A phishing attack is a digital identity theft. Hackers send fraudulent emails which, for example, imitate the design of well-known Internet service providers such as Amazon or PayPal or of well-known banks. If the personal data requested is entered on the phishing website, it is sent directly to the cyber criminals.With the help of link tracking and other mechanisms, the spam filter service effectively protects users from phishing emails. Among other things, reloadable malicious script commands are detected. This enables detection of dangerous drive-by downloads, for example.

Bounce mail is the term used to describe messages automatically generated by mail servers that inform you about the absence of users or delays in delivery of emails, for example. Real bounces are useful, the problem comes from bounces that reach a user because sender addresses have been forged. Hornetsecurity Bounce Management ensures that only genuine bounces reach the recipient in incoming mail traffic. Bounces in response to spam with fake sender addresses are reliably filtered out. Reliable protection against backscatter and bounce attacks.
Dynamic Virus Outbreak Detection
New and previously unknown viruses are stopped by the early warning system. Hornetsecurity continuously analyzes incoming mails to so-called honeypot accounts (email addresses that are only intended to receive spam) for unusual attachments, links, senders or content. Derivation of signatures from this takes place within a very short response time (usually <5 minutes).
Multi-level spam detection, dynamic filter levels
In addition to spam blocking, incoming emails must pass through multiple filter stages before they are either recognized as authetic emails and delivered to the customer’s mail server or placed in quarantine, which the user can view via spam report or on the control panel. Guaranteed 99.9% spam detection, less than 0.00015 false positives per clean mail, and 99.99% virus detection guaranteed by 18 independent virus and phishing filters.

11 reasons why spam filter management with Hornetsecurity is so easy
Migration and integration without effort
Set up a domain, adjust basic settings to individual requirements if desired, set up MX records – done. The conversion to Hornetsecurity Spam and Malware Protection is completed in a few minutes. By connecting to the company’s own directory service (LDAP / AD), user data can also be synchronized automatically.
Are your employees’ mailboxes distributed over different mail servers, but all use the same mail domain? No problem! With Hornetsecurity Advanced Routing, mails are automatically routed to the various mail servers of the subsidiaries, locations, etc. Adjustable for users, groups or domains.
Central management of email signature
Via the control panel, the email footers of all employees can be maintained from a central location. This makes it easy to secure the mandatory information in business letters or to integrate current information for customers.
Modular expansion options
With just one mouse click, further Hornetsecurity services can be added (email encryption, Email Archive or the Continuity Service). The service grows with the requirements of the customer.
Spam report at configurable intervals
Users can tailor the delivery of their spam reports to their way of working and schedule them at specific times, even several times a day.
Emails in quarantine can be delivered from the spam report with a simple mouse click, regardless of whether they are alleged spam messages or infomails.
Good overview thanks to blocking
The vast majority of all spam emails are blocked directly, so that the quarantine and thus the spam report are kept very small. This gives the user a quick overview of current emails in quarantine.
Securing the email traffic you want
Hornetsecurity ensures that the emails you want reach their destination intact. And if our customer’s mail server is unavailable, incoming emails are stored for up to 7 days.
Easing the burden on the email server
Large parts of email traffic are unwanted and put unnecessary strain on the mail server. The Hornetsecurity spam filter only lets valid messages through, which significantly increases the performance of the customer mail server. The integrated virus filter also makes an additional protection system superfluous.
Less than 0.00015 false positives
The number of authentic emails accidentally classified as spam is less than 0.00015, meaning that out of one million emails scanned, a maximum of four are falsely classified as spam and quarantined.
Due to the high number of pre-blocked emails, the number of remaining spams in quarantine is small and manageable – if there is a false positive email, it can be found quickly in the clear spam report.
