Proofpoint, CAT Telecom and Raydant International Join Forces to Deploy New Enterprise Email Security Offerings in Thailand

CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Proofpoint, Inc., the leader in large-enterprise messaging security solutions, today announced that CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (CAT Telecom), one of the largest telecommunications providers in the Thai market, has partnered with Proofpoint to provide hosted email security services as part of its expanding services portfolio. CAT Telecom's MSP email security solutions are powered by the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway(TM) appliance and offer both inbound (anti-spam, anti-virus and zero-day threat protection) and outbound (data privacy, confidential information protection) security features.

CAT Telecom's Proofpoint-powered offerings are available to Thai enterprises immediately. Proofpoint channel partner Raydant International, based in Bangkok, provided pre-sales support during CAT Telecom's evaluation process and continues to provide design and technical support services as CAT Telecom deploys its new managed services offerings.

"We performed a detailed evaluation of many leading messaging security solutions, including Proofpoint, IronPort and Brightmail, but only Proofpoint offered the right combination of accuracy, scalability and ease-of-use that we required," said Dr. Anotai Srikitja, head of IT security business development for CAT Telecom. "Proofpoint's unique support for both inbound and outbound email security features will allow us to deliver advanced managed services to many thousands of users."

"Proofpoint allows managed service provider partners, such as CAT Telecom, to easily generate new revenue streams by providing a full complement of messaging security solutions on a single platform," said Gerry Tucker, director of Asia-Pacific sales for Proofpoint. "Proofpoint gives MSPs flexible deployment options, enabling companies to easily serve multiple customers using the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway appliance or Proofpoint Protection Server software."

Using the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway appliance, CAT Telecom offers a comprehensive array of anti-spam, anti-virus and data protection features as managed services. The company leverages a variety of Proofpoint's modular email defenses, including:

-- Proofpoint Spam Detection(TM), which offers complete protection against spam, adult content and phishing attacks. Proofpoint MLX(TM) machine learning technology delivers unrivalled accuracy with the lowest rate of false positives by examining more than 200,000 structural, content and reputational attributes in every email message. -- Proofpoint Virus Protection(TM), which defends against all types of email-borne viruses, worms and trojans, powered by the world's leading anti-virus engines. -- Proofpoint Zero-Hour Anti-Virus(TM), which protects against emerging "zero day" viruses in the earliest stages of their proliferation on the internet-hours before competing solutions even begin to react. -- Proofpoint Content Compliance(TM), which enables the easy definition and enforcement of acceptable use policies for message content and attachments across the entire enterprise. -- Proofpoint Digital Asset Security(TM), which keeps valuable intellectual property and confidential information from leaking outside the organization via email. -- Proofpoint Regulatory Compliance(TM), which protects private financial, healthcare and identity data, helping organizations comply with a wide variety of data protection and privacy regulations.
