Guildford-based College of Law is a leading supplier of legal education and training in the UK, with affiliations and endorsements from many of the country's leading legal firms. The IT team had installed GWAVA, an anti-spam and anti-virus solution for GroupWise systems, to protect its network of 2,500 PCs. However, the solution was not performing well, and vast amounts of spam continued to inundate its computers. Webroot Managing Director Mark Tickle described why a standard anti-spam product was not sufficient for the college's needs. The service supports pre-defined and custom dictionaries of regular expressions and keywords to aid in detecting and controlling messages with sensitive or inappropriate content. Administrators can also create custom rules by combining subsets or supersets of dictionaries.
