Web Design Firm Eliminates Spam and Sustains E-Mail Service During Internet Outage
Storm ID relies heavily on e-mail to support its Web design and software development business. With the company receiving up to 60,000 spam messages each day, it became very time-consuming for employees to find legitimate e-mail messages. In addition, many employees saved important e-mail on their local hard drives and on the server, creating large inboxes and duplicate messages, and making it difficult to locate important records. Working with The Adventi Group, Storm ID subscribed to Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services, which provides corporate-level filtering and archiving services for the 20-member firm. These services helped the firm virtually eliminate spam and viruses, slow inbox growth, restore the credibility of e-mail messages, and continue normal operations during a three-day Internet outage.
