<p>Sydney 4 December 2008 – Now part of Axway, Tumbleweed® Communications Corp., an industry leader in managed file transfer and content security, today emphasised Australia’s borderless corporate networks will have a greater focus on secure content management throughout 2009. The small to medium business, larger corporate and government sectors are expected to continue to move away from traditional anti-spam solutions and instead incorporate proactive data leak prevention strategies within the one device into their business systems.</p>
<p>With its enhanced sales channel presence in the Australian marketplace, Tumbleweed confirmed that it will continue to meet the evolving e-mail security demands of the enterprise with its MailGate solution.</p>
<p>“Data leakage prevention will continue to be a major topic of discussion as we operate in a more highly regulated and compliant environment,” outlined Mr Stree Naidu, Tumbleweed’s Regional Vice President Asia Pacific and Japan. “We envision organisations to anticipate data breaches and proactively prepare for both inbound and outbound protection for the email gateway,” Naidu continued.</p>
<p>According to Frost &amp; Sullivan’s Secure Content Management Report September 2008 the APAC email filtering market grew by a robust 27.5 per cent in 2007 on a year-on-year basis, as APAC enterprises moved towards securing their email gateways. In particular, matured IT markets such as Australia and Hong Kong recorded healthy growth rates in the past year, expanding by 20.1 per cent and 43.8 per cent during the time duration respectively.</p>
<p>“Tumbleweed has enhanced its position in Australia over the past year with some key client implementations and is the current market leader for email filtering solutions in Hong Kong,” said Naidu. “We have paid particular attention to expanding and better equipping our channel partner presence throughout APAC and the benefits are now paying off.”</p>
<p>“We believe that security threats for 2009 will manifest themselves within increasing cyber attacks upon individuals; a rising use of botnets across both the PC and mobile devices and of course data leakage prevention. Now threats from within pose an equally, if not more dangerous situation, as compared to traditional incoming threats,’ he outlined.</p>
<p>The MailGate suite from Tumbleweed is an enterprise-wide email security solution built on a high-performance, highly secure Linux platform that installs in minutes and can process close to two million messages an hour.</p>
<p>Flexible and easy to manage, MailGate provides intelligent network-edge defenses, antispam, antivirus, zero-hour virus outbreak protection, accidental data leakage protection through content filtering, policy management, gateway-to-gateway encryption, automated reporting, and a state-of-the-art, centralized management console.</p>
<p>Tumbleweed has implemented its MailGate email solution across a range of borderless corporate enterprises including RSM International in Australia and Li &amp; fun Limited, LTK Cable, BALtrans, Ocean Park and K Line within Hong Kong.</p>
