help AG partners with Proofpoint
SI to offer enterprise class email security through the cloud
help AG has announced a partnership agreement with Proofpoint Inc, a SaaS provider, to provide the vendor's cloud-based email security solutions to enterprises across the Middle East region.
In terms of the agreement, help AG will provide customers with a range of value-add services which include systems design and architecture based on enterprise business requirements, proof of concepts, implementation services, 24x7 local support services and quarterly health checks for the new solutions portfolio.
In addition, help AG has signed up as a Proofpoint Advantage Partner and is pursuing full technical and sales trainings and certifications.
"Cloud services promise to eliminate the hassles of the day to day management of IT thereby allowing IT departments to focus on functions that can enhance business efficiency and drive revenues. But for this to be a reality, enterprises must have both, the best cloud-based solutions coupled with qualified support that covers everything from systems implementation right to enforcement of SLAs. This ensures that customers reap all the benefits that the cloud offers and this is exactly what the partnership between Proofpoint and Help AG stands to represent," said Stephan Berner, managing director at Help AG.
Berner said: "We strongly believe that if we are to recommend a solution to our customers, we should have complete faith in it ourselves. In keeping with this, we deployed the Proofpoint solution in our own environment and are extremely happy with its performance."
Ciaran Rafferty, VP NEMEA at Proofpoint said: "We are impressed with help AG's commitment and strong technical expertise and are very excited about this partnership. We believe that our world class technology, coupled with Help AG's credentials as one of the region's leading security solutions providers, presents a strong value proposition to customers in the Middle East."
