The Cisco IronPort C370 Email Security Appliance is built on the foundation of the Cisco IronPort AsyncOS operating system to provide power for today's mail volumes and high-performance scanning for tomorrow's threats. The Cisco IronPort C370 delivers industry-leading protection from inbound spam and virus attacks and outbound data loss possibilities, in an easy-to-use appliance.
Today's email-borne threats consist of virus attacks, spam, false positives, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, spyware, phishing (fraud), regulatory compliance violations, and data loss. The Cisco IronPort C370 incorporates preventive and reactive security measures that are easy to deploy and manage.
Cisco IronPort technology demonstrates return on investment through sophisticated management, monitoring, and reporting tools. Each appliance has a unique reporting system, providing both a real-time and historical look at mail flowing through an organization's email infrastructure. These tools provide system administrators with the necessary information to make critical security decisions.
Reduced administrative burden
The Cisco IronPort C370 uses the industry's most advanced technology to deal with threats and anomalies in a fully automated manner. This allows highly skilled IT staff to focus on other problems and leave the email issues to Cisco.
The Cisco IronPort MTA platform enables a massive reduction in cost by consolidating email operations and security into a single platform. Self-managing security services provide the lowest-maintenance solution in the industry, with minimal configuration requirements.
Increased end-user productivity
By securing the network at the gateway level, the Cisco IronPort C370 acts as a "shock absorber" in front of the groupware server. This helps ensure that end users are not bogged down by spam, viruses, and other threats. Unlike other solutions, Cisco security services do not rely on end users to "train" the system. Instead, high accuracy is maintained through continuous and automatic rule updates.
Improved network efficiency
The Cisco IronPort reputation filtering system was the first in the industry and remains the most sophisticated. The system will block more than 80 percent of incoming mail at the connection level. By eliminating these unwanted messages, companies save bandwidth and system resources. CPU-intensive spam and virus filters are only used when needed, and rate limiting is an effective defense against "hit and run" spam or Dos attacks.
