Lower IT Costs and Improve Productivity

Powered by Engate™, Computer Geeks offers both an appliance-based and hosted anti-spam solution that has proven effective in stopping over 99 percent of spam outside of the customer’s network – before the message is transmitted to the email gateway. This connection-level protection delivers immediate savings in capital and operating costs as a result of reduced bandwidth, storage and CPU cycles. Moreover, blocking spam at the network level improves employee and IT productivity by significantly reducing the time wasted dealing with spam, false positives, malicious attacks and phish scams.

 

Ensure Business Critical Email Delivery

Computer Geeks leverages Engate’s intelligent GlobalRules™ technology which uniquely profiles entire offending networks and provides immediate detection of compromised hosts and botnets. The patented technology is highly accurate in blocking established and new threats before they get inside the customer’s network and compromise IT resources, slow down network performance, crash servers and invade privacy. As a result, eliminating high volumes of spam at the connection layer enable organizations to increase the throughput and latency of their messaging systems as much as ten-fold. Engate’s proprietary rules operate in real-time and cannot be forged or adapted by a spammer's present and future tactics, protecting customers from new and ever-changing spam techniques with virtually no false positives.
