Anti spam and anti virus email filtering solutions are one of the best ways to reduce your business´s exposure to threats such as phishing, malware and ransomware. Even if you have implemented web filtering, anti virus software and network monitoring tools, anti spam and anti virus email filtering solutions can stop the threats at source and prevent them from entering your network.
Advanced anti spam and anti virus email filtering solutions achieve spam detection rates in excess of 99.9% and identify 100% of inbound malware. The solutions can also be used to scan outbound emails in order to keep your IP reputation healthy and avoid your IP address being blacklisted by a global block list agency – which could also have consequences for accessibility to your web site(s).
How Advanced Anti Spam and Anti Virus Solutions Work
Advanced anti spam and anti virus solutions use additional mechanisms to those you will find in a “standard” email filtering solution in order to accurately and efficiently detect threats. Whereas a standard email filtering solution will include features such as a real-time block lists, Sender Policy Frameworks and Recipient Verification Protocols, plus tools allowing you to set your own acceptable spam thresholds, an advanced anti spam and anti virus solution includes:
Greylisting is a process in which all incoming emails are returned to their originating mail servers with a request for the email to be resent. Typically this process delays the receipt of emails by a minute or two; but, due to spammers´ mail servers being too busy to respond to the request, spam emails are never returned at all.
When a greylisted email has been returned, it goes through a series of secondary processes. One of these processes – SUBRL filtering – checks any URLs contained within the body of the email to ensure they do not appear on a list of URLs registered in previous spam emails. This process significantly reduces the likelihood an employee will fall victim to a phishing attack.
Double Anti Virus Software
Double anti virus software does not mean double the protection, but provided the dual anti virus engines are complimentary (i.e. not both proprietary software), you will get a higher malware detection rate than just using a single defense. Advanced anti spam and anti virus solutions typically use proprietary software and open source software in unison.
Getting Advanced Protect does not Require Advanced Skills
In most cases, implementing an advanced anti spam and anti virus solution does not mean you need to acquire an advanced skill set. Most vendors understand businesses want set and forget online security solutions, and make the configuration and management of their anti spam and anti virus email filtering solutions as straightforward as possible.
Furthermore, the trend in recent years has been to move away from high maintenance solutions that protect each device individually. The majority of advanced anti spam and anti virus email filtering solutions are administered from a centralized web-based portal through which the filtering parameters can be synchronized with directory tools in order to set flexible user policies.
