Indeck Energy Services Selects Engate for Proactive Botnet, Phish, Virus and Email Security

San Jose, CA (PressExposure) July 27, 2007 -- Engate Technology Corporation, a leading supplier of advanced reputation network profiling technology and proactive email security solutions, today announced that Indeck Energy Services, Inc. have successfully deployed the Engate MailSentinelâ„¢ security appliance to defend against botnet, phish, virus and email threats at the connection level.

“After extensive research into which email security solution would best meet our strict requirements, we chose Engate for their proven ability to permanently stop the high volume of email threats that were consuming our IT resources and employee productivity," said James Hale, IT director, Indeck Energy Services, Inc. "Engate’s solution has been easy to deploy and has stopped nearly 100% of phish, spam and email-born threats at our gateway. Engate‘s ability to proactively stop new threats like botnet attacks before they reach our email servers has delivered new cost savings in bandwidth and storage, as well as, free up valuable IT and employee resources."

“Indeck Energy Services is at the center of the revolution in energy generation that the world is experiencing today. With wide ranging geographic operations and a worldwide customer base, Indeck Energy depends on email free of phish, spam and malicious email born threats,” said Wil Cochran, CEO at Engate Technology. “We are very pleased that Indeck Energy has chosen Engate to fulfill this critical need.”

Preemptive Security Improves Productivity and Reduces Costs Indeck Energy’s previous messaging security solution could not keep up with the increasing volume of phish, viruses and spam messages, and had a high rate of both false positives (legitimate email marked as spam) and false negatives (undetected spam that reaches the inbox). The large volume of spam was slowing Indeck Energy’s network traffic, wasting storage space, and straining IT resources as they were constantly being diverted to manage their spam and false positive issues. Mail servers were being slowed by the mounting volume of inbound spam messages, limiting the productivity of their email users and consuming valuable IT support time.

In order to improve user productivity and ease the administrative burden for IT, Indeck Energy searched for an advanced email security appliance that proactively stops phish, spam and malicious threats at the connection level before it has a chance to compromise IT resources, network security and employee privacy. Engate’s advanced security met all of Indeck Energy’s evaluation criteria, by effectively stopping over 99% of the threats outside of their network, delivering faster throughput and an immediate savings in capital and operating costs as a result of reduced bandwidth, storage and CPU cycles.
