Sydney/Australia, Nottingham/UK (PRWEB) June 27, 2006
TrustDefender and Esendex Limited announced today that the two companies have formed a strategic Partnership in a step to drastically increase Security and restore Trust and Confidence for Online Transactions.
TrustDefender will integrate the Esendex Business SMS Service into the TrustDefender Enterprise Server to provide its customers with the ability to use out-of-band Authorization via Email and SMS on a world-wide scale. TrustDefender will immediately benefit from Esendex’s proven levels of service and security and its global reach as a leading provider of Business SMS services.
Esendex Limited carefully analyzed their security needs and selected TrustDefender to safeguard its growing numbers of online business users from all sorts of malicious online threats like Phishing, Pharming, Spyware or malicious code that can compromise the security to steal Identities or to commit Online Fraud.
“We will be part of the TrustDefender GAP Program to protect the Users who submit confidential information like credit card details to our internet payment gateway. The goal is to provide the customers with the confidence they need to do their business online with the Guaranteed Authentication and the Secure Lockdown Features of TrustDefender. On the other hand we are also now using the TrustDefender Solution to even more tightly secure the Backend Webservice Connection. More and more of our customers are using our powerful Webservice-API to communicate with our leading Business SMS Engine. TrustDefender’s Safe and Secure Mode will make sure that these Backend Servers are not compromised and the Connection is safe before they perform the Transaction,” says Julian Hucker, Managing Director of Esendex Limited.
Ever increasingly we see Online Businesses around the world faced with a tidal wave of Phishing or other Online Fraud attacks, and constantly having to update their own security measures and still rely on external parties to rectify or prevent such attacks. In addition to this, businesses today still rely on the help of ISP’s and Internet Registrars to shut down fraudulent Websites. Even Internet Banks and Online Payment Gateways – from whom everybody expects the highest standards of Security – continue relying upon incomplete and inefficient Standards. However the rise of Trojans, Malware and other forms of Crimeware in 2005/2006 has proven one thing: Once a PC is compromised, all Security Measures on the Online Business End are rendered useless – be it an Internet Bank, an Online Shop or your Tax Office. With TrustDefender, Online Businesses can integrate the Home User’s PC into the overall Security Chain and safeguard or lock down the Online Business Session.
“We are pleased that Esendex selected TrustDefender because this truly is a win-win situation. All Esendex Customers – be it a Home User, a Small Business or a large Enterprise can benefit from the added security that TrustDefender provides. With its GAP Protection, the Secure Lockdown, the Safe & Secure Mode, the Two Factor Authentication and the TrustedSurfing Database, TrustDefender is the only available solution that provides a holistic solution rather than ineffective countermeasures,” said Ted Egan, Founder and Director of TrustDefender.
