Spam Protection

85% of all emails are spam. For anyone with an email account, this is unsurprising. But did you know that email spam costs businesses $20.5 billion a year? 94% of malware is delivered via email and the average cost of a cybersecurity incident for a business is $280,000.

Protecting your business from email spam does more than just avoid the annoyance of spam, it also protects against cyber security threats. This includes viruses, malware, phishing, identity theft and scams. It also ensures that archived emails aren’t lost, ensuring your business remains compliant.

What is a spam filter and how does it work?

A spam filter is a program which detects and filters unsolicited, risky and virus-infected emails so they never reach your inbox. The way spam filters work is by identifying particular criteria in emails and subsequently marking those emails as spam. This may include the use of particular words, suspicious word patterns or word frequency. Filters may also track which kinds of emails you’re marking as spam and apply that knowledge to similar emails going forward.

Is spam filtering necessary?

We strongly recommend spam filtering. Even if you believe you’re able to identify what is a spam email and what isn't, manually filtering and deleting emails is onerous and unproductive. Furthermore, email phishing, email scams and malware emails are becoming increasingly sophisticated, making them harder to identify.
