Comodo announced today announced that their Cloud-based AntiSpam Gateway (ASG) service filtered its 50 millionth email on Sunday, December 1, 2013. To-date, ASG has filtered 50,911,110 emails of which 37,954,073 were found to be spam and over 140,000 viruses were blocked by ASG. Live statistics are available of the Antispam website found here http://www.comodo.com/business-security/email-security/antispam-gateway.php.
ASG uses the MX records in your domain’s DNS records to direct all email to Comodo’s software service (SaaS) first. This action intercepts an organization’s spam and virus-laden email before it reaches the corporate mail server. Messages that are clean, or whose senders are whitelisted, are then passed to the original mail server address and on to the organization’s email users. Messages flagged as spam can also be reviewed by users at any time.
“Email is a mission-critical business tool.” said Michél Bechard, Comodo Product Line Manager. “Having to sift through a mail client’s Inbox validating an email’s authenticity reduces a workforce’s productivity and exposes them to potentially offensive material, which may also have legal consequences for the employer. Email is also a much-used mechanism for delivering malware to the desktop via infected email attachments or phishing links in the email content. Antispam Gateway reduces the risk of infection from virus-laden emails by filtering out known malware from email traffic.”
ASG is an advanced email filtering solution designed to free employee inboxes of junk mail. It is cloud-based, providing powerful, no-maintenance mail-filtering while avoiding the traditional hardware and software licensing costs of alternative antispam solutions. It has a centralized, web based management console, allowing for easy set up; to add users and domains; to add user-groups and permissions; to configure mail blacklists and whitelists; and to manage quarantined emails.
ASG also provides each employee with a login that allows them to view and manage their quarantined emails. Because ASG will quarantine messages that were scanned positive for virus attachments it is, in effect, a blacklist-based anti-malware gateway as well.
