Spam is a term that refers to any unwanted, unsolicited digital communication that is sent out in bulk to reach the inboxes of a large number of people. Spam often takes the form of marketing messages, but there are other more malicious types of spam which aim to spread malware, trick recipients into divulging personal information, or attempt to use manipulation and scare tactics to get victims to hand over money.
Spam is difficult to avoid; in fact, 45.1% of email traffic in March 2021 were spam messages. But how do spammers find us? Sometimes they purchase contact information or obtain them via software programs known as “harvesters” which, as the name suggests, harvest names from websites, newsgroups or other services where users identify themselves through email addresses. Spam emails have always been and continue to be a serious security threat, a general nuisance and a productivity drain for email users. Spam wastes time, patience, and resources with unsolicited communications and advertisements. Time spent dealing with spam has a quantifiable monetary cost as the time spent reading, processing, and deleting these emails adds up.
How Constant Edge Stops Spam
Constant Edge Spam Reports
Constant Edge enables effective, automatic protection against spam emails.
Constant Edge provides highly effective email filtering: the process of filtering inbound and outbound emails to prevent spam being delivered. Our inbound email filter scans email messages and classifies them into different categories, such as spam, bulk, virus, impostor, and more. Emails that fall into these categories are automatically stopped before reaching user inboxes. Our outbound email filtering uses this same process to prevent your mailboxes from sending out spam to your contacts and customers, which can be hugely damaging to your brand reputation if not stopped quickly and effectively.
