Email Protection - Protection for your emails against spam, malware and data loss
Email security is essential for any organization to protect confidential information and defend against cyber threats such as spam and malware. Sophos Email Protection provides your IT administrator with a powerful, integrated security suite with multiple features to protect your email communications.
Integrated Message Transfer Agent
The integrated Message Transfer Agent (MTA) allows emails to be processed and filtered directly through the Sophos Firewall. This increases the efficiency and security of e-mail communication and reduces the load on the internal mail server.
With Email Protection you get two antivirus engines running in parallel. They intercept current viruses, malware and malicious URLs circulated via email and prevent them from entering the network.
Sandboxing: Detect and block unknown malware in emails
Sandboxing is an important feature of Sophos Email Protection that helps protect your business from malware infections. By analyzing email attachments in an isolated, virtual environment, potential threats can be detected and neutralized before they enter your email system.
Combined with Sophos Email Protection 's other security features, sandboxing provides additional protection against advanced cyberthreats that traditional anti-spam and anti-malware filters may not detect. This reduces the likelihood of a successful attack on your business and ensures the security of your confidential data and systems.
Live Anti-Spam - Keep Inboxes Spam-Free
The live anti-spam function can detect and block unwanted e-mails in real time. This helps maintain the integrity of your email system and increase employee productivity by automatically screening out unwanted emails.
With Email Protection, unwanted messages are blocked before they wreak havoc in your inboxes or prevent you from getting work done. Even the latest and constantly modified spam campaigns don't stand a chance.
Self-service quarantine allows users to review and manage potentially malicious or unwanted email in a secure environment. This reduces the likelihood of important emails being inadvertently classified as spam and enables faster response time in identifying and stopping threats.
SPX Email Encryption - Secure confidential information with powerful encryption
SPX email encryption in Sophos Email Protection is an important security measure to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of email. Encryption of e-mails containing sensitive information protects this data from unauthorized access while it is being transmitted over the Internet.
SPX Email Encryption uses powerful encryption technology to ensure that only authorized recipients can access the contents of an encrypted email. The sender of an email can enable encryption by using a simple policy or a specific subject prefix, making the process both user-friendly and secure.
In addition, SPX email encryption enables secure exchange of encrypted messages between different email clients and platforms without the need for additional software or plug-ins. Recipients of an encrypted e-mail can easily decrypt it by entering a password that has been communicated to them separately.
Using SPX email encryption helps ensure compliance with privacy regulations and internal security policies. Companies can thus ensure that confidential data such as personal information, trade secrets or financial data is protected during electronic communication.
Data Loss Prevention - Protecting confidential data and minimizing risks in e-mail communication
The Data Loss Prevention(DLP) feature in Sophos Email Protection is an important tool to prevent accidental or malicious loss of confidential information. DLP enables IT administrators to create and enforce specific policies for detecting and controlling sensitive data in email to ensure your corporate data remains safe and secure.
Data Loss Prevention allows IT administrators to monitor email communications based on user-defined rules and criteria. These can concern, for example, keywords, file attachments, file types or data patterns. Once an email is deemed potentially risky, the DLP feature can automatically block the message, quarantine it, or send an alert to the sender or administrator.
By implementing data loss prevention policies, organizations can:
- Ensure compliance with regulatory and industry standards by preventing the unauthorized transmission of sensitive information such as personal data, credit card numbers, or intellectual property.
- Reduce the risk of data leaks by preventing employees from accidentally or intentionally sharing confidential information via email.
- Protect corporate reputation and minimize potential financial losses or legal consequences due to data leaks.
Block unwanted content - control over email attachments
The block unwanted content feature in Sophos Email Protection gives IT administrators the ability to control specific file types sent or received via email. This makes it possible to proactively manage potentially risky or inappropriate content such as MP3s, video files, software programs and more.
By blocking unwanted content, organizations can increase the security and integrity of their email communications. Controlling the type of files that circulate through the email system minimizes the risk of confidential data being compromised or unwanted programs being installed. This feature is particularly useful for ensuring compliance with corporate policies and regulatory requirements while promoting employee productivity.
