Document management specialist Techtonics has signed to be the local partner for US-based managed security services provider Messagelabs.
Business development manager Amanda Robilliard says Messagelabs’ profile is “non-existent” here and her company will initially focus on building it in Wellington, where Techtonics is based, and then grow it nationally.
“A lot of Fortune 500 companies in America are using it and in the UK and Australia it’s going off,” she says. “It scales right down to the little guys and for those companies who don’t want to spend a lot of money on servers, they can get into it straight away.”
The company’s suite of security services includes content and image control, anti-virus, anti-spam and encryption and archiving – across email, web and instant messaging platforms.
Messagelabs’ Australian staff will run a seminar in Wellington on August 7 introducing the services.
Currently services are delivered to 15,000 customers globally.
“They’re backing us to be the local partner. Our own experience is already demonstrating that Messagelabs can save companies a significant amount in IT administration costs and effort,” Robilliard says.
Techtonics has also recently added the Documentum document-management product range to its offerings.
