CipherTrust was enlisted by Omaha Steaks for email security through its IronMail appliance to protect the gourmet meat company’s messaging system.

Prior to the installation of IronMail, some 75,000 incoming spam messages plagued Omaha Steaks’ 1,800 employees each day at their home office in Nebraska and other locations around the nation.

Since deployment, the spam is “virtually nonexistent” in their inboxes, according to CipherTrust, which is based in Atlanta.

“CipherTrust has proven that anti-spam, while an important feature, is just one component of a comprehensive email security solution,” said Mike Van Bruinisse, vice president of sales & business development for CipherTrust. “Today, Omaha Steaks is solving their spam problem with the best anti-spam technology available; and IronMail’s flexibility makes it possible for them to tackle other email security issues such as secure web access, encryption and virus and worm protection.”
