Work Smarter, Not HarderCipherTrust’s IronMail has helped some of the largest enterprises in the world stem the flood of spam to their end users, as well as address a host of other e-mail threats. IronMail’s unique Spam Profiler tool provides maximum effectiveness by scrutinizing thousands of characteristics of every message to determine a spam score. But the challenges for enterprises today do not stop at identifying and blocking spam. With spam volumes continuing to increase at an incredible rate, the new challenge is to more efficiently handle the huge volumes of mail, without increasing costs.The massive growth in spam in recent years is expected to continue exponentially well into the future. According to Radicati Group research, the average corporate e-mail user sends 34 e-mails and receives 99 e-mails every day, a 53% increase over numbers from just one year ago. E-Marketer expects the total volume of e-mail sent in 2004 to exceed two trillion messages, with steady growth rates of 13 to 15 percent annually through 2007. With this sort of massive e-mail volume traveling across the Internet and the reality that a vast majority is undesired, the need for accurate and thorough spam protection has never been greater.To handle the additional traffic, you could add more mail servers, or you could become smarter about how you utilize the equipment you already have, and double your return on investment. IronMail’s Connection Control is the first and only offering to combine network-based traffic shaping and reputation services to elegantly block e-mail from senders who consistently send spam. Reputation servers and traffic shaping are both emerging technologies in the fight against spam, and IronMail is the first product to effectively integrate them to fight spam and stop e-mail threats. And, Connection Control even offers an opportunity for a little payback against spammers.
Slam the SpammerConnection Control takes the fight to the spammers by forcing them to spend extra time and money to send spam. By removing the financial incentive of sending spam, IronMail forces spammers to rethink their approach or halt operations altogether. When dealing with spam assaults on their servers, network administrators can choose whether to take an offensive or defensive approach:
Innovation from the Leader in Messaging SecurityConnection Control features several proprietary technologies working together to help IronMail provide the fastest throughput in the industry:
Proven in the FieldCurrently in use at enterprises such as Cox Communications, Inc. (NYSE: COX), Connection Control dynamically rejects upwards of 50 percent of connection attempts from known spammers with dramatic results. But don’t just take our word for it. Franklin Warlick, Cox Communications’ messaging systems administrator, saw instant results when he installed Connection Control on Cox’s IronMail units, which protect approximately 60,000 inboxes. “CipherTrust’s Connection Control saved us valuable time and resources when we really needed them. This new technology in IronMail allows us to laser in on the worst offenders, and reject their spamming attempts at the network edge. With Connection Control, Cox Communications was able to reject 90,000 spam messages an hour immediately, giving us great bang for the buck from a product that already paid for itself many times over.”
