- FleXos is the first company in Belgium to provide customers with SaaS Web security -

LONDON and BELGIUM – 15 July, 2008 - FleXos, the Belgian security specialist, today announced it is the first company in Belgium to offer a complete Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web security solution with technology powered by ScanSafe. Their service provides complete security for Web and instant messaging (IM).

FleXos offers its customers a range of services such as Security Audit, Network Asset Management, Software Compliance and Security-as-a-Service.

“Our customers look to us to ensure their bandwidth is cleaned at source so that they don’t have to worry about the risk to business reputation of operations that can result from Web security breaches,” said Jean-Paul Rosette, CEO FleXos. “Many of our customers do not have the in-house resources to monitor and secure Web usage and deliver round the clock protection from malware. They certainly don’t want to install and manage yet another piece of hardware or software, which is why offering security-as-a-service is critical” adds Rosette.

As a fully managed service, the new offerings from FleXos require no hardware, maintenance or upfront capital costs and deliver real-time scanning of Web and IM traffic. As a result, the services increase productivity, reduce bandwidth consumption and offer a lower total cost of ownership than hardware or software solutions. In addition, by removing the burden of maintenance, the solutions free internal IT resources, allowing them to focus on projects directly related to an organization’s core competency.

“With an ‘in the cloud’ service, FleXos has been able to quickly and easily provide its customers with a complete managed security service from one trusted source,” said Eldar Tuvey, CEO ScanSafe. “This strategic alliance allows us to extend the reach of our services to Belgium and validates the growing market demand for Web Security-as-a-Service.”

FleXos also protects roaming workers using the recently launched Anywhere+ service, technology from ScanSafe, as part of the SaaS solution. Anywhere+ provides real-time protection from malware and enforcement of acceptable Internet usage policies for all users surfing the Web regardless of their location, allowing businesses to easily extend their security perimeter to anywhere their employees work.

Marc Engrie, ICT services manager at Sanoma Magazines, has been using the SaaS security solution for four months. Engrie comments “There was a growing realization that Web threats are now evolving much more rapidly than before. We have found that the service has already saved us 3 days per month in administration time allowing us to focus on activities that add value to the business.”
