As host to one of golf’s most prestigious tournaments, the 2006 Ryder Cup Matches, the K Club is widely regarded as Ireland’s premier 5 Red Star Hotel and Golf Club.  Set amongst 550 acres of County Kildare countryside by the river Liffey, this elegantly restored country house was opened in 1991 as a luxurious hotel and golf club and now offers clients the highest standards of comfort, service and cuisine.

Even the prestigious KClub was not immune from receiving hundreds of unsolicited email communications each week.  With approximately 100 users of email, the problem was significant.   SPAM and non business related emails were not only taking up valuable space on email servers and creating network bottlenecks but were resulting in hours of lost productivity for users, having to spend significant time deleting and filtering them from the system.  With The K Club’s commitment to excellence in customer service, it was clear to IT Manager, Ronan McCabe that something would have to be done to tackle the problem.

After consulting with MJ Flood Technology – a supplier of networking infrastructure, consultancy and professional services to small and medium-sized enterprises.  Surfcontrol was deployed – a total filtering solution which protects against Internet content risk associated with web, email, instant messaging and malicious mobile code.  MJ Flood Technology Elminates Spam for KClub
