Fast, Light and Effective Messaging Security

Your company's email server is a vital hub for productivity - and also an appealing attack surface for malware, phishing scams and spam. As cybercriminals' methods become increasingly sophisticated, safeguarding your mail server becomes a crucial component to your companywide security posture.

ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server blocks all types of email-borne malware and spam. It scans your email traffic with industry-leading precision, low system footprint and high scanning speed - so slowdowns will be a thing of the past.

Using the adaptive ThreatSense® scanning engine to identify both familiar and emerging threats, your ESET security solution shields your data from trojans, viruses, worms, adware and spyware - while keeping your company inboxes free of unwanted email.

Solution capabilities

By scanning email traffic and mail store, ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange hardens your email server to malicious attack. The ThreatSense scanning core uses multithread processing to allow efficient concurrent scanning of email messages. Advanced heuristics uses layers of technology to identify a threat even if it doesn't appear in the signature database. Scanner operates at two levels: VSAPI (Microsoft's Virus Scan Application Program Interface) and at the SMTP server level, scanning all email traffic to guarantee maximum security.

Antispam technology uses several discreet processes (RBL, DNSBL, fingerprinting, reputation checking, content analysis, Bayesian filtering and manual whitelisting and blacklisting) to ensure total email threat protection, configurable for either global rules or specific mailboxes.

Small, automatic updates of the signature database and program components keep your network safe without slowing it down.
