A new version of TitanHQ’s cloud-based anti-spam service and anti-spam software was released on March 5, 2018. SpamTitan version 7.00 includes patches for recently identified vulnerabilities in the ClamAV antivirus engine and a change to the primary AV engine used by the solution.
The primary anti-virus engine of SpamTitan version 7.00 is provided by the Romanian firm Bitdefender. Bitdefender is an award-winning antivirus engine that provides exceptional email protection against malware, viruses, and ransomware. Combined with the secondary AV engine – ClamAV – users benefit from excellent protection against email-based malware and ransomware attacks. The dual AV engines ensure malicious software is not delivered to end users’ inboxes via email attachments.
The change to Bitdefender was a natural choice and TitanHQ is planning to further its strategic relationship with the Romanian cybersecurity firm over the coming weeks and months. The change to the primary AV engine will be unnoticeable to current users, who will continue to be protected from malicious threats.
The update to the latest version will not happen automatically. Customers who have ‘prefetch of system updates’ enabled on their SpamTitan installations will be able to see the latest version in their list of available updates and can manually trigger the update to the new version. Customers who do not have that option enabled need to “check for updates” via their user interface.
Customers have been advised to read the documentation accompanying the latest version prior to installation as it includes important information on how the update should be applied. TitanHQ explains that it is not possible to update from v4 or v5 of the platform to SpamTitan version 7.00 without first installing version 6 of the platform.
Customers should note that the update must be performed before May 1, 2018 to ensure continued protection, as support for the Kaspersky AV engine – used in all versions of SpamTitan prior to v7 – will cease on that date. TitanHQ has also informed customers that support for v4 and v5 of SpamTitan will also stop on May 1, 2018.
SpamTitan v7.00 includes patches for the following vulnerabilities: CVE-2017-12374, CVE-2017-12375, CVE-2017-12376, CVE-2017-12377, CVE-2017-12379, CVE-2017-12380. All of those vulnerabilities exist in ClamAV. The latest version also improves protection against DoS attacks and should be applied as soon as possible. The update will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.
TitanHQ is pleased to announce that the team will be attending several Datto Roadshows this year, including the Datto Roadshow in Tampa on January 16, 2018.
The Datto roadshows are exciting events for managed service providers (MPS). Attendees get the opportunity to meet the Datto team and other managed service providers and gain valuable insights and useful advice to help turn 2018 into a highly profitable year.
The roadshows feature several deep dives, where the latest product releases and tech will be showcased to help MSPs get the most out of products and add new services to their stack.
The Deep Dives at the Tampa show will include Datto Networking, Datto SaaS Protection, and Ransomware Protection.
The Datto Networking Deep Dive gives MSPs the opportunity to learn how to boost MMR with the most MSP-centric networking product line in the world. Datto will be explaining its industry leading cloud backup and data recovery solutions in the Datto SaaS Protection Deep Dive.
The current ransomware epidemic has companies crying out for solutions that can help them to prevent attacks and recover quickly when disaster strikes. This creates an ideal opportunity for MSPs to improve their bottom lines by offering ransomware protection and recovery services. There will be a deep dive on ransomware where attendees will discover best practices to adopt to ensure clients are protected and data are secured.
The Tampa event will also see the Passportal team on hand to explain how clients can be protected from the full range of current cybersecurity threats and how MSPs can help their clients prevent data breaches, while lowering costs and increasing value.
TitanHQ will be on hand to explain the opportunities that exist in cloud-based spam filtering, web filtering and email archiving services, and how straightforward (and profitable) it is to provide these services to clients.
Additionally, the event is a great networking opportunity where MSPs can speak to other Datto partners and gain valuable tips to help them improve productivity, cut costs, and boost profits.
If you are unable to attend the Tampa event, don’t worry. There will be many other Datto Roadshows taking place over the coming weeks. The TitanHQ team will be attending several of these events.

The Etihad Stadium in Melbourne is one of the world’s most impressive sporting venues. Opened in 2000, the stadium can house 53,359 sports fans and in the 17 years since the turnstiles first opened, the venue has catered to more than 35 million fans.
