Patented Anti-Spam Solution Delivers +99% Industry-leading Protection
Engate has pioneered a permanent solution to the spam crisis by eliminating the ability of spammers to hide their true identity. Engate’s patented network profiling anti-spam solution delivers industry-leading protection by preemptively identifying the spammer at the source and stopping all variations of spam and malicious payloads at the network level before the message is transmitted to the private email server and has a chance to drain network bandwidth, storage, processor and administration resources.
Engate profiles entire offending networks to detect protocol fraud and determines the legitimacy of a sender’s message before transmission to the private network by uniquely segregating legitimate mail servers from all other network hosts. This unique profiling functionality results in the highest level of performance in the market with +99% accuracy and virtually no false positives. Engate’s unique approach and leading database of network profiles gives organizations the fastest response to compromised hosts and new botnets the instant they emerge, ensuring preemptive and immediate protection against any creative tactic that may arise now or in the future.
