Spamming is the act of sending unsolicited message via electronic messaging systems. Unsolicited or unwanted mails not only consume your corporate Email bandwidth but can also negatively affect employee productivity. Therefore, enterprises need to keep the spamming problem in check. If not, spam can cause a lot of problems.
What Does Anti-Spam Software Do?
As the name suggests, anti-spam software prevents spamming. Once installed on your mail servers, antispam software will block spam emails based on several criteria like the sender’s email address, subject line, the message in the body, and the type of attachments accompanying the mails. Many anti-spam software use a list of habitual spam senders – known as spammers- and blacklist them.
But Anti-Spam Is Not Just About Preventing Spam Mail
Overtime spamming has evolved and it’s no longer just about annoying emails which hamper your enterprise’s growth. Now, spam mail poses security threats to enterprises. In other words, emails have become ‘gateways’ or ‘entry points’ for malware to infect enterprise networks. To stop this from happening, anti-spam software also prevents email borne malware from infecting enterprises by checking each and every email which passes through the network. Simply put, these security tools provide email security by monitoring your email servers.