The stadium hosts Big Bash League Twenty20 cricket matches, A-League soccer games, Australian Football League matches, International Rugby Union games, and recently, the Soccer World Cup qualifiers.
A requirement for modern sports stadia is WiFi access for guests, and the Etihad stadium is no exception. Guests are offered free Wi-Fi access via more than 700 access points around the stadium.
Providing access to Wi-Fi is one thing. Ensuring Wi-Fi can be accessed securely and patrons are protected from web-based threats is another. To ensure that all users of its Wi-Fi network are protected from online threats such as malware and phishing websites, and to make sure its network cannot be used to access illegal or inappropriate website content, the Etihad stadium turned to TitanHQ – The leading provider of DNS-based Wi-Fi security.
The technological achievements of the stadium – which includes a fully retractable roof – is now matched by advanced technology to protect its Wi-Fi network, making the stadium “one of the most technologically advanced, secure and connected stadiums in Australia,” according to TitanHQ CEO, Ronan Kavanagh.
The stadium is protected by WebTitan Cloud for WiFi – A 100% cloud-based Wi-Fi filtering solution. Being infinitely scalable, the solution can be used to protect any number of Wi-Fi access points, from a one-hotspot SMB to ISPs running thousands of access points. Since the solution requires no additional hardware, it is cost effective for large enterprises and sports venues to implement. No software is required, so users of the Wi-Fi hotspots do not need to install any apps and there is no latency, ensuring users benefits from fast Internet speeds.
Geoff Hall, I.T. Manager at Etihad Stadium, said “Our guests are the big winners from our partnership with TitanHQ. A total of 704 high-density Wi-Fi access points have also been installed to provide fast, free and secure internet connections to each and every fan. WebTitan Wi-Fi filtering delivers a transparent experience, with super-fast and secure Internet’’.
As Ronan Kavanagh explained, “WebTitan for Wi-Fi is designed to provide secure Wi-Fi throughout venues while simplifying its management. WebTitan for Wi-Fi prevents malware from compromising guests’ devices or stealing guests’ identities over any port, protocol, or app. For stadium management and owners, this brings considerable peace of mind.”
TitanHQ, the leading global provider of secure Wi-Fi solutions, has announced a new partnership with 4ipnet.
4ipnet is a global provider of affordable WLAN products and solutions to businesses, providing them with opportunities for value added services and the monetization of Wi-Fi networks. 4ipnet customer base includes businesses, educational institutions, healthcare organizations, and hotels around the world, with clients including Chunghwa Telecom, FLC group, Adrian Hoteles, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Berjaya Hotels and Resorts, and the PPHE Hotel Group.
TitanHQ is an award-winning provider of email and web filtering solutions which make networks safer and block a wide range of cyberthreats. TitanHQ’s SpamTitan and WebTitan suite of products have been adopted by schools, universities, colleges, hotels, banks, governments, ISPs, and SMBs in more than 129 countries around the world.
The partnership between 4ipnet and TitanHQ has seen 4ipnet accredited as a provider of Friendly Wi-Fi. Friendly Wi-Fi is a certification program for public Wi-Fi hotspot providers that confirms the Internet is filtered to prevent obscene material such as pornography from being accessed, and that all webpages included on the Internet Watch Foundations blacklist – webpages known to contain images of child abuse and child pornography – are blocked.
The Friendly Wi-Fi program was created by the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and is supported by the government and major Wi-Fi providers. The initiative was launched after concerns were raised of the risks to minors from accessing the Internet via public Wi-Fi networks that lacked the parental controls typically implemented at home. Any location that displays the Friendly Wi-Fi symbol has been confirmed as having appropriate controls in place to ensure the Wi-Fi network can be accessed safely and securely by minors.
4ipnet customers are now protected from a wide range of online threats, and can carefully control the Internet sites and web pages that can be accessed via their Wi-Fi networks. 4ipnet customers will also be able to market their Wi-Fi hotspots under the banner of Friendly Wi-Fi, ensuring customers are prevented from viewing inappropriate and illegal website content.
