Financial Services Group Takes E-mail Encryption from Webroot

Webroot Software : 17 August, 2010  (Application Story)
The Jelf Group in the UK enhances its e-mail security and improves regulatory compliance with the use of Webroot's e-mail encryption service
Webroot has announced that Jelf Group has added Webroot Email Encryption Service to the protection it receives from Webroot Email Security Service.

According to David Jones, Group IT Director of the Jelf Group, "Implementing the Webroot Email Encryption Service has been pivotal to enabling Jelf Group to deliver its strategy for achieving compliance within the regulatory framework applied by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and the Data Protection Act."

Jelf provides financial services advice to over 55,000 corporate clients and 70,000 individual clients throughout the UK. Jelf's services include savings, mortgages, school fees and retirement planning for individuals along with a broad range of corporate services for enterprises covering insurance planning, employee benefits and commercial finance. The company has more than 1,000employees across 33 offices in England and South Wales. Since 2004 Webroot has secured the company's rapidly expanding email network, which at its peak receives 400,000 emails per day.

The enormous volume of inbound and outbound email generates abundant opportunity for malware to infect Jelf's network or for data to be leaked due to malicious or accidental action. When reviewing its security, Jelf was keen to ensure that as well as having the ability to effectively quarantine millions of items of spam every month, the content of its emails would also be so secure that they could not be read by anybody other than an intended recipient. Furthermore, Jelf was looking for a solution that was flexible and intelligent enough to be able to identify emails carrying only appropriate content, minimising the opportunity for data leakage via email.

"The need for a totally secure email service is of critical importance to our business," continued Jones. "Our desire to have the utmost protection for our operation is driven by more than the need to comply with the regulatory guidelines governing our industry. Excellence lies at the heart of our entire approach at Jelf, and nothing less is acceptable. Therefore a solution which efficiently and effectively protects our business, team members and clients and which provides us with an identifiable audit trail at all times was an absolute requisite. Webroot has continued to deliver an outstanding service for us."

Mark Tickle, Managing Director EMEA, Webroot, said: "For all businesses, but especially those in the financial sector, the requirement for email security to achieve more than simply supporting the safe delivery of a message from sender to recipient has never been more pressing. Public concern about privacy, increased regulation and greater corporate understanding and responsibility surrounding the management of data traffic means that security service providers really have to step up their game to deliver a truly valuable solution. We are delighted to provide Jelf with enterprise-class security which simply and significantly enhances their email manageability, providing the most advanced protection against data loss, viruses, malware, phishing and spam."
