St. Bernard Intros Product for SMBs
SAN DIEGO -- St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SBSW), a global provider of security and hosted office solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced the immediate availability of LivePrism, the only hosted email, instant message (IM) and Web filtering services designed specifically to address the needs of the SMB market. The offering also includes on-demand office solutions such as email hosting, shared calendars and secure archiving for mobile collaboration and message continuity.
Leveraging on-demand infrastructure, each LivePrism service is remotely managed and delivered over the Internet, removing the burden of costly hardware installations and sustaining IT management. Deployment is further simplified through automatic provisioning, giving SMBs access to the power of enterprise-class solutions, but with the flexibility to pick and choose services and scale as business requirements dictate.
LivePrism services use St. Bernard's Global Gateway to monitor traffic, isolating viruses, malware, spam and file sharing at the network perimeter, before exploits occur or bandwidth can be consumed. Residing 'in the cloud', LivePrism offerings are always on and can be accessed anywhere - centrally or remotely. Secure archiving provides additional assurance that data is preserved and can be easily retrieved to meet ever-changing compliance regulations.
"SMBs face a tough challenge in that they often do not have adequate time or resources to properly address network security, continuity and collaboration," said Vince Rossi, president and CEO at St. Bernard Software. "To make matters worse, smaller businesses often do not get their fair share of attention from traditional security vendors who inevitably put their resources behind enterprise customers. St. Bernard's LivePrism addresses this problem by offering SMBs cost-effective hosted offerings that can easily integrate into existing environments and meet their unique needs."
