Lotus Protector for Mail Security features
Content filtering and email security
Use the latest IBM tools and analysis to protect your social platform, including IBM® X-Force® security data and phishing analysis. Use IP layer filtering to discard emails sent from suspicious IP addresses. A filter module and URL filter database detect malicious URLs. You can also inspect email attachments using behavioral analysis that takes preemptive action.
Efficient filtering technology
Design your platform for efficiency and speed, putting filters where they work best. A zero-level analysis module inspects streaming email and discards spam, helping to minimize the cost of writing content to disk and increasing filtering speed. Reduce spam and viruses to improve overall system performance. Block spam from your inbox and access more than 20 analysis modules for custom email scanning.
Personalized email control with IBM Notes
Give users personal control over email content sent and received. Block unwanted future emails from selected senders in the inbox. IBM Notes® enables you to view email blocked and stored at the security gateway to help recover content that was inadvertently quarantined. Manage personalized block and allow senders lists, and use Unicode analysis to enable content filtering in a variety of languages, including double-byte character sets.
Use a single, web-based console to manage email security, even in a clustered environment. Create policies for custom spam filtering, define senders and recipients, specify delivery and identify analysis modules to use and actions to take. Apply filtering rules to individuals, groups or domains. View centralized reports on demand or according to a defined schedule.
