Oxford, 1 July, 2008 – Proofpoint, the leading provider of unified email security and data loss prevention solutions, has announced a reseller agreement with BEW Global, an Information Asset Protection and Network Security solutions provider. The agreement is an extension of an existing and successful partnership between the two companies in the US.

BEW will resell the complete range of Proofpoint products which can be deployed across four deliverables: appliance, software, hosted or on demand - giving customers the ultimate flexibility in how they wish to secure their email.

BEW Global carries only a select portfolio of products to address a broad range of security issues including DLP, anti-virus and anti-Spam; firewall and UTM, email and web security and authentication management.

Jason Ashley, Sales Director at BEW Global Europe said: “The market has consolidated and Proofpoint delivers a robust platform that addresses the trend towards UTM and integrated security in general. Its ability to provide anti-spam, anti-virus, secure messaging and outbound content security capabilities all in one appliance is very clever.”

Ashley continued: “At BEW Global we’ve spent a long time educating the market about DLP and now we’re beginning to reap the benefits. The number of DLP specifications we’re receiving has increased rapidly. Having Proofpoint in our stable is a definite competitive advantage.”

Oliver Carter, Channel Director of Proofpoint EMEA, said: “We’re confident that we will replicate the success that Proofpoint and BEW Global have enjoyed in the US. In fact, the early signs are very encouraging.”

Proofpoint delivers the industry’s only solution for defending against inbound spam and viruses, preventing leaks of confidential and private data, encrypting sensitive information and analysing messaging infrastructures—all on a single, unified platform. Proofpoint’s unique architecture allows customers to radically reduce costs and complexity while improving the overall effectiveness of their messaging security infrastructures. Proofpoint offers customers the widest array of deployment options and is the only email security vendor to deliver its solutions in hardware appliance, virtual appliance, software and hosted service form factors.

Proofpoint delivers 99% or higher effectiveness against all types of spam email using the latest advances in reputation- and content-based anti-spam technology. Powered by patent-pending Proofpoint MLX™ machine learning technology, the Proofpoint Spam Detection™ module examines hundreds of thousands of attributes in every email—including message envelope headers and structure, image properties, sender reputation data as well as unstructured content in the body of messages—to block the most spam, attachment-based spam (including image-based, PDF-based and Excel-based spam) and phishing attacks, while automatically adapting to new attacks as they appear.
