Unsolicited email is the leading cause of corporate malware infections and fraud
  • Infected attachments and phishing emails arrive in employee's inboxes on a minute-by-minute basis, and with 7 out of 10 mails received today being spam, this is a situation that threatens to overwhelm companies that do not have an effective mail filter in place.
  • Spam is also a productivity killer. If it takes an employee 4 seconds to open, identify and delete a spam mail, an organization with 300 employees receiving 10 spam messages per day will pay out for 102 lost days per year.
  • Spam slows legitimate network traffic to a crawl. By appropriating part of your bandwidth, spammers blunt your competitive edge. You could invest in a faster connection, but why pay for spammers to get quicker access to your employees?
  • Without effective protection, it's only a matter of time before any given network is infected. The sheer number of messages containing malicious attachments and phishing links make it statistically likely that a company will be hit by a spam-related threat at some point.
  • Employers have a legal responsibility to protect employees from offensive content. If pornographic, sacrilegious or socially offensive spam reaches an employee, then your business could be susceptible to litigation.
  • Your IT Team must handle every employee's spam-related complaint. This decreases their productivity and the productivity of the employee.

Comodo Antispam Gateway - KoruMail Cloud can reduce spam by up to 97%.

CASG features a centralized, web based management console which makes it easy for administrators to set up and control spam filtering on networks of any size. Administrators can quickly add users and domains, configure mail blacklists and whitelists, manage quarantined emails and configure multiple users groups and permissions. CASG features a comprehensive reporting system and also provides each employee with a login that allows them to manage their quarantined mail.

Initial setup is designed to be as painless as possible and requires only that Mail Exchanger (MX) records are redirected to Comodo's Antispam servers and that your mail server is specified as the end destination.

Why is CASG Better than Local or Mail Server Spam Filtering?

Better protection. CASG provides gateway filtering of email. This means messages are intercepted and filtered by CASG servers before being forwarded on to your mail server - ensuring a clean mail stream is delivered to your end users. Unlike a local antispam solution, unsolicited and virus-carrying mail never touches the corporate network.

Always up to date. As a cloud based service, CASG filters mail against whitelists and blacklists which are constantly updated in real-time. This offers far greater protection than periodically downloading whitelists and blacklists or having to occasionally update device firmware.

Easier to manage. CASG is outsourced antispam, so your business needn't purchase dedicated hardware that needs maintenance and updates. Admins just add their domains to the CASG console, point their MX records to the CASG servers and filtering begins immediately.

Frequently asked questions about Comodo Antispam Gateway - KoruMail Cloud
Keeping it simple, how does it work?

CASG uses the MX records in your domain DNS to direct mail traffic through our antispam servers first. This ensures that spam and virus-laden emails are intercepted and filtered out before they reach your corporate mail server. Messages that are clean or whitelisted are passed to your mail server from where they are sent to your users as usual. Messages flagged as spam are quarantined on our servers for users to review and release as required.

Can I control which emails are released from quarantine or are whitelisted /blacklisted?

Yes. CASG allows both administrators and end-users to release mail from quarantine and to specify whitelisted/blacklisted domains. The ‘Groups and Permissions’ feature allows administrators to specify whether end-users have the right to release mail or specify whitelists/blacklists. Users that do not have these permissions need to make requests to mail administrators to perform these actions.

Can CASG filter outgoing messages for viruses as well?

Yes. Comodo Antispam Gateway - KoruMail Cloud filters both inbound and outbound email. Optional outbound locking enables organizations to prevent spam from being sent from their mail servers.

How much of a "black box" is the CASG service?

Much of the operation of CASG is hands-off on a day-to-day basis. However, when occasions arise that need you to deep dive into an issue, our console lets you fully analyze the mail delivery queue and message transfer logs to track down how a message was processed. You can also manage the incoming callout cache, which prevents messages to non-existent users from being forwarded to your mail server.

Does CASG support Active Directory or LDAP servers?

Yes. User email accounts can be imported directly into CASG as a one-time operation or imported periodically according to a schedule.

Does email stay private?

Yes. email quarantined on our servers can only be read by the intended recipient.

What kind of redundancy is there in your solution?

If your mail server or its internet connection should go down, our service will cache and retry your messages for as many days as you configured for each domain (default is 4 days).

Can I restrict attachments on incoming messages before they hit my server?

Yes. You can restrict the maximum size of an email and restrict what types of attachments are permitted.

I have multiple email administrators. Can I set up different accounts and permissions?

Yes. You can add new administrators from the management console. You can also set their permission levels and periodically generate new passwords for them.

Can CASG 'discover' email accounts?

Yes. Just enable the relevant option and CASG will populate your email recipients table for you.

Can CASG filter outgoing messages for viruses as well?

Yes. Comodo Antispam Gateway - KoruMail Cloud filters both inbound and outbound email. Optional outbound locking enables organizations to prevent spam from being sent from their mail servers.

Can I just tag spam coming into my users' mailboxes instead of quarantining it?

Yes. You can use the subject notation option to add text to the subject of messages identified as spam. For example, ‘[SPAM] Get discounts on all the latest brands!’. In this case, your users' mail clients should be configured to move those messages to a spam folder. You can also specify notation for messages to be marked as potential spam.

I have multiple email domains. Can I manage all of them from the same account?

Yes. Depending on your license, CASG allows any number of domains and mailboxes to be managed through a single login.
