Email Spam Protection

We keep email borne threats and viruses out of your inbox with industry leading anti-virus

In the early days of email, spam was just annoying. Now, it’s dangerous for both inbound and outbound email messages. 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.

Security Solutions to Inbound Spam

Our email anti-virus software will help improve your business internet security by blocking known threats before they enter your companies domain email. Unlike other email programs that usually use one vendor to help fight spam, our email system utilizes a multi-layer email spam filter from 4 channel partners to help block unwanted messages from reaching your inbox. Personalized spam is becoming a larger problem as cyber criminals send spam and phishing emails with increasingly greater sophistication. A simple spam blocker is no longer sufficient to stop the spam of current email traffic. This is why you need an advanced, 4 layer, machine learning solution to filter incoming email with accuracy that keeps getting better without needing software installed.

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

Each inbound email passes 4 scans
