NetGate Internet has partnered with Postini
to provide you the latest tools to prevent viruses and junk e-mail from reaching your computer. NetGate provides both Junk E-mail
Protection and Virus Protection services free as part of our commitment to bring you the best Internet Access service available.
These services are private and secure. The junk
e-mail and virus protection is an automated process. Nobody has
access to your e-mail except you. Nobody will read your e-mail.
Your e-mail is not censored, YOU control
the filter settings.
Postini's email security services process an
average of 80 million email messages per day, for nearly 4
million email users worldwide. This significant volume of email
is processed within milliseconds using complex rules-based
heuristics to analyze both the content and message header of
each message without compromising the security of the message.
Postini's ability to process messages in real-time enables
us to aggregate numerous data points from each message. By
analyzing this data against the millions of daily message transactions
we process from around the world, we are uniquely able to provide
the most statistically sound data sample for trend analysis.
Postini's Email Stat
Track provides a daily glimpse of spam,
virus and Directory Harvest Attack (DHA) statistics, as well
as a perspective on the global nature of spam activity and
other types of attacks.
Here is a brief overview of the Junk E-mail
and Virus Protection service:
- Your e-mail passes through Postini's automated filters
that detect suspected junk e-mail and viruses.
- Suspicious e-mail is directed to your personal, web-based,
password-protected Message Center (it does not arrive at
your computer's inbox). Think of this as a quarantine area.
In your Message Center you can read the quarantined e-mail
online, delete it, or deliver (forward) it to your inbox.
- Initially you should visit your Message Center often
because Postini "remembers and learns" from your interaction.
As time goes on you will be able to rely on Postini's periodic
notifications of your Message Center activity.
- Postini lets you "block" senders; meaning e-mail from
them will always be filtered. Or you can "approve" senders;
meaning their e-mail will always be delivered.
- The service is completely controlled by you.
