Security software vendor Tumbleweed Communications has teamed with ILumin Software Services to deliver e-mail protection and archiving and compliance systems to financial services firms. Virginia-based iLumin has also acquired Tumbleweed's e-mail archiving product, Message Monitor.
Under the terms of the partnership, Tumbleweed and iLumin will jointly sell their integrated e-mail firewall, e-mail archival and regulatory compliance systems to new prospects.
Steve Schneider, CEO, iLumin, says: "The combination of Tumbleweed and iLumin's e-mail capabilities provides customers with a solution that encompasses the entire lifecycle of an email message."
Tumbleweed has also sold its e-mail archiving system, Message Monitor, to iLumin for an undisclosed sum. Schneider says the new product extends iLumin's existing product set and increases its presence in the compliance and archiving markets.
