BitDam Seamless Deployment: Easy & Fast

Deploying an email content security solution is complex and may lead to email outages and traffic delays.

Changing the MX record can be complicated if there are multiple domains in the organisation and even for a single domain, it takes times until changes are propagated, causing temporary fluctuations in email service levels (SLAs), as emails are directed to both the old and new gateways.

Beyond deployment, changing the MX record has additional service implications. When changing the MX record so that your SEG will receive all the emails before O365 can harm your organisation’s security, by causing traffic to bypass O365 filters and associated security filters.The MTA-based solution (eg. Proofpoint) routes all emails to O365, and recognises the sender as an approved Proofpoint, and thus can’t detect spoofing by black-listing the server.

Similarly, outages can occur if there are failures in the gateway software, jeopardising email traffic delivery, causing delays or even dropped emails. The BitDam Cloud is an advanced content security software-as-a service (SaaS). It is not inline with an organisation’s traffic and has no effect on email service levels.

In addition, Bitdam on boarding and deployment is fast and seamless. By utilising email API’s, BitDam requires no changes to the MX record.The architecture is multi-tenant (by default) or single-tenant, and exist in 2 major locations in the US and EU. Each location has a replication for high availability, as well as protections against DDOS.
