"Apria has experienced tremendous growth over the past year and with that growth comes increased email use, which generated the need to strengthen our email security. Our key requirements were to block spam and unsolicited email from the messaging platform along with the ability to archive every email message transmitted, which required an AS/400-compatible solution. GROUP's solution solved all of our needs. We didn't have to mix and match products from other vendors or build our own. And, we purchased these four products at a total cost less than the price of one piece of content filtering software offered by other vendors."

“Representing the interests of private banks, the federal association of German banks, Bundesverband deutscher Banken (BdB), was founded in Cologne, Germany, in 1951. It is rooted in the tradition of the central association of the German banking industry, which existed between 1901 and 1945. The banking association represents 264 private banks, eleven associations that operate at the regional level, and special associations run by mortgage banks and shipping banks.
In order to support the process of European integration and to honour the interests of Brussels, the national associations of private banks have joined forces in the Banking Federation of the European Union. Pending decisions of the European Commission are discussed within the context of this association, after which the views of the banks are brought to the attention of the European institution responsible. One of the primary media of current and future communication among association partners, both on the national and international level, is email. Considering the often controversial nature of information exchanged this way, issues of security have automatically become of the utmost importance.
Since 1998, the products of GROUP Business Software AG have been protecting our email communication from threats of all kinds.”
