Email Guard is Progent's email security platform that incorporates the services and infrastructure of top information security vendors to provide centralized control and world-class protection for your email traffic. The hybrid structure of Email Guard combines a Cloud Protection Layer with a local security gateway device to provide advanced defense against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-based malware. The Cloud Protection Layer acts as a preliminary barricade and keeps the vast majority of unwanted email from making it to your security perimeter. This decreases your vulnerability to inbound threats and conserves network bandwidth and storage. Email Guard's on-premises security gateway appliance provides a deeper layer of analysis for incoming email. For outbound email, the local gateway offers AV and anti-spam filtering, protection against data leaks, and email encryption.
