Jason Garland and the team at Secure Access IT have been serving the technology needs of the Sunshine Coast for 20 years. When Jason founded the company in 1999, he sought to provide effective and unique technology solutions; 20 years later, this is still the clear objective for the team at Secure Access IT.

With technological capabilities continuing to develop, and arguably the need for these technologies with it, Secure Access IT looks to understand clients’ business objectives to provide tailor-made solutions. These solutions fit the unique requirements of each business without unnecessary or premature implementation. They analyse current business practices to formulate a strategy which either improves operational efficiency to facilitate growth or provides a customer- engagement platform to drive revenue. Secure Access IT serve their clientele by engaging with each business as a unique enterprise with individual requirements.

The team at Secure Access IT is one of the key factors to the business’ success. Jason is the business founder and Chief of Technology. His passion for technology in business drives him to provide the best technical services to the Sunshine Coast. Jonathan and Magnus are the two Business Account Managers. Their backgrounds in technology enable them to deliver relevant and strategically aligned technology solutions. This passion also leads them to attend many networking events and support local charities. Then, there is the team of dedicated and talented technicians. As the core of the business, they work to continually improve, research and develop to ensure they provide the best support at the highest quality. With this team, Secure Access IT is able to serve their customers with a host of services and products.

These include cloud technologies - such as file sharing, data recovery, web services, phone systems, infrastructure, as well as CloudReady Express assessments to analyse the appropriateness of cloud technologies for their clients’ businesses.

They provide technology assessments to determine the effectiveness of current technology practices and then give advice. By taking the time to understand unique business objectives, Secure Access IT can suggest innovative strategies to ensure all technology helps their clients to achieve success.

Then, there are their managed services which provide customers with peace of mind knowing they have assistance 24×7×365 through the help desk. The team uses advanced processes to monitor client systems, allowing them to provide insightful support. Clients have confidence in their technology investments, knowing they have reliable and effective assistance if needed.

TECHNOLOGICAL SERVICES: The talented technician team can service hardware, software, infrastructure, connectivity issues and network designs. With the multi-skilled team, all problems can be addressed quickly and effectively. If clients have existing technologies supplied by a third party, Secure Access IT can work with clients and suppliers. This may mean developing documentation, improving current work practices, contract negotiations, keeping suppliers accountable and ensuring the effectiveness of design deliverables.

SECURITY SERVICES: Ensuring any technology, proposed or in-use, is secure and recoverable. By performing security assessments, Secure Access IT can determine their clients’ vulnerability to technology breaches and implement strong defences. Furthermore, they can assist in developing data backup infrastructure and practices and perform disaster recovery if crashes do occur.

Although offering a range of services, the most common issue that clients have is the ineffectiveness of current technology practices. Often complicating technology may seem the best way to take your business to the next level. However, without thorough analysis and planning, this may lead to workplace confusion and wasted finances. Secure Access IT works with businesses to create solutions which increase the effectiveness of existing technologies while suggesting product replacement where necessary. They also provide business reviews to keep their clients up-to-date with exciting advancements, possible challenges and their potential future market position.

The team at the Maroochydore office has worked with many businesses from the Wide Bay region to the Brisbane CBD. They also service clients nationally and internationally, in a range of industries including entertainment venues, theme parks, medical practices, construction and educational institutions, and professional services. This service has brought national attention and Secure Access IT has twice been awarded a CRN Fast 50 for its rapid and continued growth in the technology industry.

With its hand-picked team, Secure Access IT provides reliable and effective technology solutions. The team takes the time to understand client needs, whether this is a complete technology overhaul or no

change at all. Their attitude to business means their solutions help client businesses thrive through technological advancement
and support.

From time to time we are asked by our industry magazines our thoughts on where our industry will go, here is a quick insight into our thoughts.

Director, Secure Access 

Focusing on the business aspect, the internet of things wrapped with business intelligence is a natural catalyst not only for our business, but all businesses. With the accumulation of internet of things devices, end users will be supplied with a lot of data from a lot of sensors. 

The driving force then will be how to understand the information they are receiving, how and why it is valuable to their business – and ways in which they may capitalise on this knowledge. 

Along with the sprawl of the internet of things in the future will come complementary channel work in networking, security and storage that resellers will need to be across to seize the opportunities presented. 

As a whole, while the internet of things is nice to have by itself, turning the investment into returns is what will drive the market space and its value to the channel to a new level.

From time to time we are reviewed by our industry magazines, here is an article on a recent WIFI installation we completed for AussieWorld ThemePark on the Sunshine Coast.

Xirrus partner Secure Access has installed an extensive new wi-fi network for Queensland theme park Aussie World.

Aussie World, located on the Sunshine Coast, sought a fast wireless network for both customers and employees – and commissioned its almost decade-long IT provider Secure Access for the job.

The wi-fi, now in place for two months, supports free customer internet access throughout the 30-ride park, along with front gate and point-of-sale systems.

“We think our guests will really be blown away when they connect to our wi-fi,” said Aussie World chief operating officer Aaron Flanagan. “Our goal is to put Aussie World on par with the most elite theme park destinations in the world.”

Secure Access business development manager Corrie Orpin worked in conjunction with Xirrus staff for the Aussie World project, which only took a week to go-live after a fortnight of requirements gathering.

Secure Access is currently ranked number 36 in the CRN Fast50, in honour of its 36 percent growth in revenue last year. Director Jason Garland told CRN that the service provider had already been using Xirrus’ technologies when Aussie World approached it.

“[Xirrus’] unique platform and exceptional features have lead to robust solutions for many of our clients,” he said.

The park hopes the fast wi-fi would encourage visitors to post their experiences on social media. As well as its rides, Aussie World is home to a tourist hotel, an events venue and a retail village.

Xirrus stated that future business functions such as RFID and ride analysis could also be accommodated on the new Aussie World network.

“Xirrus has opened the doors to an entirely new realm of what is possible with wi-fi in the park and we are incredibly excited about our future,” Flanagan said.

Aussie World, located in Palmview, won a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award last year. Secure Access is also a Sunshine Coast business, with its office in nearby Buderim.

The value of the project was not disclosed.

From time to time we are reviewed by our industry magazines, here is an article on a recent Apple installation we completed on the Sunshine Coast.

Queensland reseller Secure Access has won a contract with Matthew Flinders Anglican College on the Sunshine Coast in a deal worth more than $1 million.

As a part of the project, Secure Access deployed 117 iPad Air 2s, 554 13-inch MacBook Airs and 50 MacBook Pros, including installation and accessories.

The combined retail value of the hardware is more than $800,000, with the remaining cost understood to be for related services.

The school aims to have a 1:1 student-to-device ratio. Currently, Matthew Flinders maintains this ratio for its senior students.

Secure Access has worked with Matthew Flinders on its IT infrastructure for the past three years, but expanded its relationship with the latest deal with the full Apple hardware solution.

“It’s about empowering students to learn and adapt to the changing needs of the real world,” said Secure Access director Jason Garland. “We are very proud to be a part of providing these fantastic resources to Australia’s future leaders.”

The roll out was completed ahead of the deadline of the start of the 2015 school year.

Secure Access’ hardware solutions provide a range of Apple, PC, laptop and tablet devices that mainly cater towards education, although the company also supplies Apple products to commercial clients.

The Queensland provider lists Avnet as its distributor for Mac hardware.
