OSS Health has 6 locations and 550 employees to manage. From a security and compliance perspective this can be challenging. Spam was a constant inconvenience for employees when inboxes were receiving messages that shouldn’t have passed through the existing filter. Protecting the network is a constant priority and the existing spam filter was creating vulnerabilities.


OSS implemented the Barracuda Spam Filter which has been very powerful. It blocks what is necessary without falsely restricting and without creating productivity concerns. The Barracuda Spam Filter created such a level of comfort and ease of use that OSS also ended up implementing the Barracuda Web Filter which has provided a peace of mind for OSS as it’s scanning most of the traffic before it even hits the network, it’s become OSS’s first line of defense. In addition, OSS had identified a need, for legal reasons, to be able to retrieve email communication while reducing storage requirements. For this reason, they leaned on the Barracuda Message Archiver which has worked out really well for eDiscovery and compliance.
