Avira has launched Secure Email, a new anti-spam and antivirus cloud service designed for web-hosting companies. Avira Secure Email quietly went to market this week at the World Hosting Conference in Rust, Germany.
The launch venue was by design. The WHC is one of the biggest events anywhere for the hosting and cloud industry – and certainly the biggest for the German speaking regions of Europe. Last year’s event was attended by 6,300 visitors from 83 countries.
The goal of the Avira team was to simply to walk potential clients through the new product.
“We’ve talked with numerous international customers which were interested in what we are doing and they gave us a lot of positive feedback,” said Nina Heiler, business development manager at Avira. “They like the German brand, they feel secure with our product, and they liked the clear and simple design of the web interface.”
While Avira Secure Email is a new product, it is not a new reach into a new specialization. “The experience we’ve gained in spam detection combined with our award-winning anti-malware software makes our new solution stand out from the competition – and also makes it attractive for hosting providers,” explained Wilfred Schoonderbeek, head of the Secure Email development project. “This is an extension of our core business strengths. Our goal at WHC was to let the right people know about it.”
With AVIRA Secure Email, all incoming traffic is scanned on the Avira cloud platform: Questionable emails are blocked or quarantined, while safe communications are automatically delivered to the mail server. Avira Secure Email provides the following benefits:
- Best-in-Cloud threat analysis and detection – The Avira Protection Cloud (used throughout the Avira product lineup) is the basis for the award-winning malware detection.
- Plug-and-play capability – The Secure Email API can be easily integrated with the existing control panels of web-hosting providers.
- Competitive model – The no-hardware, one-domain structure provides an easy way for web hosting companies to add high-level email protection.
Avira Secure Email is available directly from Avira and through selected partners.
