Layer3 steps up its support for the Nix

The Wellington Phoenix are thrilled to have renewed their partnership with the club’s long-standing IT partner, Layer3.

Layer3, which has been providing IT management, security and cloud solutions nationwide since 2005, has renewed its agreement as a corporate partner.

They are stepping up their support for the club with an increased commitment for the next two seasons that will now include both the Phoenix men’s and women’s teams.

“We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with Layer3,” Phoenix general manager David Dome said.

“The whole team at Layer3 are great supporters of the Wellington Phoenix and this extends far beyond IT services.”

Late last year, Layer3 launched a new cloud-based security system which the Phoenix have since adopted. It gives the club access to services like Cloud Firewall and 24/7 Threat Response, which previously weren’t accessible for small and medium sized businesses in New Zealand.

“Our club is expanding and having state of the art online security, at home or on the road, is imperative for our operations.

“The Phoenix will now be protected literally anywhere in the world.”

Layer3 director Hayden Kirk has welcomed the opportunity to increase their support for the club.

“Layer3 is very excited to reinvest in our partnership with the Phoenix,” Kirk said.

“Helping the club take their security to the next level with world class, 24/7 protection anywhere in the world is an important step forward.”

Layer3 will also be the official matchday partner for the men’s final round A-League match against Macarthur FC at Sky Stadium on Saturday night.
