Keeping your mailbox safe from unwanted spam in 2020.


March 13, 2020

In this digital age, the sanctity of your mailbox is continuously under threat. The alarming fact is that the majority of malware finds its way into systems through emails. As we march forward into 2023, ensuring the security of your mailbox should be at the top of your priority list.

The Stark Reality of Email Threats

1. The Pervasive Menace of Malware through Emails

According to CSO Online, a staggering 92% of malware attacks are perpetrated via emails. This underlines the vulnerability of our inboxes.

2. The Disguise of Legitimacy

Symantec’s research points out that nearly half – 48%, to be precise – of malicious email attachments masquerade as ordinary office files. This makes discerning a genuine attachment from a malevolent one even more challenging.

MailGuard: Your Email’s Trusted Gatekeeper

Distinguishing between a safe email and a treacherous one can be akin to navigating a minefield. Enter MailGuard, our esteemed partner dedicated to fortifying your mailbox.

How does MailGuard function?

  • Initial Scan: Every email directed to your mailbox first stops at MailGuard. Here, it undergoes a rigorous scan for any malicious content or suspicious attachments.
  • Delivering the Verified: Once MailGuard confirms the email’s authenticity and safety, only then does it find its way into your inbox. This ensures your mailbox remains unsullied by harmful content.
  • False Alarms and Remedial Action: Technology, while advanced, isn’t infallible. On rare occasions, genuine emails might be flagged. In such cases, MailGuard promptly notifies you of potential false alarms. If you believe an email is wrongly quarantined, a request can be made for its release. Our vigilant team reviews such requests, ensuring no harmful content slips through.

If the safety of your email communications has been keeping you up at night, it’s time to act. Managed Services Australia is here to bolster your defenses against the incessant barrage of spam and malicious emails.
