The ACSG Filter and Forward service is a combination of an email security gateway and advanced security layers that manages and filters all inbound email traffic to protect organizations from spam and email-borne threats. Our service utilizes industry proven technology from Fortinet networks who remains the leader in identifying and blocking spam. A comprehensive set of security layers ensures that organizations remain productive in the face of evolving threats. The ACSG Filter and Forward service leverages FortiGuard Labs to identify email from known spammers and determine whether domains embedded in email lead to known spam or malware domains. Its industry-leading techniques protect against attempts to embed text inside images with the intent of hiding content from traditional spam filters.
As virus attacks become more sophisticated, email infrastructures require advanced virus protection. The potential for the destruction and release of information, or the disruption of a network, severely impacts productivity and can lead to financial loss. The ACSG Filter and Forward service scans email and incoming files by using three powerful layers of virus scanning technology. It also decompresses archives for complete protection.
Email security remains a key productivity tool for today’s organizations, as well as a successful attack vector for cyber criminals. According to the Verizon 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 94% of malware was delivered via malicious email. It should be no surprise then that Gartner asserts that ‘Security and risk management (SRM) leaders must revisit their organizations’ email security architecture in the light of current email threats.’
