Austrian Automobile Club (ÖAMTC) safeguards its email communication with Retarus

Austria’s largest motoring association, the ÖAMTC, has opted for Retarus’ Secure Email Platform to ensure that all the association’s data is processed in accordance with the most stringent data protection requirements, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Key factors in the club’s decision to go with Retarus included the high degree of flexibility offered by the service and the impressively professional assistance in implementing the solution. “With Retarus, the overall package was simply an excellent fit,” explains Christoph Pertl, IT Security Officer at ÖAMTC. “In addition to the technical benefits offered by the Retarus Secure Email Platform, we were also impressed that the service was provided from German data centers in accordance with strict data protection requirements.”  

The ÖAMTC uses the platform’s Essential Protection, Advanced Threat Protection and Patient Zero Detection® modules. The services have also been perfectly aligned with the club’s security requirements. For instance, Retarus was able to integrate a third-party encryption gateway which the automobile club had only recently put into operation.

To actively route its email traffic at an early stage, the ÖAMTC is additionally using Retarus Predelivery Logic. This service allows emails to be analyzed, optimized, or redirected according to predefined rulesets already at the gateway stage. The automobile club especially appreciated the opportunity to identify emails based on the message’s Geo IP. Various other value-adding use scenarios based on individually configured rulesets are already in the pipeline.
