Commtouch Introduces On-Premise Email Security Services for Service Providers

New offering continues strategy of enabling partners to deliver cloud-based Security-as-a-Service

MCLEAN, Virginia, January 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH), a leading provider of Internet security technology and cloud-based security services, today announced the general availability of Commtouch On-Premise Email Security services for the service provider market. The launch marks the first new product delivered under the Commtouch strategy to provide OEM vendor and service provider partners the technologies and services they need to deliver cloud-based email Security-as-a-Service (SecaaS).

On-Premise Email Security augments the existing market-leading messaging security suite that includes: Commtouch Anti-spam, Virus Outbreak Detection, IP Reputation, and AV, which are cloud-assisted services for service provider environments. The new services deliver additional simplified messaging security and optimization functionality, enabling Commtouch to better address the requirements of any service provider that offers email services to end users.

With the new solution, Commtouch partners can more effectively address the twin challenges of improving email Quality of Service (QoS) for customers while reversing the ever-rising cost of service delivery. Because the new services include technology, process, and people, efficiency can be achieved even when partners lack internal resources to manage email security efforts, or they have a complex email infrastructure requiring a customized solution.

The new solution leverages email security technology assets which Commtouch acquired as part of its purchase of Eleven GmbH. The Eleven products are already in use at global organizations such as BMW, SAP, Siemens and Deutsche Telekom / T-Online.

"Our launch of Commtouch On-Premise Email Security for security providers further expands our worldwide opportunity for growth," said Shlomi Yanai, CEO of Commtouch. "This new service continues the transformation of Commtouch from a vendor of security technology components and cloud-assisted detection services, to a Security-as-a-Service supplier that can provide partners with options to greatly lower cost, simplify ownership, and maximize performance for email. Commtouch On-Premise Email Security offers market-proven benefits for service providers desiring the highest level of email security without the ever-increasing expense typically associated with achieving it."

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff hap...
