Calyptix Builds Staff to Meet Market Demand

December 10, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Internet security firm, Calyptix Security Corporation, has extended its sales staff as well as its development staff in accommodating the growing demands for its UTM (Unified Threat Management) device, AccessEnforcer™.

Calyptix’ sales efforts will be significantly stepped up with these additional team members, enabling the company to build on the strong installation base already making Internet security simpler and more cost effective for small to medium-sized businesses across a wide range of business sectors.

Ben Sanders and Scott McConnell, joining the Calyptix team as Channel Sales Representatives, are broadening the exposure of AccessEnforcer across the Southeast.

The Calyptix development team is also growing with the addition of two programmers. Josh Pilkington, a Microsoft Specialist, and Zach Wadler, a Unix Specialist.

“This is an exciting time for Calyptix. Our staff expansion is a direct result of our growing success with customers and partners. The UTM is being rapidly adopted by businesses across all sectors, including healthcare, retail, legal, accounting, non-profits and financial services organizations,” comments Calyptix CEO Ben Yarbrough. “Most IT professionals recognize that the traditional firewall is simply not enough anymore in today’s threat environment. We will continue to build our team to address the demands we are experiencing in both sales support and development.”

Calyptix Security, launched by Drs. Yuliang Zheng and Lawrence Teo, makes AccessEnforcer available to small to medium size businesses (SMBs), providing a comprehensive affordable solution that is easily activated, managed and maintained.

AccessEnforcer protects networks from spam, viruses, spyware, unauthorized web surfing, hackers and other cyber threats in organizations in the professional and financial services, manufacturing and not-for-profit sectors. The appliance is offered by authorized resellers that seek comprehensive security strategies for their clients. Calyptix Security’s expertise is evidenced in several industry-wide vulnerability discoveries and in DyVax™, the company’s proprietary inspection engine that dynamically filters email traffic, executable files and Microsoft Office files from true zero-day threats without reliance on signatures. DyVax has proven more successful than leading antivirus solutions.
