Email is the standard method of communication for enterprises today. In order to be able to utilize your solution properly, it is crucial to filter spam and malware effectively. As proven in a study conducted by the Aberdeen Group, managed services are significantly better for this than self-managed operating systems. Retarus has been comprehensively and reliably protecting email traffic for customers since 1994. Our global solution blocks viruses, spam and phishing emails with innovative methods, thus protecting your IT infrastructure from any external threats. Your employees will no longer receive unwanted messages. Retarus’ Managed E-Mail Services are developed in house and are continuously improved offering much more than just pure security features.

Maximum transparency is a must when providing automated services, especially when the outsourcing is of mission-critical parts of corporate communications.

Retarus Managed E-Mail Services feature multi-layered, strategically coordinated security technologies. Your company's entire email traffic is automatically scanned in Retarus' data centers for harmful or undesirable content. Spam, viruses and other malicious content will never reach your corporate network. By the way: According to the Aberdeen Group, managed cloud services filter viruses and spam up to four times better than self-managed systems.
Misdirected emails are rejected already by our systems. As a result, the processing time of incoming and outgoing emails is notably accelerated. Valid addresses are regularly synchronized with your systems.

- Dynamic traffic management through traffic shaping and traffic throttling mechanisms

Retarus' Antivirus MultiScan technology provides powerful protection against virus-laden messages and attachments by utilizing up to four different virus scanners. The redundant, high-speed scanners check incoming and outgoing messages automatically (including attachments) for viruses. By means of heuristic analysis we detect even as-yet unknown malware.
- Higher detection rate with the use of up to four virus scanners
- Protection against unknown viruses through heuristic analysis (Zero-Hour Protection)
- Eliminate threats before it impacts your infrastructure
- Virus definitions updated every minute

Our AntiSpam service checks incoming emails using continuously updated rules and tools for spam detection. Once classified as a spam message, depending on your service settings the Retarus service will mark the message or isolate it in the Retarus quarantine system. With our innovative technologies Retarus' multilingual anti-spam service will achieve a significantly higher detection rate than conventional anti-spam tools.

The digests, which we send you at individually definable points in time, provide you and your staff an overview of all intercepted spam and virus messages. From there, any message that is classified as spam can be quickly released from quarantine without the need to access a portal. Additionally, we offer online access to the Retarus quarantine with simplified user authentication (OneClick token login). This quick login makes it possible to search for specific messages. We also offer an online quarantine version for mobile devices such as BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Mobile.

Instead, inbound emails are stored in the Retarus data centers and automatically delivered to the intended end device once the retention period has elapsed. A bypass feature for high-priority emails and an emergency button both help to ensure that emails that need to be dealt with quickly are immediately delivered to the intended recipient.

E-Mail Size Reduction
Retarus E-Mail Size Reduction removes unnecessary parts, such as invisible elements in the header or alternative email body text (HTML, plain text), from incoming emails. File attachments are compressed automatically on request (ZIP function). These measures help reduce the size of inbound emails by as much as 30 percent, with no loss of information for the user. The simplified coding means better and faster presentation in the email client. And you save a huge amount on costly storage and backup capacity.
- Reduces data volume by as much as 30 percent

Data Leakage Prevention
The theft of sensitive data, for example production plans or customer contracts, can put a company's very existence at risk. With Retarus Data Leakage Prevention you can prevent data from being undetectedly sent out by email, thus protecting confidential data effectively. Users can only send out emails if a supervisory authority or a designated function mailbox is included in the distribution list. Checks can then be made on a random sample basis and/or if misuse is suspected. This enables you to meet compliance requirements efficiently.
- Definition of supervisory entities for email transmission
- Granular configuration options on profile, group and user level
- Definition of exceptions on the basis of blacklists and whitelists
