Seccom Global has unveiled Securescreen, the latest software-as-a-service suite to be developed by the Australian managed security services provider.

Securescreen replaced SecureMail and protected network connectivity points using technologies from Zscaler, IronPort, Checkpoint and Fortinet.

Seccom Global chief information officer Gavin Matthews (pictured third from left) said the company chose its partners because they were leaders in their respective fields.

"We need to be delivering something that will be required next year, the year after and after," Matthews said.

"We looked at products that were backed by market analysts and obviously industry recognised clients."

He said the partnership with Zscaler delivered a proxy-based content protection solution.

Seccom said its solution that required no hardware or software was a flexible network security system with low latency.

"Clients told us they want to take back control of http and https [web protocols]. With Securescreen you have group policy and you're able to have a level of control across all these mobility devices and sites like Facebook."

Matthews said administrators can allow some staff lunch-time access to sites such as Facebook.

He said Securescreen offered anti-virus, spyware, bandwidth optimisation, anti-spam and URL filtering.

And it scaled to protect hundreds of thousands of users through its global, in-the-cloud infrastructure.

Last year, Seccom Global bolstered its managed security services offer through partnerships with Astaro and cloud-security provider Zscaler.
