Spam protection

Stop email threats with better spam protection.

Stop email threats with better spam protection.

Spam protection is an essential part of managing business email. With the volume of spam continuing to rise, a spam detection tool can help to increase user productivity by eliminating unwanted messages and improve system performance by keeping unnecessary traffic off email servers.

But a superior spam email protection solution should provide even greater security. 1More than 90% of security attacks today begin with an email-borne threat like phishing or spear-phishing. To mitigate these risks and protect your organization from the cost and disruption of a targeted email attack, you need spam protection that can recognize and stop messages containing malicious links, weaponized attachments and social engineering techniques commonly used to trick users.

Mimecast Secure Email Gateway provides leading spam protection as well as defenses against the latest and most dangerous types of targeted threats.
