E-mails remain the top means of communication within companies. But without proper protection, they’re an open door for attackers who can easily read any non-encrypted messages you send and receive. For decades, e-mails have played such a key role in our daily routine that we often forget about safeguarding them, but countless examples demonstrate just how dangerous such negligence can be. Not only do you risk exposing the contents of entire mailboxes, you may also spread destructive viruses by thoughtlessly opening suspicious attachments. E-mail security software—coupled with proper training—is a good way to counter these threats. Check out our Bechtle online shop for effective solutions.
The current Internet Security Threat Report by Symantec shows that business e-mail compromise (BEC) schemes target countless companies, costing them mountains of money. That’s a real problem. And e-mail security software is a key part of the solution. Our Bechtle online shop offers numerous security solutions from providers such as Kaspersky, Sophos, Proofpoint, Avira, Symantec, Trend Micro, GFI, ESET, Net at Work and Microsoft. You’ll be sure to find the right product for your requirements. Avira AntiVir MailGate, for example, is perfect for companies using UNIX platforms, while ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server is optimised for virtual environments and scalable to several hundred users. Net at Work NoSpamProxy offers a combination of spam/malware protection, e-mail encryption, secure large-file transfers and e-mail signatures—consolidating several applications into one premium e-mail security solution.
The effectiveness of an e-mail security solution depends on the features it offers. Spam and phishing protection should be scaled automatically, while allowing you to view quarantined spam e-mails locally in order to decide what to do with them. NoSpamProxy even lets you work without a quarantine, easing the workload of administrators and users. Spyware, viruses and worms must be countered effectively without bogging down your system. Mailboxes must be scanned regularly. Malware-based identity theft must be combated reliably. That’s where programs like Symantec Mail Security come in handy. High-quality programs also ensure that legitimate e-mails are virtually never misidentified as spam. And compliance with legal telecommunications requirements is another good reason to invest in premium software. Our product managers will be happy to advise you.