New SpamTitan Review
Spam Filter Reviews, a website providing reviews of spam filtering solutions, has awarded TitanHQ’s SpamTitan with a glowing 4.9 gold star rating. The new SpamTitan review saw the product attract marks of 4.9/5 for both functionality and real-time emulation.
Each spam filtering product reviewed on the site is assessed on 18 different elements, with SpamTitan scoring highly on 16/18 of those elements.
The reviewers were particularly impressed with the ability to easily adjust scam scoring on all incoming emails, which allowed the filtering level to be fine-tuned to make spam filtering more aggressive or more lenient.
Another major plus was the ease at which quarantined messages can be checked. With any spam filtering solution, there will be false positives from time to time. Virus Bulletin reviews have shown SpamTitan’s false positive rate is particularly low – less than 0.03%. However, when legitimate messages do trigger the spam filter, checking those messages is straightforward.
In its review of SpamTitan, Spam Filter Reviews explained the ease at which quarantined messages can be safely viewed from the admin console. Users can view simple metrics such as the message date, recipient, envelope address, and message size, but also more detailed information using one of four different tabs.
SpamTitan lets users view the full HTML message, as well as the entire SMTP protocol header. If the email is genuine, users can quickly and easily release the message for delivery and whitelist the sender’s email address to ensure future messages are always delivered.
As Spam Filter Reviews points out, the ability to view the full body of a captured message is absent from many spam filtering solutions. This feature can save admin staff valuable time.
SpamTitan also rated particularly well on reporting. SpamTitan allows users to configure an extensive range of reports, providing users with all the information they need to measure inbound mail flow metrics. Spam Filter Reviews explained that many leading spam filtering solutions do not have such extensive spam reporting functionality. The ability to configure quarantine reports to show all messages since sign up or those captured since the last scheduled report was also praised, and found to be absent in many other spam filtering solutions.
Accessing the SpamTitan console was also found to be easy, regardless of the device being used. Since the control panel is full HTML, it can be easily accessed on mobile devices, while the admin console was found to be intuitive and easy to use.
Set up was also a quick and easy process, taking just 13 minutes. “13 minutes is extremely good considering the we had a previously MX record TTL of 5 minutes, so there is a reasonable likelihood that, if the domains TTL had previously been set to a lower TTL, the set up would have been even quicker.”
The only down point was the lack of link re-writing functionality, although due to the high degree of accuracy of the spam filter, this negative was somewhat mitigated.
Spam Filter Reviews’ SpamTitan review summarized the product saying, “All in all, SpamTitan is a very stable, clean platform with many additional features which makes an admin’s life a lot easier to manage user expectations,” also explaining “It is our comparative opinion that SpamTitan’s system is extremely under-rated as it’s clean, accurate and functionality full features certainly exceed and surpass some of the most well know Products on the market today.”

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.
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.
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.

The past 12 months has seen the number of new malware and ransomware variants grow at an extraordinary rate. Email spam volume has increased once again and email is now the attack vector of choice for cybercriminals.
2017 has already seen major attacks on businesses and some of the largest malware campaigns ever conducted. Many of those attacks have targeted employees via email. The need for an advanced spam filtering solution has never been greater.
The SpamTitan suite of cybersecurity solutions has been developed to offer enterprises the best possible protection against email-borne threats. With SpamTitan, enterprises are able to quickly and easily protect their end users and networks from all forms of email-based attacks.
The solution is flexible, scalable, easy to deploy and manage, blocks more than 99.9% of spam and malicious emails, and has an exceptionally low false positive rate.

TitanHQ has announced a new partnership with m3connect, one of the largest wireless Internet service providers in Europe. TitanHQ’s cloud-based WiFi content filtering solution – WebTitan – is now being used to protect m3connect customers from malware and ransomware downloads, while carefully controlling the Internet content that can be accessed across its WiFi networks.
