BPI Email Security is a hosted email security service that provides email users with unprecedented control over access to their inbox. Email Security 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.
Email Security exceptional degree of control is achieved by combining its unique capabilities with traditional defenses, such as Allow Lists, Block Lists, and content filtering, based on the user’s preferences. Research shows that Email Security’s blended defense-in-depth can improve the effectiveness of traditional techniques by one to two orders of magnitude.
When other systems “run out of gas” responding to the latest spammer exploits, Email Security still has more to offer, with Address-on-the-Fly™ (AOTF), Protective Addresses™, and Permitted Language and Permitted Country capabilities. The Protective Address model provides users with an unlimited supply of alternative addresses, all of which resolve to a single inbox, are individually manageable with granular security states, and are automatically managed by the system. While Protective Addresses can be used in a disposable fashion, they needn’t be disposable, as an address can “live on” for one group of users, while being disabled for others. The Permitted Language and Country capabilities can block significant additional amounts of spam by ensuring that users never receive mail in languages that they can’t speak or from countries outside their organization’s geographic area of operation.
Email Security also provides automated email continuity, by spooling inbound email for 7 days when one’s local server experiences an outage, and outbound email filtering, to help prevent users from inadvertently spamming their customers, partners and suppliers.
