Web security as a service from Viatel.

ScanSafe : 14 January, 2008  (Application Story)
Viatel to deliver Scansafe internet security products across Europe as a service offering as part of its managed communications service.
ScanSafe is making its full suite of Web security services available through Viatel, a provider of business communications services to more than 7,000 companies across Europe. The addition of Web security services complements Viatel's email and firewall managed offerings and means that it can now offer a full range of managed security services. The company's customers can now purchase ScanSafe's Web Filtering, Web Malware Scanning and IM Control services.

'Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions are a perfect fit for forward thinking ISPs like Viatel," said Eldar Tuvey, CEO, ScanSafe. "Businesses of all sizes are looking to their bandwidth providers to protect them from Web and IM-based threats including viruses, spyware, Trojans, keyloggers and rootkits. With ScanSafe's 'in the cloud' service, Viatel has been able to quickly and easily provide its customers with a complete managed security service from one trusted source. We rely on our partners to deliver our award winning services and in Viatel, we have teamed up with a like-minded partner with a tremendous market reputation and capability.'

Viatel offers its customers a range of managed voice and data communications including: business broadband, Voice over IP, IP VPN, Ethernet services, managed hosting and co-location. The company has been building its portfolio of security services in response to increasing customer demand to buy bundled services and clean bandwidth.

"Web security is an important addition to our range of communications services," said Arjan van Proosdij, hosting product manager at Viatel. "Our customers want their bandwidth to be cleaned at source without having to worry about the risk to business reputation or operations that can result from Web security breaches. While many of our clients do not have the in house resources to monitor Web malware, others don't want the time and cost of managing another vendor relationship. They certainly don't want to have another product to install or manage, which is why offering security as a service is critical."

As fully managed services powered by ScanSafe, the new services from Viatel require no hardware, maintenance or upfront capital costs and deliver real-time scanning of Web and IM traffic. As a result, the services increase productivity, reduce bandwidth consumption and offer a lower total cost of ownership than hardware or software solutions. In addition, by removing the burden of maintenance, the solutions free internal IT resources, allowing them to focus on projects directly related to an organization's core competency.

Web and IM threats are a significant pain point for businesses worldwide. According to Gartner, Inc., "The Internet and Internet applications will be the primary sources of malware infections in the enterprise in 2008 and beyond (0.8 probability)."
