Prior to the Ironscales deployment, Webmart were paying a lot of money to Microsoft and the solution wasn’t performing to the desired standard. Basic spam was coming through, threats were still being picked up frequently and there were security concerns being flagged at board level. An additional layer of defence became essential for Webmart to secure their email environment.

Webmart is an integrated marketing agency founded in 1996. They support organisations with their sustainable print and digital marketing campaigns, employing over 40 people, across three sites in the UK. Marc Abbey is a member of the five person IT team, managing Webmart’s internal infrastructure and purchasing.

Following a visit to a Security Expo, Ironscales caught Webmart’s eye. Therefore, they proceeded to look into the platform alongside three other solutions with Xeretec. The Xeretec team visited Webmart’s office for a discovery session to benchmark the solutions following demonstrations of each technology. Marc says, “Once we completed this process, it became clear that Ironscales was the right solution for our business. It looked next generation with its AI functionality and was priced very competitively”.

Drivers for Change

  •  A solution that was proactive, not policy based and complemented Microsoft’s native capabilities
  • A solution that provided spam filtering and protection against more sophisticated email threats that are often able to bypass defences by using backdoor techniques such as spoofing, social engineering, and fraud
  • Improved reporting capabilities and an email security solution that was easier to manage and maintain
  • The ability to retain their ISO 27001 certification and continuously improve their cyber security posture
