SoftLayer, an IBM Company, today announced that SilverSky, a leading provider of cloud-based information security and messaging solutions, has chosen SoftLayer to help power its cloud-based email and Email Protection Suite offerings. SilverSky's comprehensive security services, running on SoftLayer's cloud platform and distributed through IBM's global sales channel, will enable businesses around the world to quickly move email workloads and critical information into the cloud in a secure and cost-effective way.

As a provider of cloud-based information security, secure messaging and collaboration services, SilverSky protects $525 billion in customer assets and handles more than 500 million security events each day. SilverSky's growing customer base includes 6,700 organizations around the globe in the financial services, retail, healthcare, energy, critical infrastructure and manufacturing sectors.

SilverSky chose SoftLayer to serve this dynamic set of customers from a more comprehensive infrastructure platform at a lower cost, with significant improvements in SilverSky's ability to scale and customize environments as its business needs grow. The SoftLayer platform empowers SilverSky with state-of-the-art disaster recovery services that ensure automated redundancy and immediate recovery times, providing unparalleled availability and reliability for customers, as well as SLAs of 99.999 percent. With data centers worldwide, SoftLayer gives SilverSky greater opportunity to increase its international presence and reach new markets. In addition, with support from IBM sales and distribution channels, SilverSky can also facilitate even more growth, enabling customers to purchase its services directly from IBM or through SilverSky and its other partners.

"As the lifeblood of business, email represents one of the most critical applications in the cloud today. Choosing SoftLayer enables us to speed adoption and growth of our security and messaging solutions by offering them a simple to use, cloud-based model," said Tim Harvey, CEO of SilverSky. "High availability and uptime is paramount to successful cloud email deployments -- and SoftLayer enables us to provide extensive geo-redundancy, instantaneous disaster recovery capabilities, more aggressive service level agreements and a number of Exchange enhancements to our customers."

A recent independent study commissioned by SilverSky revealed that security decision-makers want to move critical functions, such as email, to the cloud because they expect it will reduce expenditures (67 percent), simplify operations (66 percent) and increase the reliability of business functions (56 percent). However, strong security and privacy concerns continue to inhibit widespread cloud email adoption, far surpassing other barriers. Whether a high-tech start-up with high computational needs for generating content such as video, photos or a small medical clinic that needs to share health records -- companies are seeking out new low-touch and low-cost security offerings.
