WOBURN, Mass. – April 10, 2007 – Reflexion Networks, the leader in address-based email threat protection, today announced an exclusive distribution agreement in the U.K. and Ireland with Sigma Software Distribution, further expanding the reach of its global reseller channel. Sigma Software Distribution is a leading U.K. distributor with relationships that span the globe. The company will provide Reflexion Total Control (RTC) as part of its managed services offering, providing resellers with the ability to protect their customers from spam in any language, phishing attacks and other malicious email content.

The onslaught of unwanted email is a well-chronicled problem, resulting in lost productivity, wasted time and loss of customers for resellers. More than 200 solution providers and VARs in 20 countries are actively promoting Reflexion Total Control, a managed service that provides email users with granular control over access to their inbox for a pristine email experience every day. Partnering with Sigma helps Reflexion expand its presence in the European small and medium-sized enterprise market, and in those industry vertical markets where lost productivity costs are the highest.

“Through our partnership with Reflexion, we are providing an effective email security solution specifically designed for resellers. Reflexion brings new technology to the fight against spam and other online threats, packaged in a way that helps our resellers capitalize on the fast-growing market for managed services,” said Clive Larkin, head of sales at Sigma Software Distribution. “Sigma supports this solution with Value Added Distribution and discounts, making Reflexion Total Control the most functionally rich, competitive and resale attractive solution.”

Benefits of Reflexion Total Control to the reseller include:

· Full co-branding of the user interface and custom messages for viral marketing and brand awareness.

· On-demand provisioning of new customers and users.

· Robust administration capabilities, including unprecedented user configurability and special diagnostic tools.

· Added safeguards against email/business interruption – incoming email is automatically queued for delivery if a customer’s local email server fails.

· Detection of zombie machines and open relays, with automated alerts.

· Unlimited and automated Address-on-the-Fly™ to protect one’s primary email address.

· A wide range of blended features, including whitelisting, content filtering, and challenge-response.

· Technology that requires no hardware, no software and zero on-going maintenance for both email administrators and end-users.

“Reflexion provides users with innovative and effective tools that enhance the email experience with improved security, privacy, convenience and trust,” said Scott Barlow, vice president of sales at Reflexion Networks. “We are excited to be working closely with Sigma to make Total Control the ideal solution for Sigma’s resellers and their customers, who can now enjoy renewed confidence in email.”
