Email is the most used form of communication over the web, and VIPRE Email Cloud is responsible for detecting and mitigating potential risks arriving by email. Big threats such as Ransomware and Phishing attacks come in email. Small issues involve Spam (which wastes time) or large file rejections (when users are denied to send files that are too big).
VIPRE stores your email in the cloud just in case you accidentally delete an email from your email service, helping you to retrieve a copy through the Cloud.
VIPRE enables you to reduce large rejection through this great feature: If users send a large file (outbound), that file can be scanned for threats and that file can be hosted virtually; the recipient can then simply click on a link to download it, rather than receive that attachment in their inbox. This method is used in order to bypass mail server rejections for file sizes that are too large (like Gmail for example).
VIPRE aims to make sure your incoming and outgoing mail is safe. VIPRE fights phishing attacks where both virus and ransomware can come from
VIPRE quarantines threats, and lets you see what was caught in both inbound and outbound email through its realtime detection function.
When recipients reply to your users outbound emails (which have been checked by VIPRE Email Security), the inbound email replies are also scanned for threats
Because there are vulnerabilities in Macros from Office 365 that a Macro can be hidden in, VIPRE offers protection. For example, an Excel document could contain Macros, so VIPRE Email Cloud could be used to detect and interdict Macro threats.
The VIPRE Email Security Cloud Edition is always working, so your emails are always available to you even if your exchange server goes down (thanks to the 90 day email storage feature).
Lets the admin go into the backend to see who deleted an email, what happened if user information changed, and other details necessary for investigating issues that may arise.
VIPRE Email Cloud is simple to manage and customize your user’s email accounts.
VIPRE Email Cloud can easily put / force disclaimers into an email (even if your users send emails from outside of work, disclaimers can still be forced).
What is required to provision VIPRE Email Security Cloud Edition for your email environment?
- You would need to give VIPRE the name of your organization’s domain that you wish to protect.
- You would need to give VIPRE the IP address of your mail server(s) for email delivery
VIPRE Security Inc would receive your mail, filter it, and then return all filtered traffic back to your mail server(s). This makes up the Cloud functionality.
What other requirements are needed to be performed?
You will need to:
- update your MX record(s) to point to VIPRE Email Security Cloud Edition
- update the SPF record (permitting VIPRE to send email on your organization’s domain’s behalf)
- update your Firewall settings so that mail coming from VIPRE Email Security can be received back in your organization
- configure your outbound smart host so VIPRE Email Security can filter outbound email
