Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange

Email security software

Prevent the Spread of Malware

Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange (SMSMSE) combines Symantec anti-malware technology with advanced heuristics and file reputation to provide real-time protection for email against viruses, spyware, phishing, and other malicious attacks. For additional protection, SMSMSE offers Symantec Premium AntiSpam (additional license), powered by Brightmail™ technology. Together, these protections help to stop 99 percent of incoming spam with less than one false positive per million. SMSMSE enforces content filtering policies on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, 2013, and 2016, while supporting hosted, Microsoft Hyper-V®, and VMware® virtualized Exchange server environments. Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange complements other layers of protection by preventing the spread of email-borne threats and enforcing data loss prevention (DLP) policies.
