ScanSafe Continues Channel Growth With Business Fitness Partnership
LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ — ScanSafe, the pioneer and leading provider of SaaS Web Security, today announced that its award winning SaaS Web security service will be available through Business Fitness, a trusted advisor of information technology and telecommunications . Moving forward, Business Fitness will offer ScanSafe’s technology as the premier SaaS Web security service to its clients.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide our award winning technology to Business Fitness customers,” said Eldar Tuvey, CEO at ScanSafe. “As SaaS continues to gain momentum, we are excited to continue ScanSafe’s growth with the addition of top-notch channel partners like Business Fitness.”
As a SaaS solution powered by ScanSafe, the new offerings from Business Fitness require no hardware, upfront capital costs or maintenance and provide unparalleled real-time threat protection with zero latency. As a result, the services increase productivity, reduce bandwidth consumption and offer a lower total cost of ownership than hardware or software solutions. In addition, by removing the burden of maintenance, the solutions free internal IT resources, allowing them to focus on projects directly related to an organization’s core competency.
“ScanSafe is a wonderful partner with a highly compelling, next-generation Web content and malware filter,” said Dave Hynek, president at Business Fitness.
ScanSafe’s partnership with Business Fitness has already proven successful, with MidWest Airlines choosing to use the SaaS Web security service. Midwest Airlines, a Wisconsin-based airline, features jet service throughout North America.
“We selected ScanSafe as our web security services for several reasons,” said Alex Yarmulnik, chief information officer at MidWest Airlines. “ScanSafe’s scalable SaaS platform requires no up-front or ongoing infrastructure investment and allowed rapid deployment and easy scalability. We really liked the fact that the product blocks spyware, viruses, and unwanted content in real-time before the page is displayed rather than relying on downloading updates.”
Business Fitness is the newest addition to ScanSafe’s growing channel, which already includes reputable partners like Vistorm, one of the largest and most influential resellers in the industry. ScanSafe recognizes the inherent value in the reseller channel, where clients and solution providers often have exceptional relationships. In order to further grow its channel, ScanSafe is now considering partnerships with the strongest regional and national VAR’s.
