05/12/2011

M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, is accelerating its business expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, with Singapore set as its next priority market.

Online PR News – 12-May-2011 – – M86 Security has evolved since 1995 as a result of a merger and acquisitions of four leading network-security companies – Marshal, 8e6 Technologies, Avinti and Finjan. Today, the company offers industry-acclaimed Web and email security solutions using its patented Real-time Code Analysis™ and behavioural blended-threat detection technologies.

“With cybercrime costing companies worldwide more than US$100 billion per year, we are facing an epidemic on a truly global scale. As more sophisticated cyber threats constantly emerge, we have set our sights on the South East Asia region as our next strategic market,” said John Vigouroux, Chief Executive Officer of M86 Security. “Our move to establish M86 Security’s presence in Singapore, a regional hub to more than 7,000 multinational companies, has proven to be a decisive step to further our business expansion plans in the region. Jason Pearce, our Regional Director of South East Asia, is spearheading the company’s growth initiatives and I am very pleased to welcome Singapore Power, Aviva Asia Ltd and Central Provident Fund (CPF) to our M86 Security customer community, which now includes more than 25,000 companies and 26 million users worldwide.”

M86 Security’s hardware, virtual appliances, software and cloud services solutions enhance customer value by protecting networks against new and advanced threats, securing confidential information, and ensuring regulatory compliance. Its Real-time Code Analysis™ and behavioural malware-detection technologies are leading the industry in defending against the increasingly complex Internet threat landscape.

M86 Security won the 2011 Frost & Sullivan Product Line Strategy of the Year Award for Content Filtering – benchmarking the company’s performance against key competitors in critical areas including breadth of product line, size of addressable customer base, impact on customer value, impact on market share, and breadth of applications/markets served.

Frost & Sullivan's Research Analyst, Martha Vazquez, notes that "M86 Security understands the increasing challenges created by the dramatic rise in phishing websites that cause the spread of malware. With the double punch of Web and email threats causing malicious system attacks, more and more businesses are aggressively seeking best-practice solutions, such as what M86 Security offers, by which to protect their networks."

M86 Security is also positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2010 Magic Quadrant Reports for Secure Web Gateway and Secure Email Gateway.

Furthermore, M86 Security has garnered 13 awards and accolades in 2011 from prestigious industry publications, including Secure Computing Magazine – the leading journal read by IT security professionals in the US, Europe and Australia – Network Computing (UK), IT Pro (UK) and Computer Reseller News (US).

Finally, the M86 Secure Web Gateway (SWG) recently gained the esteemed CESG Claims Test Mark (CCTM) accreditation after independent testing by the UK Government’s National Technical Authority for Information Assurance. CCTM certification provides an often necessary government quality assurance for organisations in the public and private sectors seeking information-security products to protect their networks and data whilst aiding compliance.
