Reflex Systems Announces Expansion in Federal Government Space

Federal Customers Account for 32% of Reflex's 2010 Revenue; Industry Veteran Hired to Meet Growing Demand for Virtualization and Cloud Management Solutions

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 24, 2011) - Reflex Systems, a pioneer in virtualization systems management solutions, today announced it is expanding its federal government initiative to meet growing demand for Reflex Virtualization Management Center (VMC).

"As government organizations move more applications and data to virtual and cloud environments, the need for an all-compassing, agile and secure way to manage their infrastructure has become critical," said Preston Futrell, President and CEO of Reflex Systems. "This is driving more federal customers, including civilian and DOD agencies, to Reflex solutions; in fact, federal agencies accounted for 32 percent of our 2010 sales revenue."

Strengthening Federal Market Presence
Reflex -- whose Reflex VMC, vTrust Security, vWatch Monitoring and vProfile Configuration products are listed on the GSA Schedule -- works with key federal market vendors, including MicroTech, Premier Systems, Convergence Technologies, and CSC. Reflex partnered with CSC to secure a large federal government agency contract in 2010, and CSC incorporated Reflex VMC and the Reflex VMC vTrust module into the CSC Trusted Cloud solution. vTrust security technology provides policy management and enforcement across virtual environments hosted locally and in private or public clouds.

"As virtualization becomes more entrenched in government agencies a greater emphasis is being placed on optimizing and securing the virtual infrastructures. Existing and new solutions require an increase in operational efficiency, scalability, automation and multi-tenant security. With its purpose-built virtualization management solution and in-depth knowledge of Federal security requirements, Reflex is an ideal partner for MicroTech's server, VDI, and cloud computing customers leveraging VMware-based solutions," said Jason Langone, Director of Virtualization & Storage Technologies, MicroTech.

Expanding Federal Team
"To help us capitalize on this growing interest from the federal government, we recently recruited John Sutton to run our federal government business," continued Futrell. "John's deep understanding of the federal market, coupled with expertise in virtualization and security solutions, and strong industry relationships will be invaluable to both Reflex and our customers."

"Government IT departments are turning to virtualization and cloud computing for flexibility and cost savings. But without a strong management solution, they're likely to squander these benefits," said John Sutton, Account Manager, Federal Government for Reflex. "I joined Reflex because no other solution enables such granular levels of visibility into, and holistic control over, complex virtual- and cloud-based infrastructures. I'm excited to help federal customers take advantage of Reflex VMC and realize the benefits of these promising technologies."

John brings more than 15 years of federal government sales experience to Reflex. He has sold millions of dollars of virtualization security solutions and IT services to myriad federal military and civilian agencies. He has been responsible for securing and managing relationships with strategic partners to drive higher levels of business, supporting key customer engagements, and directing GSA schedule initiatives. John earned a B.A. in political science and journalism from the University of Massachusetts.
