“With this appointment, we intend to develop a stronger distributed market base and bring our solutions closer to SMEs at state and local levels in Malaysia, beginning with Penang and Kuching, where Mavisco has particular strengths.
“With a broad network of resellers and service locations nationwide, Mavisco will also help us establish a broad market footprint for our managed enterprise cloud security services, to better serve government and public sector organisations that have multiple branches around the country, as well as SMEs,” he added.
