DMZGlobal is the specialist security division of TelstraClear and Telstra. DMZGlobal is one of the leading Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) in the Asia Pacific region and as in 2009 was recently nominated for the 2010 organisational excellence in Information Security as part of the AusCERT Secure Computing Awards.

DMZGlobal made international headlines when they used Owen Walker for a number of seminars aimed at raising awareness of IT Security.

DMZGlobal also got media attention when a senior security engineer working for them ran the Race-to-zero malware competition at DEF CON (convention).

DMZGlobal provides a number of unique managed security services including the only Distributed Denial-of-service attack protection service available in New Zealand and the only In Cloud Government approved mail encryption service. Other service include firewall management, clean Internet and e-mail services, and website hosting and protection.

DMZGlobal Ltd was founded in Wellington on the 30th of August 2000 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sytec Resources Ltd. DMZGlobal was acquired by TelstraClear when it purchased Sytec Resources Ltd late 2004. Although DMZGlobal has grown significantly since the acquisition it ceased being a limited company in its own right in New Zealand and Australia when on 31 December 2006 it was absorbed back in Sytec Resources Ltd. Subsequently on 30 June 2007 Sytec was also de-registered and absorbed into TelstraClear. The DMZGlobal (Australia) Pty Ltd company was de-registered on the 10th of December 2008. TelstraClear's Large Enterprise division merged with Sytec to form TelstraClear Enterprise and Government and align the organisational structure with Australian parent Telstra.

DMZGlobal used to be famous for its Ford BA Falcons and sponsorship of a boat in the New Zealand Offshore powerboat racing series, in particular the 2002 championship winning team piloted by the company's original founder Grant Smith.
