Mako Signs Supply Agreement with Telstra

Mako Signs Supply Agreement with Telstra, Expands Australian Market Presence

Australia’s largest telecommunications company to bundle Mako security services with broadband Internet connections

AUCKLAND, New Zealand – 24 April, 2014 – Mako Networks has announced a new partnership with Telstra to incorporate its PCI DSS-compliant network management service in Australia as part of a new offering to connect and secure Telstra business broadband customers.

The deal with the largest telecommunications provider in the country significantly expands Mako’s reach and channel to market in Australia.

Under the terms of a new agreement, Telstra will bundle Mako’s network appliances and service into a broadband connection package for business customers. The bundle will provide a complete package for businesses, including secure Internet access, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, content filtering, wireless failover and more.

“We take customer privacy and data security very seriously. We are always looking at ways to improve our security systems and we continue to invest in new security capabilities,” says Telstra’s Chief Procurement Officer, Richard Allen.

“We’re pleased to offer Telstra customers this service as part of an expanded broadband offering that will connect and secure their operations.”

“The security landscape in Australia is quickly shifting. As the legitimate economy continues to do well, so too the criminal economy seeks to make its own payday in attacking businesses and consumers,” says Bill Farmer, Mako Networks CEO.

“Our agreement with Telstra will enable Australian organizations to deploy world-class security to protect their businesses and customers from modern cyber threats. For Mako this is an opportunity to further our global reach with a significant partner that has demonstrated capabilities in the Australian and global markets.”

Mako network appliances deployed through Telstra will also feature an optional wireless failover service, where in the event of a fixed-line network outage the network will automatically re-route and connect to the Internet using a high-speed wireless signal to keep payment traffic flowing. This non-stop networking service will be included as part of a customer’s monthly fees.

Though signed with Telstra Australia, the contract also opens avenues to deploy Mako’s solution with the wider global network of Telstra operations by participating in joint bids and international customer opportunities.
