Security firm Trend Micro teams up with Sago Networks to provide businesses with an expanded range of security solutions.Security software provider Trend Micro and IT service and solution provider Sago Networks announced a partnership to provide Sago Networks and its customers a range of Trend Micro Enterprise Security products and managed service offerings.
Sago chose three of Trend Micro's Enterprise Security solutions, including OfficeScan Client/Server Edition for PC and file server protection, ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange for corporate e-mail server protection and InterScan Messaging Hosted Security for anti-spam and e-mail protection. Sago has also licensed the rights to resell the complete Trend Micro solution portfolio, including home and home office solutions, small and medium business (SMB) solutions, and enterprise solutions. Trend Micro's Enterprise Security solution is an integrated offering of content security products, services and solutions powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network. The company's Enterprise Security solutions rely on cloud-client architecture to help businesses protect their network from malicious threats. To shorten the time to protection and reduce the complexity of on-site solutions, Trend Micro clients can query Web, e-mail and file reputation databases that are correlated in the cloud. "Trend Micro not only offers the right products at the right price points, but has enabled us to tailor product structures and bundled solutions that suit our reseller business model," said Cox. "As a partner, they give us the same flexibility for managed services that our customers have come to expect from us in the telecommunications business. Today, we can offer flexible licensing models that let our customers 'true up' and 'true down' on a quarterly basis. Trend Micro solutions fit our service pricing models and help keep our operating costs under control with solutions that enable very efficient, centralized management and administration."
