  • 29 January, 2007 11:23

<p>SYDNEY—January 29, 2006— Reflex Security®, Inc. (, pioneer and innovator in intrusion prevention systems (IPS), has launched operations in Australia and appointed Colin Lim as Sales Director ANZ.</p>
<p>Not “just another IPS vendor”, Reflex Security stands out from its competitors by offering unique products including an industry-first virtual security appliance providing firewall protection and intrusion prevention within virtualized computing environments (Reflex Security is a Certified VMware Virtual Appliance Maker), as well as a true 10Gig capable IPS appliance.</p>
<p>“We view Australia and New Zealand as a strategic region for the growth of our market within APAC,” said Bill Hicks, Vice President, APAC. “We’re continuing our success in the market having been named SC Magazine’s “Best Buy” in the 2006 Group Test of IPS vendors.”</p>
<p>Lim explained: “Among other things, Reflex offers a solution to the problem of securing virtualized computing environments. Traditional firewall &amp; IPS appliances cannot see traffic inside a virtualized environment and thus cannot address this security hole, while Reflex offers a virtual security appliance that sits on the virtual machine preventing threats such as DoS, viruses, malicious access violations, intrusions and so forth.”</p>
<p>Prior to joining Reflex Security, Colin Lim was Regional Sales Manager ANZ for Fortinet, where he was responsible for developing and managing all sales for the unified threat management (UTM) vendor in the ANZ region. In his time with Fortinet, Colin successfully tripled average per quarter revenue and closed one of the company’s largest Asia Pacific deals with Australia’s largest telco. Colin has over 12 years experience in ITC sales and business development.</p>
<p>Among Colin’s first tasks at Reflex is the signing of an appropriate distributor. He is also looking for quality VAR’s who understand the benefits of IPS for both physical and virtual networks.</p>

By unifying discovery, deep-packet inspection and a comprehensive prevention engine, Reflex Security accurately blocks internal and external security threats to prevent today's most serious network attacks.
