It empowers service providers with complete control over message handling and policy enforcement at the network edge, stopping unwanted and malicious email traffic before it impacts the messaging and storage infrastructure and subscriber inboxes. Running advanced content filtering against spam, phishing and viruses, Cloudmark Gateway can process over three million messages per hour, up to 20 times faster than competing solutions. Cloudmark Gateway’s architecture dynamically scales to eliminate messaging abuse across a large number of machines at once and supports high availability and service quality at all times.

Consolidated Infrastructure; Reduced Energy Consumption for a Greener Network
The Cloudmark email security solution delivers a high performance messaging security solution with only a fraction of the processing resources of competitive solutions.

As a result, service providers need fewer servers and less energy to manage their email traffic, driving capital and operational savings while creating a greener network.
Open, Flexible Deployment; IPv6-Ready
The Cloudmark email security suite supports numerous messaging or business policy requirements by hooking into LDAP settings, databases, billing systems and other data sources. Workflow enhancements now provide even greater flexibility for managing granular policies, allowing service providers to customize policies on a per-user and per-business basis.
