Bloxx Launches Web Filtering and Security for Managed Security Service Providers
Edinburgh, 11 November 2014 – Bloxx, a leader in content filtering and security, today announced that it has launched Web Filtering and Security for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). The products are based on the existing Bloxx Web Filter and Secure Web Gateway products with the addition of professional services that will enable MSSPs to quickly deploy, manage, sell and support Web Content Filtering and Security to their customers.
The market for managed security is seen as a growth area and recent reports from Frost & Sullivan state that it expects the market in EMEA to be worth $5 billion by 2018, with the North America expanding to $3.9 billion within two years. The key drivers fuelling such growth in the MSSP market is the need for organisations across all sectors to effectively mitigate security risks at a reduced cost.
Charles Sweeney, CEO, Bloxx commented: “The launch of our MSSP product is in direct response to many of our existing channel partners approaching us with customer requests about managed service for Web filtering. We believe the combination of our unique approach to real-time content analysis in our products and the professional services we have created will deliver valuable new revenue opportunities for channel partners.”
One of the first channel partners signed up as an MSSP, is CM Security. Ron Hulme, Managing Director at CM Security commented: “We have been trialling the Bloxx MSSP product and have been impressed with how easy it is to deploy and manage. The flexibility and features will provide a compelling proposition for our customers who face an avalanche of security threats and are looking to move to a managed service model to help moderate that risk.”
The Bloxx MSSP product is available now in EMEA and will be available in North America in Spring 2015. More information about the Bloxx MSSP product is available here
