Email security solutions manufacturer Spamina will look to grow its business in Chile, offering its channels a cloud-based email service and firewall, according to a press release from the company.
Spamina has appointed the company's Latin American sales director, Luis Tapia, to guide the expansion in Chile. Tapia will be in charge of bringing sales channels and managed service providers onboard, while bringing the cloud-based email security solutions to public and private companies in Chile.
According to Tapia, Chilean companies are already very conscious of the security risks with corporate email, which makes the country one of the more lucrative markets for Spamina. Currently, most firms in Chile have security solutions specific to email, instead of comprehensive and integrative solutions that Spamina offers, Tapia said.
Spamina's security solutions - for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large companies and managed service providers - are utilized by thousands of companies around the world. The company has sold more than 10mn products globally.
Spamina announced late 2010 that it had completed the first phase of expanding its cloud computing model in Latin America and Europe, reaching agreements with new partners in countries including Mexico, Brasil and Chile.
Spamina has an office in Argentina's capital, Buenos Aires, and is represented by distributors in Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Bolivia and Guatemala.
