Why Choose EveryCloud’s Spam Filtering Service?
According to data collected by Statista, spam emails accounted for around 59.3% of all email traffic in 2017 in the US alone. Spam costs businesses over $900 per employee annually due to reduced productivity, lost customers, wasted bandwidth and increased maintenance costs and with ransomware costs globally being $5Billion a year which is a 15 x increase in 2 years and expected to get worse.
Despite ever-stricter anti-spam laws across the globe and now with GDPR in Europe, spam email remains a major problem costing companies billions in lost revenue.
Businesses of all sizes need to do everything they can to protect themselves and their customers from spam emails. As such, spam filtering and ransomware filtering is an essential service for any company. By filtering out suspicious content, companies will be better equipped to manage the flow of their communications. At the same time, however, it’s essential to make sure that you’ll never miss important emails.
EveryCloud blocks 99.99% of spam emails, emails containing malicious software and even newsletters if required. As a cloud-based solution, it works wherever you are. It provides comprehensive reports, allowing users to view all inbound and outbound mailing statistics for the previous 90 days. At the same time, users retain full control over their email accounts, including the ability to define advanced filters.
EveryCloud provides spam filtering for Office 365, Microsoft Exchange and Google Apps for Work. Since the service is cloud-based, it blocks spam before it has a chance to get anywhere near your network, potentially freeing up thousands of business hours in the process. In other words, it makes certain that at least 99.99% of potential threats never appear on your own data storage resources.
Our spam filters work with all mail servers including MS Exchange, Lotus Notes and email clients to ensure that only the emails you actually want to receive end up in your inbox. At the same time, our automated spooling and delivery service ensures that you never lose important emails. You’ll be able to retain full control over your email accounts too, thanks to highly customizable spam reports and advanced content filtering controls.
Extended server downtime and power outages can quickly spell disaster for any company, particularly those that are responsible for maintaining their own resources. However, with EveryCloud email continuity, you’ll be able to keep a rolling 90-day archive of all inbound and outbound email. You’ll also be able to access this cloud-based archive whenever you need to using the POP, IMAP or webmail protocol.
The email continuity feature is an optional add-on for EveryCloud Email that you can activate in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, you can synchronize the system with the LDAP protocol so that your employees can retain access to the email archives using the same login details that they always use. Being a cloud-based solution, it also works on any Internet-enabled platform.
Businesses often need to deal with hundreds or even thousands of emails per day. Even when virtually all spam content is being filtered out, the load on your mail server and other computing resources can get very high. At the same time, legal obligations also require companies to maintain an archive of their recent email correspondence.
EveryCloud email archiving works a little like the email continuity service, except that it allows you to keep an archive of all correspondence for up to 30 years. It’s fully automated too, and you can even use it for archiving internal emails. Again, you can activate the service with just one click, after which you’ll be able to audit permissions to define access rights to your email archives.
Every year, countless businesses fall victim to hacking attempts, some of which end up costing millions.

Best of all, the plugin is available at no extra fee, and it works with any version of Outlook from 2010 to current editions.
Advanced Threat Protection
Protection against targeted attacks. Targeted attacks on a company are often difficult to detect and the costs for a business can run into millions if they cause damage. With ATP, you are protected from an early stage, allowing you to eliminate any attacks as they arise.
EveryCloud’s Advanced Threat Protection provides protection against targeted attacks with six engines.
What is a targeted attack?
An attack is regarded as “targeted” when the following criteria are fulfilled:
The attackers have a very specific objective,
The objective of the attack is to steal information from company servers by infiltrating the network.
The attackers have identified the objective precisely, planned the attacks over a long period and concealed them so well that they cannot be detected in traditional ways.
EveryClooud Advanced Threat Protection provides your business with effective security using targeted fraud forensics. The engines are used to prevent personalized attacks on employees in a company. Emails are analyzed for specific patterns of content that point to malicious intent. They include, for example, demands for payment and requests for the release of data.
The following detection mechanisms are used by EveryCloud’s ATP:
Fraud attempt analysis
Checks the authenticity and integrity of metadata and e-mail content.
Identity spooning recognition
Detection and blocking of forged sender identities.
Intention recognition system
Alerts are triggered in response to specific patterns of content that point to malicious intent.
Defense against attacks involving spying to obtain sensitive information.
Feign facts identification
Analysis of content independently of identity to identify messages that are intended to prompt the recipient to take certain action by feigning facts.
Targeted attack detection
Detection of targeted attacks on specific individuals who are particularly at risk.
Protection against ransomware
Protect yourself against harmful software such as Tesla, Locky and so on, which encrypts your files and demands a ransom to decode it.
The number of attacks using ransomware has increased steadily in recent years and has reached a peak since the start of 2016. Tesla, Locky, Goldeneye and so on have been the downfall of many targeted companies. According to BSI, a third of the companies surveyed have already been affected by ransomware and 75% of those cases were the result of infected email attachments. It is therefore particularly important to protect yourself against attacks of this sort. After all, not only costs to your own company can be caused, such as interruption to production, forensics or fines, but also external losses such as failure to comply with contractual conditions or meet delivery times. This affects customers, partners and employees and damages the reputation of the company as a whole.
EveryCloud’s Advanced Threat Protection protects you with:
This filtering mechanism checks email attachments for harmful code by creating a secure test environment (the sandbox). In this virtual, isolated area, potentially unsafe actions can be carried out and their effects tested. If it emerges that malware is present, the e-mails are sent directly into quarantine and the company’s IT security team is notified.
When EveryCloud’s Advanced Threat Protection classifies emails as suspicious but cannot categorize them definitively, freezing is used. Suspicious emails are temporarily frozen so that they can be scanned again with updated signatures after a short time. This also allows zero-day-exploits to be detected – as soon as the virus detection engines come across something in the second scan, the email is moved straight into quarantine.
