No More Trade-offs between Filter Accuracy and False Positives

The Ever-Increasing Threat of Email-Borne Hazards
In 2010, data showed >95% of email traffic worldwide was spam, with close to 95 BILLION Phishing Scam emails detected. Among these, targeted phishing spam seeking access to sensitive corporate information in increased 62% from the previous year.

Adding to these worrying trends, almost 340,000 different types of malware were identified in (a nearly 10-fold increase from 2009).

To any company, this causes the risk of:

  • Loss of Important business e-mails

    (false positives) caused by inaccurate spam filters.

  • Threat to Data Confidentiality

    caused by the emergence of malware and phishing e-mails.

  • Successful email-propagated Virus Outbreaks,

    which more likely than not to be a financial liability.

  • E-mail infrastructure overloading

    from spam waves or targeted distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.


    Despite the advancement in email filtering technology, many e-mail filtering systems fail to properly identify and isolate spam from legitimate emails, leading to not only a loss of legitimate business emails (False Positives), but also a failure in preventing Viruses, Spam, Bulk email, and other malicious content from reaching corporate networks.

    • 3
      Each Individual email’s “Fingerprint” is examined against the ShieldMX central Database Updated in Real-Time
    • 4
      If the same or similar checksums are identified, the e-mail is classified and deflected according to your preferences.
