Roaring Penguin Software’s CanIt Integrates With Level Platforms’ Managed Workplace to Monitor Anti-Spam Appliances

OTTAWA, July 29, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Roaring Penguin Software Inc., makers of the acclaimed CanIt line of anti-spam solutions, announced a partnership with Level Platforms, a leading provider of remote monitoring and management software. This partnership solves for resellers the challenge of monitoring the anti-spam portion of their customers' e-mail communications infrastructure.

Managed Workplace(r), Level Platforms' award winning software, allows resellers to provide peace of mind to clients knowing that their enterprise anti-spam solutions are monitored 24/7 and are functioning smoothly. With CanIt and Managed Workplace, resellers can take advantage of three added revenue streams; they can generate incremental revenue with each new small business mail server they sell, realize continuing revenue for software support and capture ongoing revenue for monitoring the anti-spam appliances.

"We welcome Roaring Penguin Software to the Level Platforms' Partner Program as a Certified Vendor and a leader in anti-spam solutions," said Ryck Marciniak, Director, Vendor Alliances for Level Platforms. "We are pleased to see an influential anti-spam vendor recognizing the need to provide remote monitoring to their reseller base."

Roaring Penguin's CanIt product line contains three anti-spam solutions which are available in both software and appliance formats. The CanIt solution combines high-performance mail filtering with ease of setup and administration. It is the ideal solution for small and medium enterprise environments looking for accurate, plug-and-play anti-spam/anti-virus filtering. The CanIt solution, which features automatic updates, is an efficient and scalable architecture designed to suit the smallest to the largest enterprises. Multiple CanIt appliances can be clustered to handle very large mail volumes.

"We've found that more of our customers are demanding remote monitoring of the health of their anti-spam servers," explains David F. Skoll, Roaring Penguin's president and CTO. "Level Platforms provides tools that make it easy for our reseller partners to monitor what is going on with their appliances."
