Kordia partners with Blue Coat Systems for cloud-based web security
Posted on 26-Jul-2012 11:30 | Tags Filed under: News



Kordia has partnered with Blue Coat Systems to launch a new cloud-based web security solution for businesses to meet the challenges of today’s changing application and media consumption patterns, and dynamic web-based threat landscape.

Blue Coat is a global leader in web security, currently serving over 15,000 customers worldwide – including 85 percent of Fortune Global 500 companies. The new solution utilises Kordia’s network to host a Blue Coat Cloud Service point of presence, which enables customers to leverage a ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) delivery model.

The Cloud Service utilises the Blue Coat WebPulse collaborative defense service, which delivers real-time analysis and ratings to categorise web content and protect over 75 million users worldwide from web-based malware and other malicious threats. The locally hosted point of presence enables the service to avoid delays typical with other overseas-hosted SaaS offerings.

Kordia General Manager Drew Gilpin says the partnership with Blue Coat is a continuation of the telecommunication company’s strategy to create solutions with market-leading vendors. “The pedigree and history of Blue Coat really says it all. They have a cutting-edge service which we are excited to be bringing to New Zealand businesses.”

“IT security is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today. Whether you’re a large corporate or an SME, with more employees bringing devices from home and accessing social media sites like Facebook at the workplace, it’s vital to have a robust IT security solution in place to protect your data,” says Gilpin.

Blue Coat Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Bruce Bennie, says Kordia proved to be the perfect partner to launch within the New Zealand market. “Kordia was an obvious fit for us because this is a mission critical security service, and Kordia customers already look to them for mission critical connectivity. This new offering from Kordia is ideal for New Zealand businesses that want enterprise-grade web security but don’t want to manage their own equipment,” says Bennie.
