CharTec, Reflexion Partner on Email Security as a Service
CharTec, the hardware as a service (HaaS) specialist, is partnering with Reflexion Networks, an email security and anti-spam specialist. The relationship gives CharTec partners special discounts and early access to Reflexion’s latest hosted security services. Here’s a bit more about the relationship.
Reflexion’s email security service includes Reflexion Total Control (RTC) for anti-spam and email security; Reflexion Archiving, eDiscovery and Recovery (RADAR) for email archiving; and RTC Encryption for compliance with state and federal privacy and data protection regulations, according to a prepared statement from both companies. CharTec and Reflexion call their combined solution the Total Control Compliance Suite. The solution is targeted at MSPs and solution providers.
Rumors about the CharTec-Reflexion relationship first popped up during the HTG Peer Groups conference two weeks ago in Dallas. According to a prepared statement from CharTec and Reflexion, the partnership benefits include:
- CharTec partners will receive direct access to Reflexion employees at CharTec Academies, early access to new hosted services, private labeling of the end-user interface to brand and promote managed services and free transition services from competitive solutions to Reflexion’s unified services delivery platform.
- Reflexion services are available at a deep discount to CharTec partners, and CharTec partners who resell Reflexion to their customers are entitled to free internal use of Reflexion Total Control in their own practice.
The CharTec-Reflexion relationship emerges as a key inflection point approaches in the managed services market. Many MSPs are testing Microsoft’s forthcoming Office 365 cloud applications, which includes Exchange Online. Some MSPs are watching to see how Microsoft safeguards Exchange Online for SMB customers. Meanwhile, a lengthy list of companies have introduced email security services for MSPs. Key competitors in the market include Exchange Defender, GFI Software, Roaring Penguin and Spam Soap.
