Genesis Networks Partners with Proofpoint to Offer Local Email Security and Compliance Solutions in the Cloud

July 28, 2011

Genesis Networks Private Limited announced today its partnership with Proofpoint, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based email security and compliance solutions, to offer a complete range of email security, email archiving and data loss prevention solutions riding on Genesis' GenCloud Infrastructure (GCI) to protect against the rise in security breaches and help manage compliance requirements. Through the partnership with Proofpoint, Genesis Networks will be able to ensure the integrity of customers' inbound and outbound email, and protect against spam, phish attacks and malware.

"We are delighted to announce our Singapore partnership with Proofpoint. The addition of Proofpoint's email archiving, security and compliance solutions will help us deliver security and compliance solutions to meet the stringent needs of our commercial and government clients," said Jeremy Tay, director of data centre services for Genesis Networks. "Because the services are offered via the cloud, our customers benefit from an easily scalable solution with enterprise-grade functionality which, due to cost, may have been out of reach in the past."

Security continues to be a key priority for organisations, particularly with the rise in mobile working, as employees access email and company information from a number of fixed and mobile devices. The need to reduce the cost of ownership of network infrastructure, while enhancing security, is driving an accelerated move to cloud-based solutions like Genesis' GenCloud Infrastructure.

"We are excited about the partnership with Genesis Networks, which will see us expand our Singapore footprint and help organisations better manage security and compliance issues," said Dean Hickman-Smith, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Proofpoint. "By offering specialist solutions such as Proofpoint's, Genesis Networks can deliver added value by allowing customers' IT managers to focus on the strategic issues that will drive their business forward."
