Outbound Spam Protection

Cyberoam’s Outbound Spam Protection solution protects service providers from recurring incidents of outbound spam in their networks, helps reduce costs of providing service, provide a competitive differentiation, better customer service and enable getting higher revenue. Service providers include ISPs, email & web hosting providers, SaaS providers and free email service providers.

Outbound spam in service provider networks arises due to zombie computers, compromised accounts and legitimate spammer accounts And its consequences for service provider’s include higher costs of providing service and wastage of operations / IT time, inability to meet SLAs and blacklisted IP addresses.

Existing approaches to mitigate outbound spam include the use of standard inbound spam technologies in reverse, blocking port 25 or entire IP ranges and manual handling by the abuse team. These approaches are not effective and deal with the symptoms instead of the root cause and hence, are unable to identify the spammer source
