SpamTitan is a significant improvement from our previous vendor, it has reduced the amount of spam getting through, its simpler to maintain, analyse, better capabilities and has excellent reporting.
Aardman Studio had to replace their existing service at very short notice and required a service that at least matched the specification of the current vendor and within budget.
Email security is very important to Aardman as email is a portal into the core company and its users, “it is a very significant and successful attack vector that needs good security focus”.
“We are constantly targeted by focused Phishing campaigns that present a significant risk to us, as this tends to be the first part of an attack attempt.”
Aardman Studio required a solution that was flexible and scalable. The solution must have the following abilities for scalability:
“SpamTitan surpassed expectations and our existing email security solution, it is a significant improvement over the product it replaced, it has better capabilities and much improved reporting and logging”
“The reporting and greylisting features are brilliant and have made a big impact on the organisation!”
A new feature to Aardman Studio. Greylisting works by requesting that the sender´s server resends the email. Typically, spammers' servers are too busy sending out spam emails to respond to the request and, after a period of time without receiving the resent email, the Greylisting function rejects the email as spam. “the ability to create our own bespoke greylisting filters very quickly is incredible”
“very easy to use and gave us key information very quickly”. We really like the reporting, it gives us exactly what we need and does not overcomplicate things.
The reporting feature provides an overview of the status of SpamTitan while the history reporting page enables you to review all mail transactions that have passed through SpamTitan. Aardman Studio was able to review System Diagnostics via the System Information page where they could run troubleshooting commands. The Graphs page shows daily, weekly, monthly and yearly statistics on the number of email messages processed, marked as spam and containing viruses. In addition to this, quarantine reports are sent to users at specified times, showing emails blocked via SpamTitan. Users have the option to deliver, allow or delete the emails in the quarantine report.
“Cost is very reasonable for what it delivers and much cheaper than its closest competition”
Simple deployment: “Very easy to set up and install with an excellent support team backing that up”
Scalability and flexibility: SpamTitan was able to provide full flexibility as required by Aardman Studio.
Bafta award-winning Aardman Studio, best known for its production of Wallace & Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, Timmy Time and Morph and many more, had to make a fast switch to a new email security provider as their current email security system stopped trading. Aardman studios compared SpamTitan with competitors, but after trialing SpamTitan Cloud, they were blown away with the product, the ease of use, the simple implementation, impressive feature set, the responsive support team and great price compared to competitors, SpamTitan surpassed their current product and expectations.
Implementing a successful Email Security solution was critical for Aardman Studio for the protection of the company, “Email security is very important as email is a portal into the core company and its users, it is a very significant and successful attack vector that needs good security focus.”
“We are constantly targeted by focused Phishing campaigns that present a significant risk to us, as this tends to be the first part of any attack attempt.”
With the simple implementation and setup of SpamTitan, Aardman Studio was quickly able to switch providers and minimise the risk of potential security attacks, such as phishing attempts against the organisation.
As a result of moving to SpamTitan:
“SpamTitan has reduced the amount of spam getting through, from an IT team perspective it is much simpler to maintain and to analyse than the existing product saving us a lot of time and allowing us to intercept spam campaigns much faster.”
SpamTitan is a “significant improvement compared to our previous vendor, it has better capabilities and much improved reporting and logging”
SpamTitan met key requirements for Aardman studio in choosing a new email security solution.
SpamTitan pricing was within Aardman studio budget and was much cheaper than competitors and previous vendor, starting at $395
Aardman studio trialled SpamTitan for 14 days to see if it could solve their problem of protecting their emails and preventing phishing attacks.
