BorderWare Security Platform and the BorderWare Security Network by announcing a partnership with LAN Systems, an established channel service centric organization with operations in Australia and New Zealand specializing in the distribution of leading technology solutions in the emerging field of converged networking, security and storage.
Commenting on the new partnership, Tony Heywood, Comstor Business Manager of LAN Systems, said: "LAN Systems believes that Email and VoIP security has been largely overlooked and that BorderWare has taken the high ground in this market. With the business environment in Australia and New Zealand becoming increasingly competitive, the need for a thought leadership approach in converged network security has never been more important. LAN Systems strategy is to provide an integrated approach to convergence and network security and BorderWare is an integral part of this integration with their VoIP solutions.
“LAN Systems is constantly looking for ways to assist their partner community to realize profitable ways of securing their customers. We expect BorderWare instantly adding significant value for our channel partners in order to match increasing customer demands”.
BorderWare Technologies is a security focused company with a proven track record of 13 years, constantly ahead of the competition with solutions addressing actual and future needs of customers. Latest examples are the BorderWare Security Platform addressing inbound threats and outbound content control and the BorderWare Security Network for next generation threat detection and response through first to market multi protocol IP reputation and behavioral analysis.
The BorderWare Security Platform is the first truly integrated content security platform designed to provide a single policy to protect both inbound and outbound traffic for all communications protocols. A cornerstone of this platform is the BorderWare Security Network (BSN), the first service to analyze the reputation and behavior of IP addresses across all communications protocols, including SMTP, HTTP, IM, FTP and VoIP. Driven by the convergence of threats encompassing all communications protocols, including email, instant messaging, web, and VoIP content, customers can no longer rely on conventional point products and reactive threat prevention services to secure their converging networks as well as ensuring corporate and regulatory compliance and meeting personal data privacy requirements.
“BorderWare has enjoyed huge success over the past six years in Australia and has won significant deals in the Firewall, Mail Firewall and most recently in the VoIP security field. Our partnership with Cisco, being part of the Cisco Technology Developer Program, will allow us to bring the business to the next level and scale it through LAN Systems’ channel of value-added resellers”, said Dean J. Bell, Director Asia Pacific of BorderWare. “We see LAN Systems as the perfect vehicle to build up on the existing mail firewall and anti-spam market while leveraging the existing user-base. LAN Systems’ expertise in the VoIP segment will drive the VoIP security business with BorderWare’s SIPassure, the world’s first and award-winning SIP based firewall.”

The company represents the world’s leading vendors in networking for the Internet, such as Cisco Systems and their expertise is to assess a network’s readiness for converged applications, including complex VoIP networks. LAN Systems looks at data security to be more than just firewalls, content filtering, anti-spam, VPNs - it is about strategic planning, implementation and how to effectively monitor and manage a network.
