To remain competitive and improve adoption of additional services, ISPs, email service providers and web hosting providers must deliver a secure and trusted messaging environment. Cloudmark solutions automatically detect and block all forms of inbound and outbound messaging abuse, before it can impact subscribers, helpdesks, networks and infrastructure.

Because so many businesses view email as mission critical, email hosting has emerged as the number one service for web hosting companies. To remain competitive, providers must secure both their inbound and outbound SMTP environments. Cloudmark offers solutions to replace low performing legacy mail transfer agent (MTA) systems and enables augmentation of legacy MTA systems via a unique network-transparent SMTP technology.

Cloudmark relieves your network and email servers of unwanted traffic to reduce operating costs, infrastructure requirements and support calls. Customers will enjoy a secure and trusted messaging experience, improving brand loyalty and reducing churn.

Specialized for ISPs and Email Service Providers

  • Gain Control over SMTP Traffic

    Cloudmark provides a message security platform including a high-performance MTA with flexible anti-abuse MTA policy, combined with IP reputation, content filtering, and post-delivery spam cleanup capabilities. Flexible deployment options enable easy integration with internal and external data sources and all types of messaging platforms.

  • Eliminate Inbound Email Spam, Phishing and Malware

    Cloudmark’s unique fingerprinting technologies and real time updates maximize your inbound spam filtering rates while improving performance and security of existing mail store platforms and custom MTA investments. Cloudmark Security Platform provides the industry's most effective and highest performing security MTA, enabling full automated control over messaging abuse outbreaks. Cloudmark's easy-to-manage content filter provides anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-virus protection as scalable solution that consistently blocks over 99% of inbound messaging attacks in real-time with near zero false positives.

  • Prevent Outbound Spam and IP Blacklisting

    Attackers leverage botnets and compromised accounts to funnel outbound spam through ISP and email service provider networks via insecure MTAs or directly out to the Internet. These outbreaks lead to blacklisting of service provider IP space and results in increased support and remediation costs as subscribers raise complaints about outbound email delivery. Cloudmark Security Platform's powerful policy framework, combined with Cloudmark Authority’s fingerprinting engine enables real-time spam, phishing, and malware detection within the outbound traffic stream, helping to prevent the service provider network from becoming blacklisted. The Cloudmark Security Platform supports integration with external data sources, to enable malicious behavior tracking via RADIUS User-Name or compromised SMTP Authentication credentials. Compromised accounts are easily discovered and their message send attempts blocked, while alerts can be raised to the service provider abuse and security teams, improving outbound spam blocking rates well beyond what is possible with traditional MTAs.

  • Reduce Email Security Infrastructure Costs

    While providing the highest levels of filtering accuracy against all forms of messaging abuse, Cloudmark Security Platform requires significantly less processing power than traditional MTA or competing solutions, enabling significant consolidation of messaging infrastructure. Carrier-class flexibility and scalability provide the environment-wide management that service providers require. In addition, Cloudmark backs its solutions with a seasoned team of technical services personnel, support staff and professional services engineers that work only with service provider customers.

Specialized for Web Hosting Providers

  • Gain Full SMTP Traffic Management and Policy Control

    Cloudmark provides a messaging security platform, including an MTA with a flexible anti-abuse policy engine that enables vastly improved security and performance over legacy and open source MTAs. Cloudmark Security Platform includes industry leading content filtering and IP reputation — combined with the policy engine — to provide enhanced messaging security. Flexible deployment options enable easy integration with internal and external data sources and all types of messaging platforms.

  • Multi-Tenant Messaging Policy Support

    Cloudmark’s solutions easily support large scale multi-tenant environments, enabling fully customizable messaging system behavior on a per-domain or per-mailbox basis, including message routing, abuse message handling behavior, SMTP authentication, recipient validation, and enforcement of daily messaging limits. Hosting providers can integrate domain or user preferences via one of a number of external data source integrations, including databases, web services, LDAP directories, and other site-specific preference repositories.

  • Eliminate Inbound Email Spam, Phishing and Malware

    Cloudmark’s unique fingerprinting technologies and real time updates maximize your inbound spam filtering rates while improving performance and security of existing messaging platforms and edge MTA investments. Cloudmark Security Platform provides the industry's most effective and highest performing anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-virus protection. Cloudmark's easy-to-manage, scalable solution consistently blocks over 99% of inbound messaging attacks in real-time with near zero false positives.

  • Prevent Outbound Spam and IP Blacklisting

    Leveraging botnets, compromised or fake accounts and insecure MTAs, attackers are funneling outbound spam through web hosting provider networks. These outbreaks lead to IP blacklisting and the associated support and remediation costs as subscribers complain about outbound email delivery problems. Cloudmark's unique fingerprinting engine enables real-time spam, phishing, and malware detection within the outbound traffic stream, protecting the provide network from being blacklisted. Additionally, the fingerprints generated by the Cloudmark engine enable customer-wide statistical analysis of sending patterns of content, allowing acceptable use policies to be enforced. Working in conjunction with the service provider, appropriate threshold tuning of outbreak detection can be accomplished, improving accuracy well beyond what is possible with traditional rules or heuristics-based filters.

  • Transparently Manage SMTP Traffic from VPS/Dedicated Hosting Systems

    Stop the cycle of deploying additional hardware and gateway email servers to block inbound and outbound amount of messaging traffic and abuse. Cloudmark Security Platform can be deployed transparently, allowing for seamless, drop-in installation requiring no changes to the existing mail server network configuration. With Cloudmark’s full policy control capabilities and carrier-grade performance, this architecture delivers immediate reductions in inbound and outbound threats which legacy MTAs cannot contain.

  • Reduce Email Security Infrastructure Costs

    While providing the highest levels of filtering accuracy against all forms of messaging abuse, Cloudmark Security Platform uses significantly less processing power than other solutions, enabling significant consolidation of messaging infrastructure. With years of proven experience protecting the world's largest service provider networks from messaging abuse, Cloudmark's automated and highly efficient messaging infrastructure and hosted email security solutions minimize data center footprint and ease administrative burdens.
