Fujitsu prepares to launch GoDaaS for NZ Govt

“All New Zealand government agencies have an opportunity to experience one of the most advanced managed desktop services in the world.”

Fujitsu has today announced its Government Desktop as a Service offering, GoDaaS, built specifically for the New Zealand Government.

As part of the DaaS Common Capability panel, GoDaaS is designed to benefit every agency wanting to enable a secure BYOD workplace and remote options for staff, while avoiding expensive and lengthy desktop operating system upgrade projects.

Based on Fujitsu’s global Workplace Anywhere service, which currently supports over 200,000 users, the launch of the offering will take place in Wellington on March 4.

“Fujitsu recently presented GoDaaS at the global Citrix Summit in Las Vegas where it was the star of the show,” says Stuart Stitt, MD, Fujitsu NZ.

“All New Zealand government agencies have an opportunity at the launch event to experience one of the most advanced managed desktop services in the world.”

Stitt says participants will see GoDaaS in action and learn about the commercial model, its self-service capabilities, the switching between virtual and traditional desktops, how it integrates into existing environments, and witness how a smartphone can be used as a fully functional thin-client.

But GoDaaS isn’t just virtual desktops, adds Stitt, it is a full end-user workspace service that provides traditional and virtual desktops, remote support, onsite support, application packaging, and hardware devices.

Fujitsu is a member of the Government ICT Common Capability DaaS panel managed by the Department of Internal Affairs, the Government’s ICT Functional Lead.

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.
