Email Security

The use of email continues to grow globally at an enormous rate. An estimated 90 billion business emails are generated each day, with up to 15% being unsolicited junk email, or “spam”.

Aside from being an irritant, some of these messages could potentially carry dangerous malware which can threaten the security of your company data. In today’s business climate, it has become imperative that organisations deploy software with highly accurate, effective and dependable antivirus and anti-spam capabilities.

To ensure that your email is protected from malware, phishing, spam and targeted attacks, Blue Chip offer three Mail Gateway options depending on your number of users and business requirements, billed on a “Per Mailbox, Per Month” basis.

Whilst all of the Mail Gateway services available via Blue Chip will scale to address the requirements of any organisation, we recognise that discrete differences in functionality can have a significant impact on your selection.
