SMX Email Security Case Studies
Auckland law firm McVeagh Fleming has gone live with the SMX Cloud Email Archive solution – switching seamlessly from a cumbersome and costly in-house email archiving legacy system to the state-of-the-art SMX cloud solution that combines much higher functionality with lower cost of ownership.
It’s not just inbound email threats that keep Fisher and Paykel Finance Information Systems Manager Malcolm Jenkins awake at night, it’s the potential for highly confidential customer and company information to leak out.
From day one it was obvious that this was not a service we would be turning off in a hurry. The transition was painless. Within a week the pressure on staff and our internal systems had lifted.
But now that we have peace of mind regarding security, we are appreciating the many other advantages of the SMX service.
Secure email management solutions from SMX, including inbound email filtering and SmartRules®, stopped spam, phishing and whaling attacks almost instantly for international fitness industry giant Les Mills International, with SmartRules providing an essential extra layer of defence against further cyberattacks.
Communication is key to Mainfreight’s position as the leading transportation, logistics and International freight company in Australasia – and a spam-clogged mail system was slowing Mainfreight down.
We just said "Do it" and 24 hours later we had no spam.
Waikato District Health Board (DHB) implemented the SMX cloud email security service as part of moves to increase email security while reducing longer term cost of ownership.
Grant Ardern, ICT Systems Manager at Pay of Plenty DHB says spam had been a significant issue for some time. Previous anti-spam and virus solutions were ineffective with the most recent solution - an outsourced mail scrubbing service - deleting bona fide messages but allowing spam to slip through.
India has one of the world’s most serious spam and virus problems, with some studies identifying India as the source of around 10 percent of the world’s total spam traffic.
SMX said that the process would be quick and easy, and that spam would disappear – and it has.
Chief Technology Officer, Jason Wills, says Harcourts was an early adopter of managed mail services and had been using a service - based solution from an SMX competitor for the past five years.
Government and Education
Tasman District Council has blazed a trail as the first local government organisation to use SMX Cloud Email Archiving to meet compliance obligations.
SMX’s cloud-based anti-spam and anti-virus solution has simplified email security and reduced spam to ‘near zero’ at Westlake Boys’ High School.
More than 60 percent of New Zealand’s Government departments and agencies use SMX as their Cloud email filtering and security solution. Customers include New Zealand Defence Force, Waikato District Health Board, Department of Conservation, Department of Statistics and a long and growing list of SOEs, CRIs, Local Government, and Health and Education customers.
For New Zealand's Department of Conservation - Te Papa Atawhai (DOC), the cloud-based SMX Email Security platform, offered as part of DOC's IT service provider Fujitsu's managed services portfolio, ticked all the boxes.
Charity and Not for Profit
Oxfam Australia is part of a global movement dedicated to fighting poverty and injustice. For over 600 staff members and volunteers spread across 40 sites in 11 countries, email is the primary communication method and a critical link between Oxfam Australia staff members and their community partners
We experienced no hiccups at all in setting up the SMX service and have gone out of our way to share our very positive experience with many other organisations we work with.
