CYREN is a leading player in this field and its WebSecurity solution provides a cost effective way of applying web filtering to protect against internet threats and enforce corporate web surfing policies. Cyren enables us to expand our portfolio of IT solutions that are innovative, easy to use and deliver immediate benefits to customers operating in diverse market sectors.”