Since the company’s formation in 2001, m3connect has grown into one of the largest providers of wireless Internet in Europe, with the company operating from its European offices in Aachen, Karlsruhe, Berlin and Sibenik and in San Francisco in the United States. In addition to offering customers wireless Internet with a flexible network design, the firm provides a wide range of digital services including VoIP, VoD, location based services, guest infotainment systems and digital signage and serves clients in the finance, retail, hospitality, transport and healthcare industries.

TitanHQ has announced a new partnership deal with Dubai-based cybersecurity powerhouse Zservices that will see the company’s anti-spam solutions for businesses pushed out to organizations throughout the Middle East and Africa.
TitanHQ has been working in the field of email security for two decades and has developed a range of cybersecurity solutions for businesses. Zservices will be adding TitanHQ’s SpamTitan anti-spam solution to its extensive portfolio of cybersecurity solutions, filling a gap in its email security offerings.
SpamTitan is a robust and powerful anti-spam solution for businesses that offers protection from malicious emails and blocks 99.97% of spam from being delivered. The massive increase in malware and ransomware has made the use of anti-spam solutions more important that every before.
SpamTitan is already extensively used by businesses in TitanHQ’s home country of Ireland and throughout Europe and the Americas. TitanHQ’s products are now used by more than 6,500 business customers in 129 countries around the world.
The new partnership deal will be a massive boost to the company and will see its anti-spam solutions for businesses pushed out to a wide range of organizations throughout the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, State of Qatar, State of Kuwait, Kingdom of Jordan, Kingdom of Morocco, Arab Republic of Egypt, and beyond.
As the only cybersecurity-as-a-service in-country cloud operator in the entire Middle East region, Zservices is the perfect partner to sell TitanHQ’s anti-spam solutions for businesses. Zservices partners with some of the largest telecoms companies and national service providers in the Middle East and provides a wide range of cybersecurity services to companies in the telecoms, technology, communications, education, pharmaceutical, and retail industries throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Zservices will focus on selling the SpamTitan cloud-based anti-spam service to large enterprises and government entities throughout the region.
The partnership was announced during Enterprise Ireland’s trade mission to the UAE and KSA. Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan TD, praised the new partnership deal, which highlights the great opportunities that exist for Irish companies in the Middle East.

McDonalds (Philippines) is the latest fast food chain to choose TitanHQ as its partner to protect employees from phishing attacks.
McDonalds operates more than 500 restaurants in the Philippines and all of those restaurants will now be protected with TitanHQ’s anti-spam solution, SpamTitan. Under the terms of the agreement, TitanHQ has been tasked with keeping employee inboxes free from email spam and protecting its network from other email-borne threats such as malware and ransomware.
Email spam has declined in recent years following the take down of large botnets by international task forces, yet the threat from phishing has never been greater. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) has recently released a report that shows phishing attacks in 2016 have spiked. In the first quarter of the year, APWG reported there were more phishing attacks “than at any other time in history”.
Phishing attacks have also become far more sophisticated, making it harder for employees to identify phishing emails. Unfortunately, all it takes is for one employee to fall for a single phishing email for a network to be compromised. Employing a robust and powerful anti-spam solution has never been more important.
SpamTitan was chosen to protect all McDonalds restaurants in the Philippines for the excellent level of protection offered, but also due to the simplicity of the solution. As McDonalds (Philippines) IT manager Ramon Rivera III explains, “SpamTitan’s best feature is that it simply works as promised with immediate results. The product is incredibly powerful and yet simple to manage.”
The increase in phishing attacks and the rise in the use of ransomware has prompted many fast food chains to re-evaluate their cybersecurity defenses; however, it is not only employees that need to be protected.
McDonalds has recently announced that it will also be taking action to reduce the risk to customers who connect to its in-restaurant Wi-Fi networks. In order to protect minors, McDonalds will be implementing a web filtering solution to prevent users of its restaurant Wi-Fi networks from accessing pornography. All McDonalds restaurants are to be protected by a web filtering solution which will prevent inappropriate web content from being accessed by any of its customers.
McDonalds is setting an example which other fast food chains are following. After the decision to start offering family-friendly Wi-Fi was announced by McDonalds, Starbucks followed suit. The coffee shop chain is currently looking for a web filtering solution to ensure its coffee shop Wi-Fi networks are 100% family friendly.
