Italy's SEP banks on Critical Path for secure messaging

18 July 2002  |  2254 views  |  0 Italy's SEP banks on Critical Path for secure messaging

SEP Servizi e Progetti, a subsidiary of the San Paolo IMI Bank of Turin, has deployed Critical Path's messaging server, combined with partner products, to provide e-mail, fax, anti-virus and anti-spam services to 24,000 employees.

As a result of numerous mergers and acquisitions over the past several years, Gruppo Bancario San Paolo IMI has turned its SEP subsidiary into an internal application service provider for enterprise-wide messaging.

Since January, the unit has migrated employees throughout the group of banks to Critical Path's secure messaging solution. In a secondary phase, SEP plans to provide services to the group's internal and external corporate partners.

Giorgio Bertazzo, chief executive of SEP, says: "Critical Path's solution stood out because it offered the lowest TCO, proven references and excellent support provided by its professional services group."

The CP Messaging Server is a component of the standards-based Critical Path Communications Platform, which enables a broad range of integrated communications services that can be accessed via any device, whether desktop, phone, PDA or laptop over wireless, broadband or dial up connections.

SEP's fax solution - available from Critical Path technology partner Mediagate - enables end-users to send, receive and file faxes through their e-mail box.

Protection against unsolicited e-mails and viruses is provided by Brightmail, another Critical Path technology partner, using a server-based filtering system and 24-hour continuous Internet network monitoring.

During the current quarter SEP has also purchased CP Calendar Server, which it plans to integrate as an additional service.
