Telstra acquires VMtech to secure network applications

Telstra has acquired Virtual Machine Technology (VMtech) in hope to accelerate the growth of its network applications and business in Australia.

VMtech, a popular Australian IT provider, delivers and manages enterprise-grade hybrid cloud, connectivity and security solutions.

Telstra’s executive director for business technology services, Christopher Smith, said VMtech’s end-to-end approach to designing and managing secure hybrid cloud solutions complements the existing suite of technology consulting services Telstra offers across public cloud, networks, security, and applications, according to ARN.

‘A secure hybrid cloud approach’

Smith added to ARN: “As organisations digitise their business they are increasingly moving from a basic cloud-first model to best-fit solutions that often involve a secure hybrid cloud approach.

“As a result, customers are looking to us to provide hybrid solutions for their network, security and cloud infrastructure, as well as support for defining, architecting, implementing and managing these solutions.”

Smith also noted cloud services in Australia and Asia are growing, so growth will continue as more organisations adopt hybrid cloud solutions.
