Packet Technologies profiting from Jatheon deal

Company says demand for email archiving technology is increasing

Packet Technologies’ recent partnership deal with Canadian email archiving specialist Jatheon Technologies is paying major dividends.

The contract to distribute Jatheon’s plug-n-comply email archiving solutions was formalised in November.

Packet Technologies sales director John Crawford says sales have so far been made to Radio New Zealand, a casino, a major hotel chain and several local bodies. “For the local bodies, it addresses a number of their compliance issues,” he says.

“We’re converting customers off larger archiving products such as Commvault. That’s mainly because Jatheon is simple and cheap. Entry level is sub $10,000, and there is an unlimited user license.”

The Jatheon appliances run on multiple systems simultaneously.

Crawford says email archiving technology is in increasing demand as companies come to rely more on email as their main form of communication.

In a recent Info-Tech Research email archiving product bake-off, Jatheon’s plug-n-comply was named “email archiving champion” and top “value award winner”. The products were rated so highly that they were used as the benchmark to which all other email archiving solutions were compared.

The integrated archiving appliances offer complete in-house control of confidential messaging data, such as email or instant messages. Solutions can be optimised for any mail server, including Exchange, Notes and Groupwise.

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

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.
