Remote Mail Scanning

Email has transformed how we communicate with others at home, in the office, down the street and around the globe, and has become as integral to business communications as the phone and fax.

Unfortunately, this revolutionary communications tool is under constant attack, with its delivery routes polluted each day by billions of unsolicited messages ranging from the merely annoying to the truly dangerous. The cost to businesses worldwide in dealing with spam and malicious email threats has reached billions of dollars annually.

What would happen if your email server went down right now? Where would the messages trying to reach your server go? Would they bounce back to the original sender or just vanish into cyberspace? What about when one of your mail servers is blacklisted due to viruses and malware? Email is a primary function of almost all businesses today and without it working correctly, it causes businesses to come to a halt. Don’t let this happen to your business.

Following is a quick checklist to see if your email infrastructure is at risk:

  • Is your email being scanned before it comes into your mail server?
  • How well is it protected?
  • Are you able to retrieve your mail in the case of a system failure?

If you answered ‘no‘ to any of the above, you should seriously revise your email management plan.
