The challenge: migrate to a scalable and a cost-effective email
DuoCircle was challenged with migrating Dyn’s legacy email infrastructure to provide simpler and easy to use configuration files, reducing hardware hosting costs and ensuring better customer satisfaction.
Brad Slavin, CEO, DuoCircle describes, “We wanted to migrate our spam filter from Spam Assassin to ASSP. We were using 70 Amazon instances and the server hosting bill was well over $20K/month. In addition, we were experiencing difficulties in delivering emails to customers. Even though we are a Linux and FreeBSD based shop we were open to evaluating a commercial email platform that was scalable, cost effective and would enable us to continue as a service provider to our customers.”
“We researched many email security and delivery platforms against our requirements including Cyren software and over 20 of their partners.” Slavin explained. “We conducted a proof of concept with Halon and selected it based on the attractive licensing model, excellent support, easy upgrade path, reliable and scalable architecture that eliminated inconsistencies, key features such as quarantine, end user logging for customers, message replay and for enabling DuoCircle to continue as a service provider.”
