Strong Growth Continues at TitanHQ with Large Influx of New Customers

It has been a busy summer for TitanHQ. The company has been working hard to improve its award-winning cybersecurity solutions to offer even greater protection from the ever-increasing range of email and web-based threats.

TitanHQ has also been expanding its customer base and now protects an increasingly diverse range of companies from email and web-based cyberattacks. The summer has seen a swathe of new enterprise clients sign up and start using TitanHQ’s suite of cybersecurity products.

Many new enterprise customers have joined the TitanHQ community over the past few months, from SMBs to large organizations with thousands of employees. While each company has a different infrastructure and requirements, all share a common goal: A need to protect their employees, networks and data from cyberattacks.

TitanHQ would like to take this opportunity to welcome its new customers from the healthcare, hospitality, education, financial services and information technology sectors, a selection of which are detailed below:

European Hospitals Group

Cyberattacks on the healthcare industry have increased considerably over the past two years, with many large healthcare organizations falling victim to malware and ransomware attacks. Many of those attacks occurred as a result of employees visiting or being redirected to websites where malware is silently downloaded. Preventing employees from accessing malicious websites is an essential, yet often overlooked, aspect of cybersecurity.

The European Hospitals Group recognized the risk of malware downloads and decided to take action. The hospital group employs 1,800 people across two locations in the city of Brussels in Belgium: St. Elisabeth in Uccle and St. Michel in Etterbeek/European Quarter. The multilingual hospital offers excellent care for patients and now has excellent protection against web-based threats with WebTitan. WebTitan is used to carefully control the websites that can be accessed by staff, blocking web-based threats and preventing inappropriate website content from being accessed via its network.

US Beef Corporation

The hospitality sector has been extensively targeted by cybercriminals over the past year. Those malicious actors have attempted to gain access to sensitive customer data, commonly doing so via malware infections on POS systems.

US Beef Corporation is best known for its highly popular chain of restaurants: Arby’s. The first Arby’s restaurant was opened by US Beef Corporation in 1969. By 1995, the popularity of the restaurant chain saw it ranked as the 20th largest franchise in the United States. New restaurants continue to be opened and now the company has broken into the top ten franchises in the United States with 350 establishments, employing 7,500 members of staff.

US Beef Corporation recognised the need to protect its network from email- based attacks and prevent staff from falling for phishing attacks. US Beef Corporation chose SpamTitan Cloud as its anti-spam solution.

TitanHQ is now protecting the inboxes of all those employees from phishing and social engineering attacks and helps to keep the company’s network free from malware and ransomware.

Burlington Edison School District

There is growing pressure on schools and higher education establishments to implement technological solutions to restrict the websites that can be accessed via their wired and wireless networks. Children need to be protected online and prevented from accessing potentially harmful website content such as pornography and images of child abuse. Web filtering is also an important element of CIPA compliance.

The Burlington-Edison School District recognises the important of technological controls over acceptable Internet usage policies, and has chosen TitanHQ’s WebTitan to prevent inappropriate content from being accessed by its 230 staff and 3,900 students across 6 schools in Skagit County, Washington.

Miway Insurance

The insurance industry stores vast quantities of sensitive data on customers – a treasure trove of information for cybercriminals. Keeping that data secure and networks protected requires a range of cybersecurity controls.

Johannesburg, South Africa based Miway Insurance is a direct short-term insurance and financial services company offering a wide range of home and business insurance products. The company employs 3,000 staff members, the majority of whom require access to the Internet at work.

To protect against web-based attacks and prevent malware and ransomware downloads, Miway insurance chose WebTitan.  WebTitan is used to block access to malicious websites where drive-by malware downloads occur and to restrict access to unacceptable website content.

TNS Group

Stamford, CT-based TNS Group is a leading provider of managed IT support services in the Tri-State area and has clients throughout the United States and beyond. The firm was looking for a solution provider that could provide a spam filtering solution that could be easily offered to its customers to protect them from email-based threats.

Through SpamTitan Cloud, TNS Group can offer its clients an advanced spam filtering service to protect against phishing and social engineering attacks, malware and ransomware and keep inboxes spam free.

All the above companies have now had their TitanHQ products deployed and are protected from email and web-based attacks. If you are looking to improve your organization’s security posture and want to ensure your networks are kept malware free, contact the TitanHQ team today to find out more about the WebTitan web filtering and SpamTitan anti-spam solutions.

TitanHQ Named 2017 Computing Security Awards Finalist for its Anti Spam Solution

The 2017 Computing Security Awards ceremony will be taking place on October 12, 2017 in London. The gala event attracts cybersecurity firms from all over the world, all of which hope to leave with a prestigious award.

