VANCOUVER, CANADA (March 9, 2015), Cirius Messaging Inc. has significantly increased the potential reach of its cloud-based secure messaging solution through a North American distribution alliance with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), a leader in technology and supply chain services. Cirius’ secure messaging enables regulated and non-regulated businesses to easily and efficiently protect, control and manage their email communications even after content has been sent. Under the new agreement, Cirius is now available in the U.S. and Canada to channel partners through the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
“There is an increasing need for companies like Cirius who specialize in delivering an enhanced cloud experience and work to make the cloud more accessible, secure and profitable for channel partners,” said Jason Bystrak, executive director – The Americas, Ingram Micro. “Cloud-based security is an important growth market, and Cirius integrates tightly with many of the other cloud solutions available through Ingram Micro Cloud and the Cloud Marketplace, making them a welcome addition to our growing portfolio.”
Cirius differentiates itself from traditional email encryption tools by its ease of use along with unique business security and productivity features. In addition to message security, users can easily track when an email has been received and opened, effectively recall a message even after it has been read, control whether messages can be forwarded or replied to by recipients, as well securely send file attachments of up to 5GBs. Cirius works on any device including smart phones and tablets and tightly integrates into existing email platforms using existing email addresses.
“Cirius is sold only through the channel, so becoming a part of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace represents an enormous opportunity to gain further exposure,” said Cameron Burke, SVP business development, Cirius Messaging. “More and more businesses are recognizing the competitive advantages that cloud-based secure messaging and productivity tools deliver. This recognition, along with the fact that Cirius is easy to use, is flexible to data jurisdiction and integrates tightly with other cloud solutions, make Cirius a compelling product for resellers.”
Cirius, which is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, and has offices in the UK, experienced a 268 percent growth in revenues in 2014. A large portion of its business comes from organizations in regulated industries such as healthcare, legal, insurance and government that are looking for a solution to meet compliance requirements related to information security. However, the most rapidly growing market segment for Cirius is non-regulated small and medium businesses (SMBs) – a segment that is well served by channel partners working with Ingram Micro Cloud and using the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
“The uptake of secure messaging for non-regulated industries including SMBs is rapidly increasing – so the relationship with Ingram Micro is well timed,” continued Burke. “There is no question that secure messaging, as a means to protect and control all of the valuable data that flows through email communications, is becoming a priority for businesses of all sizes because it has a bottom-line impact.”
Cirius is a simplified, secure communications and information management solution that enables companies to protect and control email and valuable company data. More than 5,000 customers worldwide in every industry sector depend on Cirius’ innovative platform to communicate securely on any device, control what happens to their messages even after they have been sent, rapidly transfer large files, and prevent data loss.
Cirius is a cloud-based solution that is easy to use and deploy, yet powerful in its many applications. In this age of growing regulatory oversight and increased pressure to safeguard customer data, Cirius is helping companies gain a competitive edge through better relationships, increased productivity, lower overhead, and a reputation of trust.
