Reflexion goes Blue

Blue Solutions is making good on its promise to sign up a host of new, smaller software vendors with the addition of cloud-based email security, archiving and encryption firm, Reflexion Networks.

The distributor’s co-founder and director Mark Charleton hinted to Channel Pro in April that the distributor would be taking on a competitor to Mimecast in the form of a cloud-based email security firm.

Like Mimecast, Reflexion hopes to pick up “stranded” Webroot partners after the vendor exits the email security market by 2013.

Reflexion’s Compliance Suite is targeted squarely at small to medium size Managed Service Providers (MSPs). For smaller MSPs, there is no minimum purchase level, no set-up fee and no long-term commitment required, says the firm.

“We only work with vendors that we believe have products and services that add competitive advantage to our customers’ business,” says Charleton (pictured). “Reflexion is a great example of that – a cloud based Suite with minimal upfront commitment and cost is exactly what UK-based small to medium MSPs need right now.

“Reflexion has also worked exclusively in the channel for eight years, it has a very strong product roadmap with direct focus on MSPs, and it has numerous channel accolades to its name.”

“Blue came highly recommended to help bring our solutions to the UK market,” adds Scott Barlow, VP of sales, Reflexion Networks. “We are confident that its growing team of in-house product experts, together with the long-term retention of its passionate staff, will expand our footprint in the UK and accelerate our growth.”
