SMX signs FX Networks as platinum reseller

Kiwi-owned SMX has signed a partnership with FX Networks that sees FX become a platinum reseller of the vendor's cloud email security suite.

“We know SMX by reputation. It’s the leader in the cloud email security and hosting space with a high quality product and high quality support infrastructure. SMX is the one that our account managers want to work with. The product and the culture are a good fit for us,” says Murray Jurgeleit, FX Networks' executive director.

“Every customer is a bit different. We have partners for mobile and telephony. Now with SMX we have a complete cloud email hosting and security package. We have promoted SMX in the past. Now we’ve formalized the relationship with a Platinum level agreement, which gives us the option of either bundling SMX with other customer services, or simply facilitating a direct relationship between the customer and SMX. We’ll do whichever best suits the individual customer," he adds.

According to SMX's vice president of global sales, Tiaan Blaauw, the reseller agreement with FX Networks is the outcome of mutual respect built up over time.

“We already have 25 customers in common, weighted towards the Government and Health sectors where SMX is the dominant cloud provider. This reflects the growing importance of data sovereignty, which SMX protects by only filtering email within New Zealand. SMX’s recent major upgrades to its data loss prevention and hosting capabilities have also been an important growth driver," says Blaauw.

“As SMX moves towards a ‘channel only’ model, the quality of our reseller partners is critical. We’re delighted that FX Networks has chosen SMX as its cloud email supplier of choice as it moves to broaden its range of add-on services to its customers."
