The Great Annoyance: Spam

Spam email is more than just an annoyance. Top Cyber-Security experts cite these unwanted emails as the leading source of cyber-attacks. To protect your users, systems and data from these destructive cyber-threats, you need an agile, yet robust email security solution. Read below about how our 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security Suite can protect your organization from all types of email based cyber threats.

How does it work?

First, 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security thoroughly scans every email before it is delivered to your mail server. Using virus scanning, spam scoring, real-time intent analysis, URL link protection, reputation checks, and other techniques, 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security provides you with the best possible level of protection.

Additionally, our Advanced Email Security Suite utilizes a global 24×7 threat operations center which constantly monitors the internet for new threats, and then uses this information to continuously enhance the spam and virus filtering technology. The 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security Suite is always up to date.

What about protecting my outbound email?

It happens every day. Without knowing (or meaning to) an employee can cause internal systems to become a source for spam or other malicious mail. Our outbound email filtering will detect these emails and stop the attack originating from inside the network.

In addition to preventing unwanted email from leaving your network, the Advanced Email Security suite data loss protection and email encryption features keep sensitive data—such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, HIPAA data, and more—from leaving your organization. By configuring a content policy, we can automatically encrypt, quarantine, or even block certain outbound emails based on their content, sender, or recipient.

What happens to my email if my server goes offline?

If your mail server goes offline for any reason, 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security provides email continuity by failing over to our cloud-based email service, allowing users continue to send and receive emails, staying productive until your primary servers are back online.

What can I do to help my users identify dangerous email that “look real”?

Even with the most sophisticated email filtering, some of these attacks can reach users—such as via their voicemail or personal email. 4QuartersIT Advanced Email Security Suite uses phishing training and simulation to ensure continuous user security awareness. Running occasional tests will help you learn which users are likely to open a dangerous email and will provide insight into where your training efforts are best spent.
