Argent increases global reach through acquisition

Telecommunications software developer and integration specialist Argent Networks has extended its international reach with the purchase of Australian outfit Integration Management (IM).

Although Argent already has clients in the Australasian market the acquisition of IM gives the company an immediate footprint into other global markets.

Chris Jones, Argent CEO, says the deal means his company can continue to grow in key global telecommunications markets, in particular Asia-Pacific and the US.

Jones says IM’s products are complementary to Argent’s billing and CRM solutions.

“The acquisition was an ideal fit for us. I’m sure it will assist in growing Argent’s overall financial and global market position as a leading supplier of operational support systems and billing solutions to telco suppliers everywhere,” he says.

In 2004 Argent scored $8 million in venture capital funding to expand its operations in the Middle East and Africa and has been involved in deployments in the post-war reconstructions in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Jones says Argent is growing rapidly in all its markets and is looking to make further acquisitions to accelerate penetration into other segments.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
