4-page Case Study posted: 04/02/2012

Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC) wanted its web presence to be as dynamic and interesting as its programs.

With its new member portal, BGCC is able to communicate with clubs much more effectively and keep them informed and excited about BGCC programs. The nonprofit has also trimmed administrative costs by US$30,000 annually, now that donations are processed electronically.

University Saves $200,000 Plus 95 Hours a Week with Centralized Malware Detection
4-page Case Study posted: 05/17/2011

The IT department at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has 12,000 client PCs to manage and secure. Invasive malware was a constant threat to hospital data and employee productivity, and the IT department spent roughly 30 hours a day removing malicious software. MUSC then used its Microsoft Enterprise Client Access License to acquire Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010. With this new tool, the IT staff can respond proactively to malware threats and is saving 95 hours a week in malware removal time, a productivity savings worth approximately U.S.$60,000 per year. MUSC was also able to eliminate its previous antivirus program that cost $150,000, and avoid the $100,000 cost of acquiring comprehensive malware detection software. Best of all, MUSC now has the data it needs to make its environment more secure, so it can keep PCs running and patient data safe.
