What is Email Protection and Filtering?
Spam email is the scourge of the internet and a chronic drain on productivity. In fact, according to a recent report by the Message, Mobile & Malware Anti-Abuse Working Group shows the spam is a growing problem, and that up to 90% of all incoming communications are unsolicited. Spam also clogs your internet connection and puts extra processing load on your server, which compounds the problem by slowing things down further. Most malware attacks today occur through a combination of spam and compromised web pages. Interacting with spam can put your personal information at risk as well as download a virus to your machine that may spread to other computers on the network.
On top of wasted time and lost productivity, viruses and other malware can spread through spam emails. Spam-borne malware is often coupled with ‘phishing’ attacks that seek to steal critical business information such as internet banking credentials. Spam filtering is a moving target, when spammer techniques change the filtering techniques must change – it’s a constant leapfrog game to stay ahead.
