​Govt tasks Dimension Data with networking, security and telco services following TaaS deal

“Technology is the key to unlocking the potential for better connectivity and communications."

Dimension Data New Zealand has been selected for the all-of-government panel to deliver Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS), tasked with providing networking, security and telecommunications services.

As reported by Computerworld New Zealand, the TaaS supplier panel provides a range of cross-government telecommunications and managed security services sourced from a competitive local market.

“Dimension Data pioneered providing consumption-based telecommunications services to government with one.govt which is used by over 50 agencies,” says Jo Healey, CEO, Dimension Data New Zealand.

“We are now excited to be able to take this further and innovate more with our TaaS solution.

“To be successful in today’s modern world, we need to be connected. Dimension Data TaaS incorporates connectivity, security, and the communication and contact centre tools required by agencies to collaborate more and provide better services to all New Zealanders.

“With our solution, employees will have direct access to the resources and information they need to work from anywhere, in any agency and at any time. Comprehensive privacy settings ensure the security of information is maintained at every step.”

Healey says Dimension Data TaaS is offered as a service, transferring the ownership to an external, specialist supplier, allowing agencies to buy capability on demand.

In addition, Healey says Dimension Data can also manage and oversee all TaaS services through aggregation.

“Technology is the key to unlocking the potential for better connectivity and communications,” Healey adds.

“This will ensure a positive outcome for all New Zealanders, and Dimension Data is excited to be part of that solution.”

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.
