Detailed Features of the CudaMail Spam Filtering Service
Spam definitions are automatically updated constantly, as well as new Spam rules, Spam algorithms, and Virus definitions on a ongoing basis. These updates require zero administration and ensure that your network has comprehensive and accurate protection even as the methods of attack change.
The CudaMail service uses a powerful spam filtering/reputation analysis/anti-malware system in several geographically distributed data centres. This is a powerful defense system (Network Denial of Service Protection, Rate Control, IP Reputation Analysis, Sender Authentication, Recipient Verification, Virus Scanning, Policy (User-specified rules), Spam Fingerprint Check, Intent Analysis, Image Analysis, Bayesian Analysis, Rule-based Scoring ). Here are some of the unbeatable features that you will have access to using our service:
- Anti-Spam – The algorithms and methods used by the CudaMail Service are the most comprehensive and most advanced in the industry at detecting and filtering spam resulting in the lowest rate of false positives.
- Anti-Virus – By utilizing dual layer virus blocking, decompression of archives and file type blocking, the anti-virus engine used by the CudaMail service provides complete virus protection.
- Anti-spoofing – This technology prevents the use of forged or "spoofed" sender addresses on unsolicited email. The anti-spoofing feature also allows larger organizations to specify a list of IP addresses that are allowed to have a "From" address that appears from inside the organization to support multiple sites and multiple email servers.
- Anti-phishing – The CudaMail service provides robust protection against phishing schemes which are often used to gather confidential information about an organization or its individual users.
- Anti-spyware (Attachments) – All attachments are scanned and any spyware executables are detected and eliminated immediately.
- Denial of Service Protection – Rate controls are utilized to stop denial of service attacks as well as dictionary based Spam attacks. These rate control systems are integrated and automatic in the CudaMail service.
End-User Control Features and Settings
The CudaMail service has many individual settings and configurations available to make the end-user's experience a truly tailored email solution.
- User Based Filtering - The CudaMail service can be configured to set Spam policies by the end user on an individualized basis or on the global domain level.
- Personal Allow and Block Lists - The CudaMail service can be configured to allow end users to have control over their individual allow and block lists which further reduces the chance of false positives.
- End-User Quarantine - The CudaMail service provides the ability to setup quarantine mailboxes where users can direct questionable email for later review. This greatly reduces the support load for large organizations.
- Quarantine Digest Emails - You can have quarantine digest emails sent to all end users with a quarantine account summarizing the contents of their individual quarantine mailboxes. They can be configured up to 1 per hour!. End-users do not have to remember any passwords or user IDs to access their quarantine mailbox; each summary account email is an html document with direct links pointing to the end-users quarantine mailbox with the appropriate verification embedded.
