LONDON (ots) - Radio 100,7, a state-sponsored radio in Luxembourg,
relies on GFI MailEssentials for Exchange/SMTP and GFI MailSecurity
for Exchange/SMTP to block email spam, viruses, exploits and threats
at server level, before these can be distributed to its users. Both
these products also help the organization to drastically reduce the
total cost of ownership (TCO) of its IT infrastructure. Details are
featured in a new case study issued by GFI.
"As a public radio, we receive and distribute hundreds of emails
daily: Email has become our primary communication tool for both
internal and external communication," explained Pascal Tesch, CIO at
radio 100,7. Although email has simplified corporate life at the
radio station, it also presents a number of problems that were
crucial for Mr. Tesch to solve.
A single email virus would be a disaster
Mr. Tesch stressed: "As we are now running a 100% digital radio,
based on computerized editing and storage of audio-files, we cannot
afford a single virus. One email virus would spell disaster for us --
it would block our flow of work and all our communications, and would
result in huge recovery costs too."
Keeping spam away
Another item that Mr. Tesch had to tackle was spam, as this was
flooding the radio station's mailboxes. In the rush to get rid of
these unwanted emails, the risk of important mail mistakenly being
deleted was high. Radio 100,7 needed to solve this problem without
affecting the legitimate email messages that needed to be received.
The right solution also had to support the station's mail server,
Microsoft Exchange Server.
An obvious choice
For radio 100,7, the GFI MailSecurity/GFI MailEssentials bundle
seemed to be the ideal solution. Among all the server level anti-spam
candidates, "GFI MailEssentials was an all-round winner," said Mr.
Tesch. "The new Bayesian feature included in GFI MailEssentials is a
revolutionary approach that shows how GFI is at the forefront in
finding new ways to keep its customers spam-free."
To combat email threats such as virus, exploits and Trojans, Mr.
Tesch felt that GFI MailSecurity, available in a bundle with GFI
MailEssentials, was the obvious choice. Radio 100,7 was particularly
impressed with GFI MailSecurity's inclusion of multiple virus
engines, its content filtering abilities and its seamless integration
with the Microsoft environment.
"As we are a non-profit organization, the fact that we are keeping
away dozens of unwanted mails, viruses and exploits every day with
GFI technology means that we are dramatically decreasing the TCO of
our IT infrastructure." Mr. Tesch explained. The full case study may