The Computing Security Awards are highly coveted. Each year, the best enterprise cybersecurity solutions are selected as finalists and are put to a public vote to determine the best loved, and most effective cybersecurity solutions. This year, there will be 33 awards presented to enterprise-class cybersecurity solution providers, resellers and distributors.

To be named as a finalist for the 2017 Computing Security Awards, a company must have gone the extra mile and developed a highly effective and easy to use solution to keep enterprises protected from an ever-increasing range of cyberthreats.

As always, the quality of the competition is strong. This year’s finalists include new products that have come to market in the past 12 months alongside tried and tested cybersecurity solutions that have been tweaked to improve performance and block more threats.

TitanHQ is proud to announce that its enterprise-class spam filtering solution – SpamTitan – has been named a finalist in the ‘Best Anti Spam Solution’ category of the 2017 Computing Security Awards.

Web Filtering in the News

Small, medium and large businesses in the United States are being urged to employ a web content filtering solution for Wi-Fi networks to ensure that minors are not exposed to potentially harmful website content such as pornography.

Internet safety organizations and child protection organizations have been petitioning some of the nation’s largest retail outlets, restaurants, and coffee shop chains requesting the use of web filtering solutions for Wi-Fi networks.

Free Wi-Fi networks are increasingly being used to download pornographic material, while illegal website content such as child pornography is being uploaded and shared due to the added degree of anonymity that free public Wi-Fi offers. Consumers are now actively seeking out family friendly Wi-Fi access points and are avoiding businesses that fail to block inappropriate website content.

In the past week, after being petitioned by Enough is Enough – one of the most active internet safety organizations in the United States – and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, Starbucks announced that the decision has been taken to start using a web content filtering solution to prevent the accessing of pornography in its coffee shops. McDonalds also announced this week that a web filtering solution has now been implemented to block pornography in its U.S. restaurants.

With Web filtering in the news and increasing pressure being placed on organizations to offer clean, family-friendly Wi-Fi access to customers, an increasing number of organizations are now looking for web filtering solutions to block pornography and prevent other types of undesirable website content from being accessed via their Wi-Fi networks.

Meet TitanHQ at the HostingCon Global 2016 Conference

Success for MSPs : Interview with SpamTitan Technologies anti spam expert Steven Kenny.

What can SpamTitan anti spam do for Managed Service Providers? Interview withanti spam, email security,anti malware Steven Kenny, Head of Support Services,  SpamTitan Technologies.

Can you start by telling us about SpamTitan? 

Steven : SpamTitan began producing email security solutions over 15 years ago, and now provides powerful email  and web security solutions to businesses worldwide. Security and networks have grown more complicated in the past 15 years, but SpamTitan has remained focused on delivering easy-to-use solutions that are comprehensive but not complex.Who do the experts turn to when they need a security solution? Seventy-three percent of SpamTitan’s customers are Managed Service Providers or system integrators. SpamTitans’ security solutions are used by network administrators and IT managers in 124 countries.

What Does the Email Threat Landscape Look Like Today for MSPs?
Steven : Email threats are increasing and getting more sophisticated, putting MSPs’ customers, their finances, and their identities at risk. MSPs may find their very survival as businesses under threat. Their antagonists, originally the hackers down the street, are now highly professional international crime gangs that are often based in Russia or China where law enforcement can’t get to them. Their attacks are getting increasingly sophisticated, with damage that might be evident immediately but sometimes isn’t apparent for years.

The most devastating attacks often start with a seemingly innocuous email. The recent  Carbanak financial attack where a hacker group stole as much as $1 billion from banks and other financial companies worldwide since 2013 started with a simple phishing email. The target breach from last year was a massive assault that exposed the credit card and personal data of more than 110 million customers, appears to have started with a malware-laced email sent to employees at a firm that did business with Target. Anyone operating a data center—or anyone just connecting to the Internet–needs to make fighting spam and malware a top priority. Everyone who goes online must have the tools to fight phishing and social engineering.

Let’s talk about email. How do you convey the importance of email protection in today’s culture?
Steven : Email is still an important business tool. It’s also the favourite method of entry for attackers. No news there.  As a gateway to sensitive customer information, crucial databases, and other valuable data, email remains one of the most effective threat vectors around.

Email is older than the web, which may mean that it’s lost some of its lustre. Many see social media platforms as more exciting, and the fact that email is non-proprietary means no one is pushing its agenda. But email is actually growing in influence; as the number of internet users grow, so does email usage. Every social media account requires an email address, and most people have more than one.

