As spam has surpassed legitimate emails in daily volume by 1:9 in ratio, spam now accounts for up to 90% of all email traffic regardless of your industry, location or organizational size. Unfortunately, spam is a growing threat that will not soon disappear or wane. In the past, IT security professionals were simply concerned with the impact of spam on bandwidth issues and employee productivity, but now the changing threat landscape has turned spam prevention into a critical security priority. Spam has now become a source of criminal and malevolent behavior, including the dramatic rise in spammers sending blended threats to attack other vulnerable avenues of your network to infect it with malware or lure an unsuspecting user to a website under false pretenses, resulting in the user downloading malicious code, crimeware, spyware and putting the entire network at risk. Because spammers are increasingly using creative methods, social engineering and technical tactics to get their messages into users' inboxes, organizations need to take a multi-layered approach to messaging security to ensure that these threats never enter the network.
BorderWare Anti-Spam is a threat prevention solution that uses a defense-in-depth approach to combat spam with up to three layers of filtering to achieve an industry-best catch- and accuracy-rate. The first layer of BorderWare's defense-in-depth strategy is carried out at the connection level, interoperating seamlessly with the BorderWare ReputationAuthority, allowing you to reject 98.3% of unwanted traffic without having to process a single byte of information. The remaining 2.7% then undergoes deep content inspection at the second layer of defense with the BorderWare Anti-Spam engine that examines the content, images and sender information of the message traffic to provide a context-based weighted score on the spam suspect level of the message, with a remarkably low ratio of 1 in 2,000,000 false positives. With BorderWare Anti-Spam, you have complete control over the way you throttle and tune your spam. Finally, for organizations that require the most protection, the third layer of anti-spam technology BorderWare provides is Brightmail.
