Network Box forks out $US22m on restructure


Managed security vendor, Network Box, has undergone a $US22 million restructuring process to unify its global operations.

Newly appointed A/NZ CEO, Neil Campbell, said this would keep the company consistent across the different regions and offer the same support levels to its global customers and partners. Campbell replaces Keith Glennan, whom has been promoted to the global CEO's post.

"What the merger does is give us the ability to service regional customers in Asia-Pacific and some of those multinational customers headquartered in the UK. It's the start of building the company globally so we can better support our customers," he said.

Campbell said it also helped provide better integration between its network operation centres based locally, in Hong Kong and in the UK.

"It is much simpler for us to fail customers over to another network operation centre in case of a power outage," he said. "Onsite support can now be arranged centrally and delivered regionally."

Alongside the business restructure, Network Box plans to release a new version of its operating systems and hardware to complement it. Campbell said he was interested to expand into other technology areas, such as VoIP application gateways.

He also planned to grow the local business and was looking to double the company's staff. It currently has 12 employees.

"We also need to increase our presence in Queensland, SA and WA and I'll be looking for a couple of national resellers to cover those states," Campbell said.

Prior to joining Network Box, Campbell worked for Dimension Data as its national security practise manager.
