As alliance partners, Proofpoint and Purewire are engaged in joint sales and marketing activities to bring enterprise customers security solutions that protect against email and Web threats. Proofpoint offers complete protection against inbound and outbound messaging threats, as well as archiving and email encryption technology. Purewire's SaaS-based Web security service inspects outbound Web traffic for safety and compliance and analyzes Web site response traffic for malicious programs and untrustworthy users. Both Proofpoint and Purewire solutions can be deployed entirely in the cloud or in a hybrid configuration with an on-premise messaging or Web gateway.
"Our team has a rich history in the email security industry, as well as a keen understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated across Web and email," said Mike Van Bruinisse, co-founder, president and CEO of Purewire. "Our channel partners are excited about being able to offer the Purewire and Proofpoint services as a joint offering, particularly since SaaS provides them a low barrier to entry, reduced costs and easier access to innovation."
"Purewire's SaaS-based Web security solutions are the perfect complement to our SaaS email security, archiving and data loss prevention products," said Ramon Peypoch, executive vice president of business development for Proofpoint. "SaaS is a cost-effective way for enterprises like TSCG to address the risks posed by today's increasingly complex blended threats. The comprehensive approach to email and Web security delivered by the combination of Proofpoint and Purewire provides the best possible protection and control, at the lowest total cost of ownership."
