Most of us are intimately familiar with the Nigerian price wishing you well and bringing millions of newfound monies to your inbox. While most emails can be generally laughed and shrugged off, a bigger situation can be often overlooked with potential outgoing spam that could have serious consequences to your company.
Outbound Filtering keeps your company’s reputation in good standing by protecting you from a plethora of nasty problems that malicious robots can wreak on your email platform. The filter combats spam from ever being sent by your network, so you’ll never worry about being blacklisted, the reputation of your IP address, or your brand name.
When you send an email, your mail server is sending that email from an IP. That IP that is sending that message is communicating with the receiving mail server. Every inbox that will be sending those emails from the same IPs that your mail server uses.
If there is no outbound filtering in place, if any of your inboxes gets compromised, the bots then begin their process of skimming your contacts and reaching out to as many people with their spam. The more and more emails sent, and the longer this goes on, before you know it your sending email server IP and your domain then get placed on a RBL (Realtime Blackhole List). Most major email providers subscribe to such lists, and once you are on it, your emails will either be filtering out and returned to you as undeliverable, or end up in their spam..
Beyond the time and aggravation of locating and resolving the compromised account(s) in your network, you’ll be spending time removing yourself from the RBLs, as well as the countless phone calls and follow ups to everyone that you deal with to let them know what’s happened.
All it takes is one compromised account to ruin an IPs reputation and greatly affect your overall email continuity. To counteract this, we give you detailed ARF reports that indicate abusing accounts that need attention and lock them out from causing damage to your network. This ensures that your reputation is protected at all times.
In addition to ARF reports and automatic user-locking, we work closely with industry security firms and RBL operators. If you need help working with these parties, we will assist you in resolving your questions as quickly as possible.
