Readers will remember a few weeks ago I was talking about the anti-spam solution from St. Bernard Software (previously Singlefin) and just how amazing I thought that their solution was in the marketplace and how they really met the need for SMB spam filtering.
Well life has been very interesting since then, I was invited to participate in a radio show along side the CEO of St.Bernard Software as a customer representative – you can hear it live on MyTechnologyLawyer.com or download it directly from the site here.
I really think that the radio show rocked and the PR Firm for St.Bernard an agency called Lewis Pr asked me if I would participate in a press release for the LivePrism product. I said that I would be happy to participate and on Friday there was a press release about how Skyriver has utilized the LivePrism product to protect our clients.
I have attached a copy of the release:
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 16, 2007–St. Bernard (OTCBB:SBSW), a global provider of security and hosted office solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced that Skyriver Communications has deployed LivePrism throughout its organization and to selected customers. St. Bernard’s on-demand services include hosted email, instant message (IM), Web filtering and hosted office solutions. LivePrism eliminates spam and ensures that Skyriver’s customers are compliant with federal and industry regulations.
Skyriver Communications is a Broadband Wireless Communications carrier, serving SMBs throughout Southern California. The company required an easy-to-use and cost-efficient service to reduce email spam and ensure that its customers in the financial-services industry meet necessary compliance regulations by archiving all electronic messages.
After testing solutions from multiple hardware- and software-based vendors, Skyriver selected LivePrism as the most reliable offering to manage configurable and scaleable email, Web and IM filtering. In January 2007 alone, LivePrism identified and stopped 75,542 spam emails from reaching users on the Skyriver network.
Designed to specifically meet the needs of SMBs and leveraging on-demand infrastructure, LivePrism services are remotely managed and delivered to Skyriver over the Internet, removing the burden of costly hardware installations and sustaining IT management. Skyriver and its customers now have access to the power of enterprise-class solutions, but with the flexibility to choose services and scale as business requirements dictate.
“Since our customers consider spam to be the most pressing IT issue, we needed a solution that provided exceptional functionality at a reasonable price,” said Brad Slavin, VP, network engineering and operations at Skyriver. “We chose St. Bernard’s LivePrism because it is scalable and requires minimal maintenance and support, while offering maximum security and reliability.”
According to The Radicati Group, Inc.’s study, ‘Email and Collaboration Corporate Survey, 2006-2007,’ fighting spam continued to be a top priority for businesses in 2006, despite the broad range of anti-spam products available today.(1)
“While SMBs don’t have the resources to purchase enterprise security solutions or employ a full-time IT administrator, they have a critical need to keep their data safe, email inboxes clean and electronic messaging archived,” said Vince Rossi, president and CEO at St. Bernard. “Skyriver can now concentrate on growing its business, while we keep its customers happy by reducing spam and archiving messages to meet regulatory compliance needs.”