Email security solutions need to continue to evolve to keep up with the increasingly sophisticated attacks that threaten all of us. At SpamTitan, we do our best to educate the IT community and potential customers on the consequences of doing nothing. Putting the right protection in place is key. Prevention is cheaper and easier than dealing with the damage and financial loss resulting from a successful hacking attack.

What should MSPs be doing today to protect themselves from email threats?
Steven: MSPs often provide email security as a service. One customer getting hacked can result in the IP address for many customers getting hacked – a single bot on the network can bring down the service for multiple customers. Preventing IP blacklisting in the first place is critical; MSPs need to ensure the anti-spam solution they deploy has features such as IP rotation, bandwidth throttling, and rate controls, allowing limits to be set for emails sent per unit time, size, domain and per mailbox. If a potential blacklisting event is detected, the solution also needs to alert the network administrators so action can be taken. MSP IP addresses can be very well protected by using specific features within SpamTitan like Rate Controls and IP Delivery Pool features.

MSPs see their margins squeezed by commoditisation of services by technology giants. They need more cost effective infrastructure and technology at the same time as they’re being pressured to continuously improve customer service. MSP margins, which directly affect profits, are being squeezed by the economy, competition, and the need to keep up with technology. MSPs customer vary and some like more control of the service provided than others. With SpamTitan MSPs can delegate administration of domain groups and/or domains to their customers, this provides some control to the customer and also frees up the MSPs time to deal with other issues.

Attackers still rely on email as a method for deploying malware, whether via advanced phishing attacks, drive by downloads – the list of threat delivery methods is increasing all the time. There is no single cure for these persistent and increasing threats. Powerful email security (inbound and outbound filtering) provides a barrier for attackers to overcome. SpamTitan includes the latest version of the Kaspersky anti-virus software  which offers zero-day threat detection via Cloud based signatures. MSPs need to deliver consistent protection. A  heavily layered security solution like SpamTitan successfully delivers this integrated approach.

What kind of MSPs use SpamTitan?
Steven : MSPs looking to offer their customers world-class email security without the requirement of sophisticated infrastructure, expensive expertise, or massive time investment for what should ideally be an invisible service. Because spam filtering is considered to be an integral part of an email service MSPs, customers aren’t willing to pay extra for it.

The MSP customers who use SpamTitan are knowledgeable and know what they want in a solution. Many are moving from cumbersome and overly complex products. They know what they need to find in an alternative that really works for them.

What’s the most common feedback you get from MSP customers?
Steven : How easy SpamTitan is to set up and the fact that once deployed there are no reports of customers being hit by spam or email viruses. It’s not surprising that our solution is so successful; it uses multiple layers of testing and filtering and comes with double anti-virus protection.

Our MSP appreciate the fact that SpamTitan is easy to use, easy to manage, and extremely affordable compared to other solutions they’ve tested. A major reason why MSPs invite SpamTitan into their product portfolio is the attractive pricing. With MSP margins shrinking MSPs are very careful about planning their technology to give them the edge in the market and to provide reasonable returns, and they find they can depend on SpamTitan to deliver.

The new SpamTitan Cloud service gives companies all the benefits of the multi-award-winning SpamTitan solution, without the high costs associated with deploying and managing local or virtual resources. With SpamTitan Cloud small- to medium-sized businesses receive unbeatable spam protection, improved network performance, and fail-safe reliability in an affordable package.

”Uptake of cloud computing is set to increase further in 2013 with cost savings and flexibility being the key motivators,” said SpamTitan Technologies CEO Ronan Kavanagh. “Today’s announcement marks the next generation deployment phase for the SpamTitan suite of email security solutions offering even more flexibility to our customers as well as increased efficiency, affordability and ease of use. We have always been innovative in our offerings – this takes that innovation to the next level.”

By using the SpamTitan Cloud service SMBs can configure SpamTitan to their exact requirements and be ready to block spam in minutes. Requiring no on-premises software or end user client software, set up is extraordinarily simple and quick. After account setup and MX record redirection to SpamTitan Cloud servers, email is automatically cleaned of 99.98% of spam, before any optional configuration changes.

Hosted e-mail services hold several advantages over their in-house counterparts but there are drawbacks as well. Each organisation needs to examine their individual requirement and circumstances before deciding on the best option. At SpamTitan Technologies we offer a full range of email security solutions including an appliance for in-house deployment as well as the cloud based service – both offering the same core functionality.

Appliance versus services
One advantage of using a service like SpamTitan Cloud is that the volume of mail coming to your internal network is greatly reduced – by 80 to 90 percent in most cases. SpamTitan Clouds robust clustered network infrastructure significantly lowers the risk that your e-mail service will fail.

