So you’re looking for a premium spam filter to rid your inbox of all that annoying spam and questionable attachments? We understand you, we’ve been there too.

As your business starts to really grab hold online, you need to start thinking about your online safety. Email is a very real attack vector costing businesses thousands of dollars.

Read on to learn why you should invest in a premium spam filtering solution.

Protect Against Spam, Virus, Phishing & Malware Attacks

First and foremost, this is the most important aspect of a premium filter; to protect you from spam, viruses, phishing and other malware.

One single infection can have a devastating impact on your business.

As per a recent study by the Stay Smart Online Australian Government Initiative, of 693,053 businesses surveyed, 33% had experienced cyber-crime.

Here are the average direct costs incurred by Australian businesses:

  • Phishing and Social Engineering – $23,209
  • Malware – $458.00
  • Virus, Worm or Trojan – $421.00

Other indirect costs include business disruption, information loss, revenue loss, productivity loss and equipment damage!

For a few extra dollars per month, it’s a sound investment by protecting one of the most critical communication channels for your business.

Email Continuity

If your email server is ever unreachable, a premium spam filtering solution will continue to receive your mail and will be delivered as soon as your email server comes online.

In addition, you can even read your queued emails, reply and even compose new emails even if your mail server goes down.

This provides an uninterrupted email flow and increased email continuity, helping prevent email from being lost or bounced back to the sender. 

Reduced Mailbox Clutter

We get it…spam is incredibly frustrating! It fills your mailbox to the point where spam management is an all-day task. Although, it doesn’t need to be this way.

A premium spam filtering solution is designed to block the bad emails, quarantine questionable ones and deliver the good.

Take back control of your mailbox.

Quarantine & Reporting

Maintain visibility over your domains inbound mail. Whilst premium spam filter solutions are intended to have outstanding detection rates with low false-positives, quarantine and reporting allows you to keep a close eye on things to ensure you don’t lose a single legitimate email.

Not only that, but a reporting system allows you to see how much spam and viruses are getting blocked before even reaching your mail server.

As an example, for the year 2019 so far, the average spam/virus detection rate that our premium spam filtering clients achieve is 80.55%. That’s a whole lot of spam you don’t need to worry about!

Whitelist/Blacklist Management

Fine-tune your spam filtering so that you can tailor it for your business. Need to ensure that email from a specific domain is never blocked, no problem at all. Have some annoying senders you wish to block, consider it done!

You’re probably thinking for such an amazing and feature-packed product that you’d be paying $$$, however, this certainly isn’t the case. At a price of $5.95/month per domain, peace of mind couldn’t come easier.
