SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --Fujitsu today launched a
new cloud-based solution that minimizes the risks, costs and complexity of
ensuring robust messaging security. Combining the breadth of information and
communications technology (ICT) security and cloud expertise from Fujitsu with
messaging and web security technology from Symantec, Fujitsu Cloud End User
Protect provides an end-to-end security solution for medium to large
enterprises, bringing a new cloud-based delivery method to Fujitsu's extensive
security services portfolio.

This is the latest addition to Fujitsu's comprehensive cloud portfolio,
intended to provide businesses with the choice they need to modernize their
ICT and innovate new types of service.

According to a report by Forrester security analyst Rick Holland, email
security is a critical component of any company's security portfolio. Email
remains a popular vector for targeted attacks, and a Spamhaus Project study
found that more than 90 percent of inbound messages are not legitimate for a
variety of reasons. Security provided as a service is an increasingly popular
delivery method, with enterprises adopting new models, such as Software as a
Service (SaaS), with additional benefits such as the off-premise isolation of
suspect messages.^1

Fujitsu Cloud End User Protect is a powerful and flexible way to access
best-of-breed messaging security, including email security, encryption and
management from the Symantec Email and Symantec Enterprise service offerings, with the added benefit of flexible integration
with Fujitsu managed security services. Specifying and delivering IT and cloud
projects is complex, and Fujitsu Cloud End User Protect takes the burden of
implementing and managing the IT security system away from in-house IT teams,
allowing them to focus on IT modernization and business innovation.

Delivered via a cloud-based model with flexible monthly payment terms, Fujitsu
Cloud End User Protect eliminates capital expenditure and reduces the need for
new hardware or software. Continuous security is assured with Symantec's
Skeptic heuristics engine and real time link-following technology, which
protects against sophisticated threats and malicious content. Additionally,
Symantec's cloud service also ensures malware and targeted attacks can be
dealt with at a safe distance from the customer's network.

Services within Fujitsu Cloud End User Protect, which can be provided on its
own or as an entire end-to-end solution, include:

  *Expert advice to assess requirements and develop appropriate security
  *Rapid implementation and fast roll-out capability
  *Ongoing service, from basic monitoring to fully managed Security Service