SpamTitan Cloud also offers a buffer for your e-mail system. If your internal e-mail server fails or your Internet connection goes down, your email will accumulate on SpamTitan Cloud until your in-house problem is resolved. SpamTitan Cloud offers all the enterprise level features you find in the SpamTitan appliance options, such as unbeatable spam blocking  of 99.98%+, double anti-virus protection, LDAP, Dynamic and aliases file recipient verification as well as SASL authentication and much more.

A fully featured free 14-day trial of of SpamTitan Cloud can be accessed from the SpamTitan website and used immediately to block spam, viruses and other email threats. Prices start at $450 for 50 users for 1 year, with no additional costs. Read more about SpamTitan Cloud.

SpamTitan, now TitanHQ, Reports Record Growth in ISP Customer-base in 2009

Boston, MA and Galway, Ireland – 16th February 2010 – Virtualized security software appliances are playing a vital role in helping Internet Service Providers (ISPs) combat ever increasing levels of spam according to SpamTitan Technologies, the makers of powerful yet easy-to-manage spam and web filtering software.  SpamTitan’s sales for the financial year ended 31 December 2009 showed a clear trend among ISPs for Cloud-, VMware- and ISO image-based anti-spam appliances.

Levels of spam account for 19 out of every 20 e-mails sent according to the European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) in its third annual spam report just published. The report urges ISPs to make a more “dedicated effort” to get spam under control.  ENISA says that a third of the largest service providers spend millions of Euros every year on anti-spam measures while one in four small ISPs has an annual spam-fighting budget in excess of €10,000 / $13700. 

 “As levels of spam accelerate ISPs are under pressure to apply increasingly costly resources to stopping malicious mail reaching customer inboxes,” says Ronan Kavanagh SpamTitan CEO.  “But ISPs have to balance this against the need to manage costs and win new business.  SpamTitan is proving increasingly popular with ISPs for its ability to help them derive increased efficiencies by moving to a virtualized, Cloud-based model and as well as for its accurate filtering and very low false positive rates.”

In 2009 the ISP sector accounted for 30 per cent of SpamTitan’s customer base and this is expected to rise to 45 per cent in 2010. SpamTitan’s ISP customer profile ranges from the small local providers to the very large industry providers supporting tens of thousands of users. ISP customers moving to SpamTitan recently include HBC Networks and PageOne Communications.

 SpamTitan’s pricing actually came as quite a shock to us – it had more features than many of the other products we looked at, but cost substantially less,” explained Jim Brown, Network Analyst with HBC Networks. “Since we installed SpamTitan, it has blocked over 4.5 million junk emails that would otherwise have placed a serious drain on our customer’s mail servers.”

“For me, the real winner with SpamTitan is its unlimited user licensing model at a realistic price,” commented Gavin Lowle, Principal Information Technology Engineer, of PageOne.  “Other advantages are its compatibility with VMware and how easy it is to deploy.  We had SpamTitan up and running in minutes. It also has an extremely small footprint and uses minimal resource overhead. The multiple instance and clustering options in SpamTitan for VMware, in conjunction with VMware Vmotion, Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) and High Availability (HA), ensure our e-mail infrastructure remains highly resilient at all times.”

SpamTitan has been designed from the ground up to meet the complex scaleability and management needs of ISPs and other managed email service providers. .More and more this means operating in a virtualized environment as ISPs seek to optimize their server usage. “SpamTitan is one of the few virtualized security solutions to offer an extensive set of tools that are specifically tailored to the needs of ISPs,” said Kavanagh. “Features such as cluster management help increase total system capacity, provide enhanced monitoring and automatic failover capabilities . ISPs also have the ability to add domains directly into the SpamTitan API to automate the process of adding new clients to an ISP’s mail-filtering service. This flexibility along with the product’s reliability, capacity and tracking abilities is invaluable to dynamic environments such as ISPs where customers subscribe and unsubscribe on a continuous basis.

ISPs have to ensure customers do not experience delays when trying to use their server. This can happen if bandwidth is being swamped by useless and potentially harmful spam. SpamTitan takes care of all this for ISPs freeing them to concentrate on other areas of the business. The January 2010 Virus Bulletin test cemented this fact voting SpamTitan No 1 in blocking the most spam ahead of many of the best known industry brands.  According to Kavanagh, ”SpamTitan provides ISPs with all the bells and whistles at a fraction of the cost. We see a large number of our new ISP customers moving from existing big brand names. ISPs  are under a great deal of budgetary and service level pressure and we are delighted that more and more are turning to SpamTitan as their best option.”
