The new combined Equiinet will continue to provide VoIP, unified threat management, connectivity failover, caching, URL filtering and feature-rich communication products and services to the business and education communities via its partner channel in the UK and North America.

Equiinet’s International headquarters will be located in Las Vegas, Nevada with the UK headquarters continuing to operate from Swindon.

Keith Baker, UK Managing Director and Vice President of the new organization said, “We’ve been delighted with the progress Ubiquita has made in utilizing and promoting the Equiinet technologies over the last year or so. Leith Martin has created an excellent team and pushed into new markets in the US making a name as a quality organization that looks after its customers. The merge of the two companies was an obvious next step.”

 Leith Martin, CEO and President of the new organization said, “We are excited about the opportunity to fully join forces with Equiinet.   Equiinet has an outstanding reputation for over a decade in the UK and Keith Baker brings tremendous industry experience and will be an asset as we continue to expand globally.  This will also allow us to coordinate development to bring more products and services to market. We will be announcing our 12 month roadmap soon. Given the importance both organizations put on providing superior customer service it was a natural cultural fit as well.”

Equiinet is delighted to announce a strategic sales and integration agreement with E2BN Protex. Through this agreement Equiinet and its channel will resell the E2BN Protex web filtering service, which has been keeping children safe online in the East of England for over 6 years, and making Teachers’ lives easier. Through Protex, schools have the flexibility they need to teach with the assurance of a robust, tried and tested educational service, now backed by Equiinet, a company with over a decade of supplying and supporting security, caching and content delivery appliances to schools across the UK.

Equiinet’s Managing Director, Keith Baker, commented, “We have worked with E2BN and its LAs for many years, as our customers, and have been observing the Protex development with interest. So we’re delighted to announce that we’ve integrated this very professional product into our appliance range, and are now working with E2BN as a business partner. In addition to the UK education market, we’ll also be promoting Protex as the filtering solution of choice to our North America and Far East markets”.

E2BN CEO, Chris Kastel, said, “E2BN Protex was developed for schools’ very specific filtering needs. Schools and Local Authorities like it because as well as offering huge financial savings its ease of use also reduces the management overhead for school and LA technical staff. We have been working with Equiinet for many years and this new arrangement will make it easier for schools and businesses around the world to reap the rewards of using E2BN Protex.”
