Inflow's Focus on Security Attracts New Customer Praemunio

6/2/2003

Nashville, TN  Today, Inflow

Inc., a leading provider of managed web application hosting and

outsourced IT services, announced the addition of new customer

Praemunio, a managed security and intrusion detection provider based in

Nashville, Tennessee. The company receives services within Inflow’s

Nashville Internet Data Center (IDC).

“Inflow was on our short list of providers we looked at very

closely,” said Thomas Lewis, President for Praemunio. “What

differentiated Inflow for us was their detailed procedures around

information security and protecting our information assets. Other

companies we evaluated had similar physical and environmental safeguards

but Inflow stood above the rest with the rigor of their detailed

procedures and processes.”

Earlier this year, Praemunio began looking for a provider that could

deliver a secure Network Operations Center. The company had previously

hosted its own applications and databases internally, but after

experiencing a surge in growth, it needed additional capacity.

“Given the size and model of company that we were, we realized our

core competency was information security. We wanted to leverage our

internal resources on solving security issues for our clients and not

our own network operations issues. Our business model changed to become

conducive to outsourcing the network operations,” said Lewis.

”The nature of our business requires that we place physical and

logical security at the top of our priority list,” said David Klements,

general manager for Inflow in Nashville. “We are glad to be recognized

by Praemunio, a managed security service provider, as an IT outsourcing

partner able to meet their stringent requirements.”

Praemunio’s client list includes a multi-billion dollar insurance

company, a large healthcare client and an international financial

services company. What attracted Praemunio to Inflow was not only its

local presence and attention to procedure, but also its geographic

footprint.

“Inflow met our local needs but also had redundancy and disaster

recovery capabilities with its other locations throughout the country,

which we found reassuring. We like the fact that we can take advantage

of expansion and disaster recovery options at other sites,” Lewis said.

Praemunio migrated into Inflow’s Nashville IDC in early April of this

year, and there were no issues or disruptions, according to Lewis.

“Inflow as a company is very detailed and everything went smoothly,”

he said. “We were very pleased about how helpful Inflow’s staff was. In

fact, our company’s technical people, who are very hard to impress, have

told me that the Inflow staff ‘really knows its stuff.’”
