The powerful structure of Email Guard combines cloud-based filtering with a local gateway device to offer complete protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-borne threats. The cloud filter acts as a preliminary barricade and blocks the vast majority of unwanted email from reaching your security perimeter. This reduces your vulnerability to external attacks and saves network bandwidth and storage space. ProSight Email Guard's onsite gateway device adds a further level of analysis for incoming email. For outgoing email, the local security gateway provides anti-virus and anti-spam protection, protection against data leaks, and email encryption. The local security gateway can also help Microsoft Exchange Server to track and protect internal email that stays inside your security perimeter.
