Museum Of London Selects Policy Patrol For Anti-Spam And Signatures

Kingston-upon-Thames, UK – 3rd November 2004 – Red Earth Software, developer of content security software, today announced that The Museum of London Group has deployed three Policy Patrol installations for blocking spam and adding signatures on their Exchange 2000 servers, servicing a total of 500 users. Policy Patrol’s flexibility and range of features were the Museum’s main motives for choosing Policy Patrol above other similar solutions.

‘We were looking for a solution that could not only block spam effectively, but could also add personalized signatures and compress attachments’, said Richard May, Network Manager of the Museum of London. ‘Our design department wanted to add company-wide signatures to fit in with the Museum’s design standards, and at the same time include seasonal promotional texts regarding our latest exhibitions. Since Policy Patrol allows us to create one global signature that is individualized by using merge fields from the Active Directory, it enabled us to effortlessly include promotional text that changes frequently’.

By blocking spam mails, Policy Patrol has greatly improved the Museum’s employee productivity levels. Richard May: ‘Policy Patrol tags 1 out of every 4 messages as spam, therefore substantially reducing the time that our employees spend sifting through their emails each day’. In addition to improving productivity, Policy Patrol has helped the Museum of London provide a safe working environment by protecting employees from offensive and embarrassing emails. ‘By stopping spam and compressing large attachments, Policy Patrol also provided a substantial reduction in bandwidth usage and network congestion and avoided the need for a system upgrade’, Richard May added.

Richard May is clear about why the Museum picked Policy Patrol as their email filtering system: ‘Policy Patrol simply provided the best range of features to add in to Exchange Server. Although other products offered certain features as well, none covered all of our requirements in one package.’
