Sophos ZombieAlert™ Service provides your organization with an immediate warning if spammers hijack computers on your network to send spam or launch Denial-of-Service attacks.
The business challenge
Over 99% of spam now comes from zombies— hijacked computers — many of which are part of legitimate organizations. Spammers particularly target organizations with large, complex environments, such as educational and government institutions, as well as enterprises with flexible connectivity policies.
If your network's computers become zombies, you need to know immediately, so you can identify and disinfect them before your reputation is damaged and your outbound email is block-listed.
How ZombieAlert works
Our extensive network of spam traps collects unsolicited emails and the data is passed to experts in SophosLabs™, our global network of 24-hour threat analysis centers.
ZombieAlert immediately emails you with detailed message samples and IP address information as soon as the threat is identified. You can then quickly identify, disinfect and protect compromised computers.
In addition, ZombieAlert provides information on IP addresses listed in public Domain Name System Block Lists of known spammers, so you can take steps to get your network de-listed if necessary.
This service includes 24-hour telephone, email and online support, 365 days a year.
