Sydney Australia (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
TrustDefender is pleased to announce that, due to demand, they have extended their international reseller/integration partnerships, with agreements now formed with numerous companies around the globe for the distribution of 'TrustDefender Security Solutions'.
"There are major issues arising from the growing incidence of online crime within the Banking and Financial Services industry globally. As a result, we are increasingly seeing the need for security applications that go beyond existing two factor authentication solutions such as the tokens, virtual keyboard, SMS or the out-of-band security solutions and a need to provide a much more user-friendly reliable level of security and protection for their customers," commented Ted Egan, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of TrustDefender.
"We are frequently being contacted by senior executives, including Risk Managers, CIOs and CISOs who are eager to learn how they can further reduce the incidence of online criminal activity and give their customers an extra level of protection at the PC or mobile computing device end of business," he added.
Since launching the TrustDefender Enterprise Server offering in November 2006, TrustDefender has commenced work on a number of projects with international organisations in the Banking and Government sectors. This has in turn led to the establishment of preferred business partnerships in the Middle East, Asia and the United States.
The newest partners to join the TrustDefender distribution network are PT Murni Solusindo Nusantara from Indonesia, Paramount Computer Services & Rueya - both from the UAE - and Australian company ICE Systems.
Paramount Computer Systems (PCS), based in Dubai, provides services to a wide range of organisations in the Government, Banking and the Oil industries across most Middle Eastern countries, as well as Pakistan and India. PCS is the leading regional provider of the products and services used for securing enterprises' information assets.
Rueya, also based in Dubai, is a growing information technology services company that delivers planning, project management and integration services to the Financial Services, Banking, Government and Oil industries across the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar.
Indonesia's leading Banking solutions company, PT. Murni supplies services the Banking, Government, Oil and Gas industries throughout Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia and has partnered with TrustDefender to introduce and implement the TrustDefender Security Solutions to these markets in their region.
Christian Liadinata, President of PT Murni commented, "TrustDefender is a next generation online security solution that goes beyond the current token security solutions used to secure customer transactions by Indonesia's leading Banks. PT Murni is pleased to partner with TrustDefender to introduce and implement world class online security solutions that ensures Indonesian Banks remain ahead when protecting their customers from Online Criminals".
ICE Systems, based in Sydney Australia, supplies services to the Banking, Government and SME markets throughout Australia and Singapore. A specialist systems integrator, the company specialises in the design, procurement and deployment of systems and solutions for corporate Australia and will utilise the TrustDefender Security Solutions to extend the value offering they provide to their clients.
Richard Metcalfe General Manager for ICE Systems commented "At ICE Systems we continually focus on providing integrated best of breed solutions and services to our customers and our partnership with TrustDefender will certainly contribute to that. With the sophistication, volume and awareness of fraudulent attacks on the rise we were seeing a reduction in consumer confidence in relation to using online solutions provided by businesses.
"TrustDefender provides assurances and education to the consumer, as well as visibility of known and unknown threats to the business so that it can then take the necessary steps regarding any e-transaction. TrustDefender is a very powerful solution for any business that wants to increase not only the security of their e-transactions but consumer confidence in their brand as well," he added.
The establishment of partnerships with these international companies puts TrustDefender on an aggressive growth path to further reduce the impact of online fraudulent activity around the globe.
"With awareness of TrustDefender growing among Banks, Governments and Corporations globally we are also seeing our international partnerships grow based on referral from these businesses. These selected partnerships now allow us to identify new opportunities and deliver TrustDefender's range of security solutions to market. We feel confident that TrustDefender will become a leading user-friendly security solution in the fight against online crime," said Mr Egan.
