Healthcare organizations have become a prime target for email security threats. This growing, community-based organization was having challenges with malware, malicious URLs, and spam in its email. CoxHealth sought to:

  • Protect employees and patients against ransomware and other email threats
  • Decrease spam to boost employee and network productivity
  • Reduce workload required for management, maintenance, and upgrades
