Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 12, 2005
http://www.securence.com - Securence, a leading provider of email filtering (antispam, anti-virus software) and Web filtering services that include email protection and security services for small businesses, enterprises, and educational and government institutions worldwide, today announced that Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) has selected Securence as its anti spam and anti virus solution provider of choice. APS Â http://www.aps.edu Â outperforms the state of New Mexico in the five core areas of reading, language arts, math, science, and social studies as well as leading the nation's urban school districts in other core competencies. The school system has an email platform of 10,000 users.
According to Demetrius Brandon, APS Manager of Core Services, user and end-user complaints reached unacceptable levels. "Massive amounts of spam were reaching their desktops on a daily basis," he says. "It was not just a nuisance anymore, but rather a real productivity issue."
"We researched two email filtering options, but decided to go with Securence," he added. "Once we were up and running on SecurenceMail, spam levels dropped from 15,000 a day to less than 100. It (SecurenceMail) did very well. It was easy to set up, and the cost was very competitive."
Travis Carter, Securence VP of Technology, "Spam and viruses are a growing and rapidly evolving security threat, and we take it very seriously. With the increasing aggressiveness of spam campaigns and the high level of sophistication of spammer networks, businesses need an email protection vendor with expertise in all the areas related to the spam problem. We here at Securence are dedicated to analyzing new threats and developing effective detection methods with rapid response procedures to ensure that organizations are automatically protected as new tactics arise. We are pleased our solution is working well at such a fine institution as Albuquerque Public Schools, and we look forward to keeping them in good stead."
