Email is a critical tool and fundamental to business operations with billions of email messages transmitted every day. Like all good things it has a dark side and for email, the dark side is unsolicited email, spam and worse, spam with an extra helping of virus or trojan. For the engineers of this malicious email content is the best method to infiltrate your organisation or trick you into unwittingly handing over your details to third parties. It is impossible for a business to survive without doing something about spam and most will have some kind of filter, however not all anti-spam solutions are equal.
At Sherr Technologies we have created and developed Sherr Anti-Spam or SAS for short. Just like the other SAS, our system is the elite solution, managed by an elite team, killing spam with the minimum of fuss and minimising the risk of killing the good guys, i.e. those potentially critical business emails. Ordinary spam filters can accidentally designate good emails as spam; it’s called a false positive and when this happens your company might just miss out on the chance of a business opportunity. To kill spam with minimal collateral damage you need SAS.
Sherr Anti-Spam doesn’t just filter your emails, it is linked to a global network of systems which track and monitor spam trends. By keeping a close eye on messages travelling across the planet, it can quickly spot emerging spam and social engineering emails and build a defence against them. Built on industry standard software by Symantec and utilising its global network for intelligence gathering, ensures we can provide zero hour defence against emerging threats.
By filtering messages on our network of servers before they reach you, Sherr Anti-Spam reduces the traffic load on your network and reduces the workload on your email server so your IT budget can be focused on more critical areas of your business. SAS also forms part of our business continuity armoury; In the event of a failure of your internet connection which prevents emails delivered to you SAS will automatically detect the failure and retain the emails until your connection is restored. SAS will hold these emails for up to 15 days if necessary, but equally can be delivered to a secondary location in the event of an extended outage where you can collect your emails.
SAS also includes Data Loss Prevention as standard enabling your organisation to comply with regulations such as PCI DSS to prevent the transmission of messages with content that could harm your organisation. SAS offers and supports encrypted email to secure the contents of your emails.
SAS audits and logs all messages that are transmitted through it, good or bad, allowing us to track the outcome of any message that has been sent to your organisation, giving you peace of mind that your emails will arrive safely.
Sherr Anti-Spam is included as part of our Exchange Emails or Dedicated Exchange Server solutions, naturally giving you the best defence.
