    Multi-layered anti-malware capabilities

    • Multi-layered threat protection - cloud-assisted via the Kaspersky Security Network

      Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway includes the latest version of Kaspersky’s award-winning anti-malware engine. Furthermore, it receives real-time information from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) – so you benefit from a Linux mail server protection solution that delivers even better performance in detecting and removing malicious attachments from incoming emails including spyware, ransomware, wipers and miners, exploits, and as yet unknown specimens of advanced malware.

    • Malicious URL and IP address reputation-based filtering – cloud-assisted via the Kaspersky Security Network

      With real-time updates from the cloud, Kaspersky’s malicious URL & IP filter blocks emails that include links to infected sites or malicious files, and those sent from addresses reputed to be spam sources.

    • Detection of malicious macros/ActiveX controls in Office files

      Embedding malicious scripts into Office files is a popular technique used by extremely dangerous specimen such as ExPetr / Petya / NotPetya. Kaspersky Lab’s next-generation anti-malware provides effective protection against such threats.

    Anti-spam and content filtering

    • Anti-spam engine

      Kaspersky’s anti-spam engine includes two powerful technologies:

      Enforced Anti-Spam Updates Service (EASUS) – which uses push technology, directly from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network, to deliver real-time updates. By reducing the ‘update window’ from 20 minutes to less than 1 minute, EASUS helps to protect against Zero-Hour spam and spam epidemics.

      Cloud-assisted Reputation Filtering – can ‘rate’ suspicious emails, place them in quarantine and then recheck them when updated information becomes available. This helps to defend you against unknown spam – while also reducing the number of false positives.

    • Cloud-assisted anti-phishing IMPROVED

      Kaspersky’s new anti-phishing module receives real-time updates from the cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network – for more effective detection and blocking of emails that contain links to phishing websites.

    • Mass mail detection

      You can easily set policies to block unwanted mass mail from reaching your end users.

    • Anti-spam quarantine

      Suspicious messages are placed in the anti-spam quarantine, managed from the web interface. These messages can be reviewed later.

    • Spam Confidence Level rating

      For organizations using MS Exchange, the Spam Confidence Level (SCL) rating, which lets users define actions for messages according to SCL thresholds, is now included.

    • Improved character support

      Supports internationalized (non-Latin) characters in email addresses.

    • Unicode domain spoofing detection

      Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway now detects messages containing Unicode spoofing, which uses Unicode symbols visually resembling proper characters used in legitimate mail addresses and URLs.

    • Multi-layered archive protection

      Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway now recognizes and blocks certain types of files within archives and compound objects, providing detection inside multi-layered archives widely used by scammers.

    Integration support

    • Integration with Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform

      Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can be integrated with KATA – Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform. After integration, the application can send copies of messages to KATA for scanning. Based on the results of the KATA scan, the application can then block individual messages.

      Suspicious messages are placed in the KATA quarantine, managed from the web interface.

    • Integration with Kaspersky Private Security Network

      For those organizations that cannot participate in Kaspersky Security Network (KSN), Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway can now integrate with Kaspersky Private Security Network.

      After integration with Kaspersky Private Security Network, the application can use the KSN reputation databases locally, benefiting from the latest, globally acquired threat intelligence without sending any data outside the organization.

    At-a-glance monitoring and flexible reporting

    • Support for help desk function

      Help desk specialists can now access a user’s backup and personal deny/allow lists via a standard web interface, without disturbing system administrators or end users.
