“VMVault is one of the leading hosted virtualisation companies in Australia. This relationship gives VMVault access to leading security solutions that provide them with strategic advantages in the market,” Forsyth said. “It creates the platform to provide SMB partners Sophos security products in the cloud, while helping VMVault forge a distinctive place in a highly competitive market, broadening its portfolio and partner value proposition.”
Under the partnership, VMVault provide its network of SMB MSPs with the infrastructure required to host cloud solutions, with Sophos providing its complete security suite of products, including endpoint, network, data, web, mobile and email security.
Radek Tkaczyk, Senior Systems Consultant at VMVault, said the partnership would offer customers and partners “robust and cohesive solutions.”
“We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Sophos, a respected industry leader. Working with a vendor that has both deep and broad solutions available in the cloud, from unified threat management, mobile, anti-malware and anti-spam, will bolster our offerings for the SMB segment. ”
According to Tkaczyk, “Sophos and VMVault had worked hard to ensure they addressed the challenges that had emerged as “top-of-mind in our discussions with the SMB IT Professionals Association.” “So far we’ve received constructive feedback, with those partners involved in trials already reporting a reduction in spam volumes.”
Tkaczyk said the partnership was already in effect, with VMVault already signing up partners.
