2 Layers of Protection
atmail’s premium antispam and malware detection solution combines atmail’s basic antispam layer of protection with our enhanced premium layer (powered by Cyren). Cyren is a trusted email security provider with 20 years of experience and a deep understanding of threat intelligence. Their technology safeguards more than 1.5 billion mailboxes and blocks more than 300 million threats daily – for industry leaders such as Google, Microsoft, Rackspace, Deutsche Telekom, Check Point, Sophos, Cox and IONOS (formerly 1&1).
Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD™)
atmail’s premium antispam and malware detection is based on Cyren’s patented Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD™) technology, which detects and classifies threat patterns in near real time. This time sensitivity is critical because most outbreaks have a relatively short lifecycle, measured in a few hours or less. So, by analysing new patterns in near real time, RPD™ protects your email platform from new outbreaks within seconds of launch on the internet globally.
RPD™ works by analysing identifiable characteristics and then grouping emails by distribution and structural patterns. Massive outbreaks which distribute spam, phishing and email-borne malware consist of many millions of emails (and their variants) which typically consist of at least one (but often, more than one) unique, identifiable characteristic. The characteristics are grouped into distribution patterns (which describe the sources and volume of the emails) and structural patterns (which represent the text, attachment and links of the emails) to distinguish the outbreak – usually with a great deal of certainty.
atmail’s premium antispam and malware detection also employs Cyren’s GlobalView™ Security Cloud. This technology processes over 25 billion email and web transactions daily from service providers, security vendors and enterprises across an integrated network operated worldwide from high availability data centres.
GlobalView™ applies AI machine learning, proprietary predictive analytics, behavioural analysis, heuristics and RPD™ to a massive stream of daily email and web transactions to detect outbreaks in near real time, rather than waiting for an update interval.
Given that 1.8 million spam emails are sent every second, this is a major advantage compared to feedback-driven, signature-based content filters and their derived IP block lists, which can expose your system and users to hundreds of thousands of threats in the fifteen minutes to four hours they can take to update.
