An administrator’s time is extremely valuable .The ideal product for an Admin is one where they can RUN the exe file, fill in one or two fields and ready to use.

  • Anti-spam software that requires little management

An ideal product in this case would be a product that can delegate a few tasks to the users themselves, as long as they don’t harm their work station or the entire organization i.e.: VIRUS

  • Scalability of the anti spam software

One of the worst things an administrator would want is a product that is very limited and one that would require a tremendous effort to accommodate corporate changes that are being applied. Scalability is important to guarantee 3-5 years of peace of mind.

  • Effectiveness at stopping email spam

Testing out the product during a Trial run is the only way to find out if the product is effective. Since approximately 68% of our daily mail is spam, you’ll definitely have conclusive results after just a few days.

  • Superior Quality of an anti-spam solution
