Progent can also help you outsource spam blocking and defense against e-mail-based assaults. Email Guard is Progent's email security platform that uses the technology of leading information security companies to deliver centralized control and comprehensive security for your inbound and outbound email. The hybrid structure of Progent's Email Guard managed service combines a Cloud Protection Layer with an on-premises security gateway device to offer complete protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, DHAs, and other email-based malware.

For outgoing email, the local gateway offers anti-virus and anti-spam filtering, protection against data leaks, and encryption.
