LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — 15 September 2009 — ScanSafe, the pioneer and leading provider of SaaS Web security, today announced that going forward Orange Business Services will offer ScanSafe’s best-of-breed technology to its customers.
“We are delighted to work with such a well regarded and forward thinking business as Orange. The channel has always been a strong component of our business and this new distribution agreement will accelerate our continued growth into the enterprise space”, comments Eldar Tuvey, CEO at ScanSafe. “Security is an increasingly critical issue and delivering Web security as a SaaS service ensures that Orange customers are protected from the growing number of Web threats at an affordable and predictable cost.”
ScanSafe’s agreement with Orange Business Services has already proved successful with a multi-national chemical corporation choosing to implement the most scalable SaaS Web security solution. With 45,000 employees dispersed across 80 countries, the organisation required an effective solution which was completely scalable and easily deployed and maintained across the global spread of its businesses.
“We chose ScanSafe’s technology as we want to offer the best possible Web security to our customers in order to ensure their business, network and employees are protected from the increasingly hostile threat landscape,” comments Gérard Garnier, VP IT services, Orange Business Services. “As a leading global MSSP, Orange continues to work with the world’s best technology and security service vendors ensuring we are able to provide our customers with comprehensive security solutions and uncompromising protection for their business.”
As a SaaS solution powered by ScanSafe, the new offerings from Orange require no hardware, upfront capital costs or maintenance and provide unparalleled real-time threat protection with zero latency. As a result, the services increase productivity, reduce bandwidth consumption and offer a lower total cost of ownership than traditional hardware or software solutions. In addition, by removing the burden of maintenance and systematic updating, the solutions free internal IT resources, allowing them to focus on projects directly related to an organisation’s core competency.
ScanSafe is the pioneer and largest global provider of SaaS Web Security, ensuring a safe and productive Internet environment for businesses. ScanSafe solutions keep malware off corporate networks and allow businesses to control and secure the use of the Web.
