SEEBURGER Signs Strategic Partner Datamation in Malaysia

SEEBURGER, the global business integration and enterprise class Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions provider, announces a strategic partnership with Datamation (M) Sdn Bhd (‘Datamation’) to deploy the SEEBURGER MFT SeeFX private Cloud-based file exchange solutions in Malaysia.

With more than 29 years of presence in Malaysia, Datamation is one of the leading business solution providers with regional operations in Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia. Datamation’s clients include Ministry of Education of Malaysia and Singapore, Department of Statistics of Malaysia and Singapore, AKPK (Agency of Bank Negara Malaysia), Sime Darby Medical Centres, Sunway Group, Jambatan Kedua Sdn Bhd (wholly owned by Ministry of Finance Malaysia), Star Publications, TH Properties and Construction Industry Development Board Malaysia etc.

According to James Hatcher, Regional Director of SSEEBURGER Asia Pacific, Datamation is the FIRST appointed reseller partner in the Asia Pacific region to provide and implement SEEBURGER's Cloud-based file sharing solution in Malaysia –the third largest economy in South East Asia and the 29th largest economy in the world.

“Malaysia was also selected to be our Asian regional headquarters in 2012 and we have been aggressively searching for local partners with the right mix of offerings to accelerate delivering our offerings to this market. Datamation’s experience, market knowledge and strong customer base make them an ideal candidate for representing SEEBURGER,”

Prior to today's announcement, Datamation has been a very active reseller of SEEBURGER's Business Integration Suite (BIS).

“This SEEBURGER-Datamation partnership is part of the company's strategy to increase its penetration in Asia Pacific where SEEBURGER already has a significant presence in countries including China, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Australia," adds Hatcher.

Embarking on an Increasing Demand for File Exchange Solutions

According to Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG)'s latest survey, 28 per cent of organizations have established corporate accounts for online storage and file sharing services. This is expected to hit 50 per cent by the end of 2013.

Hatcher shares, “As enterprise-level file sharing fast becoming popular, so does the potential exposure for cyber attacks. Security is also becoming the main concern for enterprises wanting to adopt Cloud-based file sharing platforms.”

“Our partnership with Datamation is strategic to address those gaps. Driven by the increasing market demands, SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (MFT), as component of BIS, will be sought after to encrypt, track and trace exchanged business files of any size for security, governance and compliance purposes. It will also be leveraged upon to extend Datamation’s managed data capabilities.”

“In addition, SEEBURGER’s cloud option to deliver BIS-based enterprise application integration services will also empower Datamation to offer B2B, MFT and application-to-application integration under the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model for rapid, low-cost deployment,” explains Hatcher.
