Pressmeddelande   •   Maj 09, 2016 14:38 CEST

WeCloud AB, developers and providers of cloud-based IT-security solutions, is now launching their services worldwide in collaboration with Zscaler. Internet security firm Zscaler is a world leading cloud-based Internet security provider, and delivers security solutions to more than 10 million users worldwide. Through this cooperation, WeCloud cements its leading position in the Global IT Security market.

The collaboration was initiated in 2015 when WeCloud took on the challenge to deliver a global cloud service for e-mail security and e-mail archiving, which is integrated with Zscaler’s corresponding platform for Web security and Web filtering. Swedish WeCloud AB is in its seventh year of trading and has more than tripled its’ turnover since its inauguration. WeCloud have, unlike its Nordic competitors, opted to extend and broaden its portfolio, including the purchase of the Danish Email Security devlopment company Simitu a/s – and while much of the competition have been aquired by American corporations, WeCloud is still run by the original company founders, with the same corporate values from when they started out ; safety, simplicity and customer service. The fact that internationally renowned Zscaler opted to rely on WeCloud should be seen as a sign of WeCloud’s ever-stronger position in the industry.

For more than six years WeCloud has deployed Zscaler’s services to thousands of organizations across Northern Europe, and this long and successful relationship has resulted in mutual benefits for both companies as well as benefiting customers and partners. Enhancing this cooperation is a result of Zscaler’s decision to phase out its’ email security services to fully focus on web filtering/web security. To allow for this change of course, Zscaler needed to find a partner with the competence and stability requiredto meet the needs of the thousands of customers worldwide who had previously relied on the company's email security. They turned to WeCloud – their single largest distributor of email security – with the vision that they together could deliver both web filtering and web security/email security to existing and new customers all over the world.

WeCloud has successfully migrated its own customers from Zscaler’s email security to their own improved service, and anticipates migrating approximately 90% of the current Zscaler Email Security customers to it's own service with equal success. In addition, WeCloud’s and Zscaler’s web portals have been integrated and are now accessible with one single login. The collaboration between WeCloud and Zscaler has many positive effects, since both companies have the opportunity to take advantage of the other's technical solutions and expertise to design and deliver even better solutions in the future. WeCloud will continue to deliver email security to its’ Nordic customers from Nordic datacenters, whilst at the same time offering global customers an international cloud service with servers both within the EU and in the United States.

WeCloud develops and distributes cutting edge solutions for Web security, mobile security, antispam, antivirus and network monitoring in the cloud. WeCloud's global security platform gives our customers the highest possible security without investing in hardware or software. With our cloud-based security services, all user activities are protected in real time regardless of device, place and client platform.
