MailGuard is an email security and archiving solution that helps mitigate cyber security threats.
Cybersecurity is one of the most significant issues facing business today. With more than 293 billion emails sent throughout the world every day, it’s hardly surprising then that the number of security breaches has increased by 67% since 2014, with a cyber-attack occurring every 39 seconds, or on average 2,244 times each day.
Over 94% of Cyber security related breaches have been highlighted as originating from Spam email.

Virus, Malware & Blended Threat Protection
Integrated anti-spyware scanners specifically target malicious URLs embedded in messages with the MailGuard Hybrid AI (Artificial Intelligence) cloud-based malware behavior engines.
Our engines detect and unpack archive file types, identifying viruses recursively embedded within attachments. Once identified, we block dangerous file types by their content and MIME type, thus detecting mislabelled attachments.
