EMAIL SECURITY AS A SERVICE

Our partner The Email Laundry has been the leading developer of new technology for the email security industry for some time. Their cloud based service is renowned for accuracy and resilience. The service is provided through a global network of data centers with strict security protocols in place for local data protection laws.

In its pre-DATA filtering, The Email Laundry blocks more spam than several solutions do overall. During the content scanning phase, more than two-thirds of the remaining spam was blocked. This combined with the fact that there wasn’t a single false positive gave a final score of 99.87% (Virus Bulletin Anti Spam testing)

How the Service Works

Level 1-Reputation

Before the email is sent to The Email Laundry the sending machine will ask to connect. During this initial phase called the SMTP handshake, The Email Laundry’s world leading algorithims determine whether the connection is a genuine email server or just more internet “noise”. If it’s just noise the customer doesn’t need to see the traffic and the connection is dropped. The logs are retained on the service for reference.

Level 2-Anti Virus

Each email is then scanned through multiple anti-virus engines. These engines are continually changing to take advantage of the best performing engine.

Level 3-Content

Every email goes through a range of filters examining different aspects of the content of the email data. These include examining embedded URL’s for linking to malicious sites, examining our own spam fingerprinting service against our spam traps, examining header and body content for obvious “spammer” give-aways.

Level 4-User Content

The customer has a number of options to determine what is blocked such as blocking sound, video or executable files. The customer can also implement white and black lists.This is all set up in the customer web interface.
