Total Control Email Security
Reflexion’s antispam and email security service provides the configurability that IT solution providers need to address a wide range of customer requirements, with the automation and simplicity that end users love.
- Blocks spam, viruses and volume-based attacks before they reach the corporate network
- Address-on-the-Fly™ technology preserves the integrity of one’s primary email address and identifies address-sharing and the sources of spam
- Automatic inbound email queuing assures email continuity in the event of a local server outage
- Outbound email filtering protects one’s reputation and helps to avoid IP address blacklisting.
Reflexion blocks unwanted mail, such as spam, viruses and directory harvesting and denial of service (DoS) attacks, and makes phishing attacks self-evident. Beyond that, however, it adds a positive dimension to inbox control by assuring the delivery of desirable mail, providing users with a new means of judging a message’s legitimacy, and providing tools that help to preserve the long-term integrity of the user’s primary email address.
There are three main points:
- RTC provides many different layers of protection for defense-in-depth of one’s inbox.
- The service is uniquely configurable, providing the versatility that email administrators and solution providers need to address the widest range of end-user requirements. Mail for a specific user will only be subjected to the tests dictated by their configuration (or if one is not specified, by the default enterprise configuration).
- The architecture is extensible so that new defenses can be added as they become available or desirable.
Email users often have a favorite method of dealing with unwanted content and senders. Some people like the precision of allow/block lists to authorize or block specific senders or domains (often called “whitelisting” and “blacklisting”); others prefer the simplicity of content filtering; still others like the added effectiveness of challenge-response methods.
A similar range of preferences exists for handling the messages classified as spam. Some users want a daily email summary of blocked email; others want to examine their spam quarantine folder directly; still others may choose to divert their daily quarantine summary to an assistant for checking. Some may not want to be bothered with checking spam folders at all, and elect to have any offending mail vaporized.
Reflexion’s service has the versatility to accommodate all of these preferences, and more. Importantly, capabilities can be blended to provide more effective protection than can be achieved by using any one technique independently. In particular, customer experience shows that by combining content-independent techniques with content-based filtering techniques, Reflexion yields dramatic improvements in user control over inbox access.