The HostingCon Global 2016 Conference is the global event for the cloud and service provider ecosystem, and is the only conference in North America geared exclusively for the hosting and cloud community.
The conference offers the opportunity to find out more about the latest industry news, innovations, and technology serving the hosting and cloud community. The HostingCon Global 2016 Conference is a must-visit event for hosting and cloud providers, MSPs, ISVs, VARs, and value-added service providers.
We are delighted to announce that TitanHQ’s MSP Program Manager, Eric Simpson, will be attending this year’s conference on July 24, 2016 and will be meeting with MSPs and potential partners interested in adding TitanHQ’s WebTitan web filtering solution to their service offerings.
TitanHQ developed WebTitan to be an easy to implement and cost-effective web filtering solution for small to medium sized enterprises. The 100% cloud-based solution is ideal for MSPs who want to start offering a web filtering service to their clients.
WebTitan offers a number of advantages for MSPs, including a recurring revenue model, short sales cycle, generous margins, and minimal IT service and management overhead.
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

Each year, the Information Technology Association of Galway (ITAG) hosts a glittering awards ceremony to celebrate local companies that have made exceptional contributions in the field of Information Technology.
Each year a host of companies are assessed for their contributions and achievements over the course of the year. The main aim of the award program is to encourage, promote, and strengthen the Information technology industry in the west of Ireland and to encourage growth in the IT sector. The ITAG award program is now in its 14th year and has helped to raise awareness of the efforts of West of Ireland companies and to promote the sterling work of Galway-based technology companies.
The highly coveted ITAG Awards are issued for excellence and help to promote new talent, recognize the potential in start-up organizations, celebrate IT in the community, and special achievements by individuals working in the IT sector.
The effort and commitment of the TitanHQ team was recognised this year, with the company receiving the 2016 Enterprise Award for excellence and for TitanHQ’s outstanding contribution as product innovators.
The awards panel rated TitanHQ as a center of technical excellence, a driver of regional economic growth, and for the company’s contributions in Galway and around the world.
The ITAG award is the latest in a string of awards bestowed upon the TitanHQ in recent months, adding to the SC (Secure Computing) magazine award, a Red Herring award, three consecutive awards from Virus Bulletin, and CRN’s (Computer Reseller News) Coolest Vendor.
At the awards ceremony Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of TitanHQ thanked the TitanHQ team and said “This recognition from ITAG combined with our recent awards is a wonderful acknowledgment of how our security solutions are resonating with businesses today.”

Mocha Beans, the Galway-based coffee shop chain, has recently implemented TitanHQs WebTitan Cloud for Wi-Fi and has become the first chain of coffee shops in the Republic of Ireland to be accredited under the Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme.
The Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme was created in the UK in 2014 in collaboration with the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and the Registered Digital Institute. The Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme is the world’s first public Wi-Fi accreditation scheme, and was developed to ensure that public Wi-Fi networks can be used by children and young people without them being placed at risk of accessing inappropriate website content such as pornography, child abuse imagery, videos, and websites.
The Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme was developed after concern was raised by children’s charities that minors could be easily subjected to inappropriate website content while accessing public Wi-Fi networks.
Any establishment displaying the Friendly Wi-Fi symbol has had its Wi-Fi network checked and verified by an independent body to ensure that content filters have been applied that block inappropriate material.
TitanHQ is a Proud Supporter of the Friendly Wi-Fi Scheme
TitanHQ is a proud supporter of the friendly Wi-Fi scheme. By using WebTitan Cloud for WiFi, operators of Wi-Fi hotspots can carefully control the website content that can be accessed by customers. WebTitan Cloud for Wi-Fi can be configured to block adult content such as pornographic images, videos, and websites, and prevents Wi-Fi users from accessing any of the sites contained in the Internet Watch Foundation’s URL blacklist.
Not only does WebTitan Cloud for Wi-Fi prevent the accessing of inappropriate and illegal website content, the web filtering solution also blocks phishing websites and malware to ensure the Internet can be accessed securely and safely by all users.
