Mr. Krishna Kumar
Space2Host supports more than 25,000 Mail Boxes and 3,500 sites and virus and
spam protection is the primary business need.
Space2Host sought a strong anti-virus and anti-spam solution to mitigate viruses and
spam. Explaining the criticality of the security features, Mr. Krishna Kumar, CEO of
Space2Host said, “Saying that we process more than half a million (500,000) mails
every day, can help you understand the volume of mail traffic we deal with. So we
have two requirements: spam filtering, virus filtering for our mail traffic. The solutions
ought to be aggressively strong to block any harmful and unwanted content and yet
be flexible and subtle enough to give NO False Positive. No customer can afford to
lose a single mail-based business opportunity.”
The Cyberoam Solution
Mr. Kumar evaluated a few best-of-breed solutions that lead the mail security
segment and a few known Unified Threat Management solutions. After careful
consideration, Space2Host decided to deploy Cyberoam’s CR1000i appliance in their
VSNL Data Centre in Chennai.
Elucidating the prime reason for the deployment, Mr. Kumar said, “Cyberoam is a
perfect balance of performance, robustness, stability, technical assistance and price.
It fit in well in our existing setup. Most other players have an exorbitant per user
licensing structure. At the same time, we were not happy with their technical support.
These two factors swung the scales in favor of Cyberoam.”
Out of the 500,000 spam mails hitting the mail-boxes, Cyberoam filters out almost
400,000 spam mails with near 100% accuracy. That is, out of the total mail traffic,
almost 80% is spam that hits Cyberoam.” On deployment, Cyberoam started working
almost instantaneously; without extensive human intervention, or training. Unlike
some leading solutions that need to be trained in spam identification, Cyberoam
started working at a peak performance level and has remained there since.
Cyberoam’s content agnostic and language independent RPD™ technology
enhances deeper penetration and wider scope in the fight against spam.
“Since Cyberoam deployment, not a single customer has complained that a mail was
wrongly classified and that he or she has lost a business opportunity because of us.
Simultaneously they are very happy to see that all the spam has vanished into thin
air.” Mr. Kumar said.
Thanks to Cyberoam, out of the 500,000 mails, almost 10% of the mails which are
malware infected are weeded out. Since Cyberoam deployment, there has not been a
single mail-based malware infiltration incident reported.
The technical support of Cyberoam aims at empowering the end customer. The
knowledge transfer efforts are well-directed and have made Space2Host totally selfreliant
in handling and administering Cyberoam to gain maximum mileage from the
Summarizing his Cyberoam experience, Mr. Kumar said, “Cyberoam is a solid security
product that ensures complete business continuity. Cyberoam delivers exceptionally
high performance like the best-of-the-breed solutions, but at a fraction of their cost.
I would strongly endorse it as - dependable security.”
