What is email spam filtering?
Email spam filtering protects email and employees from spam that can deliver malware, zero-day attacks and other advanced threats, and spread throughout the enterprise. Incorporating an email spam filter not only helps to protect against advanced cyberattacks, but will prevent inboxes from filling up with unproductive junk mail.
Introducing Mimecast Email Security, Cloud Integrated
Enterprise level email security optimized for organizations without complex enterprise tech stacks.
How do spam filters work?
Spam filters block spam – Mimecast’s email spam filter SLA stops 99% of spam with 0.0001% false positives. Spam filters also stop malware and viruses that can be delivered via spam, thereby minimizing disruption to the enterprise.
What do spam filters look for?
To be truly effective, spam filters must scan every incoming email in real time and block many forms of malware such as suspicious URLs, suspicious attachments, and social engineering attacks such as phishing.
Why is spam filtering important?
Email spam is one of the oldest and most prevalent methods of attack against organizations. Cybercriminals can deliver spam quickly and inexpensively at huge volumes, making it difficult to block without spam filtering. And since spam can deliver malicious activity like zero-day attacks, phishing, and malware, it’s critical to use spam filtering to protect organizations.
Stop email-borne threats with an email spam filter
An exceptional email spam filter is a must for IT security today. Email spam continues to be a significant threat to productivity, performance, and security. Spam lowers productivity by clogging employee mailboxes, impacts network performance by consuming bandwidth, and increases the cost of your mail management system.
But the most dangerous threat that spam poses is in its content. Ninety-one percent of hacking attacks today begin phishing or spear-phishing – email-borne threats that are wreaking havoc with corporate security around the world.
