Email Guard is Progent's email filtering and encryption platform that uses the services and infrastructure of top data security vendors to deliver centralized management and comprehensive protection for all your inbound and outbound email. The hybrid structure of Progent's Email Guard integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with a local gateway device to provide advanced protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-based threats. The Cloud Protection Layer serves as a first line of defense and keeps most unwanted email from reaching your network firewall.
