BCTI Selected to Become an Elite IronPort Systems Channel Partner

BCTI has joined the IronPort Channel Partner Program. BCTI is now able to deploy IronPort’s powerful anti-spam, anti-virus, and anti-spyware appliances to its customers.

Johnson City, TN, August 14, 2008 --(PR.com)-- BCTI announced today that it has joined the IronPort Channel Partner Program. BCTI chose to become an IronPort Silver Partner because of the powerful security protection it offers clients. As an IronPort partner, BCTI is now able to deploy IronPort’s powerful anti-spam, anti-virus, and anti-spyware appliances to its customers. The IronPort C-Series email security and the IronPort S-Series Web security appliances secure all inbound and outbound email and Web traffic at the network perimeter, providing complete protection from email and Web-based malware.

“We are pleased to add IronPort products to our portfolio of innovative technologies,” said President and CEO, Chase Boles. “Becoming an IronPort Silver Partner is part of our overall strategy to offer the best security solutions available to our clients. IronPort is a very scalable product which can be utilized by smaller companies with 100 users to larger companies with thousands of employees.” said President and CEO, Chase Boles.

Sr. Engineer Brandon Cox installed IronPort Email Security Appliance at BCTI six months ago. “Since then, we have seen a dramatic decrease in the amount of spam our employees receive. Based upon our knowledge and experience, this product is the best solution for email threat management,” said Cox.

BCTI Engineer Steve Turner recently returned from IronPort training in Nashville, TN. The training he received reinforced his confidence in IronPort’s products. “We can customize IronPort to meet each company’s individual needs. For example, we can choose settings to block unwanted content and to enforce various regulatory and business policies,” he said.

Turner explained that IronPort designed its own proprietary operating system tuned for enhanced disk IO performance. “Their secret is the reputation filtering service that pools information from all of their customers, including 8 of the 10 largest ISPs and corporations in the world, running IronPort appliances to maintain a ‘reputation’ list which stops up to 95% of unwanted email based solely on the source address…without any other filtering.”

As an IronPort Silver Partner and a Cisco Certified Premier Partner, BCTI provides the best solutions available. “Having IronPort and Cisco as partners is a win-win for BCTI and our clients,” said Chase Boles.
