Hosted e-mail security for stockbroker

AN4 Group : 12 August, 2008  (Application Story)
Simple Investments deploys Proofpoint hosted e-mail security solution from AN4 Group
AN4 Group has announced the successful installation of a hosted email solution at stockbroker Simple Investments.

Simple Investments is a privately owned, independent firm of stockbrokers, based in the heart of Surrey. It provides services for institutions and private clients, managing share portfolios and advising on stock markets.

The company prides itself on delivering a high quality and discreet offering which focuses on each of its customers as an individual. However, constantly increasing levels of spam flooding Simple Investment’s inboxes meant that the company was at risk of losing important businesses from their valued clients.

Barry Fudge, Operations Manager at Simple Investments explains: “We were getting inundated with spam emails, and it was getting worse and worse: everyone’s mailbox was getting filled with junk. But we still had to go through it all in case we missed an important email from one of our clients, which would be disastrous.”

The company was wasting a huge amount of time and effort sorting through emails, so trusted IT partner AN4 suggested Proofpoint’s On Demand Email Security Solution, which delivers industry-leading messaging security features as a cost-effective, on-demand anti-spam service.

“Proofpoint on Demand offers unified email security and data loss prevention features as a cost-effective, easy-to-adopt and easy-to-manage hosted service - ideal for a small company such as Simple Investments,” says Kristian Connor, Sales Director for AN4 Group. “Proofpoint on Demand offers effective protection against both inbound and outbound email-borne threats, without requiring the installation of on-premise hardware or software.

“In addition, AN4 was able to offer the company flexible customisation of its email security preferences, policies, enabled modules, end-user features, alerts and reporting,” he adds.

Since the implantation in May, Simple Investment has seen a marked rise in productivity, with spam banished from their mailboxes. AN4 manages the system day-to-day, looking after any technical issues, service updates, and settings changes required – leaving Simple Investments free to make their clients’ businesses a success too.

Says Fudge: “The service has been very successful. It’s reduced the amount of spam to a very manageable amount. It’s done exactly what it was supposed to do!”
