St. Bernard Stops Skyriver Spam

St. Bernard announced that Skyriver Communications has deployed LivePrism throughout its organization and to selected customers

SAN DIEG0 -- St. Bernard (OTCBB: SBSW), a global provider of security and hosted office solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced that Skyriver Communications has deployed LivePrism throughout its organization and to selected customers. St. Bernard's on-demand services include hosted email, instant message (IM), Web filtering and hosted office solutions. LivePrism eliminates spam and ensures that Skyriver's customers are compliant with federal and industry regulations.

Skyriver Communications is a Broadband Wireless Communications carrier, serving SMBs throughout Southern California. The company required an easy-to-use and cost-efficient service to reduce email spam and ensure that its customers in the financial-services industry meet necessary compliance regulations by archiving all electronic messages.

After testing solutions from multiple hardware- and software-based vendors, Skyriver selected LivePrism as the most reliable offering to manage configurable and scaleable email, Web and IM filtering. In January 2007 alone, LivePrism identified and stopped 75,542 spam emails from reaching users on the Skyriver network.

Designed to specifically meet the needs of SMBs and leveraging on-demand infrastructure, LivePrism services are remotely managed and delivered to Skyriver over the Internet, removing the burden of costly hardware installations and sustaining IT management. Skyriver and its customers now have access to the power of enterprise-class solutions, but with the flexibility to choose services and scale as business requirements dictate.

"Since our customers consider spam to be the most pressing IT issue, we needed a solution that provided exceptional functionality at a reasonable price," said Brad Slavin, VP, network engineering and operations at Skyriver. "We chose St. Bernard's LivePrism because it is scalable and requires minimal maintenance and support, while offering maximum security and reliability."
