Nemx seeks fed resellers

Nemx Software, which recently launched an e-mail monitoring product, is looking for federal resellers.

The Ottawa, Canada-based company earlier this month debuted SecurExchange, a product set that monitors incoming, outgoing, and internally circulating e-mail in Microsoft Exchange environments. Company officials said SecurExchange targets customers' risk management and regulatory compliance concerns. The government sector is one of the markets that the company plans to pursue.

"Our strategy is to partner with some select VAR partners that focus specifically on the government marketplace," said Larry Trenwith, Nemx's vice president of marketing. "We do not intend to go after the government business on a direct basis," he added.

Specifically, Nemx seeks Microsoft solution providers that work in the messaging space and focus on security products, Trenwith said.

Trenwith identified the government's policy-making process as one application scenario in which SecurExchange could find a federal role. An agency typically establishes a team responsible for creating draft positions and making recommendations, he said. Often, consultations will extend beyond immediate team members. "Much of the information to be shared will be of a sensitive, confidential or even secret nature," he said.

In those cases, "SecurExchange would allow content-driven rules/policies to be defined that reflect the various levels of privacy associated with the various kinds of information," Trenwith said. So a policy can be defined that allows e-mail containing confidential financial information to circulate among team members, but not to other internal or external addresses.

SecurExchange is available in several versions including Corporate, which helps organizations enforce acceptable use policies and content rules for internal, incoming, and outgoing e-mail. The product also archives critical e-mail for compliance purposes and provides anti-spam capability. Pricing starts at $999 for 50 users.
