Two Melbourne-based IT providers, Techtify and CyberRisk, have forged an informal alliance to collaborate on customer projects.
In a departure from traditional channel alliances, which tend to take the form of formal agreements, the two companies have agreed to work together in an informal fashion, offering complementary solutions to each other’s new and existing customers.
Techtify offers a number of IT procurement and consultancy services, as well as managed services and talent acquisition. CyberRisk is a cybersecurity specialist which offers security procurement, strategy and infrastructure design, penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.
Speaking to CRN on the partnership, Techtify founder Brent Valle said that both companies bring unique skills to the collaboration.
“After a few casual conversations, and with Techtify having limited technical capability at this point in time, it just made sense for us to come together and work together,” he said.

Valle explained that combining the significant technical expertise of CyberRisk with the brand savviness and reach of Techtify was an easy thing for both parties to get behind.
“In the tech world, probably in the tech world and the channel world, it's done less, I think things are way more formal,” he said.
CyberRisk co-founder Wayne Tufek initiated the conversation between the two companies after seeing Valle’s success throughout his career with NGage Technology Group, the 2013 CRN Fast50 winner, 2014 Fast50 runner up, 9th ranked in 2015 and techtify joins forces cyberrisk informal partnership share expertise between companies
