Email Security Features

Email Security Features

Keep your users and business safe with instant protection from advanced threats. Our default settings get to work immediately, intercepting email containing suspicious content, attachments, and URLs.

Email Security Features

Live threat updates stop the latest attacks
Anti-malware engines that update hourly like Office 365 offer poor detection rates. Live updates by SophosLabs power Sophos Email filtering, ensuring you’re protected from the thousands of new threats sent every hour.

Inbound and outbound message handling
Sophos Email’s inbound and outbound filtering uses advanced detection methods across multiple languages:

  • Reputation filtering for the majority of unwanted email prior to inspection
  • Our anti-spam engine catches the rest, including the latest phishing attacks and malicious attachments – quarantining where required
  • Methods such as ‘Sender Genotype,’ our next-generation reputation filtering technology, eliminate botnet spam at the IP connection level through monitoring
  • Sophos Delay Queue provides protection against snowshoe spam, a preferred method of sending spam campaigns – Watch How it Works

Active Threat Protection

Active Threat Protection (ATP)

Sophos active threat protection (ATP) includes cloud sandboxing and time-of-click URL protection – driving advanced threat prevention to unmatched levels.

Active Threat Protection (ATP)

Sophos Sandstorm cloud sandbox
The best defense you can get against the latest threats lurking in phishing attacks and spam messages. Sophos Sandstorm is backed by the SophosLabs global network to provide detonation and detection of suspicious files containing active code, such as camouflaged executable files, PDFs, and MS Office documents, as well as high-level threats embedded in documents, including ransomware.

Lightning performance
Sophos Email anti-spam and antivirus security accurately pre-filters traffic so only suspicious files are submitted to Sandstorm, ensuring minimal latency and end user impact.

Dedicated virtualized cloud environment
Because it runs in a dedicated virtualized cloud environment, your network is completely free of any burden. This enables far more rigorous and resource intensive analysis that’s just not practical any other way.

Smarter protection from advanced threats
Sandstorm's deep threat prevention goes beyond traditional malware detection solutions with deep learning neural network analysis of executables, extremely aggressive and frequent memory analysis, extensive behavioral analysis scrutiny of all activity and API calls, and more thorough network activity analysis across all protocols.

Business Continuity

Business Continuity

When your email server experiences an outage, a power failure, or a disruption to a cloud-based service, Sophos Email provides the email continuity you need.

Business Continuity

Spooling ensures no mail is ever lost
In the event of a disruption to your Microsoft or Google Cloud email service, the recipient’s emails are automatically queued with Sophos Email, then delivered once service is restored, with a retry period of five days.

User access to 24/7 emergency inbox
In the event of third-party cloud email service provider outages, alerts are provided when mail can’t be delivered to a server/service. Email is then queued for delivery to ensure no email is lost, and read access to that queued email is provided from a 24/7 emergency inbox inside the end user portal.
