UK and Ireland based Maildistiller goes to market with Zscaler’s SaaS web security
Sunnyvale, California, September 9, 2009
Zscaler, Inc., the market leader in cloud-delivered, multi-tenant Security as a Service (SaaS), and Maildistiller, the market leading provider of hosted email protection solutions for businesses, today announced Maildistiller will distribute Zscaler’s web security service through their large network of channel partners. Now small to medium business in the UK and Ireland can be protected with the type of security and compliance service usually only affordable to the world’s largest IT organizations.
Maildistiller carried out a rigorous search and evaluation of all possible SaaS web security vendors to complement its email services. Zscaler was unique in many aspects – ultra low latency, true scalability, a worldwide presence, web 2.0 controls and coverage for mobile workers. Zscaler’s comprehensive functionality, coupled with low Total Cost of ownership (TCO), resulted in the selection of Zscaler.
“Zscaler’s ease of deployment and administration was far superior to any other solution we looked at,” said Colm McGoldrick, founder of Maildistiller. “With unique benefits like real time granular reporting and ultra low latency Zscaler clearly is the best service for web security.”
“Maildistiller is an ideal go to market partner for us in the UK and Ireland as they are a well established brand which manages billions of messages,” said Jay Chaudhry, CEO Zscaler. “Through our white label offering they have already brought many customers on the service and are proof of how fast and easy to use it is.”
Der Cremen of Datalogix who is a partner of Maildistillers, said “We recently signed up one of our largest customers to Maildistiller’s WEBaware service powered by Zscaler. Since then, by controlling personal web use with quotas and allotted times, they have seen increased employee productivity and by the second week of their subscription had already seen a return on investment. We recommended the Maildistiller and WEBaware bundle for Internet and email management because we believe that an in-the-cloud service is the most effective way to manage the increasing risks associated with the Internet, and because there is no software or hardware required. WEBaware is competitively priced and, with web security, user management, compliance and reporting, offers more than any other service we looked at. At a time when everyone is looking to manage costs, we were confident that WEBaware was the best solution on the market for our customers.”
