Protection against external threats over inbound and outbound email, instant messages (IM) and SharePoint collaboration with integrated antispam, antivirus, and advanced content filtering.
  • Detect and block spam before it reaches the internal mail infrastructure
  • Protect business networks from quickly spreading viruses and worms
  • Lower the administrative IT costs and risk of properly securing and managing a messaging infrastructure with flexible options for hosted, managed services and appliances
