Publicly listed virtual network provider NetLinkz has added its first customer to its Sydney IoT Lab after rolling out a pilot version of its NetLinkz Virtual Invisible Network (VIN) for Sydney-based Omega Dev Group.
According to NetLinkz, VIN is a globally patented networking technology providing organisations with the ability to connect sites, devices and staff over the internet on a generally invisible network.
Omega used the NetLinkz secure collaboration solution for its group chat and file management systems, replacing various ad-hoc secure collaboration services, which Omega found cumbersome to manage and difficult to maintain.
The platforms are accessed by various Omega team members and partners globally across Windows, MacOS, Android and iOS devices.
Omega Dev Group managing director Blair Hickey said it had been searching for a simple yet highly secure solution to help manage sensitive communication and collaboration between its local and international partner organisations.
“Working with the NetLinkz IoT Lab team, we were able to quickly establish a working pilot within our own unique environment,” Hickey said.
NetLinkz executive chairman and CEO James Tsiolis added the highly secure collaboration services that Omega required were well suited to the NetLinkz secure collaboration and VIN solution.
In July, NetLinkz signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Grant Thornton to actively market and sell NetLinkz's products to their customers and associates.
This occurred not long after NetLinkz established a joint venture in China through iSoftStone Information Technology Group and further expanded its distribution arrangements in that market after signing agreements with JAST and Sichuan Meixunda Communications, which is a subsidiary of China Communications Services.
