Kordia and Blue Coat partner for cloud security

Locally hosted point of presence will avoid delays for customers, the companies say

Kordia and Blue Coat Systems have announced a cloud-based web security solution that uses Kordia's network to host Blue Coat Cloud service point of presence, enabling a Software-as-a-Service delivery model. The Cloud Service uses Blue Coat's WebPulse collaborative defense service and the two companies say having the point of presence locally hosted avoids delays that happen with overseas-hosted SaaS offerings. “The pedigree and history of Blue Coat really says it all. They have a cutting-edge service which we are excited to be bringing to New Zealand businesses," says Kordia's general manager Drew Gilpin. “IT security is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today. Whether you’re a large corporate or an SME, with more employees bringing devices from home and accessing social media sites like Facebook at the workplace, it’s vital to have a robust IT security solution in place to protect your data,” adds the GM. According to Blue Coat's MD for ANZ, Bruce Bennie, Kordia was "an obvious fit" for the company. “Kordia was an obvious fit for us because this is a mission critical security service, and Kordia customers already look to them for mission critical connectivity. This new offering from Kordia is ideal for New Zealand businesses that want enterprise-grade web security but don’t want to manage their own equipment," he says.
