Bloxx and Sophos Partner to Deliver Enhanced Web and Email Security
2 April 2012
Bloxx, the innovator in Web and email security and IT security and data protection company Sophos today announced an OEM partnership that will provide Bloxx customers with increased protection against harmful email- and web-based security threats using Sophos’s award-winning anti-malware technology. By combining the real-time content filtering expertise of Bloxx with Sophos’s advanced virus detection, the partnership provides organisations with improved protection against Web and email-borne malware.
“We chose to integrate Sophos’s threat engine into our products because of its high detection rates, ease of integration and proven robustness in the OEM industry,” said Eamonn Doyle, CEO of Bloxx. “Security is a growing concern for our customers, so it is essential for Bloxx’s email and Web filtering solutions to include the best anti-malware solution.”
The Sophos threat engine will complement and enhance the existing levels of security inherent in Bloxx’s email and Web filtering products, and will further enable Bloxx to provide some of the most effective and efficient content filtering solutions available on the market.
“Bloxx’s real-time content analysis and categorisation technologies, such as Tru-View Technology, work well with Sophos’s innovative proactive technologies, providing our joint customers with proven proactive content filtering and threat protection,” said Arthur Robinson, EMEA Strategic Account Manager at Sophos.
This joint effort enables customers to reduce administrative and infrastructure costs by eliminating the need for a separate, dedicated gateway malware scanning platform. Additionally, the integrated solution can easily scale to meet increasing security requirements as an organisation’s needs evolve.
Robinson concluded: “Bloxx’s selection of Sophos reinforces our level of leadership within the IT security industry. Together, the companies will provide clients with an easy-to-manage, integrated gateway malware defence system.”
