iSheriff: “Cloud-Based Office 365 Amplifies the need for Flexible Workplace Security”


Orange, California, USA (October 19, 2010) – Internet cloud-security vendor iSheriff says Microsoft’s announcement this week of the new Office 365 cloud-based service highlights the rapidly growing need for flexible Internet security solutions which can secure Web data anywhere and on any device.

“Web 2.0 and the availability of affordable, high-speed mobile bandwidth are some of the factors driving a revolution in the way people work,” said iSheriff CEO, Oscar Marquez.

“Microsoft’s drive into the cloud-computing market reinforces the overall business trend towards outsourcing and managed services. Businesses are increasingly looking for ways to gain competitive advantages and efficiency. Cloud-computing offers them that – keeping business overheads down, achieving more with less, and enabling the business to focus on its self” explained Marquez.

“In today’s online working environment, employees are eager to work remotely, from home or on the road. They are embracing technologies such as the iPhone and Wi-Fi as a means to communicate with contacts from anywhere and remain connected as much as possible. Employers are also looking to help facilitate work-life balance with flexible working policies that encourage employees to take opportunities to work from home. It’s good for the business, it’s good for the employee and it’s good for the environment,” continued Marquez.

“However, large numbers of remote and mobile workers accessing business data and applications over Wi-Fi from outside the office is a security model that few businesses have had to contend with. This is one of the key reasons we are seeing small and large businesses alike turning to cloud-based security services like iSheriff,”

iSheriff services enable organizations to provide Web and email filtering for workstations, laptops and mobile devices connecting from any location in the world. The client’s security and compliance policies are constantly applied to email or Web use, regardless of what device the user is accessing the Web with or where they are located.

“Technologies such as URL filtering, anti-spam and malware protection are essential for basic Web security. With services like Office 365 facilitating the online transfer of business confidential data; security which can identify and protect critical data in real-time in the cloud is more important than ever. Cloud-based security is the best model for today’s borderless enterprise,” commented Marquez.
