​Equinox IT granted Govt Web Services Panel membership

Auckland-based provider approved to offer eight services to government agencies.

Equinox IT has been appointed as a panel member for the new All-of-Government Web Services Panel.

The panel provides government agencies with access to an all-of-government service for the common capability procurement of a range of web services, replacing the previous Common Web Services Panel.

“Effective use of web technology is essential to every future-looking government agency that wishes to provide convenient and cost effective services and experiences to their customers and staff,” Equinox IT consulting services general manager Deane Sloan said.

“We're very happy to be able to offer a range of website and web application services under the panel to help government agencies improve their customer and internal experiences.”

The panel includes 11 service categories, with Equinox IT approved to offer eight services to government agencies, spanning information architecture, content design, user insight and application testing.

In addition, the Auckland-based provider can offer front and back-end development, alongside native application development and ongoing support.

“Equinox IT has a long and successful history of developing and supporting software applications, web applications and websites for its clients,” Sloan added.

As the only New Zealand-owned Microsoft Gold Partner for the DevOps competency, the appointment follows a year-long hiring spree for the business.

As reported by Reseller News, Equinox IT recruited Microsoft Azure consultant Aben Samuel to join the company's Azure practice in October 2016, while also hiring David Reiss to the role of principal consultant of digital transformation in August 2016.

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.
