Transparent Filtering

Product Details

Email Security Features

Fully Transparent

MailChannels transparently proxies outgoing email from your network, filtering it and applying an abuse management policy that you define. Spam is redirected or quarantined away from the network flow, which improves your IP reputation and reduces the number of support calls related to IP blacklisting. Transparent proxying is the only method that enables detection and blocking of spam from machines you don’t control, such as subscribers PCs and mobile devices, and dedicated and virtual servers.

Behavior Analysis

Spammers don’t behave like legitimate users. MailChannels records dozens of minute-by-minute statistics about each email sender in your network, detecting when a sender’s behavior suddenly starts looking “spammy.” MailChannels reviews each sender’s full history before letting a message get delivered, ensuring spammers never get a chance to get established in your network.

Response Analytics™

Email receivers generate confusing and ever-changing error messages to let you know they don’t like your email. MailChannels understands what these errors mean, and by combining this intelligence with sender behavior analysis, allows you to respond even more quickly to spammers whose message content is so new the filters don’t even recognize it yet.

Integration with external services

Fighting spam at service provider scale is a team effort, requiring tight integration with external data-feeds and services. MailChannels lets you consume external data through native SQL, LDAP, DNS, and web service bindings that are delivered through an intuitive JavaScript policy interface.
