More Questions and Answers

How can Progent help my company filter spam, email-borne viruses, and Directory Harvest Attacks?
Email Guard is Progent's spam and virus filtering and email encryption service that incorporates the technology of top information security vendors to provide centralized management and comprehensive protection for all your email traffic. The hybrid structure of Progent's Email Guard integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with a local security gateway appliance to offer advanced protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-based threats. Email Guard's Cloud Protection Layer acts as a first line of defense and keeps the vast majority of threats from making it to your network firewall. This decreases your exposure to external threats and saves network bandwidth and storage. Email Guard's on-premises security gateway appliance adds a deeper layer of inspection for inbound email. For outgoing email, the on-premises gateway offers AV and anti-spam protection, DLP, and email encryption. The on-premises security gateway can also assist Exchange Server to monitor and safeguard internal email traffic that stays within your corporate firewall.
