Collins says that in FY16, Quantum will continue to build on its regional channel partners’ success by providing them with additional archive, backup and storage solutions for the cloud and data centre.

Going forward, the company will also be focused on recruiting new partners in the video surveillance, data centre archive and backup, media & entertainment, and high-performance computing segments.

In his 30 year career, Guy has developed high-level strategic partner engagements for several leading vendor organisations within the Asia-Pacific region.

“Quantum is positioned to add value to existing and future partner offerings and meet the most demanding workflow challenges that end users are facing,” Guy adds.

“I’m eager to work with our existing channel partner community to give them the sales and presales support they need to create demand in the market, as well as welcoming new partners on board in the coming months.”

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.

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.
