Kent Riboe, Managing Partner at MT Proxy, recently spoke with Paul Orford in an interview for the latest edition of Game Changers Magazine. We’re pleased to share the interview with you here.
Tell us about MT Proxy.
We provide custom-built proxy server networks. Our solutions are designed to help brokers reduce client-side latency and boost client connectivity worldwide. They are also designed to help brokers protect their businesses against external threats, such as DDoS attacks and latency arbitrage. As such, we help brokers offer a faster, more reliable online trading service.
Why did you start the company?
We felt brokers needed an easy way to set up this type of trading infrastructure. In theory, a broker could set up their own proxy server network. But in reality, many of them simply wouldn’t have the internal resources to do it. They would need to hire someone with the right expertise – someone who could help them find the best server providers and the best internet hubs around the world. They would also need to hire a small team of staff to manage the network – a team that could help them to manage the network and respond to any network threats. MT Proxy gives them an easy alternative. We can set up and run their proxy server networks, and we do it for a fraction of the cost.
How has the company evolved since then?
We’ve always been there in the background. In recent years, we’ve been focusing on our clients and on our services. We’ve automated more processes and added more solutions. We’ve expanded our reach in key markets, such as Africa and Asia. We’ve also improved our offering, added new package deals, and introduced a two-week free trial for new clients. Over the last 12 months, we’ve been focusing on our partner network. We’ve launched partnerships with major industry suppliers such as Tools For Brokers and Centroid Solutions. We’ve also got additional partnerships lined up for 2022. We’re pleased with our progress over the last decade and we look forward to helping more brokers in the years to come.
What does MT Proxy stand for?
Quality, Stability and NoDrama. Our focus is offering an “install and forget” solution for brokers. We want to make everything as easy as possible for our clients. That’s why we offer a robust service that includes everything from setup and configuration, to optimisation and network performance. Our focus is also on ensuring network stability. That’s why we help brokers improve their network security and why we ensure they get 24/7 network support.
What’s important to you as Managing Director?
Efficiency. We automate everything. That’s what enables us to offer the best solutions and to keep things running smoothly for clients.
What makes you different from your competitors?
Proactiveness. A lot of technology companies are reactive. We’re doing everything we can to take a proactive approach to running the company. We’re proactive in our approach to clients – offering great deals, easy onboarding, and 24/7 support. We’re also proactive in our approach to product development – anticipating client needs, automating processes, and rolling out improved solutions. We believe that this approach enables us to add value and to offer an even better service. It makes a huge difference.
Do you believe other brands will follow your lead?
We believe that low latency trading is more important than ever to traders. As such, we expect to see more low latency solutions on the market in the coming years. Our focus is on client-side latency. We were the first company to offer proxy server solutions, and we’re still the go-to industry provider for MT4 datacenters and MT5 access servers.
