Email Guard is Progent's email filtering and encryption platform that incorporates the technology of top data security vendors to deliver web-based control and comprehensive protection for all your inbound and outbound email. The powerful architecture of Email Guard integrates a Cloud Protection Layer with an on-premises gateway appliance to provide complete protection against spam, viruses, Denial of Service Attacks, DHAs, and other email-borne malware.
