Threat Protection: Block Malware and Spam

Prevent spear phishing and targeted attacks

With businesses of all sizes being targeted by spear phishing attacks, it’s critical to protect users from malicious emails. These attacks often come in the form of an email attachment with embedded malware. When these attachments contain a new zero-day attack, traditional security defenses may not catch them.

Symantec Messaging Gateway uses Disarm, a proprietary Symantec technology, to help protect against targeted attacks and zero day malware by removing exploitable content from Microsoft Office and PDF attachments. The clean document is reconstructed, reattached to the email, and sent to its destination. Disarm stops never-before-seen threats, not just known malware

  • Symantec’s Global Intelligence Network sees over 3 billion messages each day to accurately identify malware and spam
  • Block 99% of spam with one in 1 million false positives
  • Create personalized antispam rules for additional protection from unwanted mail
  • URL reputation blocks messages with malicious links

Information Protection: Prevent Data Loss Over Email

Integrate with Symantec Data Loss Prevention

Losing sensitive company information can lead to a damaged reputation, lost customers, and ultimately a decrease in revenue. Data can easily be lost over email, whether intentionally or accidentally. 

Symantec Messaging Gateway offers advanced content filtering and data loss prevention technologies to enforce regulatory compliance and protect against data loss with sophisticated structured data matching technology. 

In addition to these on-box features, Messaging Gateway can act as an enforcement point for Symantec Data Loss Prevention. Integrated quarantine management allows data loss prevention administrators to directly manage and take action on items quarantined by Messaging Gateway from the Symantec Data Loss Prevention Enforce console.

  • Easily create DLP policies within Messaging Gateway
  • Use TLS for secure communication with Symantec Data Loss Prevention
  • Optional policy-based encryption of messages with Symantec Content Encryption add-on

Easy Management and Control

Flexible options and unified administration

No two organizations have the same needs, so technology needs to be flexible enough to work in your particular environment and provide the visibility and data you need to effectively manage your email infrastructure. Symantec Messaging Gateway is available as a physical appliance or virtual appliance using VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments to work with your existing infrastructure and easily expand as needed.

Messaging Gateway offers a unified console to manage multiple appliances, track messages, and view trends, attack statistics, and noncompliance incidents. This single management console provides detailed visibility into the mail flow for granular control and reduces the total cost of ownership of messaging security infrastructure.

  • Supports IPv6, IPv4, and mixed networks
  • LDAP authentication enables single sign-on and policy configuration using LDAP groups
  • Customizable reporting with over 50 preset reports
  • Identify threat trends and potential compliance issues from the management console
