Sydney-based reseller, Plug & Play Computers, has struck its first distribution deal with software security vendor, Message Partners.
The company will distribute Message Processing Platform (MPP), which features an email defence and archival system that provides a virus and spam filter, per-user spam controls, content filtering, surveillance, quarantine management and attachment controls.
Plug & Play director, James Joyce, said it had used the product for about two years on its Ezylink Internet customer base before signing the distribution agreement.
"MPP had no presence here and we thought 'great, let's do it'," he said. "We haven't been in distribution before. This allows us to start dealing with resellers, like ourselves and distributors, which is what we really want to do."
Joyce said he would like to work with resellers in the SME, government and education markets.
"It's those types of markets that resellers like us don't have access to," he said. "Hopefully they will have access to an existing market where they can implement this straight away and take advantage of it. All tiers of mail servers, in any size, can use this product."
Resellers will receive a sizeable discount off the retail price, Joyce said. MPP also comes with a 30-day free trial for customers.
