Managed Email Threat Protection Overview
Restoring Confidence in Email
Managed Email Threat Protection
- Protection against spam, viruses and phishing exploits outside the corporate network.
- Block email-borne malware outside of the corporate network.
- Provide stronger inbox control by blending content and non-content based techniques to achieve more effective blocking and fewer false positives.
- Avoid unsolicited offensive material that could be perceived as creating a hostile work environment. Avoid the maintenance and management required for on-site hardware and software solutions.
- Completely eliminate foreign language spam that often bypasses traditional defenses.
- Secure the local email server by eliminating multiple access points (through a rule that forces all incoming mail through the managed service for filtering).
Outbound Email Auditing
- Detection of open relays, zombie PCs, and outbound viruses.
- Protect your reputation with a safeguard that prevents users from inadvertently sending spam and viruses to your customers, suppliers and partners.
- Avoid the blacklisting of your production static IP addresses, and the business disruption that this entails.
- Identify possible compromised PCs that can lead to the leak of sensitive corporate information.
Email / Business Continuity
- Auto-queuing of inbound email in case the local mail server fails or the power goes out.
- Incoming email is not bounced or lost when your local email server is down for any reason.
- Local email problems are invisible to external senders, because non-delivery receipts are not sent.
- Delivery of incoming mail resumes as soon as the local email server returns to operation.
- Block email sent to unknown users before it reaches your corporate infrastructure.
- Neutralize volume-based directory harvesting and denial of service attacks.
- Save the bandwidth otherwise consumed by spam and messages to unknown users.
- Avoid the need for hardware (hard drive, memory, CPU) upgrades to critical infrastructure components by reducing the volume of email processed per day.
Enhancements to the overall email experience
- Use of purpose-specific addresses as tags to organize and track email communication.
- Use Protective Addresses to organize email, for example, for all correspondence related to a particular customer or project, or for responses to a marketing campaign.
- Provide users with concrete, proactive tools to protect the integrity of their primary email address.
