March of Dimes Entrusts Email Security to FrontBridge Technologies

Email Security Service Reduces Inbound Spam and Viruses to Zero

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 31, 2005 -- FrontBridge Technologies, a leading provider of Total Message Management services, today announced the successful deployment of its award-winning Email Security Suite at the March of Dimes. The March of Dimes relies on email as its most critical communications tool to coordinate volunteer programs and keep its 1,500 employees in touch across 250 offices. The FrontBridge Email Security Suite includes fully managed, perimeter-based services for spam filtering, transport layer encryption, virus scanning, content and policy enforcement and disaster recovery.

The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality. Founded in 1938, the March of Dimes funds research, community service, education and advocacy programs to save babies and in 2003 launched a multi-year campaign to address the increasing rate of premature birth.

Before implementing a spam filtering service, many of the March of Dimes employees received in excess of 50 spam messages a day. March of Dimes turned to FrontBridge and immediately saw spam disappear. Moreover, FrontBridge ensured that every email reached its intended destination. Even when the email system was offline for maintenance, the FrontBridge Email Security service safely queued emails, delivering them to the intended recipients once the primary email system was brought online.

"In a year of use, the FrontBridge services have proven to be extremely solid. Spam messages have simply vanished," said Alan Kauffman, vice president and CIO at the March of Dimes. "Not to mention, we rest assured knowing that we will have uninterrupted email continuity in the event that our email goes down."

Implementation of the FrontBridge service required a simple mail server redirection and yielded immediate results. No on-premise equipment needed to be installed and users saw rapid benefits.

"Complaint calls to IT have been virtually eliminated with regards to spam," raved Kauffman. "Our spam problem was solved, quickly and efficiently, giving me more time to focus on adding value to our IT infrastructure."
