Reseller News - 20 October 2016

The Instillery has signed a partnership with Zscaler, in a bid to provide customers with deepened security, data protection, visibility and control in the cloud.

In keeping with the New Zealand company’s cloud-first approach, terms of the deal will see The Instillery become a provider of Zscaler across the country.

The Instillery CEO, Mike Jenkins, said that as cloud adoption continues to escalate across New Zealand, IT and security teams are having to adapt trust models.

“In 2016 it’s no longer sufficient to build secure walls around your infrastructure,” he said.

“With so many elements now outsourced to cloud and SaaS providers the security stack now needs to extend controls, which otherwise circumvents traditional on-premise security appliances.

The rise of shadow IT, the seemingly endless list of household brands getting breached coupled with tighter data privacy regulations compel businesses to extend data controls into the cloud applications in use by employees - providing security and protection not only from outside the organisation but also from within.”

The Instillery - which recently took home the Mid-market Partner of the Year honours at the 2016 Reseller News ICT Industry Awards - is turning heads in New Zealand with its new approach to delivering critical information technology services designed for the cloud.

As one of the country’s fastest growing cloud service providers, the Kiwi owned company enables businesses to leverage the power of cloud computing, analytics and applications, with operations across Australia, the UK and US also.

“We strategically select partners based on their ability to exceed market expectations around cloud security innovation and customer experience,” Zscaler vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan, Scott Robertson, added.

“We’re delighted to join forces with The Instillery who are expert in their field and deliver best-of-breed solutions to their enterprise and midmarket customer base.

“This exciting new partnership allows us to maximise The Instillery’s skills and experience in providing solutions for New Zealand public and private sector clients through the intelligent application of our suite of cloud security solutions.

“These provide a safe and productive internet experience from any device and from any location around the world.”

Zscaler’s global customer base includes CSR Australia, GE, Exxon/Mobile, Nestlé, and the UK National Health Service.
