By distributing the Proofpoint Essentials cloud email security solution to their wide variety of resellers, they ensure that SMEs across Norway and Sweden are completely protected against email threats and server downtime.

“Proofpoint Essentials is ideal for Resellers and End-Users alike”, Egil Loseth, Managing Director, SaaS Security AS

Why did SaaS Security choose Proofpoint Essentials?

SaaS Security required a vendor that provided a 100% cloud service offering, a simple interface with one login for all users and an innovative billing structure for resellers. When SaaS Security’s previous vendor stopped providing an email security solution, they had to begin searching for a replacement. After researching over 10 different vendors without finding one that suited their requirements, a business associate recommended that they try Proofpoint Essentials (at that time called Maildistiller).

Since May 2012 they have been successfully deploying Proofpoint Essentials to around 50 resellers across their region and are working with the team at Proofpoint to help their resellers grow their businesses in the SME market. So far SaaS security’s resellers have been thrilled with the results. They have found the flexibility of the Proofpoint Essentials partnership refreshing as it includes no fixed long-term contracts and innovative licensing models with billing options to suit the needs of each partner. Additionally resellers are excited to have the unique emergency inbox in their email security offering as very few other vendors have this functionality.

“We chose Proofpoint Essentials because of the combination of good price and good product” Egil Loseth, Managing Director, SaaS Security AS

How has the Business package helped SaaS Security’s reseller grow their businesses?

SaaS Security’s resellers have found selling this package very straightforward as it has the full suite of continuity features which end-users love, making it simple for them to position the product.  Now around 80% of SaaS Security’s customers are using the business package. According to Loseth, Proofpoint Essentials is a popular choice because “firstly there are not many email security vendors that offer this great suite of continuity features and secondly the majority of our SME customers prefer a 100% cloud solution.”

Their resellers find the product easy to use which means they can spend more time focusing on growing the business rather than figuring out how the product works. “Implementing Proofpoint Essentials is quick and easy” says Loseth “our resellers especially like that they don’t have to spend a lot of their time managing it.”

“I personally recommend the business package to all my resellers because email continuity is a necessity for any enterprise.” Egil Loseth, Managing Director, SaaS Security AS
