DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 23 May, 2013- Help AG today announced that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Proofpoint, Inc.,(NASDAQ: PFPT), a leading security-as-a-service provider, to provide the vendor's cloud-based email security solutions to enterprises in the Middle East. These solutions offer zero-hour protection against a wide range of email based threats such as phishing, spam, viruses, directory harvest attacks and targeted email attacks.

As a leading IT security solutions and services provider in the region, Help AG will further provide its customers with value-added services which include systems design and architecture based on enterprise business requirements, proof of concepts with well-defined success criteria, implementation services, 24x7 local support services and quarterly health checks for the new solutions portfolio.

“Cloud services promise to eliminate the hassles of the day to day management of IT thereby allowing IT departments to focus on functions that can enhance business efficiency and drive revenues. But for this to be a reality, enterprises must have both, the best cloud-based solutions coupled with qualified support that covers everything from systems implementation right to enforcement of SLAs. This ensures that customers reap all the benefits that the cloud offers and this is exactly what the partnership between Proofpoint and Help AG stands to represent,” said Stephan Berner, Managing Director at Help AG.

In response to the growing demand from enterprises in the region, Help AG conducted a thorough analysis of a number of the leading cloud-based email security solutions in the market. As with the other security products in its extensive portfolio, the company has itself utilized the Proofpoint solution. Stephan Berner said, “We strongly believe that if we are to recommend a solution to our customers, we should have complete faith in it ourselves. In keeping with this, we deployed the Proofpoint solution in our own environment and are extremely happy with its performance.”

Help AG intends to eliminate email-based security vulnerabilities in customer environments through the deployment of Proofpoint Enterprise Protection™ which provides the most comprehensive email security threat classification and email security management. The solution offers unmatched zero-hour protection against hard to detect phishing and spam email. Proofpoint has also tied up with leading anti-virus software vendors to include enterprise class virus protection in the platform.

The email security solution utilizes Proofpoint's sender reputation management service to block connections from malicious IP addresses. This not only acts as the first line of defense against spam emails, directory harvest attacks, denial-of-service and other email-borne attacks, but also results in substantial bandwidth savings.

Recognizing targeted email attacks as a growing trend in the Middle East, Help AG has also decided to offer Proofpoint's Targeted Attack Protection™ which deploys an array of advanced technologies including big data analysis techniques, URL interception, and malware sandboxing to provide unprecedented protection that follows messages and users wherever they go – whether they’re behind the corporate firewall or off the corporate network, on mobile devices, or public terminals. Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection complements existing email security technologies to achieve reliable protection against spear phishing and other targeted email attacks.

Help AG has signed up as a Proofpoint Advantage Partner and is pursuing full technical and sales trainings and certifications. Ciaran Rafferty, VP NEMEA at Proofpoint said, “We are impressed with Help AG's commitment and strong technical expertise and are very excited about this partnership. We believe that our world class technology, coupled with Help AG’s credentials as one of the region’s leading security solutions providers, presents a strong value proposition to customers in the Middle East.”
