Hosters now have access to additional security options to help drive upsell opportunities and profitability, with the announcement of a new partnership between Open-Xchange, the leading independent provider of open-source email, productivity, and security software, and email security provider MailChannels.
The partnership will see MailChannels technology tightly integrated with OX Cloud – Open-Xchange’s premium cloud-based email and collaboration platform – to help further protect hosting customers’ mailboxes against spam, phishing, and other email abuse.
“In order to keep today’s internet infrastructure providers protected and productive, organizations need a unified solution to secure their incoming and outgoing user content. But another piece of the puzzle is adoption, and that’s why we’ve been working seamlessly to integrate this into webmail offerings without interruptions,” said Ken Simpson, CEO of MailChannels. “Critical infrastructure architectures like Zero Trust email shouldn’t be complex, yet we hear daily that hosters are trying to build something in-house with open-source tools. We have partnered with Open-Xchange to fully implement and deliver a competitive alternative to hyper-scale vendors.”
Legacy systems involve maintaining rulesets and resolving false positives via customer support tickets. MailChannels gives OX Cloud customers additional peace of mind that important emails will never be lost and lets you focus on growing your business.
OX Cloud is hosted and operated by Open-Xchange in geo-redundant data centers in Germany and the USA. It offers end-users a full suite of secure communication and collaboration tools, including email, calendar, address book, tasks, and drive, along with security.
It enables small businesses with little or no IT knowledge to digitalize their business communications. And, as an open-source alternative to hyperscale software vendors, data protection and GDPR compliance are inherent in OX Cloud.
Thorsten Einig, VP of Hosting Sales at Open-Xchange, said: “Secure access to email is at the heart of what we deliver to our hosting customers, so we are always looking at ways we can provide additional options by working with partners who share our ethos and vision.
That’s exactly what we’re doing by working with MailChannels. Based on proven technology, MailChannels will help us to deliver additional security options to hosters that are easy to provision and use, and will help drive profitable upsell opportunities for companies of all sizes.”
