Venture Technologies Uses Vade to Protect 20K Email Users

Vade, the global leader in predictive email defense, announced that Venture Technologies, Inc. is deploying Vade to 20,000 users of its VTCloud® Hosted Email service. The IT solution provider is replacing Barracuda Spam Firewall with Vade AI-based email security solution to strengthen protection against zero-day threats, including phishing and malware attacks.

Venture Technologies offers a variety of managed services hosted in three data centers across the United States, including the Microsoft Exchange-based  VTCloud® Hosted Email service. The company had been using Barracuda’s on-premises anti-spam software, but began searching for a cloud-based alternative because the product wasn’t effective at detecting new zero-day threats.

Venture Technologies selected Vade after a proof of concept demonstrated the solution’s superior catch rate. Over a two-week period, Vade blocked 1,400 emails from 300 pilot accounts that had bypassed Barracuda. These emails ranged from basic spam to advanced phishing and malware attacks. In addition, Vade graymail management capabilities proved highly effective at classifying low-priority emails, such as newsletters, notifications and marketing messages. Lastly, Vade architectural flexibility would allow Venture Technologies to deploy a cloud-based email security solution without disrupting existing processes for encrypting outbound emails using Zix.

“Adopting Vade allows us to evolve from offering basic anti-spam to a more comprehensive security solution that protects our clients from the latest phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks,” said John Little, EVP, Cloud & Enterprise Solutions, Venture Technologies. “Vade cloud-based solution was very easy to deploy and our users are experiencing an immediate reduction in email threats, as well as low-priority messages.”

Vade predictive email defense solutions leverage smart patterns and artificial intelligence to block unknown, highly targeted attacks–including phishing, spear phishing, malware and ransomware–from the first email.
