  • We were able to drop our email scanning software that was taking hours to clear the cache of emails daily. The reduction in delays on email scanning improved our efficiency as emails take seconds to minutes to get to where they are going not hours.
  • Encrypted email service (Cypher-Post) is difficult to use as well as our recipients do not like how difficult it is to use. The stub emails that contain links often get deleted because people are trained not to click on links in emails. This has caused substantial delays in people getting emails from us.

Weak Spam Filtering

  • Emails got through that were blatantly scams if you looked at the headers, but the content was believable and we had users who believed and we lost thousands of dollars due to a scam. It really should've blocked the addresses they were coming from, but it didn't.

Return on Investment

  • AppRiver has reduced the time we spend on addressing spam and email borne viruses by at least 95%. Back in the early/mid 2000's, we spent hours a week dealing w/ spam, now its a few minutes a month, mostly approving whitelist requests and helping clients w/ misunderstandings about why something was blocked by the spam filter.
  • We make decent margins on Office 365 and the provisioning time has been easily cut by two thirds for new clients.
  • Probably the largest impact is the lack of time we spend managing the solution. When managing your own spam filter, it needs care and feeding. With AppRiver, once you get someone signed up, you don't have to manage the tool.
