Progent can also show you how to outsource spam filtering and defense against e-mail-based assaults. Email Guard is Progent's email filtering and encryption solution that incorporates the technology of leading data security companies to deliver centralized control and comprehensive protection for all your email traffic. The powerful architecture of Progent's Email Guard managed service integrates cloud-based filtering with a local security gateway device to provide advanced protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks, and other email-borne threats. The cloud filter acts as a first line of defense and keeps most threats from reaching your network firewall. This decreases your exposure to external threats and conserves system bandwidth and storage space. Email Guard's on-premises gateway appliance adds a deeper layer of inspection for incoming email. For outbound email, the local gateway provides anti-virus and anti-spam filtering, policy-based Data Loss Prevention, and email encryption. The local gateway can also assist Microsoft Exchange Server to track and protect internal email traffic that originates and ends within your security perimeter.
