Infinitely Virtual, a California-based email hosting company, recently partnered with McAfee (News - Alert), a company that specializes in security space, for SaaS Total Protection, a comprehensive hosted solution that provides endpoint, email, Internet and network protection.
McAfee’s solution enables customers to receive immediate, up-to-the-minute threat protection to ensure that data, systems, and networks are instantly and consistently secure. Its SaaS (News - Alert) Total Protection service offers host-based and cloud-based Web filtering, which will help email hosting companies to protect against malicious and suspicious sites as well as stop malware and other Web-borne threats.
Cloud-based email filtering and continuity, which can stop email-borne attacks and spam before they reach the network, is also one of the many benefits of the SaaS Total Protection service. It also enforces email policies to prevent sensitive data loss.
"Data security is always a primary concern for our customers," said Nate Freeman, Infinitely Virtual partner and founder of Network People, Inc. in a press release. "Adding McAfee SaaS Total Protection to the already robust Infinitely Virtual security platform is the icing on the cake. We like the fact that Infinitely Virtual continues to raise the security bar for all of us in the cloud hosting field."
Adam Stern, founder and CEO, Infinitely Virtual added. "McAfee enables us to put endpoint protection on the server, giving us greater control over preventing viruses, spyware and hacker attacks," said Stern. "With McAfee, and our intrusion detection and prevention combining forces, we are offering companies the toughest security available to protect their data in the cloud."
