BorderWare Technologies, an internet gateway products and services company, today announced that its iForce partnership with Sun Microsystems has been extended to cover the Middle East region. The iForce initiative is the program that brings together under one umbrella Sun systems, software, services and iForce partners for customers to leverage their network and improve their business processes.

"BorderWare is pleased to partner with Sun to deliver enterprise-class email firewall appliances to protect corporate networks. By addressing email security at the network edge, the iForce Mail firewall appliances, powered by Sun and BorderWare, become a key component of the corporate security strategy," says Peter Cox International VP at BorderWare commenting on the Middle East partnership.

Sun and its iForce partners are working together to provide standards-based security appliances that will meet the growing demand for integrated solutions. Sun's vision of a security appliance combines using its software, Solaris its network operating system and network interface cards for the Sun platform. The appliance makes it easy for customers to buy a complete integrated solution.

"BorderWare has been very successful in the Middle East market for many years now, and are confident that business here is set to boom given the increasing demand for secure computing. Our customers and partners in the region will get our full support as we are increasing our investment and business activity there," he adds.

BorderWare Technologies positions itself as a 'Security Appliances company' and creates appliances for network firewalls, VPN, email, DNS, and document collaboration, for protecting mission-critical network resources in sensitive environments. The 10 year old Toronto-based company also has partnerships with Cisco Systems, RSA Security, Brightmail, Kaspersky Labs, St. Bernard Software, BlueCat Networks and SSH Communications Security.
