Rebranding follows acquisition by Vocus Communications

Vocus Communications has announced it is rebranding Maxnet, following the acquisition of the company in June.

From August 27, the two Maxnet data centres, website, and other company collateral will be rebranded as Vocus Communications. The company will keep the Maxnet brand for its New Zealand retail ISP business.

The company has also announced that Jade Software and Konica Minolta will be two of the first New Zealand-based companies to use the newly branded Vocus services, with the former recently signing a major data centre contract. Konica Minolta, an existing Maxnet customer, will be launching a new cloud document management service hosted on Vocus cloud technology.

“We are excited to be bringing together all of our data centre, international connectivity and cloud services into the Vocus brand,” says Vocus CEO James Spenceley. “This will make it easier for our customers on both sides of the Tasman to access services in the different countries.”

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
