We often share information about having a real firewall guarding a company’s network instead of relying on personal firewall software.
The truth of the matter, though, is that most hacks pass right through the firewall in the form of spam email with malicious links and payloads. So the best defense is a hosted antispam system.
With such a system, all email goes to a system run by a 3rd party outside of the company’s network, where it is scanned and cleaned using “up to the minute” definitions and heuristics. Only safe, clean, non-spam email is passed into the company’s network.
As spam represents over 95% of all emails, this keeps the network much safer and reduces the clutter in everyone’s inbox – especially smartphone users, who can miss a critical email in a flood of spam.
Cohn Consulting Corporation sells and manages hosted antispam systems for business in Atlanta.
We are looking to meet the CEO of Atlanta companies with 10 to 30 employees who all carry smartphones. Who wants to ensure that his field personnel have all the information they need in a timely fashion so they can beat the competition.
“[Your] professionalism in dealing with this situation at the Zero hour is definitely a rarity. Your team’s response was to take on a project that you had no prior knowledge of other than a customer was in a tight spot and needed assistance.”
