  • SC4’s e-mail server was flooded with a million spam messages a month, accounting for 20 percent of all e-mail traffic. IT leaders wanted to cut that to 2 percent.
  • The Cisco IronPort C160 all-in-one security appliance protects against spam and viruses and prevents data loss. With help from CDW and Cisco Systems, SC4’s IT team had the solution up and running in three weeks.
  • Network administrators used to receive eight to nine user requests per day to block spam content. Thanks to the Cisco IronPort, that number has dropped to one to two per week. 
Participants: Dave Buck, Mike Wilber, Bob Irving and Mike Condino — all of St. Clair County Community College.
