“Trussbilt decided to purchase GFI products because they are designed with
the SMB in mind and the features offered an excellent fit for the company.
With GFI software installed, the company was able to ensure that email
received was free of spam and viruses while giving IT administrators full
control over the use of the Internet within the organization; thereby cutting
down on unnecessary, non work-related Internet browsing and greatly
reducing the risk that inappropriate content could be viewed on company
machines. The growing threat from infected websites and malicious
downloads was also a concern, especially for an organization working in the
security business.”
– Mark Harvey, Trussbilt
“GFI gave us the feature set that we were looking for at the greatest value
by far. It is a cost-effective solution and it has saved us operational time.”
– Mr. Laskowski, Aegisoft
