“Bill, just to let you know that Anonymous Italy declared an attack to various public administrations including Pisa University until Nov 5 2018. We resisted the attacks mainly on our mail thanks to the email security solution we recently deployed. We had peaks of 600,000 connections/day with only 100,000 legitimate and the system resisted under pressure. We are impressed by the system performance, in the month of October we received 12million connections and just over 2million were delivered as legitimate.”

Antonio Cisternino – CIO University of Pisa, Italy
