Email Guard is Progent's email security solution that uses the services and infrastructure of top data security companies to deliver centralized management and comprehensive security for your email traffic. The powerful architecture of Progent's Email Guard combines a Cloud Protection Layer with a local gateway device to provide advanced defense against spam, viruses, Dos Attacks, DHAs, and other email-based threats. Email Guard's cloud filter acts as a first line of defense and blocks most unwanted email from making it to your network firewall.
