Marshal lays off staff, looks for developers

A 'small number' of staff at Marshal Software have been made redundant, following NetIQ's purchase of Marshal in December.

A "small number" of staff at Marshal Software have been made redundant, following NetIQ's purchase of Marshal in December.

John Skeates, head of content security at Marshal Content Security Solutions, the NetIQ business unit that Marshal became, says some processing functions of the unit are being re-located to the US and Europe.

"We're moving to a follow the sun approach, where support is delivered for eight hours from New Zealand and Asia-Pacific, eight from the US and eight from Europe," Skeates says.

Previously, support had been provided around the clock from New Zealand.

There has also been some consolidation in finance and administration, he says.

However, development, product management and technical support will remain in New Zealand and the unit is looking to hire "high-class developers".

Approximately 40 staff remain at Marshal Content Security Solutions. When NetIQ bought the company, it had a head count of 57.
