New sales manager and partner programme to fulfil customer demand

Brussels, Belgium (21st October 2004) – BorderWare Technologies announced today that it has appointed Erik Notermans as Sales Manager for the Benelux region and has launched a new partner program, MXFusion, in the region to help support the channel. This latest European expansion is in response to the growing demand of BorderWare’s leading email security perimeter appliance, MXtreme Mail Firewall.

Erik Notermans has worked within the ICT security industry throughout Europe for over 6 years. His last appointment before joining BorderWare Technologies was Chief Operating Officer for Cosyco IT Solutions, a leading Benelux IT security distributor. Erik Notermans will be responsible for building closer channel relationships within Benelux and to realise MXtreme’s sales potential within the region.

MXtreme Mail Firewall is the ideal platform to replace existing mail gateways with a Certified Secure solution. It installs at the network edge to deliver the most comprehensive perimeter security for an organisation's email infrastructure. MXtreme is the only mail firewall to gain a Common Criteria EAL4+ security certification, assuring users that their email systems are protected against spam, viruses, Denial-of-Service attacks like MyDoom, buffer overflows, directory harvesting, and other vulnerabilities that could paralyze email communications. MXtreme also provides the industry's first failsafe clustering architecture for high-availability to ensure zero downtime, zero latency and zero message loss.

Erik Notermans, Sales Manager of BorderWare Technologies, Benelux says, “Working for BorderWare during these exciting times was too good an opportunity to miss. Email security is a major headache for many organisations and the fact that MXtreme solves all of them in one appliance has put it in great demand. We are now actively seeking specialist security resellers to help us fulfil customer requirements and have already launched a comprehensive partner program to help support them.”

The MXFusion Partner Program provides a holistic approach to partner development, management, support and growth, through three levels of participation. To date, BorderWare has shipped more than 2000 MXtreme systems worldwide, primarily through channel partners. The three levels of the MXFusion Partner Program, Premier Partner Tier 1, Premier Partner Tier 2 and Associate Partner, will enable BorderWare to build on this success and forge strong value-based partner relationships to deliver sustainable, profitable business at an accelerated rate.

“The appointment of Erik Notermans demonstrates BorderWare’s confidence that the Benelux market will provide new opportunities to both us and our partners,” comments Peter Cox, Vice President of BorderWare Technologies. “Erik’s knowledge of the region, expertise in the security industry and proven track record is the right combination to help grow our business in Benelux.”
