Trust in a Digital World


Nathan Curcio: Technical Consultant, Entrust


Secure and frictionless identity and access management – designed for MSPs and Security Resellers.

Fueled by mobile and cloud adoption, the traditional moat surrounding a castle defense is obsolete.

Today more than ever, people demand seamless, secure experiences, whether they’re crossing borders, making a purchase, or accessing corporate networks. With Entrust’s unmatched breadth of digital security and credential issuance solutions, it’s no wonder the world’s most entrusted organisations trust Entrust.

Join us in this talk to understand how Entrust delivers a chain of trust to your customers.

Backup365 – it’s Australian for Microsoft Backup!

Let’s take a deep dive – new portal and much more


Andrew Johnson, Backup365 CEO

Paul Colby, Backup365 CTO


Backup365 is 100% Australian owned and developed, 100% built for MSPs, 100% supported locally. And, yes, we’re taking on the world, but we need your help!

Backup365 is built from the ground up for IT providers – automated provisioning, maintenance free, and simple /transparent billing.

At last customers get it – they own their data; they need to control their data because Microsoft 365 does not and will not. It’s their responsibility - which translates to it’s also your responsibility if you are their trusted technology adviser.

Every feature of Backup365 has come as the result of feedback from our partners - and we want more.

During this session, Paul and Andrew will share some of our latest features which are about to be released, as well as discuss our plans and ideas for 2021. We’ll explore Backup365’s new portal and take a deep dive into the roadmap.

It is an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback that will help shape the product to be leading edge on the international stage. You’ll see why Backup365 is Aussie for Microsoft Backup.

Aaron Jervis, General Manager, Reef IT

Presenting via webinar

In a word, time. Having control of the Registration and Name Servers, aka DNS, for your clients domain name means no more waiting for Website Developers to make a change to MX record in the middle of a migration. More importantly control over who can make changes to said DNS records, no more random website dev's breaking email delivery. Not to mention when you do it right, it can generate some easy recurring revenue.
