"Results with the Sophos ES4000 have been excellent - our users say they no longer have a problem with spam."
Robert Cox, Messaging Service Team Leader, DaimlerChrysler UK

Fact file

Sector: Automotive
Location: UK
Environment: 3500 users in a network of 460 dealers
Solution: Sophos Email Appliance, part of Email Security and Control

Business challenge

  • The number of local websites in DaimlerChrysler's dealer network, and the visibility of their email addresses, increased the company's vulnerability to phishing and other attacks by spammers.
  • The IT team needed to reduce both the amount of user complaints about spam and the high level of maintenance required by the company's existing email security solution.

Technology solution

  • The company wanted a single-vendor solution from a trusted name with proven antivirus and anti-spam expertise.
  • Sophos ES4000 Email Appliance was chosen for its plug-and-play capability, ease of management and effectiveness.
  • The ES4000 requires minimal maintenance and includes many of the benefits normally associated with a managed service.

Business results

  • In just three weeks, the ES4000 blocked 100,000 more spam and malware emails than the previous solution, and quarantined an additional 800,000 spam messages.
  • Reduced administration, together with lower licensing and support costs, will save DaimlerChrysler 25% in IT operating expenditure within three years.
