Email Guard is Progent's email security platform that uses the services and infrastructure of leading information security vendors to provide web-based management and world-class protection for your email traffic. The powerful architecture of Email Guard integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with a local gateway appliance to offer advanced protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-based malware. The Cloud Protection Layer serves as a first line of defense and blocks the vast majority of unwanted email from making it to your network firewall. This reduces your vulnerability to external attacks and saves system bandwidth and storage. Email Guard's onsite gateway appliance adds a deeper layer of inspection for incoming email. For outgoing email, the on-premises security gateway provides AV and anti-spam protection, protection against data leaks, and email encryption. The on-premises security gateway can also assist Exchange Server to monitor and safeguard internal email that originates and ends within your corporate firewall.
