London Olympics training camp tackles spam surge

Antony Savvas

London 2012 Olympics training camp Brunel University has put in place a new e-mail security system to tackle an alarming rise in spam.

Over the past last years, spam levels have risen from 30,000 spam messages a day to up to four million at peak times.

Brunel has turned to Secure Computing's Secure Mail platform to defend itself against all inbound, outbound and Web 2.0 malicious messaging attacks.

The system is being used to protect students, researchers and teaching staff from spam.

Brunel said Secure Mail is rising to the challenge of filtering legitimate Olympic and sports-related messages on the campus network from malicious spam attacks, which now account for 99% of all campus e-mails.
