WorldPosta service has built-in, intelligent and effective anti-spam, anti-virus, and anti-malware engines. These systems are designed to protect every user under every account. WorldPosta filtering techniques help you to protect inbound and outbound messages against malicious software.

Admins don’t need to maintain the filtering technologies, as the intelligent systems are learning from users’ behaviors and act accordingly.

Anti-spam protection

All of WorldPosta accounts and users are protected with many layers of protection such as Exchange Online Protection (EOP) service. You may want to change the spam protection settings of a specific sender and tailor them to meet your needs, you can simply contact our support team to adjust it.

How WorldPosta Anti-spam works?

Our customers can easily change the settings of the messages sent by a specific IP or specific sender by contacting our support to add it to the White List or the Black List.

Our intelligent anti-spam uses advanced protection techniques to protect you’re your mailbox from the senders who are spoofing your domain.

b) Spam filtering: WorldPosta intelligent Anti-spam checks inbound messages for messages characteristics associated with spam using spam filtering techniques and takes action for the identified-as-a-spam items. Organization’s admins don’t need to configure the inbound filtering settings, but they can always contact WorldPosta support to add or remove certain addresses or domains from the allow/block list.

Anti-malware protection

WorldPosta online protection helps you to protect your systems against malware in your email messaging environment. Malware is comprised of viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, worms, ransomware, and adware. Viruses infect your computer and they spread throughout your computer looking for programs and other computers to infect. Spywares are malware that collects your personal information (sign-up information and your personal data) and sends them to the hackers and malware author.

WorldPosta service offers multi-layered protection against malware which designed to catch all known malware traveling inbound to or outbound from your organization.

 

The following options help provide anti-malware protection:


-Layered Defenses Against Malware
   Multiple anti-malware scan engines help protect against both known and unknown threats. These engines include powerful heuristic detection to provide protection even during the early stages of a malware outbreak. This multi-engine approach has been shown to provide significantly more protection than using just one anti-malware engine.

-Real-time Threat Response   During some outbreaks, the anti-malware team may have enough information about a virus or other form of malware to write sophisticated policy rules that detect the threat even before a definition is available from any of the engines used by the service. These rules are published to the global network every 2 hours to provide your organization with an extra layer of protection against attacks.

– Fast Anti-Malware Definition Deployment   The anti-malware team maintains close relationships with partners who develop anti-malware engines. As a result, the service can receive and integrate malware definitions and patches before they are publicly released. Our connection with these partners often allows us to develop our own remedies as well. The service checks for updated definitions for all anti-malware engines every hour.
