Who are we and how did we get here?
Who is Mailprotector?
Mailprotector® is a SaaS-based B2B email security, compliance, and encryption platform delivered exclusively through a network of global IT partners.
Founded in 1999, Mailprotector’s complete email security platform includes anti-spam, anti-phishing, email continuity, email archiving and business-class hosted email solutions. Additionally, Mailprotector is the creator of a patented and award-winning email encryption tool, Bracket.
From web builder to email defender
Mailprotector’s parent company, Virtual Connect Technologies, was founded primarily as a website development company. At that time we had developed a couple of intranet sites whose users were fed up with spam, viruses, and the whole lot of issues that come with an unprotected email system. So we rolled up our sleeves and set ourselves to work, and soon we had engineered a basic email filtering system that worked beautifully for our customers.
Mailprotector for everyone
Our system worked so well that we decided that we might be able to share it with others. So we re-tooled our system to work as a managed service, added a ton of new and useful features, called it “Mailprotector” and put up a website for it. Soon people started giving Mailprotector a try, then they raved about it to their friends, and before we knew it we were protecting the email of tens of thousands of users and processing millions of messages each day.
In the years since those early days, we’ve continued to improve the quality of our products and responsiveness of our service, as we adapt to the ever changing climate of email security.
We’ve also changed how we distribute our products. Today Mailprotector is available exclusively through our amazing Partner resellers. We love what we do and are so excited to be serving the partner community with email products that make their job easier and give them peace of mind on a daily basis. Don’t get us wrong, we’re proud of our roots, but this is way more fun than building websites!
