Technology Challenges

Coombes Group had recently migrated their aging infrastructure to the cloud, becoming a 100% cloud-based organisation.  During this time, a few of their customers and partners had, unfortunately, been breached through sophisticated phishing attacks.  While Coombes did not experience any security breaches into their own organisation, they knew they had to be extremely vigilant with their cybersecurity because the attacks on their partners and clients left Coombe’s data and systems more exposed.

As our appointed MSP, we asked A1 what else we could to increase our security, specifically email security and how could reduce the risk of phishing attacks, which were becoming more prevalent and sophisticated

CFO, Coombes Property Group

A1 had been working with Coombes for a number of years and were familiar with their security posture, which was in an excellent position, broadly speaking.  To bolster existing email security measures,  A1 works with two industry leading vendors Barracuda and Sophos for the most comprehensive security against advanced email threats to bolster existing email security solutions.

The Solution

Coombes needed a solution that would improve email security and continually educate staff, without negatively impacting user experience. A1  deployed Barracuda Total Email Protection, multi-layered approach combines a secure email gateway and AI-powered fraud protection.  Not only did the solution fortify their email security, it also provided excellent education and notification services to the end user/staff, allowing them to increase their awareness about phishing attacks and bad actors.

In the first week, we were notified of a few fraudulent emails attempting phishing which helped the team to understand what a fraudulent email/bad actor looked like rather than the email just being filtered out or blocked
