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.
