Open-Xchange Partners with SpamExperts for Secure E-Mail
NUREMBERG, Germany, and AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, October 26, 2010 – Open-Xchange, a provider of business-class open source collaboration software, and SpamExperts, the leading provider of e-mail security solutions for ISPs (Internet Service Providers) and web-hosting companies, announce an agreement to deliver integrated e-mail security to cloud providers that offer Open-Xchange groupware as a Service.
The fully-managed ISP solutions by SpamExperts can be installed directly on the servers of the service provider -- or run as a Hosted Cloud service on redundant SpamExperts servers in 10 highly-secure datacenters around the world. Updates, 24x7 monitoring, and regular maintenance ensure the highest filtering accuracy at all times. A quarantine system, full API, reporting and many more functions allow both full control of e-mail flows and easy integration into existing systems.
"With the combination of Open-Xchange and SpamExperts, SaaS providers can deliver greater value to their SMB customers, while differentiating themselves in the competitive market by offering professional, secure and affordable communication solutions," said Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. "By integrating the Open-Xchange and SpamExperts software, considerable cost-savings accrue that improve service providers' competitive position."
SpamExperts customers come from more than 100 countries and include some of the world's largest hosting companies, which offer OEM solutions under their own brand name. The first joint Open-Xchange and SpamExperts customers benefiting from the integration include LuxCloud (www.luxcloud.com), in Luxembourg, and NovaTrend (www.novatrend.ch), from Switzerland.
SpamExperts provides reliable and affordable professional e-mail security solutions to ISPs, web-hosting- and telecommunication companies as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises. With more than 1 million filtered domains, SpamExperts achieves industry-leading filtering accuracy.
"Accurate and cost-effective spam protection is essential for every e-mail server," said Sam Renkema, CEO of SpamExperts. "While organizations that run their e-mail server in-house should use SpamExpert software as a service, we offer ISPs the ability to have their own SaaS installation to further reduce cost and sell in high volumes to their end customers."
SpamExperts will show their solutions at the second Open-Xchange Partner Summit, which will take place on November 4 in Cologne, Germany. For the detailed agenda and free registration, visit www.open-xchange.com/partnersummit.
