E-mail security service from Webroot secures communications at Weir Group

Webroot Software : 26 November, 2009  (Application Story)
Weir Valves and Controls in the UK has chosen Webroot to provide Software-as-a-Service e-mail protection and reducing the workload on the company's IT department
Webroot has been chosen by Weir Valves and Controls UK, a company that is part of the Power and Industrial division of the global industrial firm The Weir Group, to provide its award-winning Webroot Email Security Service.

Weir Valves and Controls UK supports eight locations worldwide. The company's team of five IT staff restructured their email systems to improve consistency, efficiency, cost-effectiveness and productivity. By adopting Webroot Email Security Service, Weir Valves and Controls UK also reduced the level of IT support required internally by consolidating email security into one fully managed email security service.

Dr Phil Myers, Head of IT at Weir Valves and Controls UK, says, "As a company, we had been using on-premise solutions and supporting these systems internally. The systems had grown organically and it became a disadvantage that not all of the business units were using the same email infrastructure. It was clear to us that we should implement one streamlined solution to benefit the entire business."

"We evaluated a number of services, but we opted for Webroot Email Security Service for its effectiveness, ease-of-use, management simplicity and reasonable cost structure. Based on a standard subscription fee, we can configure each of our worldwide locations' email requirements from a central management portal, with no additional hardware. This gives us a scalable solution that will expand with our business and deliver a lower total cost of ownership."

The company's employees have provided the IT team at Weir Valves and Controls UK with positive feedback. All emails identified by the new Webroot service as spam have been illegitimate. Myers says, "With the increase in spyware, malware and phishing attacks over the past 12 months, it is vital to have the right provider with the right security skills in place. Following a smooth transition to a new email security solution with maximum support and minimum stress, the internal technical support operation has moved from a substantially reactive operation, to proactively working on making the core business more efficient and effective"

Mark Tickle, Managing Director EMEA, Webroot, said: "We are pleased that Weir Valves and Controls UK Ltd have been able to see an immediate security benefit as a result of implementing Webroot Email Security Service. The email security and support problems that Weir experienced are becoming commonplace in companies of their shape and size. Security software-as-a-service (SaaS) for email and Web is rapidly becoming a wiser choice for the security-conscious business."
