WatchGuard Technologies Appoints Kyocera Australia as a Platinum Partner in Australia and New Zealand

SYDNEY – 20 March 2024 WatchGuard® Technologies, a global leader in unified security, today announced that it has appointed Kyocera Australia as a second Platinum Partner in Australia and New Zealand.

The relationship with Kyocera in Australia and New Zealand reinforces the relationship between the two companies in Japan where Kyocera has been a WatchGuard Technologies Platinum partner since 2018. During this time, Kyocera has offered the WatchGuard Firebox high-performance firewall as a complement to its overall multi-function printer device business providing users with enterprise-grade security.

This service will now be replicated in Australia further enabling Kyocera Australia to provide powerful performance and affordable printing while fortifying customer security. As part of the process, Kyocera undertook WatchGuard certification to validate its Platinum partner status in Australia and New Zealand.

Mark Vella, Head of Marketing & Business Planning, Kyocera Australia, said, “Kyocera is committed to managing our products and services with the most advanced security technologies possible for our customers. We take the security of our customer’s information extremely seriously and understand that in today’s rapidly evolving business environment, we must provide the most rewarding customer experiences that are second to none in the industry.

“Partnering with WatchGuard Technologies will ensure that customers will have additional confidence and peace of mind to move their documents securely and conduct seamless digital business operations with leading firewall technology.”

Kyocera Australia will offer the WatchGuard Firebox T-25W SD-WAN ready appliance ideal for customers with a few users and simple networking needs, such as remote virtual offices and homes, as well as the WatchGuard Firebox T-45CW firewall which is ideal for small to midsize organisations requiring a device with strong throughput and enterprise-grade security. Each package includes all the traditional network security services typical to a UTM appliance: IPS, antivirus, URL filtering, application control, spam blocking and reputation lookup. It also includes a centralised management and network visibility capabilities, as well as standard 24×7 support via WatchGuard.

Anthony Daniel, Regional Director Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, WatchGuard Technologies, said, “We have a great relationship with Kyocera in Japan and are excited to mirror this relationship in Australia while at the same time tapping into the digital business skills and experience of the company and its Huon IT expert managed services and cybersecurity organisation.
“The partnership presents unmatched synergies both from a channel alliance perspective, but also from their solutions capability coupled with Kyocera’s reach across Australian and New Zealand business.”

As a WatchGuard Technologies Platinum Partner, Kyocera Australia will have a dedicated WatchGuard executive sponsor and can attend an on-site visit with WatchGuard for integration, marketing and sales planning.
