Q-Data Service delights customers with email security from the cloud
System house offers customers via distributor Fokus MSP with NoSpamProxy security and confidentiality of email communication with low administration effort and high degree of automation. Security “Made in Germany” stands for best support and reliability.
Net at Work GmbH, the manufacturer of the modular secure mail gateway solution NoSpamProxy, announces that the system house Q-DATA Service GmbH (QDS) has added the integrated e-mail security solution to its portfolio.
QDS is a competent partner in the Hamburg metropolitan region for consulting, conception and implementation of solutions and products in the areas of information and communication technology, technical solutions for offices and businesses as well as intelligent apartments and houses. For more than 40 years, the IT service provider has been serving medium-sized customers with just a handful or up to hundreds of clients.
As a supplement to Microsoft Exchange Online, QDS was looking for a cloud service for the important topic of security and confidentiality of email communication, as the on-board resources of Exchange Online are not sufficient for this purpose. In addition to defending against spam and malware, the focus was also on providing modern and practical email encryption. The new solution was to have particularly good automation options in order to keep the administration effort low – in particular, a self-learning system for allowlisting, the elimination of quarantine folders, and the automated management of certificates were desired.
Because secure email traffic is one of the business-critical applications for all QDS customers and the system house therefore wanted to guarantee the best support over a short distance, just in case, the service provider deliberately looked for a manufacturer from Germany. In addition, ‘Made in Germany’ offers the security that local regulatory requirements are reliably implemented.
After consulting with Fokus MSP, a distributor specializing in managed service providers, QDS opted for the NoSpamProxy cloud service from Net at Work. The solution convinced with the smooth operation of the platform in a German data center as well as the constant updating of the software, optimal configuration and management of the necessary certificates by the manufacturer. Of particular interest to QDS was the self-learning management of allowlists based on the dynamic level-of-trust concept of NoSpamProxy, which significantly reduces the administrative workload.
„No system house enjoys managing certificates or allowlists manually and really no one misses the quarantine folders. NoSpamProxy offers such good value for money as a cloud service that our customers don’t have to think twice about booking it. With NoSpamProxy, we can offer our customers top-notch protection without having to spin a huge wheel ourselves in terms of staff and resources.“
The metadata service 32Guards, which is part of the product, also evaluates trends across customers and provides real-time feedback on new threat patterns – with a particular focus on the relevant German-speaking region. Net at Work’s independent Open Keys service for publishing and researching keys is also one of the most comprehensive directories for the region. All of this also generates enthusiasm among QDS customers, because it makes the application a breeze. Users can work undisturbed as usual and NoSpamProxy ensures the appropriate confidentiality and security of email communication in the background. If the worst comes to the worst, the product’s support is reliably fast and good.
