CA in good position with Partner Pack inclusion

MICROSOFT has included Computer Associates’ (CA) EZ Antivirus software in its Partner Pack Windows XP.

The software provides daily updates to protect against viruses, worms and Trojans, automatic, real-time and scheduled scans of files, downloads and attachments and interactive virus detection messages.

CA New Zealand channel manager George Hladilo is excited about the opportunities this could bring.

“We’ve been partnering with Microsoft on a number of applications and the Partner Pack puts us in a unique position. It shows what CA is doing globally,” he says.

The software is currently unavai-lable to New Zealand retailers. Hladilo says the US strategy takes the commercial application and transfers it to retail.

“We’d be silly not to take up this opportunity in New Zealand but need to consult with the channel first and ensure the infrastructure’s in place.

“We don’t have a commercial model in New Zealand as yet, but intend to make it available. It’s part of our future plans but I don’t want to go into details or time frames until I have a few ducks lined up.”

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.
