The cloud-based Secure Web Gateway as a Service market represents an opportunity to serve businesses 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 (SecSaaS) markets that are fueled by BYOD trends, an increasingly mobile workforce, and the management and accessibility of information assets beyond the boundaries of traditionally secured network perimeters.

CYREN WebSecurity is built for this new way of working, enabling CYREN partners to quickly capture the fast-growing market opportunity by offering a total solution for roaming users, smartphones and tablets, including BYOD. It leverages the company's GlobalView™ Cloud infrastructure, its patented Recurrent Pattern Detection™ technology, and the most robust transaction base in the industry to deliver a unique cloud-based Secure Web Gateway service. Easy to set up and manage, it provides an intuitive customer experience that delivers on the SaaS promise of doing more for less.

"We are excited to see the emergence of state-of-the-art cloud based protection for mobile and roaming users," said Tom O'Brien, CEO of MXSweep, a leading European provider of cloud-based security services and CYREN design partner. "CYREN WebSecurity will help MXSweep deliver the easy to consume and best of breed cloud based security that our customers expect."

"Arming partners with the ability to rapidly deploy new security services throughout any ecosystem, CYREN WebSecurity opens up significant new revenue streams," said Brett Wilson, vice president of products at CYREN. "CYREN WebSecurity provides our partners with the speed, accuracy and real-time insight that their end customers demand without the unnecessary burdens of additional capital expense and expert human resources. We see CYREN's robust cloud infrastructure as a true catalyst for growth – and today's launch of CYREN Web Security is the latest step in harnessing its full capabilities."
