BitDam Defends Graham’s The Family Dairy Against Malware
December 2019 by Marc Jacob
BitDam, provider of cybersecurity solutions that protect enterprise communications from advanced threats hidden in files and links, today announced its BitDam Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution is now rolled-out at Graham’s The Family Dairy, Scotland’s largest independent dairy, in an effort to cost-effectively enhance the company’s cyber security posture covering both O365 email and OneDrive.
In phishing attacks, hackers can exploit employee credentials and send malware from their mailboxes. Graham’s engaged with BitDam in an effort to enhance the security of the organization’s collaboration platforms including O365 email and OneDrive. After a short trial period, BitDam was installed as an advanced security layer on top of the other security platforms that Grahams already had in place.
“We have been evaluating ways to reinforce our cyber security posture for some time. We knew our collaboration platforms were providing the entry points for malware, ransomware and phishing scams and we wanted to shore up those weak spots,” said Daniel Baird, Group Head of IT, Graham’s The Family Dairy. “We were drawn to BitDam’s unique approach, as it differed from other solutions we investigated that are heuristic-based.”
BitDam’s cloud-based solution proactively detects and blocks known and unknown content-borne attacks, pre-delivery. Its unique attack-agnostic technology increases detection rates by up to ten times compared with other solutions in the market. It integrates with leading email platforms including Microsoft Office 365, Google G-Suite and all web-based emails and cloud drives.
“We are glad to have Graham’s, which is known for taking a proactive approach in IT management, as a customer. Graham’s knew all too well that email gateway solutions detect known malware, but unknown threats still gets through. BitDam does the heavy lifting, blocking attacks- even the first time they are seen in the wild,” said Liron Barak, CEO and Co-founder, BitDam. “We are so pleased to be defending the cyber security of Scotland’s largest independent dairy celebrating its 80th year in business.”
