South Africa-based IT distributor Axiz, has announced it is launching its Advanced Services offering.
Building on accumulated technical expertise over its technology portfolio, Axix stated that Advanced Services provide network and security monitoring, management and remedial services via a dedicated network and security operations centre (N-SOC) beginning on May 1, 2020.
“We have, over many years, built up a strong implementation capability and this takes it to the next level,” said Jacques Malherbe, CTO, Axiz. “Taking advantage of our pool of certified experts and our strong vendor relationships, we are building out a portfolio of managed services around our network and security offerings. This will enable small and medium businesses to take advantage of enterprise-level network and security management services on a month-by-month or consumption basis.”
Malherbe explained that while large companies have access to managed services offered by large service providers, these have remained out of reach of local small and medium enterprises. “For companies serviced by smaller system integrators, there are a number of services that are critical in the modern world, but which are difficult to access,” he noted. This has left them reliant on their internal IT teams and technology partners to ensure that they remain secure and compliant.”
According to Axiz, its Advanced Services is launching with four services, which will be expanded over time.The services risk and compliance management, asset management, monitoring and logging, and cyber security management.
Malherbe added that: “With technology skills at a premium, Advanced Services gives our clients access to certified expertise that would be out of reach for many. For our partners, this allows them to increase the value they provide to their customers, building on suites of implementation services.”
He pointed out that for small and medium companies operating in uncertain times, Advanced Services allow them to focus on their business secure in the knowledge that their technology investments are working for them.
“These technical services will be supported by a full feature service desk, which, paired with Axiz’s digital platform, offers our partners unrivalled business practice building capability,” he said.
