Advanced Protection Needed

As a prime target for cyber attacks, Leeds United FC had basic spam and virus protection on top of their emails to secure from anything and everything coming into their network, but such a large and public organisation must concern themselves with advanced threats, which in turn requires advanced threat protection.

IT Manager Mark Broadley and his team recognised a need for a more advanced approach to their email security after seeing an increase in the amount of harmful and malicious attachments still coming into their mailboxes.
