Flexible Email Security System to Defend Against Spam and Malicious Content
Email is a Mission Critical Business Application In today’s networks, email is one of the most predominant business communication methods. Unfortunately, email has also become one of the most common vehicles for proliferating blended threats comprised of viruses, worms, spyware and spam. These blended attacks can negatively impact business productivity, cause business downtime and lead to identity theft. In response, companies have leveraged point product security technologies, such as antispam, to patch against single threaded attacks. In addition, legislation has been introduced to ensure that companies comply with security best practices for email archiving that enable forensic and legal audits. Email is a mission critical application for all businesses that must be secured.
