NetStar joined the wave of interest in Australia's buoyant security market last week when it teamed up with IT startup Triton Secure to mar-ket the SAFLINK suite of biometric and authentication network security solutions.
NetStar and Triton Secure signed a platinum-level partnership agreement, which is the highest level partner program awarded by Triton. The agreement covers the sales, support, integration and maintenance of biometric identification and authentication solutions in Australia and New Zealand.
NetStar manager, business development and marketing, Mitch Radomir, said the deal follows the company's realisation that it is becoming harder to administer and manage its customers' passwords. `In some areas where information is very confidential it's not good enough,' said Radomir.
According to Radomir, the SAFLINK solution provided the technology at a price point that end users would be interested in. `It's now becoming feasible for mainstream IT users to replace their passwords with bioauthentication technologies,' he said.
Radomir added the market will need this sort of technology and some companies required it already. It allowed NetStar to provide higher levels of security solutions in companies, or parts of companies, which required it.
Triton Secure chief operating officer John Meddows said the appointment of NetStar as a platinum-level partner signalled a new era in the provision and administration of security solutions in Australia.
`By combining the award-winning multi-biometric and authentication solutions with the experience and expertise of NetStar, we will lead the industry's drive to secure the enterprise,' said Meddows. `The agreement with NetStar will present Australian businesses with cost-effective, proven technologies for accessing business-to-business, business-to-employee and business-to-consumer transactions.'
