Vancouver, BC and London (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
Cirius Messaging Inc., the leader in secure corporate messaging, today announced the opening of its first European office at One Canada Square in London’s Canary Wharf. The office, consisting of EMEA Business Development and Support teams, will be responsible for driving the expansion of the company’s strategic partners and channel community across the UK and Europe. The new location marks an important step for Cirius, the fastest growing provider of secure email, data loss prevention and large file transfer and productivity solutions, as the company expands to support its clients and strategic partners in the region.
“We are excited to announce our new office in London, which we selected because of the fantastic location to support our growth as well as our clients in the UK and throughout Europe,” said Cameron Burke, SVP Business Development of Cirius. “Cirius has been successful because we understand our customers’ needs for simple, productive secure messaging not only with internal employees but also with their extended external communities. Our technology addresses the challenges our customers face especially when they operate in highly regulated sectors and are required to comply with data protection and privacy laws. The Canary Wharf location presents a unique opportunity for us to connect and build on our existing relationships in the finance and technology sector.”
According to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc., worldwide spending on information security will reach $71.1 billion in 2014, an increase of 7.9 percent over 2013, with the data loss prevention segment recording the fastest growth at 18.9 percent. Total information security spending will grow a further 8.2 percent in 2015 to reach $76.9 billion. The growth rates for cloud-based security services are expected to overtake those of traditional on-premises security equipment with operational cost reduction, flexibility of deployment across multiple IT environments, and fast implementation and product updates among major factors driving demand. The biggest growth opportunities are in areas such as messaging and web security with data loss prevention (DLP), encryption and authentication to emerge as the fastest growing segments to be delivered in the cloud.
The Cirius Secure Messaging platform provides a cloud-based solution for securing and tracking email, file sharing, and data loss prevention without the need for Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) allowing easy Cloud deployment. The platform is used by both enterprise and SMB organisations to meet the most demanding secure messaging and DLP requirements. Superior end-user functionality (backed by 7 patents) includes real message recall, for-your-eyes-only password protection, and real-time tracking of messages viewed, printed and/or forwarded means users don't have to sacrifice familiarity, functionality and simplicity for security. The company was recently named to the Canadian Innovation Exchange CIX Top 20, a listing of the most innovative companies in Canada and became the first secure messaging solution certified with Parallels APS 2.
“We are passionate about our channel and with IT spend for cloud-based security enterprise capabilities to grow to 10% and more than 30% of security controls deployed in SMB to be cloud based by 2015, I believe this is an incredible opportunity for our partners. Our cloud secure messaging platform, which provides email encryption, real-time message tracking, data leak prevention, large file transfer, mobile messaging and API integration, allows partners to seize the market by offering their customers a truly compelling proposition,” said Burke. “Our partners are instrumental to our success and we are committed to helping them expand and grow their business with Cirius. Our new local office allows us to build even stronger relationships, engage more efficiently and ultimately provide the support our partners need to win business.”
