Intermedia Hosted Exchange with Proofpoint

Intermedia Hosted Exchange with Proofpoint – The most advanced email security package.

As a Global Distributor of Proofpoint Essentials, Spambrella is uniquely positioned to support partners and customers that rely on Intermedia hosted exchange services with Proofpoint Essentials email security. Intermedia customers can now upgrade to the most advanced email security service available Worldwide – via Spambrella!

Intermedia SpamStopper Email Filtering (Intermedia’s homegrown email security solution)

Following the Intel Security announcement to end of life the McAfee SaaS Email Protection & Continuity, Intel Security has formally advised partners and customers migrate to Proofpoint, Inc (Gartner leader for Secure Email Gateways). Instead of transitioning existing McAfee customers to Proofpoint, Intermedia has made the decision to invest in enhancing their own SpamStopper service as the standard email security service for all Intermedia Customers.

Intermedia relied heavily on MX Logic/McAfee SaaS Email Protection and have provided support for the service leveraging port 25 by default for all customers using their hosted email service. Many of these customers have now migrated back to the Intermedia SpamStopper service and would prefer to use an alternative proven provider such as Proofpoint.

Intermedia with Proofpoint (the problem)

Intermedia provided McAfee SaaS Email Protection & Continuity (MX Logic) on port 25 as the default spam filtering solution for all hosted exchange customers, but offers port 2501 as an alternative port for delivery. Proofpoint Essentials only connects to port 25 and therefore this presents inherent double scanning issues when trying to connect to Intermedia.

When attempting to run Proofpoint with Intermedia on port 25, all email will be delivered correctly but; all mail will be scanned first by Proofpoint and then again by McAfee SaaS, which causes ALL email received by the user to be delivered the ‘Junk’ mailbox. With the degraded performance of the McAfee service, many customers do not want to have their mail filtered by both solutions and would prefer to leverage Proofpoint as a standalone email security solution as an alternative to Intermedia SpamStopper.

Intermedia with Proofpoint (the solution)

Spambrella have developed a proprietary Intermedia-Proofpoint connector service which is successfully used by a number of Intermedia MSP partners and customers. The Spambrella solution enables Intermedia hosted exchange customers to utilize Proofpoint on the Intermedia alternative delivery port, 2501.

Our connecter for Intermedia partners and customers is not available through Proofpoint directly or any other partner and can only be ordered via Spambrella.

This unique solution for Intermedia customers is secure, reliable and allows current Intermedia customers to take advantage of the industry leading Proofpoint Essentials architecture and protection.

Having moved away from McAfee, we quickly realised our customers had not settled. We decided to set up an open webinar with all customers and Spambrella. Over 80% of our customers opted to move and a positive decision it was!
The Spambrella team have been excellent. I highly recommend their services and technical expertise.

Harry Miller, Trafic Corp

With over 4k end user email users it was top priority that our migration was stable and quick. Spambrella proved to be the perfect choice with hands on technical assistance. We worked late nights migrating our customers from another email security vendor that increased their pricing without prior warning. We are very happy with Spambrella and will continue to recommend this service.

Steven Sumir, Hotel Cocoa

Spambrella has been a valued service addition to RCS London. Our clients are very happy with the security features Spambrella provides and the user interaction with the service has been simple and welcomed by all. RCS is a fast growth MSP in London UK and the business requires valuable additions like Spambrella. We recommend Spambrella to other MSP’s looking for a monthly subscription email security service.

Eimis Svabas, Monotype Imaging Inc.

As an MSP Kingdom provides best of breed packaged services to its clients. Spambrella was brought in to replace both our premium and SMB email security/filter options. Spambrella is quick and simple to set up and administer. The Proofpoint connection is valuable and enables us to quickly deploy policy based encryption which is becoming popular. Overall we cannot fault Spambrella as a service or as a team.

Tina McDonaldson, Kingdom Services

Spambrella rescued us and our customers from uncertain times with Postini/Google and now McAfee. As an MSP we have relied upon Spambrella and their support for just over 2 years. Our experience has been positive and we have overcome obstacles using their support team for anything email related (sometimes out of their scope). We recommend Spambrella to all of our customers. Thanks!