Mocha Beans recently chose TitanHQ to provide its customers with clean and safe internet access. According to Cathal Keogh, MD of Mocha Beans, “Providing guest Wi-Fi in a coffee shop or restaurant is now expected. It was important for us to ensure we did everything possible to protect guests while using our free Wi-Fi service.”
In the words of Ronan Kavanagh, CEO at TitanHQ, “Today’s businesses know that security threats are evolving rapidly and constantly. For those offering public Wi-Fi, WebTitan for Wi-Fi allows them to deliver secure browsing via the cloud on any device, anytime.”

SpamTitan Technologies came in at number 123 for Q2 up from number 393 in the previous quarter. “We recognise the importance of being included on such a significant industry list as the Cybersecurity 500. At SpamTitan, our staff are assisting our customers on a daily basis in dealing with the constant threat of cyber attack, and this is now as important for the smaller businesses as it is for the fortune 500 company. We are delighted to be working with Cybersecurity 500 in highlighting the need for vigilance and raising awareness for all businesses.”” says Ronan Kavanagh, CEO, SpamTitan Technologies.
So far, only four companies on the list come from Ireland; email and web security vendor SpamTitan Technologies headquartered in Galway, Netfort, VigiTrust and PixAlert. The list is based on the recommendations of a range of experts including CISOs, VCs, security professionals rather than simply reflecting size and revenue. According to Steve Morgan, founder and CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures. “We do not think a list of the largest cybersecurity companies is useful to our target audience of cyber and IT security decision makers, evaluators, and recommenders”. “They already know who the biggest vendors are. Instead, we give a nod to the hottest and most innovative companies” says Morgan.

Boston, MA and Galway, Ireland – March 1st 2011 – SpamTitan Technologies, the makers of the powerful yet easy-to-manage web filtering solution WebTitan, today presented its Social Media Cost Calculator . The new tool becomes available as SpamTitan releases the results of its latest customer research which shows that 76 per cent of customers feel under pressure to allow access to more Web 2.0 tools in the workplace.
The WebTitan social media cost calculator is a tool to help Human Resource (HR) professionals better understand the cost implications of social networking in the office, allowing them to approximate an annual cost of this activity to the business based on average salary. The Social Media Cost Calculator can be used by HR or IT to assist in creating a business case for expenditure on productivity measures such as web filtering tools, based on potential savings.
The true cost of social networking in the office is of real concern to businesses. A 2010 survey of 1000 employees by MyJobGroup found that among those who use sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Myspace at work, one-third are spending more than 30 minutes a day and almost 6 per cent spend more than an hour. Such potential for lost productivity has major cost implications, especially for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A simple, straight forward way to calculate the cost could make all the difference to employers’ efforts at staying in control.
“The need for businesses to ensure social networking activity in the workplace is responsible and productive is fast becoming a major HR issue,” said SpamTitan Technologies’ CEO Ronan Kavanagh. “Our Social Media Cost Calculator is one way for IT to give visibility and in turn help HR exercise more control over the proper use of Web 2.0 so that these tools can safely play their part in bringing benefits to the business.
Social media has become part of everyday life with nearly a billion people worldwide using some type of social networking site. According to the WebTitan Social Media Cost Calculator, if every employee spent just 20 minutes a day on non-work related social media activity it would cost a company with 100 employees on an average salary of $25k more than $50,000 a year. With this visibility comes a greater understanding which can be immensely helpful in allowing HR, management and I.T. to control how social media is used in the workplace.
‘Having clear visibility of internet usage across the organisation has been an invaluable aid to determining our internet usage policy,” said Tony Dervan, HR Manager, EssentialSkillz. “Some of our employees need access to social networking as part of their job but many do not. Using the social media cost calculator has allowed us to manage internet productivity much more accurately.”
It is important that you choose the web filtering solution that is right for your organisation’s needs,” said Ronan Kavanagh. “By working with IT, HR can help guide the company to safe internet use that is controlled but not blanket banned and where the organisation can safely embrace and reap the benefits of business Web 2.0 tools.”
