-- New CYREN distribution partner VCW Security scores its first Security as a Service deal
MCLEAN, Virginia, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN), a global provider of cloud-based security solutions, today announced that The New Saints Football Club (TNS), a member of the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), is one of the first UK organizations to adopt the cloud-based CYREN WebSecurity solution.
The football club chose CYREN WebSecurity through VCW Security, a leading UK distributor of IT security solutions and new CYREN partner. VCW Security announced its partnership with CYREN just last month – and already finds itself securing online traffic for a leading football club's players, coaches and administrators.
Less than 60 days since their distribution partnership began, VCW Security and CYREN see fast-growing interest among organizations currently exposed to potentially crippling internet security risks. Delivering the low cost and high utility of cloud-based applications, CYREN WebSecurity is ideally suited to address explosive growth in the Security as a Service (SecaaS) markets that are driven by an increasingly mobile workforce, BYOD trends, and low cost, high utility cloud-based applications and storage.
"CYREN WebSecurity will serve as a key component of our football club's comprehensive e-security efforts," said Ian Williams, COO at TNS. "By deploying CYREN's cloud-based service, we will ensure safe web access for our entire organization, including coaches, staff and players. The ability to protect our users on a wide variety of devices was one of the key top reasons for our choice."
"The short time that it took to sign our first end-user deal is a reflection of VCW's security expertise as well as the unmatched protection that CYREN WebSecurity offers as a full-featured, comprehensive SecaaS solution," said Simon Jackson, commercial director at VCW Security. "We are particularly pleased that our first install will help guard a football club against ever-growing internet threats."
"CYREN WebSecurity continues to spark interest among distributors and resellers who serve their local organizations on a daily basis and see firsthand the many benefits of a SecaaS solution, including enhanced next generation internet protection and unmatched convenience," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "VCW Security's upcoming deployment of CYREN WebSecurity at a well-known UK football club just further underscores the level of innovation and simplicity that we are pleased to jointly offer."
