MX Force Commits 100% to the Channel

Hosted email security vendor redefines the MSSP space for VARs and ISPs.

MX Force, LLC, a specialized developer of hosted email security services, today announced its 100% commitment to the channel.

MX Force offers a channel security solution that allows VARs and ISPs to quickly resell and totally rebrand an industry-leading email security service without the headaches of implementing and maintaining an in-house software or hardware solution.

"While other companies offer partner programs, there is usually a conflict of interest as those companies and their partners target the same client-base," said Mike Makowski, Executive Vice President of MX Force. "Selling direct and via the channel also artificially inflates the cost of the competitive products. By embracing the channel and avoiding direct sales, we increase partner margins and spend our resources where they matter most -- developing features that make our partners more profitable."

The 100% channel approach employed by MX Force allows for significantly higher margins for their partners over their competitors -- in some cases by as much as 10-15%. And since it's on a hosted platform, the revenue generated by the partners is consistent and recurring.

MX Force's enterprise-grade services are a complete email security package including anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-phishing, disaster-recovery and more. The service also includes a defined upgrade path -- clients can start with industry standard email security and the upgrade to MX Force's Enterprise solution. This provides additional revenue opportunities for channel partners.

"We want our partners to provide their clients with a level of service they've come to expect from modern email security systems. We've gone a step further by offering a true enterprise-grade solution at an SMB price," says Makowski.

MX Force's channel partners can also now provide their customers with significant bandwidth, storage and infrastructure savings by pushing the war against email threats entirely outside the corporate network.

The most notable feature is MX Force's administrative console, complete with AJAX-powered controls which allow for performance and ease-of-use unavailable from any other managed email security vendor. An API also speeds integration with clients' existing web interfaces.

MX Force has already signed deals with several channel partners, and is negotiating new deals with other prospects. "We're confident we've found a market niche that has since been abused by other vendors. The rush of interested partners is proving us correct," says Makowski.
