Grupo Industrial LaLa Supports Global Expansion with Commitment to CP's Mirapoint Messaging Platform

San Mateo, CA, Sep 06, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Critical Path, Inc. (CP), a global leader in Messaging, Security, and Unified Communications, today announced that Grupo Industrial LaLa (GILSA) has made a significant commitment to CP's Mirapoint Messaging Platform as the organization's email and email security solution for their users across North America.

GILSA is one of the largest dairy companies in the world. Headquartered in Mexico, GILSA manufactures and distributes dairy products through a finely tuned supply chain across the North American continent. The last five years have seen GILSA embark on an international expansion program from its Mexican base. This began in 2008 with the purchase of its first US-based manufacturing plant in Omaha, Nebraska.

Acquiring new operations has required seamlessly integrating organizations and data into GILSA. To support that effort, GILSA assigned its Network and Architecture team to specify the requirements for a new communications system across the company. Working with local technology provider Virmar (, GILSA built the business case that formed the basis for investment.

Ing. Hector Curiel, TI-Technology Planning Manager at GILSA explains, "My first challenge was to craft a strategy to transform the communication platform from a local departmental system to an international communications network. To achieve this, selecting a solid and reliable email partner was critical. We chose CP because its solution met our requirements of a standard, robust, reliable, and flexible email solution platform that supports Grupo LaLa's growth in any country we have operations." Mark Palomba, CP's CEO, shared, "When Grupo LaLa began looking for a partner, they carefully built a business case based on several key elements including performance, reliability, high availability, mobile support, tight data security, support for future growth, email archiving, ease-of-use and more. CP is delighted they have chosen us to meet the needs of their business now, and as they expand internationally. CP is one of the largest providers of email solutions in the world, supporting over 225M accounts, and will continue to provide the high-quality email, security, and archiving services so relied upon by this leading company." Mirapoint Message Server, RazorGate, and RazorSafe: Message Server, RazorGate(TM), and RazorSafe(TM) provide a solid foundation for a secure messaging infrastructure, providing a standards-based platform that intelligently serves, secures, manages, and archives messages with multi-mode client access and full malware protection.
