How can Progent help my company filter spam, email-borne viruses, and Directory Harvest Attacks?
ProSight Email Guard is Progent's spam filtering service that uses the infrastructure of top data security vendors to deliver web-based control and world-class protection for all your email traffic. The powerful structure of Progent's Email Guard managed service integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with a local gateway appliance to offer advanced defense against spam, viruses, Denial of Service (DoS) Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs), and other email-borne malware. The cloud filter serves as a preliminary barricade and blocks most threats from making it to your network firewall. This decreases your exposure to inbound attacks and conserves network bandwidth and storage. ProSight Email Guard's onsite security gateway appliance provides a deeper level of analysis for inbound email. For outgoing email, the local gateway offers anti-virus and anti-spam protection, protection against data leaks, and email encryption.
