As part of the agreement, SpikeSource will offer to its customers Clearswift’s content security products and services. The companies will also work to build integrated solutions that will allow businesses to capitalise on SpikeSource’s broad portfolio of Open Source solutions and platform, and Clearswift’s content filtering expertise.
Peter Croft, managing director at Clearswift Asia Pacific said the vendor has been promoting Web 2.0 security for several months.
“That made us very noticeable and there are also a lot of companies watching Spikesource at the moment and when their customers requested security,” he said.
He told CRN SpikeSource's SuiteTwo and Clearswift's MIMEsweeper will be able to use tested and certified Open Source applications that will meet their enterprise needs, safe in the knowledge that confidential data is not leaking out, and that inappropriate content such as harassment and abusive language is not being used.
“We also look forward to collaborating with SpikeSource on ways that we can integrate our complementary solutions on the SpikeSource platform to further help our customers,” said Croft.
The products will be sold and promoted by the Intel channel. Any partners of Clearswift that are also partners of Intel will be able to get their hands on the products, to create additional revenue streams for them, said Croft.
