MIMEsweeper for SMTP

If you need up-to-date deep content inspection and filtering, we suggest you investigate the Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway first - our comprehensive, cutting edge solution which is built on MIMEsweeper technology.

Market-leading email filtering technology

Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP was built using the same MIMEsweeper content-aware filtering technology that powers the Clearswift SECURE Web Gateway and SECURE Email Gateway, but is packaged as software designed to run on the Windows Server platform.

Incoming and outgoing emails are checked for viruses, malware and content confidentiality. Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP performs deep analysis on attachments, detecting and examining content even in embedded files. By default, attempts to evade scanning using password-protected files or unauthorized encryption are blocked so no content evades, preventing circumvention of Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP.

Strong spam defense

Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP's SpamLogic technology delivers real-time protection against unsolicited email - with an accuracy of 99+%. Intelligent scanning and categorization of message source, content and destination are used to successfully identify and block spam.

For enhanced protection, clients can also purchase the Edge server running TRUSTmanager technology. TRUSTmanager rejects the majority of inbound spam by:

  • Verifying sender reputation against a trust database
  • Deflecting or quarantining low reputation mail before it reaches your email server
  • Scanning messages using Kaspersky or Sophos anti-virus to provide an additional layer of protection.

Maximum flexibility, easier administration

Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP simplifies the process of creating and managing effective policies. Multi-level, roles-based administration makes it easy for large, distributed enterprises to manage the sharing, storage and routing of incoming and outgoing email.

Granular policy control allows rules to be constructed for:

  • Individual users
  • Groups
  • Department
  • And locations.

Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP integrates with popular directory services to access information about different users and groups automatically. The synchronisation between spam policy and the corporate user base is always consistent as personnel change. Clearswift MIMEsweeper for SMTP also allows you to delegate management of sections of the message quarantine to individual users, saving considerable time on administration.

We do, however, recommend that for maximum security, flexibility and functionality, you have a look at Clearswift SECURE Email Gateway first.
