Spam & Malicious Emails

Before reaching out to Altinet, Wellington Academy Trust were dealing with "extensive labour within the IT team" trying to oversee all of their quarantined emails due to strict security policies in place. The team reported a large amount of spam emails filling their junk folder, as well as more spam and phishing emails even making it to their main inbox. 

Being an educational trust committed to protecting the information of their students, and wanting to save IT resources for more demanding tasks, IT Director Simon Chappell searched for a solution that would offer email threat protection - "especially Zero-Hour Threat Prevention" - as well as email encryption for GDPR compliance. 

"The Encryption tools make email data security compliance much easier to achieve."

The team also required a fully scalable solution to ensure that future company growth wouldn't be held back - this feature being especially important during the time of implementation due to the building of their 3rd school, Wellington Eagles Primary. 

Following the implementation of Altinet's Managed Email Security the team saw a quick reduction in IT overhead, taking them from 2 hours per day spent sifting through quarantined emails to 0, allowing them to focus their time and efforts on more important areas. The team also noticed a huge decrease in unwanted emails, with virtually zero spam entering their inbox & a "greatly reduced fear of email threats getting inside the network".
