OKI has appointed Chris Thorley as New Zealand Channel Manager, reaffirming the business printer manufacturer’s commitment to local resellers.

As reported by Reseller News, OKI also recently appointed Dove Electronics as its new distributor in New Zealand, providing access to the full range of OKI products and consumables.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
