Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway lets you deploy a virtual mail gateway and integrate it into the existing corporate mail infrastructure. An operating system, mail server, and Kaspersky anti-virus program are preinstalled on the virtual mail gateway.
Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway protects incoming and outgoing email against malware and spam, performs content filtering of messages, and, when integrated with Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform (hereinafter also referred to as "KATA"), protects email against targeted attacks intrusions on the corporate IT infrastructure.
Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway:
Scans incoming and outgoing email messages for spam, phishing and malware, and, when integrated with KATA, scans messages for signs of targeted attacks into the corporate IT infrastructure.
Attack that targets a specific person or organization. Unlike mass attacks by computer viruses designed to infect as many computers as possible, targeted attacks can be aimed at infecting the network of a specific organization or even a specific server within the corporate IT infrastructure. A dedicated Trojan program may be written to stage each targeted attack.
A type of Internet fraud aimed at obtaining unauthorized access to users' confidential data.
Unsolicited mass mailing of emails, most often including advertisements
To ensure a faster response to new threats, Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway protection components can use information from Kaspersky Security Network.
An infrastructure of cloud services that provides access to the Kaspersky online Knowledge Base, which contains information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. The use of data from Kaspersky Security Network ensures that Kaspersky programs respond faster to threats, improves the performance of some protection components, and reduces the likelihood of false alarms.
Integration with Kaspersky Private Security Network (hereinafter also referred to as KPSN) for organizations where Internet access is restricted by internal rules and policies.
A solution that allows users of Kaspersky anti-virus software to access Kaspersky Security Network data without sending their own information to Kaspersky Security Network servers.
After integration with KPSN, Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can use the KSN reputation databases which will be used for scanning within the infrastructure of the organization.
A sophisticated targeted attack against the corporate IT infrastructure that simultaneously uses different methods to infiltrate the network, hide on the network, and gain unobstructed access to confidential data.
An attack targeting the corporate IT infrastructure by exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities in software. These are software vulnerabilities that hackers find and exploit before the software vendor has a chance to release a patch.
Solution designed for protection of a corporate IT infrastructure and timely detection of threats such as zero-day attacks, targeted attacks, and complex targeted attacks known as advanced persistent threats (hereinafter also referred to as APT).
After integration with KATA, Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can send copies of messages to KATA for scanning. Based on the results of a KATA scan, Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can block individual messages.
To purchase the Kaspersky Anti-Virus Targeted Attack Platform program, you can contact Kaspersky's sales team.
Detects and blocks spam, probable spam and mass mailings (including marketing mail-outs), deletes messages, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Detects messages containing Unicode spoofing. If Unicode spoofing is detected, the message is considered to be spam. The program adds the unicode_spoof tag to the X-KSMG-AntiSpam-Method message header.
Adds the X-MS-Exchange-Organization-SCL X-headers to messages, based on the scan results. This tag contains the SCL rating.
Detects, blocks, and disinfects infected email messages and infected attachments, deletes messages and attachments, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Detects and blocks messages whose attachments contain macros (for example, Microsoft® Office files with macros), deletes messages or attachments, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Detects and blocks messages containing encrypted objects, deletes messages or attachments, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Detects and blocks messages containing archives, recognizes the types of files within archives (for example, files in the ZIP, RAR, TGZ, 7z, and QZIP formats), and blocks individual files within archives.
Detects and blocks phishing or links to malicious websites, deletes messages, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Performs content filtering of messages based on the name, type and size of attachments (Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can determine the actual format and type of attachment regardless of its extension), deletes messages containing attachments in a specific format or with a specific name, or messages larger than the permissible size, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Detects and blocks messages containing signs of targeted attacks and intrusions into the corporate IT infrastructure (when integrated with KATA), deletes messages, and places copies of messages in Backup.
Filtering email messages based on message size, attachment file name mask, and attachment format. Based on the results of content filtering, you can restrict the forwarding of messages by the mail server.
