Built on MIMEsweeper, Clearswift’s celebrated content-inspection and filtering technology, the Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway is a highly effective and resilient email gateway for 50 to 50,000 users. With the Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway installed, your organisation can be confident that it is protected from digital threats and data leaks while employees communicate freely by email.
The Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway’s powerful content-inspection engine is twinned with an easy-to-use policy centre to assist with development of effective email-use policies. Ready-made template policies ensure that the Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway is fit to perform from the moment it is deployed.
Creating new policies, or modifying policy templates, is a quick and straightforward process. The rules can be tailored at user level to better manage how email messages are shared, stored and distributed. To ensure consistency and save time on administration, policies are linked to directory servers and update transparently across multiple and SECURE Email Gateway installations.
Content inspection and malware protection
The Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway is equipped with the most capable content-hygiene tools. Bidirectional anti-virus and anti-malware protection is built in. This means both inbound and outgoing emails are checked for viruses and other malware.
The content of both message bodies and attachments are scanned. Deep scanning of message attachments means that the content of compressed files is examined, too. File identification is based on binary signatures, rather file names, improving accuracy and ensuring that unrecognised file types are picked up. Images can be checked for pornographic content as well as the ability to register corporate images as either acceptable or unacceptable for email distribution.
