SAAS Security for hosted desktop provider

Webroot Software : 08 September, 2009  (Application Story)
Nasstar is embedding e-mail and web-based Software-as-a-Service security from Webroot into the company's hosted desktop offering providing a completely cloud based service
Webroot, a cloud security provider for consumer and business, has announced a strategic partnership with Nasstar which provides hosted exchange and its pioneering Hosted Desktop cloud service to small, medium and large organisations.

Webroot will enhance the Hosted Desktop and Hosted Exchange services offered by Nasstar, by providing Webroot Web Security SaaS and Webroot Email Security SaaS which includes Webroot Email Encryption Service.

According to Gartner, the hosted desktop market is anticipated to grow from '$1.5 billion in 2009 to $65.7 billion in 2013', and it is forecast that almost 40% of all desktops delivered virtually within the same period. Nasstar's choice of security partner is a business critical relationship for the company as it seeks to establish itself as a volume operator over the next 3 years.

Charles Black, Founder and Chief Executive, Nasstar, said, "Webroot has emerged as a leading global provider of email and web-based SaaS security solutions which will further enhance Nasstar's Hosted Desktop and Hosted Exchange services. Webroot's range of quality solutions, and its unprecedented pedigree within the SaaS Security area, enables us to continue to deliver a world-class cloud-based service to our clients. We look forward to working with Webroot as we continue to redefine desktop computing."

Nasstar makes computing a simple Internet subscription service, enabling subscribers of its Hosted Desktop service to do all of their computing in the Internet cloud rather than on a local computer. Nasstar's Hosted Desktop provides subscribers with access to their desktop, files, applications and email over the Internet providing an alternative to traditional on-premise computing.

Ian Moyse, EMEA Channel Director at Webroot, said, "We are delighted that Nasstar has chosen to partner with Webroot. In our experience, we have found that our full range of email and web-based SaaS security services, our advanced technical support and the commercial benefits of working with a global vendor such as Webroot, are of paramount importance to our partners' establishment of a strong foothold in the SaaS market."
