Managed Gateway Spam Eradication

 

SecureAccess Managed Gateway Spam Eradication (MGSE) Features:

  • We eliminate between 90 to 99% spam with an extremely low false positive rate (typically sub .01%).
  • Real-time inbound and outbound Gateway based spam detection and elimination. This protects your mail server from receiving, storing or the management of worthless spam emails.
  • 24x7x365 Toll-free phone and email support available from our Security Operations Center (SOC)
  • Spam management support and security incident escalation procedures that are tailored to fit your business needs.
  • New spam signatures are updated every second throughout the day to protect you against even the most recent spam.
  • Secure web-based quarantine interface to manage suspected spam with options to delete or forward messages guarantees you never lose any important messages due to false classification.
  • Flexible configuration allows you to choose whether MGSE quarantines spam messages or modifies and then forwards the email allowing your desktop mail client to filter it into a spam folder for later review.
  • Detailed quarantine activity reports available at our secure customer portal.
  • Fast Deployment due to seamless integration of the SecureAccess managed anti-spam gateway into your existing network. No changes are required to your Mail Server, Client Desktop, DNS or MX records!
  • ProtectPoint's MGSE requires very little configuration; you do not need to continually update it with details of your mail accounts, mailing list memberships, etc. It accomplishes filtering without this knowledge, as much as possible.
  • Truth Evaluation System (TeS): ProtectPoint has a transparent, back-end component known as TeS. TeS is a combination of a reputation system and pattern recognition heuristics that assigns trust to reporters and confidence values (between 0-100) to every signature. Users can set an acceptable confidence level in their ProtectPoint configuration. The server also publishes a recommended confidence level. This service has been designed to eliminate false positives of legit bulk email that were occasionally generated.
ProtectPoint uses over 250 different Baysian and Heuristic methods to ensure the email you get is not spam:
  • Wide-spectrum: ProtectPoint MGSE uses a wide variety of local and network tests to identify spam signatures. This makes it harder for spammers to identify one aspect which they can craft their messages to work around.
  • Header analysis: spammers use a number of tricks to mask their identities, to fool you into thinking they've sent a valid mail, or fool you into thinking you must have subscribed at some stage. SecureAccess spots these and eliminates spam.
  • Text analysis: again, spam mails often have a characteristic style (to put it politely), and some characteristic disclaimers and "CYA" text. SecureAccess can spot these, too and delete.
  • Blacklists: SecureAccess supports many useful existing blacklists, such as mail-abuse.org, ordb.org or others. (Some of these blacklist services are available at extra cost: see us for details)
  • Razor Database Support: Vipul's Razor is a collaborative spam-tracking database, deployed at over 200,000 sites, which works by taking a signature of spam messages. Since spam typically operates by sending an identical message to hundreds of people, Razor short-circuits this by allowing the first person to receive a spam to add it to the database -- at which point everyone else will automatically block it.
