RSM Bird Cameron has upgraded its email security through integrator Information Gateways.
Information Gateways managing director, Simon Maxwell, said the major update to the Tumbleweed MailGate anti-spam systems included new appliances and backups, most important of which is an IP reduction appliance – a database that checks an email’s domain name for integrity and can reduce spam by 70 per cent.
Information Gateways proactively approached RSM International, parent company of RSM Bird Cameron, to implement the solution.
“It’s part of our ongoing support contract, which runs annually. For the upgrade we supplied the hardware and software, configured it for RSM Bird Cameron and provided training. The whole turn key solution took a few days to implement,” Maxwell said.
“Upgrades are a crucial part of anti-spam – threat protection is a moving target so updates are important to counter threats."
Information Gateways has been working with Tumbleweed for 10 years with a focus on the enterprise space, Maxwell said.
“The market has matured a lot in that time,” he said. “It’s a very competitive market now, with a lot of players and competitors, and most enterprises have some form of anti-spam solution.
“There are more sophisticated and automated ways to handle spam now, with personal quarantine management modules becoming popular. One area where Australian customers are a bit complacent compared to the US is with email encryption, especially in the financial and health sectors.”
