M86's Secure Web Service Hybrid Recognized for Efforts, Accomplishments in Cloud Computing Space

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - M86 Security, a global provider of Web and messaging security products, today announced it has been named by CRN in the magazine's 100 coolest cloud computing list within the top cloud security product category for the new M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid offering. The Top 100 Cloud Computing products include 20 storage vendors, 20 security vendors, 20 productivity vendors, 20 infrastructure vendors and 20 platform vendors.

CRN compiled the list based on nominations from solution providers and industry executives rating the channel leadership and effectiveness of a company along with its business and sales impact. The final selections were made by a panel of Everything Channel editors taking into account channel investment and resources, top executive channel advocacy and performance in Everything Channel research projects.

"M86 Security was selected as one of the top 20 Coolest Cloud Security Product providers because it provides channel partners with a very compelling opportunity to grow their businesses by offering customers a competitive cloud-based Web security solution that allows organizations to protect and control roaming users' Web access," says Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel.

The M86 Secure Web Service Hybrid is the first in a series of Hybrid and Pure SaaS solutions from M86 scheduled for introduction in 2010. The award-winning new Hybrid offering from M86 leverages the capabilities of the M86 Secure Web Gateway for unified policy management, active real-time content inspection and real-time code analysis for malware detection to provide mobile and branch office users with the same sophisticated Web security already provided for corporate networks users. The Secure Web Service Hybrid incorporates load balanced scanners and authentication services running in Amazon Web Service instances with new laptop and desktop client technology. The resulting solution allows existing and new M86 Secure Web Gateway customers to utilize unified malware detection/prevention, policy management, security reporting, and security event logging services for the full set of enterprise use cases, including within the corporate network perimeter, outside the corporate network on any ISP network (mobile users), and small branch offices. The cloud-based scanning and authentication service elements are currently available from AWS facilities in North America and Europe, with additional services in Asia Pacific scheduled to come online throughout 2010.

"M86 continues to deliver the most advanced Web and email security products specifically designed to protect against current and future Internet threats," said William Kilmer, Chief Marketing Officer, M86 Security. "We constantly work at adapting our technology to our users' needs and providing our channel partners with the best products and services for their customers.
