Comodo Anti-Spam Gateway is an advanced email filtering solution designed to free employee's inboxes of Junk Mail Glut. It is cloud-based, which is ideally suited for small to mid-size businesses.

Why is Spam control Necessary ?

Risk of Compromise

Malware authors, spammers & 'phishers' have joined forces in an effort to socially engineer end-users to open email attachment or click on phishing links redirecting to malicious websites, thus infecting the host with viruses, Rrojans, spyware, rootkits & backdoors leading to the theft of confidential data and causing the infected system to be absorbed into global botnets.

Legal risk

Most mail-client software (e.g Microsoft Outlook) has a preview function that displays e-mail content. Pornographic, offensive, religiously or socially objectionabe material will be automatically exhibited which may lead to legal action against the employers failure to apply due diligence in not procuring readily available counter-measures to shield objectionable material.

Regulatory risk

Most spam email contains hidden tracking allowing the sender to identify which email addresses reviewed its messages - even in preview mode. This causes spam volumes to increase exponentially, but it may also cause a failure in regulatory compliance. For example, the data protection Act (U.K.), which dicatates that it is the company's responsibility to control any data sent from its email addresses.

Increased storage costs

For companies that have their own mail servers, or hosted mailboxes, spam consumes storage. Mail data stores or pay-per-Gigabyte cloud solutions often rapidly fill with junk mail requiring that more storage be purchased.

Network traffic interruption

Up to 80% of incoming traffic is spam. This interrupts regular network traffic, slowing down legitimate inbound communication also known as bandwidth starvation.

Increased connectivity costs

ISPs have to pay for the bandwidth that they resell to their customers, the more they have to buy to offset the volumes of customer spam consuming their bandwidth the more they have to charge the end-user

Blacklisting risk

Spammers increasingly use 'hijacked'mail servers to send their spam. This helps them remain anonymous in their inability to send or receive legitimate email.

Increased Administration costs

Mail servers administrators have to devote otherwise productive time to clean spam messages out of mailboxes in order to keep the server's mail stores operating at optimum capacity.

Decreased productivity

For every ten spam messages received per hour, at a rate of 3 seconds for identification and deletion, nearly 3 hours per month or 4 fully paid days per year are spent on inbox house keeping

Risk of fraud

Email from banks, clearing houses, online retailers and social networking sites have to be carefully scrutinized to ensure that they are genuine and not being used to mislead recipients to disclose sensitive information with the intension of conducting fraudulent transactions on behalf of the organisation or its users.
