Enhanced Spam Prevention – Supports all third party DNS-based Real-time Blacklists or RBLs (e.g. MAPS, spamhaus.org and orbd.org). Enterprises can use multiple blacklist services at the same time to stop spam based on different sources. Suspicious e-mail can be tagged as spam by adding a text prefix to warn of possible spam without deleting valid email.
Enhanced Content Filtering – Incorporates flexible and intuitive filtering rules to stop unwanted content from entering the network and prevent confidential information from leaving the network. Scans suspicious files and attachments. Allows administrators to set rules specifically for scanning inbound email versus both internal and external email, saving time and preserving bandwidth. Also utilises Symantec’s patented Dynamic Document Review (DDR) heuristic technology to automatically block objectionable content.
Enhanced Virus Protection – Provides enhanced protection against viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and blended threats. Purges mass mailer worms prior to reaching end-users, minimising helpdesk calls and saving storage space. Proactive outbreak feature detects virus outbreaks in the early stages and automatically quarantines suspicious messages.
