Recent studies show that spam email is costing companies millions per year in four main areas:
- Reduced productivity – spam wastes network users’ time dealing with unwanted email.
- Inappropriate material – spam often contains fraudulent, inappropriate and offensive material that could constitute an HR violation and leave you open to legal action.
- Drain on network resources – vast quantities of unwanted email has a devastating effect on the overall performance of your network by consuming bandwidth.
- Security threats – many spam emails contain malicious code, Denial of Service and Directory Harvest attacks.
The Comcare Sentinel Appliance has been developed in-house by Comcare Technology Ltd to combat this problem, ensuring that only legitimate and virus free emails reach your mail server.
