Mail Server Security with Leading Malware and Spam Protection

More than 90% of targeted attacks, ransomware, or advanced persistent threats (APTs) begin with a spear phishing email—a type of phishing attack that targets specific groups or individuals. Unlike other leading solutions, ScanMail blocks targeted attacks, as well as spam, phishing, and malware with global threat intelligence from the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network.  And with optional data loss prevention, it can discover sensitive data in the mail store and simplify compliance initiatives.

Protection against Targeted Attacks

New targeted attack protections are built into ScanMail and enhanced with Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ Analyzer. Web reputation, document exploit detection, sandbox execution analysis, and custom local threat intelligence allow you to create a custom defense against spear phishing attacks associated with APTs and other targeted threats.

  • Detects known and unknown exploits in PDF, MS Office and other documents
  • Performs sandbox execution analysis of suspicious attachments and URLs, provides custom threat intelligence, and delivers adaptive security updates via optional Deep Discovery Analyzer integration
  • Stop threats from entering your environment with immediate protection based on global threat intelligence from Trend Micro Smart Protection Network cloud-based security
