Firstly, Craig Murphy has taken the position of Channel Account Manager, based in Auckland and with an entire New Zealand market remit.

In addition, Michael Watson has joined the storage specialists as Business Development Manager based in Brisbane, covering Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory.

Having both joined StorageCraft earlier this year, Murphy arrived from Dimension Data, where he spent more than six years, first as HP Business Partner Solution architect and later as HP Alliance manager, earning the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Platinum Partner of the Year Award in December 2015.

Meanwhile, Watson arrived at StorageCraft from IQ3 in Brisbane, where he was an account executive for almost four years.

Earlier, Watson held a similar role with Intalock Technologies, after moving from XSI, where he was an account manager role for more than six years.

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.
