Ironport protects 1 million Australians

Supplier News

IronPort Systems Australia ., the leader in electronic gateway security, now protects more than one million Australian and New Zealand users from attempted criminal and other unwelcome intrusion.

The milestone was announced in Sydney today by Michael J. Bosch, the managing director of IronPort Systems in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, who said his company went over the one million mark with an order through EDS for three additional systems to be installed by one of its biggest regional customers, a leading Australian financial institution.

The user, one of IronPort's major Australian customers, has added three IronPort model C300 email security appliances to its existing infrastructure in a new deal valued at some AU$500,000.

In addition to anti-virus and anti-spam technologies, the C300 is available with IronPort Reputation Filters to provide an outer layer of defence by identifying suspect senders of email.

Also, with IronPort Virus Outbreak Filters (VOF) which invariably isolate new virus outbreaks many hours before conventional solutions are in place. In the case of the recent Mytob virus, users of IronPort VOF were protected 38 hours before anti-virus solutions were available.

Congratulating EDS on its new win with his company's offerings, Tom Gillis, IronPort's San Bruno-based senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing noted his company has become the fastest growing provider of email security in the ANZ market and thanks to the reputation of its products and the commitment of its partners such as EDS, Gillis sees no signs of this growth rate abating.

In addition to EDS, IronPort Systems' Australia and New Zealand reseller network includes other such leading organisations as Channel Worx.
