global expansion plans through Exeed's team of sales professionals in New Zealand.

“With increased headlines of major breaches at retailers, financial institutions and technology companies, our solutions are critical to protecting businesses against the latest security threats as they make their transition to the cloud,” adds Robbie Upcroft, Managing Director, Webroot Asia Pacific.

“The Webroot big data analytics and automated machine learning offerings rapidly identify potentially dangerous incoming or outbound traffic, minimising the window of opportunity for attackers.

“As a result of our real-time protection, enterprises, MSPs and industry-leading distributors, such as Exeed, have chosen Webroot as a premier partner to ensure a flawless security transition to the cloud.”

In partnering with companies around the globe, Upcroft says Webroot provides MSPs, resellers, and systems integrators enhanced privacy, performance and protection through exclusive partner programs.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
