Solution to small business JetStream woes

Renaissance Brands sees solution to small business JetStream woes

AUCKLAND – 2 July 2003 – Renaissance Brands announced today that it has signed an exclusive agreement with YellowTuna Networks for the sales, marketing and distribution of the Mako automated internet services system. Mark Dasent, General Manager of Renaissance Brands, says, "this is the best JetStream and network security solution we have seen for small to medium business."

It is as simple to install as plugging in a telephone and as secure as any other product on the market.

The Mako system comprises an ADSL modem firewall Router appliance with VPN capabilities that uses secure central command servers for easy configuration, maintenance and reporting.

"YellowTuna fits well in our Networking and Internet Security division. We have a high profile in this area of the market and there are many opportunities for the product," Dasent says. "This is something new to the security market, and we're not aware of any other product that provides the ease of configuration and proactive reporting capabilities as those provided by the Mako. It's very clever and intuitive, and eliminates the complications involved in Internet Security."

YellowTuna have spent the last 30 months developing and testing the solution, and views Renaissance Brands as the ideal New Zealand partner to take the Mako system to market. The Mako system is already finding international acclaim. Bill Farmer, YellowTuna Networks' CEO says, "The deal with Renaissance Brands in New Zealand is the first in a worldwide rollout of the Mako system. This is a unique solution that solves all the current problems being experienced with broadband internationally."

Over the next few weeks, Renaissance Brands will be recruiting targeted resellers who show commitment and who are active in this area of the market For more information, please call Renaissance Brands on (09) 968-3725 or email
