The benefit of a spam filter appears straightforward – no unwanted e-mails are received on your own mail server. Yet the Skyfillers spam and virus filter does much more. Key benefits at a glance:
A false positive rate of less than 0.000015 per clean e-mail ensures that valid message end up in your inbox. If our customer’s mail server happens to be inaccessible, incoming e-mails are stored for up to seven days and automatically delivered when access is restored.
Our spam filter allows companies to establish and monitor rules for the use of e-mail as a communication medium. This requires a high degree of transparency but also control. Skyfillers offers various tools to meet these requirements.
Outsourcing your spam and virus filter also unburdens your IT infrastructure: Spam, viruses, phishing e-mails and other malware are safely caught before they even reach your company’s IT system. The load on your firewalls is reduced and internal appliances with anti-spam and antivirus functionality can be disabled. Administrative effort is also reduced as a result.
