Derby, United Kingdom, 2010/06/07 - Internet and PC security specialist Prevx has today announced a partnership with Oasis, a leading South African distributor, which will see the entire Prevx security portfolio reach a host of businesses across the country.
Oasis, which distributes technology products to resellers, will begin offering a range of business and enterprise solutions based on the award-winning Prevx 3.0, the first solution capable of combining faster scanning, a super-light footprint and full interoperability with other anti-malware products. In addition to offering a greater choice of security solutions, resellers can drive incremental revenue on top of every sale of traditional antivirus (AV) products. This is because Prevx’s suite of anti-malware solutions can be layered on top of existing security products to boost a customer’s malware defenses.
“Despite significant efforts on the part of governments, law enforcement, and the security industry as a whole, cyber crime continues to grow in sophistication and intensity,” said Johann Ollewagen, MD of Oasis. “Prevx came to us with a unique approach to address this problem, which basically allows users to strengthen their security defenses by layering one solution on top of another. This is fantastic news for our reseller partners because, for the first time ever, they can drive additional margin from their AV portfolio. More importantly, they can demonstrate to customers that it is possible to take an innovative approach with their cyber security strategies.”
With Prevx 3.0, Oasis and its channel partners can also offer businesses the ability to deploy full AV protection quickly and centrally manage the software. Those businesses will then have the ability to scan and protect the large number of PCs they have on their network. Any infected machines picked up in the scan, which takes less than two minutes, will be identified and flagged for clean-up. With Prevx 3.0 Enterprise and Business solutions, Oasis partners will be able to give customers the ability to black- or whitelist software on individual PCs or throughout the enterprise. Prevx (prevx.com) also provides SMS and email alerts to raise the alarm for new and escalating infections as soon as they are seen within the business.
Mel Morris, CEO at Prevx, commented: “There is no longer any debate. Antivirus and related security technology cannot be relied upon to protect against more than 70% of current threats. Systems must therefore be resilient to cyber attack. When endpoint protection is breached it is unlikely to raise an alarm signaling its failure to protect. Hence conducting regular scans with an alternative security product will pinpoint infections that might otherwise go unnoticed by existing AV for long periods of time. Moreover, the use of secondary endpoint protection technologies can bolster primary defenses. This kind of interoperability is absolutely key in beating modern cyber crime, which is why we look forward to working with Oasis to help educate the South African channel and boost customers’ cyber security defenses in the region.”
