StorageCraft plans rural seminars

Soft Solutions, working with Australia-based StorageCraft, has held seminars over the last few weeks around the country, launching ShadowProtect IT Edition — a backup system.

Greg Wyman of StorageCraft says the seminars were a complete success and that further presentations are planned.

“We got a lot of feedback from resellers and end-users about holding seminars in the smaller communities. We have planned to take our presentation to regional places like Napier and Dunedin, where resellers seldom get to see real-time presentations for a product such as ShadowProtect.”

Wyman says that his company has received requests from resellers for a technician-licensed product that requires no installation or licence on the target machine. “ShadowProtect IT provides the solution for this problem and will suit small to medium businesses, regardless of their geographic location.”

Paul Leslie, Soft Solutions business development manager, says the seminars achieved a good balance between resellers and end-users and resulted in a significant amount of interest and orders.

“Greg’s enthusiasm for the product just carries through. The majority of interest is from resellers as it gives them a powerful tool. Having said that there are a number of large organisations wanting to use the product inhouse,” he says.

Leslie says the most important benefit of the seminars is purely getting out and showing the product to people and being on hand to answer their questions. “A lot of the channel was comparing it to Ghost as that seems to be what they’re using. There’s still disbelief about the licensing restrictions for Ghost but we’re working to change that.”

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.
