Kicking off next week in Chicago, this year's tour includes professional sales training and technical workshops that provide resellers with essential information to increase revenue opportunities and help customers stop unwanted Internet content.

"Much of SurfControl's success is due to the strength of our global reseller partners," said Steve Purdham, SurfControl's CEO. "SurfControl resellers assist customers in finding solutions to manage the ever-increasing content security risks like spam, unauthorised instant messaging and peer-to-peer
communications. We are proud to continue our Worldwide Partners in Security Tour to support our resellers and provide them with valuable strategies to increase their bottom line."

close sales. In-depth technical workshops will give resellers comprehensive knowledge of SurfControl filtering products, covering topics such as installation, message administration and Adaptive Reasoning Technology (ART). Attendees will learn how SurfControl E-mail Filter provides a multi-layered approach to managing spam in the enterprise and how the company's newest product, SurfControl Instant Message Filter, can intelligently control the risks of unauthorized public instant messaging
(IM) and peer-to-peer communications.
