MessageLabs Releases Security Services Intended For SMBs
MessageLabs range managed security solutions provide a cost-efficient technique for smaller businesses to achieve the level of protection they require.
For small organizations, MessageLabs recently released its 'Small Business Solutions', a combination of Web and e-mail security services. MessageLabs has developed 'Small Business Solutions' to address security challenges that SMBs encounter such as the growing sophistication and number of threats, limited IT resources and constrained budget, and deficiency in in-depth security expertise.
Today, electronic threats concerning small businesses are rapidly taking new forms. MessageLabs 'managed solutions' have been designed to provide small businesses protection from e-mail, web, and other kinds of converging threats. Such threats could be, for instance, e-mail threats turned into web threats by embedding malicious links to download spyware, adware and other malware.
The company assures cent percent-integrated protection for small businesses' vital avenues of communication. This would mean reduction of costs and overhead maintenance. The solutions have a range of affordable prices depending on the number of employees in the enterprise. They provide excellent value, customized to the size of the business. Moreover, all the services emanate from a single provider and therefore, getting support is quite easy.
The services are available in three packages. The 'Web Security' guards companies from threats, those enter the company networks through the Web. They could be viruses, spyware, phishing, trojans and similar malware. MessageLabs' 'URL filtering mail security' protects firms from spam, phishing, trojans and other malware that floats with the e-mail traffic.
'E-mail and Web Security' is a collection of two packages for ultimate protection, says company officials.
Since MessageLabs fully manages the services, its customers can reduce their companies' IT resources, including staff, hardware and software, while improving security. Officials say the services are based on MessageLabs' 'Skeptic technology' that gathers knowledge about Web threats and applies it to its e-mail filtering.
MessageLabs has observed that smaller businesses are becoming increasing targets of security threats; hence their protection is particularly important. As per the company's threat report of November 2006, businesses holding less than 250 employees receive twice as much spam as medium-sized enterprises and 30% more than bigger enterprises.
