New partnership promotes secure email security appliance

London, UK (14th April 2004) – BorderWare technologies announced today that it has signed an agreement that will enable Civica, one of the UK's most experienced providers of public sector consulting, software and services, to resell MXtreme Mail Firewall, the number one email security appliance. Civica provides software and services to local authorities, criminal justice organisations, healthcare and education establishments as well as key markets in the private sector.

MXtreme is the only email security appliance with a solid security foundation based on 10 years of real-world deployment experience and an EAL4 certification background. It is this qualification that has attracted Civica to MXtreme as no other email security product available on the market has this high level of security built-in, which is a key factor when selling to the public sector.

“MXtreme has proved itself to be a formidable force against the risks that threaten email,” comments Stephen Hedegaard, Sales Director of Civica Services.

MXtreme provides complete protection, defending an organisation’s email systems from denial-of-service attacks, spam, viruses and malformed message and protecting confidentiality with encrypted delivery and secure web mail. MXtreme is already in use by many local Government and health authorities and it is envisaged that this new relationship with Civica will help build upon this market even further. BorderWare Technologies was introduced to Civica through a mutual partnership with distributor, Arc Technologies.

Peter Cox, Vice-President of BorderWare Technologies says, “We are pleased that Civica has agreed to promote MXtreme and look forward to a fruitful relationship. As Government organisations become more focused on email communication it is gratifying to see that security is their number one priority.”
