Mi5 Adds Reseller Program

Mi5 Networks announced the Webgate Channel Partner Program for resellers looking to tap the market for Secure Web Gateways

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Mi5 Networks, the web security gateway company, today announced the Webgate Channel Partner Program for resellers looking to tap the market for Secure Web Gateways, which protect organizations from web-borne threats including botnets, spyware, and viruses. The program is designed to attract Best-of-Class regional VARs, while maximizing margins and minimizing channel conflicts. Resellers can now provide customers a complete URL filtering, Web Malware, and Botnet protection solution for the same price as their URL filtering renewal budget. Mi5 Networks sells exclusively through the reseller channel in North America.

The transition of cyber attacks from email to web-based vectors has shifted into high gear over the past 12 months. According to research conducted by Google, ten percent of URLs on the Internet contain potentially harmful executables that can automatically comprise a user's PC when they visit the page. Meanwhile, research firm Gartner, Inc. predicts, "The Internet and Internet applications will be the primary sources of malware infections in the enterprise in 2008 and beyond. However, most organizations do not effectively filter malware from Web traffic. Detecting and preventing malware infections will increasingly require a network gateway at the Internet edge."

Promenet Inc., a leading provider of security, compliance, networking, and telecommunications services and solutions, is an early member of the Webgate Channel Partner Program. Says John Papaioannou, President and CEO, "Web traffic is now the easiest and most effective way for attackers to bypass traditional perimeter defenses and compromise machines behind the firewall. With Webgate from Mi5 Networks we can offer our customers botnet, spyware, and virus protection plus URL filtering for the same amount they are paying for URL Filtering-only products. Webgate is a win-win-win for everyone involved."
