ScanSafe has announced that Orange Business Services is to offer its web and email security technology to its customers.

As an SaaS solution powered by ScanSafe, the new offerings from Orange require no hardware, upfront capital costs or maintenance and provide real-time threat protection with zero latency. As a result, according to Orange, the services increase productivity, reduce bandwidth consumption and offer a lower total cost of ownership than traditional hardware or software solutions.

Eldar Tuvey, CEO at ScanSafe, said: “We are delighted to work with such a well regarded and forward thinking business as Orange. The channel has always been a strong component of our business and this new distribution agreement will accelerate our continued growth into the enterprise space. Security is an increasingly critical issue and delivering web security as an SaaS service ensures that Orange customers are protected from the growing number of web threats at an affordable and predictable cost.”

Gérard Garnier, VP IT services at Orange Business Services, said: “We chose ScanSafe's technology as we want to offer the best possible web security to our customers in order to ensure their business, network and employees are protected from the increasingly hostile threat landscape.”
