Australian-owned IT security product developer Cipher Communications has signed up Getronics as its national service provider.
Cipher develops and manufacturers IT security products such as firewalls, PKI and encryption technology and biometrics. Getronics will now manage the installation and management of several of these products, as well as providing remote help-desk and onsite engineering support. The partnership essentially gives the two companies the ability to offer IT security as a managed service.
Sladjan Jovic, managing director of Cipher Communications, said Getronics was chosen due to its 100-plus service locations around the country as well as its consultants from around the globe.
