Progent's ProSight Email Guard solution uses the services and infrastructure of top data security companies to provide centralized management and world-class security for all your inbound and outbound email. The hybrid structure of Progent's Email Guard managed service combines cloud-based filtering with a local security gateway appliance to provide advanced defense against spam, viruses, Dos Attacks, Directory Harvest Attacks, and other email-based threats. The cloud filter acts as a first line of defense and keeps the vast majority of threats from reaching your network firewall. This decreases your vulnerability to inbound attacks and saves network bandwidth and storage. Email Guard's on-premises security gateway appliance adds a deeper level of inspection for incoming email. For outgoing email, the local gateway provides anti-virus and anti-spam protection, DLP, and encryption. The on-premises security gateway can also help Microsoft Exchange Server to monitor and safeguard internal email that originates and ends inside your security perimeter.
