Google Message Security (GMS) protects inbound and outbound email from SPAM and Viruses, delivers policy-based TLS Encryption, improves bandwidth utilization, and prevents Directory Harvest and Denial-of Service Attacks without expensive, on-site hardware and software.
Google Message Security provides highly effective inbound and outbound protection from SPAM and viruses. Scanning email and attachments in real-time using patented threat and spam detection systems, GMS discards blatant spam, quarantines suspect emails and viruses, and delivers messages deemed safe.
Delivered in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model, GMS requires no hardware or software installation and reduces administrative costs. As a service, GMS also prevents Directory Harvest and Denial-of-Service attacks, keeping your Internet connection free of damaging traffic.
By stopping SPAM before it reaches your network and server, GMS saves bandwidth and prevents wasted processing and resources on your email server. Performance improves; administration declines.
GMS includes Policy-Based TLS Encryption, providing server-to-server encryption of messages and attachments.
GMS supports aliases and distribution lists. Settings to manage sensitivity and actions may be set for the entire domain, groups of users, or individually. Content filters provide the ability to create highly customized rules for blocking or allowing specific types of email traffic.
Daily quarantine messages and a web management console provide easy to use tools for managing local, group, and global settings. LDAP and Active Directory integration is available for user account management.
Google Message Security is included in Google Apps for Business and is an option with Google Apps for Education.
Google Message Security runs with almost any in-house email server. GMS provides contingency spooling in case of network or server downtime.
