Security Vendor News
Rebranding part of strategy to streamline operations and expand technology portfolio.
Web security appliance vendor St. Bernard Software Inc. is renaming itself. The software vendor, which targets small and midsize businesses, will be called EdgeWave.
San Diego, Calif.-based St. Bernard targets small and midsize businesses with Web security appliances, software and hosted security offerings.
In a statement, Lou Ryan, the company’s CEO and chairman said over the last year the company has taken significant steps in the last year to improve its senior leadership team and bring on additional employees. The company is also expanding its technology portfolio and overhauling its go-to-market strategy, he said.
We believe all of these efforts will produce greater customer satisfaction and increase business growth and shareholder value over the long term.
The changes include the addition of five new executives, the streamlining of operations and retooling of the company’s back office operation, the company said. In addition the company plans an expansion into new markets with new products.
The new name reflects a broader mission that builds on the company’s strong Web and email security foundation, Ryan said.
St. Bernard acquired managed email security supplier Red Condor in August. Red Condor sells hosted and hybrid email spam filtering products to small businesses and ISPs.
