Fans wait hours for new Xbox

The Xbox 360 launch throughout the country saw some consumers wait for hours to secure their console. Keen gamer Wayne waited for eight hours outside EB Botany Downs, in an event that had 150 people through the doors at midnight. Several other retailers around the country had similar launches, with sales of the Xbox 360 opening at midnight.

Frazer Scott, regional sales manager for Xbox Australia and New Zealand, is reporting sales to consumers to be over 7,000 units nationwide. “We are extremely pleased with our sales to date. We saw the strength of the Xbox 360 product drive strong pre-orders, and clearly those retailers that have developed their pre-order systems and engaged their customers early out-performed other segments.”

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.
