Niger’s leading banking group Sonibank chooses Sonema’s managed service Mail Protection to protect their email systems.
The Mail Protection service deployed for Sonibank protects the company’s email service from mail-based threats including spam, ransomware and zero-day type viruses with no known signature. A fully managed service, Mail Protection expertly protects the customer from increasingly-sophisticated cyber attacks and malicious software.
Harouna Maiga Boubakar, CEO of Sonibank elaborates: « Email has become the key medium for cybercriminals. 91% of cyberattacks start with an email. Standard desktop tools are no longer sufficient to fight attacks. Our staff were strongly inconvenienced by the amount of spam and our server performance had deteriorated so we wanted to protect ourselves against the risk of cyber attacks. Sonema suggested that we test their Mail Protection service for a 30-day trial period. In view of the results achieved at the end of the trial period, we  were convinced by the relevance of this service and decided to deploy it permanently.»
During the 30-day trial period Mail Protection enabled Sonibank to eliminate spam email which represented 15% of incoming email, and more importantly to block around 10 viruses with no signature thanks to a virus behavioural analysis.
Catherine Delom, Managing Director of Sonema added: « For over 10 years, we have developed a relationship of trust with the Sonibank team while operating and supervising their WAN access which connects the headquarters to the agencies in Niger in addition to the subsidiaries in Benin. Thanks to this relationship, we were able to offer a solution to address a key issue faced by the Sonibank team. We are delighted that they have chosen to use our Mail Protection service as we have made security a priority for our customers.
