JustTech’s Email Security provides protection for inbound and outbound email communications from outside threats.

  • Stops viruses, spam, phishing and other email related threats
  • Provides a web portal to access your email even if your email server goes down (always available, 24/7)
  • Daily email spam summary
  • Safe senders list

The back-end system we use for our Email Security service is Proofpoint. Proofpoint is an email protection system that blocks spam, phishing, and viruses from reaching your inbox. In addition, you can customize your settings to block and un-block specific emails.

Email Security is a filter between you and the outside world.

  • First the email originates from the message sender, to their mail server.
  • Then their mail server looks for your mail server in order to get the email to you.
  • Proofpoint acts as a mediator here and grabs the email first to scan it for malware, phishing attempts, macro enabled pdfs, and other threats to make sure it’s not going to hard your computer.
  • If it knows it’s trash or you have previously blocked the sender it sends it straight to the trash.
  • If it’s unsure, it places the email in a quarantine and sends the user an email letting them know it’s in there. From here the user can view this on a website to establish whether this is legitimate or not.
  • Once made legitimate, it then sends it to your mail server (Office 365, etc.), who then routes it to you.

Free email addresses and even paid email addresses like Office 365 have built in security measures, but this goes one step further to do an advanced scan of the email and provide even more security. 90% of cyber attacks start with email according to a data breach investigations report by Verizon in 2019.  Proofpoint also uses machine learning technology to accurately classify email threats, like many of our other solutions.
