Alt-N Seeks Microsoft Channel Partners

For most of the last 12 years, Alt-N Technologies, based down in Grapevine, Texas, has been a Microsoft competitor -- a role not easy for any smaller company to play. Alt-N's bread and butter has been an e-mail product, a competitor to Microsoft's mighty Exchange. As such, Alt-N isn't a Microsoft partner and has fairly limited experience working with folks in the Microsoft channel.

Now, however, Alt-N is looking to work with Microsoft partners. It's got a new product out, SecurityGateway, which is (to quote the product description directly) an "e-mail spam firewall for Exchange and SMTP servers."

Marketing Director Kevin Beatty spoke with RCPU not long ago and said that he'd like to tap into the network of Exchange partners; he's looking for folks who might want a nifty add-on to the basic product.

"We've really set it up with the interface being very administrator-friendly," the affable Beatty told RCPU in a bid to talk up the product. "We've put a lot of mechanisms in place that allow for domain-level settings down to the end user level."

Not only that, Beatty said, but it's pretty easy to become an Alt-N partner: "We don't put a lot of people through big certification processes. We get them on through a Webinar," he said.

So, there you go, Exchange folks. Check out your editor's fellow Texans at www.altn.com if you're interested.
