Secure Computing apppoints MPA

US-BASED Secure Computing has appointed MPA as its New Zealand distributor.

The security vendor makes firewalls, access tokens and content filtering products. It claims it already has more than 100 New Zealand customers, including Telecom NZ, Tower Insurance, Brother and the Canterbury District Health Board.

MPA will initially distribute the Safeworld family of products, including Safeworld Premier Access, Safeworld for Citrix and other authentication products. It will also distribute Secure Computing’s Firewall/Security Appliance and web filtering solutions, including Sidewinder and SmartFilter.

Secure Computing already works with partners in New Zealand, including Kaon Technologies, Computerland, Datacom and Gen-i.

Sydney-based regional manager for Secure Computing, Eric Krieger, says his company chose MPA for its specialist skills in security.

Auckland-based MPA specialises in server-based connections and the centralised management of IT systems. Managing director Steve Macmillan says Secure Computing presents a logical extension to its existing range. Both parties also seek extra resellers.

“MPA is keen to work with suppliers who have solutions that allow us to provide value add and expertise. Secure Computing’s offerings require a degree of technical expertise and knowledge and we believe MPA, and our channel partners, will derive a good profit from it,” Macmillan said.

This week, MPA runs a series of "Gold Medal Solution Seminars" featuring Secure Computing's Krieger; plus Wyse, Allott and Citrix.

The seminars are in Christchurch on Wednesday, Wellington on Thursday and Auckland on Friday.

Other vendors MPA represents in New Zealand include Wyse, Protocom, Esker, Stallion, Sco and Fenestrae.
