Powerful Protection against Spam, Viruses, and Email Threats

The Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker immediately stops spam coming into your business email, requires minimal management, and is backed by SenderBase services, a network database of email security threats.

This dedicated antispam, antivirus, and antiphishing security appliance is an easy-to-use solution designed specifically for small businesses. Other spam security products require time-consuming manual administration to be fully effective and can't match the accuracy of the Cisco solution.

Benefits

• Protect your business against dangerous email threats

• Improve the productivity of your employees by eliminating spam

• Reduce the time spent managing spam and email threat security

• Increase the performance of your network, servers, and personal computers by getting rid of unwanted email

• Reduce your liability for a spam or virus attack that is unintentionally propagated through your network

Features

The Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker provides:

• Precise accuracy ensures that email threats and spam are caught, and business email is delivered.

• Continuous automatic updates

The Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker stays in constant communication with SenderBase services, a database of email security threats. SenderBase is also monitored by a dedicated team of security analysts, ensuring that your Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker has the latest updates in place to protect your business email.

• Easy installation and use

With simple, browser-based setup wizards, the Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker can be installed in nearly any network in minutes, providing protection for your business right out of the box.

• Effortless management

Other antispam products require a lot of time and effort to achieve optimal results. With these legacy systems, you may have to create "whitelists" of safe email addresses, adjust settings to account for email filters, and constantly check to make sure legitimate business messages aren't being rejected. With the Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker, you get spam protection from the moment the appliance is installed, with no additional effort required from you or your staff.

• A complete solution for complete peace of mind

The Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker includes everything you need to stop email threats immediately (hardware, software, updates, and product support) in a single package. This allows highly skilled IT staff to focus on other responsibilities and leave the email issues to Cisco.

Spam and Virus Protection in Action

The Cisco Spam & Virus Blocker can be deployed in minutes, just behind your network firewall (Figure 2). Once installed, the solution uses award-winning filtering technology to process all email traffic coming into your business, and it identifies even the latest spam and malware attacks. Only clean, valid email messages are passed on to your employees.
