Email Spam Protection

We keep unwanted email, threats and viruses out of your inbox

In the early days of email, spam was just annoying. Now, it’s dangerous for both inbound and outbound email message. Email is now the most common entry point for network threats like malware, phishing attacks and ransomware. Lost productivity from checking and deleting spam and the expense of calling in the IT department to fix and recover lost data costs over $20 billion a year.

Thexyz Solution to Inbound Spam

Each inbound email passes 4 scans

The strongest threat detection structure in the industry.

We combined the best of our threat scanning capabilities with industry leaders in anti spam and virus protection. Before a message enters your mailbox, it undergoes four independent, threat blocking scans to identify spam:

Gateway - Spam Scan #1

Our team of email experts developed the Gatekeeper scan to evaluate a message’s compliance with rigorous, internationally recognized technical standards. Incoming messages to our mail servers are also checked against aggregated blacklists of known spam offenders.
