The Instillery Becomes Zscaler's First Managed Services Partner in New Zealand

11 April 2022

In a milestone development, The Instillery has been appointed as Zscaler's first Managed Services Partner in New Zealand. The foundation of this partnership was laid eight years ago when The Instillery became the sole IT partner authorized to deliver Zscaler solutions in the country. Since then, The Instillery has accumulated extensive expertise in designing, deploying, and managing scalable Zscaler solutions for prominent New Zealand organizations like Auckland Council, Watercare, and the Financial Markets Authority.

Jeremy Nees, Chief Operations Officer at The Instillery, expressed enthusiasm about the enduring partnership, stating, "Zscaler’s focus on secure digital transformation is a perfect fit for us to be able to service New Zealand enterprises that need to emerge stronger from the pandemic and want to drive a great digital experience for employees working in a hybrid work environment. Having a specialist security team was something many organisations wanted but could not afford.”

"By offering a managed service, we will be able to provide enterprises with the opportunity to replace legacy point solutions with the full suite of Zscaler cloud security digital experience and zero trust solutions, including Zscaler Digital Experience and Zscaler Cloud Protection."

These could help deliver security for businesses with distributed workforces and to meet compliance and governance reporting obligations.

Foad Farrokhnia, Head of Channels and Alliances, Asia-Pacific and Japan for Zscaler, emphasised the significance of managed services companies like The Instillery in guiding organisations during their transformation journey. He stated, "Zscaler and The Instillery will enable our customers to drive a great employee and customer experience through a single, efficient, zero-trust architecture as they undergo digital transformation and move off legacy security infrastructure," Foad said.  

At the heart of The Instillery's managed services is our Security Operations Centre, which leverages advanced solutions from LogRhythm and CrowdStrike to swiftly detect and respond to potential network anomalies. These technologies complement Zscaler's zero-trust cloud-native architecture, ensuring a robust security ecosystem for clients.

With this exciting collaboration between The Instillery and Zscaler, businesses in New Zealand can expect a heightened level of security, performance, and overall digital experience as they navigate the complexities of the modern hybrid work environment.
