Progent can also assist you to outsource spam filtering and protection from e-mail-based security threats. Email Guard is Progent's email security platform that uses the technology of leading information security companies to deliver web-based management and world-class security for your inbound and outbound email. The hybrid architecture of Email Guard integrates cloud-based filtering with an on-premises security gateway appliance to provide advanced defense against spam, viruses, Dos Attacks, DHAs, and other email-borne threats. The cloud filter acts as a first line of defense and blocks most unwanted email from reaching your network firewall. This decreases your vulnerability to inbound attacks and saves network bandwidth and storage space. Email Guard's on-premises security gateway device provides a further layer of analysis for incoming email. For outgoing email, the local security gateway provides AV and anti-spam protection, protection against data leaks, and encryption. The on-premises security gateway can also help Exchange Server to track and protect internal email that stays within your security perimeter.

Security Inventory Service Packages for Small Companies

With Progent's External Security Inventory Scan, an engineer runs an extensive examination of your IT infrastructure from beyond your firewalled perimeter to determine possible risks in the security posture you expose to the outside world. With Progent's Internal Network Security Inventory Scan, an engineer runs a network scan from a secure computer within your firewall to determine the risk to internal threats. The two security inventory services are configured and run from a protected external location. The project is overseen by an engineer with high-level security credentials and who generates a report that summarizes and interprets the data captured by the scan and proposes cost-effective improvements where called for.
