Advanced Protection from Email-based Threats

Threat emails sent to organisations are more sophisticated and more targeted which means they are increasingly likely to cause serious problems. Often, they contain dangerous phishing attempts aimed at obtaining sensitive data, including usernames, passwords, and credit card data. WatchGuard spamBlocker provides continuous protection against spam and phishing attempts.

Key Features

  • spamBlocker blocks nearly 100% of all threat and unwanted emails
  • Spam outbreaks are continuously detected as they emerge for immediate protection
  • spamBlocker blocks spam regardless of content, and in any language or format
  • spamBlocker has a false-positive rating of nearly zero
  • It Works on both SMTP and POP3 protocols
  • Emails from trusted domains allowed using flexible white lists

Constant, Real-Time Threat Protection

Using Cyren patented, cloud-based Red Current Pattern Detection (RPD) technology, WatchGuard spamBlocker instantly identifies spam outbreaks to protect against threats, blocking almost 100%. Cyren’s technology reviews up to 4 billion messages every day to keep out dangerous and unwanted emails and leave you confident that only legitimate emails will get through.

Far-Reaching, High-Performance Coverage

WatchGuard spamBlocker does most of its processing outside your internet gateway which means it doesn’t need as much bandwidth and CPU power which increases network performance. You can rely on highly reliable protection whatever content, format or language is used in the email, and spamBlocker works on both SMPT and POP3 email protocols.

Granular Control

An intuitive management console enables you to use flexible white lists to create exceptions that will allow or deny emails from specific recipients or senders. You can also choose to tag for easy spam identification, deny, quarantine, and allow emails. Tags include confirmed, bulk and suspect. A Virus Outbreak Detection feature allows you to add an additional layer of security by enabling the examination of file attachments to see whether the distribution pattern is like malware.

Full in-depth Visibility and Reporting

Within WatchGuard Cloud Visibility / Dimension you have access to detailed reports on the type of spam identified, the sender and the recipient. You can also quickly view graphs detailing the total number of messages scanned over a set time, and the number of emails identified by threat level.

How spamBlocker works

When the WatchGuard Firebox receives email, it queries the spamBlocker cloud-based service to determine whether it contains known spam. It then quarantines, blocks or allows based on the spam score given.
