Wynyard Group has secured a contract with an international partner to help a leading national security bureau fight organised crime and counter terrorism.

Billed as one of the company's largest analytics deals, the value of the contract over the initial term is more than $3.2 million with approximately $2.5 million to be recognised in 2014.

The company previously advised that final contract execution and recognition of revenue from some of the larger contracts currently under negotiation may slip into early FY15 which creates a risk that it may not meet its previous FY14 revenue guidance range.

Wynyard says that this agreement "reduces but does not eliminate" the revenue timing risk outlined previously, with the company set to provide further updates as its 2014 Financial Statements are prepared and finalised.

Continuing the company’s planned expansion into the national security market and growth of its global partner program, Wynyard Group Chief Executive Officer, Craig Richardson, says this win reflects the confidence the world’s most demanding users have in Wynyard and the company’s advanced crime fighting software.

“This is an important customer with a growing problem - big data, a rapidly changing network of organised criminals and the need to rapidly surface actionable intelligence to help protect the country’s citizens and critical national infrastructure," he says.

Wynyard Group will partner with a recognised multi-national systems integrator to deliver this solution, although at present the company has refused to reveal its identity.

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.
