ITS Services Status / Activate Outbreak Filters on our IronPort appliances


Mail Filtering Service

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM

The Outbreak Filters feature will be activated on our IronPort appliances. This feature detects virus and phishing outbreaks based on broad message characteristics and mail flow patterns rather than specific signatures. It is non-destructive, and only quarantines messages for a limited time. It complements conventional spam an virus scanning, and should enable our IronPort appliances to catch phishing messages which currently leak through.

For further information, contact Donald Nash.
