Cloud and IT managed services provider SXiQ has partnered with ASX-listed managed security specialist Tesserent to combine their capabilities into a single supplier solution.
The company, formerly known as Southern Cross Computers, will support Tesserent’s expansion plans into the enterprise market for secure managed networks and secure cloud services.
Tesserent said the partnership had brought in more business, and the joint pipeline of sales is expected to contribute to its future sales growth.
“We are excited to be working with Tesserent. SXiQ is at the forefront of cloud, collaboration and digital services, and we believe that all organisations can benefit from the flexibility and innovation velocity that these services can bring, however we also staunchly believe that the security of an organisations’ data and systems is paramount,” SXiQ managing director John Hanna said.
“The SXiQ/Tesserent partnership means we can provide this peace of mind in the best possible way, bringing together the services of two great, specialist Australian companies, both providing world-class services within their respective fields.”
He adds that the partnership aims to provide SXiQ customers the peace of mind that their cybersecurity requirements are integrated in the company’s offerings from start to finish.
Tesserent chief customer officer Remko Jacobs added that the partnership was crucial to its new go-to-market partner strategy and will expand Tesserent’s ability to deliver large
end-to-end managed IT infrastructure and security projects.
“We are delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with SXiQ. Tesserent and SXiQ are like-minded organisations, both experts in our chosen fields, with great synergy from a cultural point of view,” Tesserent co-founder Keith Glennan said.
“By partnering together, we’re able to bundle our services to create a one-stop-shop for customers across infrastructure management, security, and cloud.”
The deal follows Tesserent’s $3.8 million acquisition of Melbourne-based managed services provider Asta Solutions at the end of last month, bringing in 200 clients and 85 staff from its Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland offices.
