Major Global Reseller Identifies Growing Anti-Spam Requirement for Corporate and Local Government Markets

Sx3, a global specialist supplier of IT services, has today highlighted the growing demand for anti-spam services by implementing Email Systems’ industry leading email management solution across its international network.

With offices throughout the UK – including fifteen in England and Scotland along with a major presence in Northern Ireland – Sx3 has specifically identified a significantly growing demand for email management and anti-spam services amongst local government, education and corporate audiences.

As a sector that is relying more and more on email and is quickly adopting protection to keep pace with this growth, many Local Governments are currently feeling the strain on their networks. Spam reached a new high in August, topping 90% of all email traffic on several occasions and averaging 85% of email traffic according to Email Systems’ research.

Available immediately, the Email Systems suite of services includes anti-spam, anti-virus and archiving solutions, which Sx3 will offer across its existing client base and as standard for all new email deployments. Early indications reveal that a powerful option to scan image attachments is proving to be particularly compelling and of interest to many customers.

Sx3 undertook rigorous testing on the various solutions currently available on the market and chose Email Systems’ service because of its feature rich and flexible suite of services which are presented in a simple graphical user interface, along with the ability to deliver first class reports. Sx3 also cited Email Systems’ competitive pricing structure as a distinct market advantage.

Neil Hammerton, Managing Director of Email Systems, commented: “Over the last 18 months spam has evolved from being a daily irritant to become one of the top issues affecting IT departments both nationally and globally today. However certain sectors are most definitely responding to the problem more aggressively than others, with the corporate market being an obvious example. Our research reveals that Local Government is an extremely badly hit sector and Sx3 is looking to plug that gap with our solution.”

Said Nigel Lyons, IT Security Specialist at Sx3:
“It seems that virus threats are being contained in a majority of organisations with fair success – however Spam remains a major and, left unchecked, almost uncontrollable issue. Consequently, along with the enhanced protection users receive from virus threats we envisage demand and take up for these services to be excellent. Clients will not only benefit from reduced threats but also a significant reduction in the overhead placed on client Internet bandwidth as a direct result of the reduction of undesirable email traffic.”

Sx3 currently works with more than 250 Local Authorities, more than 1200 schools and more than 900 maintenance customers, along with major brand names such as British Telecom, Ernst & Young and Hewlett Packard.
